This green juice is perfect for beginners because is made with simple ingredients and tastes so good. It's a super healthy and nutritious drink!
We have a new juicer, yay! It's the best juicer we've ever tried, so I thought it would be a great idea to make a green juice for beginners. It's super healthy, but also tastes awesome.
Fruit juices tastes amazing, but they're so full fo sugar, that's why it's better to drink green juices on a daily basis. Green juices don't taste as good as fruit juices and they can have a strong flavor, but if you learn how to make them, they can be delicious as well.
When I make green juices I always use one or two pieces of fruit (apples, pears and lemons are my favorite ones), leafy greens (spinach is the best choice for beginners), some vegetable with a high water content (like cucumber or celery) and other ingredients to make them even more nutritious (ginger, turmeric, superfoods, etc.).
I'm in love with this juice because is made with simple ingredients (if you can't find fennel, add more celery instead), is also pretty inexpensive and so tasty. You really need to give it a try!
We hosted some workshops about juicing and making plant milks last year here an Spain, so I've been thinking about making an ebook about these topics. What do you think? If you're insterested, please leave a comment below!

Green Juice For Beginners
- 2 pears
- 2 handfuls of fresh spinach, about 1.5 oz or 40 g
- 1 stalk of celery
- 0.5-inch piece of ginger root
- ¼ fennel bulb, or 2 stalks of celery
- Wash and chop all the ingredients. You don't need to peel the pears or the ginger root, although if they're not organic you should.
- Put everything through the juicer.
- Our juicer has a strainer, so we don't strain the juice, but if your juicer hasn't one, maybe you want to strainer your juice to get a better texture, it's up to you.
- This green juice is better fresh, but you can also keep it in a jar or sealed container in the fridge for up to 72 hours. Fill your juice to the top of the container to prevent oxidation. Feel free to freeze it for up to a week, but don't fill the container to the top or it could explode.
- Apples are also a great choice.
- Use any leafy greens you have on hand, although spinach is the best for beginners as it hasn't a strong flavor.
- Feel free to add other ingredients like cucumber, lemon, turmeric root, superfoods, etc.
- If you don't have ginger root, add some ground ginger to taste.
- Nutrition facts for this recipe are a rough estimate.

You don't need a fancy slow juicer (mascerating) or any other high priced juicer to get great juice.
I use my Vitamix, then strain through cheese cloth if I don't want all the pulp.
Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. The fiber is very good for you.
You put 1/2 - 1 cup water in the Vitamix, then add your fruit (apples, oranges, pears). Then add your greens on top, spinach, kale, parsley, some ginger, and then top with ice on the top (1 cup) maybe less.
Then blend for 2:00 - 2:30 until it becomes completely blended.
You can then use a strainer to keep the pulp out, or use cheese cloth to strain through, then squeeze the remaining juice out of the pulp.
I've been doing this since I got my Vitamix, and the huge benefit is the fact that the cleanup is quick. Just wash/rinse the blender, and toss the scraps from your preparation, and your done in just a few minutes unlike juicer you have to dissasemble or scrub screens out.

Thanks for your comment Brian 🙂 Have a nice day!
I wanted to know what juicer you are using ?? and how long have you been using it? I'm having a hard time finding the perfect one, and I love that yours strains as well. Thank you.
Hi Lashaun! I've been using this one for I think over 2 years: https://www.vitality4life.com/biochef-atlas-pro-whole-slow-juicer/ You can use a strainer after making your juice to get the perfect texture 🙂
Carrol Bethune says
It's time consuming and very inexpensive. Very good juice
Hi Carrol! I don't think so. I glad you liked it, though 🙂
In my quest to find a reliable method to keep my weight under control, and since I'm already a vegan, I came to the world of juicing. Yesterday I found what appears to be a good Breville juicer over on Amazon. Any thoughts on this one?
Hi Rebecca! I haven't tried it, so I can't help you, sorry!

One thing I would really like to discuss is that weightloss routine fast can be carried out by the correct diet and exercise. Your size not just affects the look, but also the complete quality of life. Self-esteem, despression symptoms, health risks, as well as physical ability are affected in weight gain. It is possible to do everything right whilst still having a gain. If this happens, a condition may be the perpetrator. While a lot of food instead of enough physical exercise are usually accountable, common health concerns and widely used prescriptions can certainly greatly increase size. Thanks a bunch for your post in this article.
Hi Katharyn! Thank YOU for your comment )
Tried this juice today, I was a little skeptical because I'm not a fan of celery. But it's perfect, tastes really good. I think it's great that you also use ml, g and cm in your recipes, which makes it easier for some of us 🙂
Regards Maria from Denmark
Hi Maria! So glad you liked it 🙂 I'm Spanish, so I've always used ml, g and cm 😉 Have a nice day!
Best Juicer says
I currently juice spinach, green apples, red apples, carrots, pineapple, cucumber, ginger and lemon. Are there any fruits/vegetables that should not be juiced together? Are they considered high calorie?
Hi! You can juice any fruit you want, but it's better not to use more than 2 pieces 🙂
Nicole Gutierrez says
I think that is a great ebook topic! My friend let me have a Hamilton beach juicer, not the greatest but it sure beats paying for it at a juice bar 🙂
Hi Nicole! Thanks a lot for your comment 🙂 Have a nice day!
