Healthy Green Juice
Do you see green juice around and think, hmmm, I don’t know? Personally, I wasn’t skeptical but more intrigued to what they can taste like. I love all the healthy additions that go into this easy green juice recipe, so I decided since I have my new Hamilton Beach Premium Big Mouth® 2 Speed Juice Extractor, I was going to give a Healthy Green Juice a whirl!
Our daughter loves fresh juice anyway she can get it, so this one was a sure-fire hit. She loved the color and taste. You get a little bite from the ginger, which I like. The fruit gives it a wonderful sweet flavor. This is a really healthy way to take in your fruits and veggies and a few extra ingredients too! Check out our video to see all that goes into making this amazing Healthy Green Juice!
Do your kids bulk at veggies? Putting them into juice and calling it a fun name like “Green Wiggle Juice” will get them into many vegetables that they might never try. They will love seeing the juice being extracted and the fun and gorgeous color that they turn. That bright color is my favorite green, so springy feeling too.
The apple cucumber combination is refreshing and like a green smoothie. A good idea in making these veggie and fruit juices is to have a quality juicer!
Hamilton Beach Premium Big Mouth® 2 Speed Juice Extractor
This is a very handsome and sturdy machine! It has the power to do whole foods. I did core the apple but I bet you could get away with putting it in whole too. It has an extra-large pulp bin which I like for juicing large amounts.
I found a big box of oranges on sale (in the late winter and early spring, January to April is the time for sweet navel oranges) and will be doing those up real quick! I add in carrots to that juice and again ginger. The kids also love this juice! So delicious!
Is Green Juice Really Good For You?
The consensus is in, and yes, green juice is healthy for you and this recipe is also gluten-free! !! Into this juice, I added ginger, which I love the calming effect it has on your GI system. There are also many other benefits to ginger, like heart health and so much more!
I also added a bit of turmeric for its health benefits of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Tumeric can help with healthy digestion also. I have made and enjoyed this juice three times now and can’t wait to make it again!!
There are a lot of vitamins and minerals always associated with healthy juices. For nutritional information, just the green apple alone has vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, K, folate, and niacin.
Just think of all that immune-boosting you will be getting from all the added fruits and vegetables you can now enjoy in a whole new way. Besides these benefits, it can also help in weight reduction.
Juices like our Healthy Green Juice are highly digestible taking as little time as 15-20 min. therefore giving you a really almost instant boost.
Juice cleanses have been popular for many years now but for me, I just love a great glass of delicious fresh homemade juice. Plus, I feel good giving this to my family too. Everyone is excited when I pull out the juicer as they know they will get a delicious juice like this one in a matter of minutes.
I love so many Hamilton Beach items, we have a house full of reliable Hamilton Beach products. This is just adding to my collection. For the most part, they are very lightweight compared to some other companies, which makes storing them and pull them out so much easier.
Does Green Juice Help You Lose Weight?
As we touched on yes, green juice can help you lose weight. This occurs because they help speed up your metabolism and start to burn those unwanted calories.
Not just for weight loss but also consider juicing for detoxification, kale juice is another one to consider. The easiest way to add in a massive amount of green nutrients is with green juices.
Adding in juices like this on a daily basis will also help with chronic illnesses and heart disease. But to me, best of all is that they can still taste great!!
