Gwyneth's Green Juice




Please forgive me if this is the 1,000th green juice you have seen. I've seen tons myself, but this is the first green juice I have ever made (as opposed to a green smoothie) and it is SO good and easy to make that I just had to share it. This juice is from Gwyneth Paltrow's new cookbook, "It's All Good." I personally couldn't think of a better way to describe this drink. It's full of calcium and antioxidants, it tastes like lemonade (no joke) and no juicer is needed! YAY! I made this in my Vitamix I'm pretty sure it turned out the same as if I would have used a juicer. Gwyneth's recipe included a sprig of mint, but I didn't have any on hand when made the juice. It still turned out great!

To make the juice with a juicer, simply push all of the ingredients through a juicer. 

If you don't have a juicer, blend the ingredients up in a blender with 1/2 cup of water. Pass the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer. 

Drink immediately as it gets bitter as it sits. Your taste buds and your body will thank you!

  4. OK I am sorry but these do not hold a candle next to the blondies..lol. But thanks for the info because though I am not a "juicer" I made my first ones a few days ago and really liked them...and think this might become a more regular gig! At least until I can go back to making blondies again lol.

  8. This looks delicious!! What juicer do you have? My juicer doesn't share a love of kale with me and it seems it's about time for an upgrade. Any suggestions? Thanks again!

    1. I have a Vitamix as opposed to a juicer. I like to make smoothies as well, so the Vitamix works better for me. I hear that the Breville juicers are good!

  9. What a beautiful blog you have, and such lovely photos of Gwyneth's green juice! I just got her book and LOVE IT, and was prowling the internet for an online version of her green juice. That's how I found you! I hope you don't mind me using one of your images in a blog post about an upcoming detox for the New Year. I credited you and linked to this post. Please let me know if this is a problem. Take care! http://femfusionfitness.com/new-years-detox/

  10. I was getting out of shape, so I decided to make a change and do some research on getting my core system and "guts" back into shape before working on my muscles. Green drinks helped me with that.
