Kelley Family Favorite Green Juice

This is a great way to eat your greens and feel good! My sister and I try to drink a glass every morning. It’s sweetened with apples, and the lime and ginger give it a little zing that cuts right through the greens. One of my weekend tasks is to make a big batch of this for the coming week (we freeze what we can’t drink that day). If you are looking for ways to feel good all day, drink this!

Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 generous cup
Author Amber Kelley


  • 3 to 6 cups/450 to 900 g greens such as spinach, chard, and kale (according to taste)
  • 1 lemon peeled and quartered
  • 1 1/2- to 1-inch/1.5 to 2.5 cm piece fresh ginger peeled
  • 2 apples sliced (including the core/seeds)


  1. Following the instructions for your juicer, alternate juicing between the greens, lemon, ginger, and apples, so that nothing gets stuck or jammed. Give the juicer enough time to juice before adding more fruit or greens.
  2. To get the most nutrition from your juice, drink it immediately. It will store in the refrigerator for a day, and it’s best if you keep it away from the light and exposed to as little air as possible. We use a FoodSaver vacuum sealer with a mason jar attachment to store excess juice in the fridge, or we pour it into a resealable freezer bag, remove as much air as possible, and freeze. The night before you want to drink the juice, remove the bag from the freezer and place in the fridge to thaw.
