Highlights & Tips

The Jungle green juice is a great starter juice for those who have not tried a vegetable juice before.  It has all the great green veggies like kale and spinach but adding in the apple give it a little sweetness!

It's best to bunch up the leafy greens tight when juicing them to get the maximum liquid out of them.

Add a little ice to the drink if your juice is not cold enough.

Health Benefits

Kale is the vegetable you want to juice if you are looking quick health benefits.  To start with kale is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet.  Loaded with powerful antioxidants and high amounts of vitamin C.  It is also known to lower cholesterol and aid against heart disease.

Fresh spinach brings a multitude of antioxidants, it lowers glucose levels which is great for diabetics and contains high levels of zinc, calcium and iron.

Parsley helps prevent cancer, helps with arthritis and boosts the immune system.

Recipe Supplies

Product Containers.jpg

The best way to make juice quickly is to have your fruits and veggies washed and ready to go in stored containers in your refrigerators.

Purchase your own juicer for home to quickly whip up a fresh glass of juice.  There are so many juicers on the market but you can start with a simple one that is inexpensive to see if juicing is for you

Presentation

You can use any kind of glass for this juice.  We like tumblers because its easy to drink but if you want to add any powder supplements of protein powders use a blend bottle.

Budget Tips

If you want to save a little money make your own juice.  If you buy your produce in bulk and clean and prep things yourself you will save a little money.  I purchase some of my vegetables at a club like Costco or a local farmers market.  I'm blessed to live near a weekly farmers market and know several vendors who give me a deal on fresh veggies if I buy bulk and buy often!    If a farmers market is not available try asking your local grocery manager if they can get a bigger pack size of fresh fruit and vegetables.  You would be surprised what you might find!    

Storage Recommendations

Storage is VERY important when holding on to your juice!  First it's important to know if using a centrifugal juicer your fresh juice will only be good for 24 hours if sealed in a tight jar or bottle in the refrigerator.  If using a masticating or cold press juicer you can hold onto your juice for 3-4 days in a refrigerator.

Its best to drink your fresh juice right away but if you can't place it in a tight sealed jar or bottle with little air.  The sooner you drink your fresh juice the more antioxidants, vitamins and minerals you will consume!

What to do with left over's or extra product?

Use your extra kale to bake off kale chips.  You can make a lovely green salad or make a Buddha bowl with your fresh kale and other yummy vegetables!  

Add your spinach to a tofu scramble or sweet potato hash.

If you have left over apples, make apple chips with a dehydrator or oven bake them.

Make sure you clean and wash your vegetables and fruit before you make your juice.  This is especially important because you will be consuming this juice in it's natural raw state, the way nature intended and no one wants to get sick!

Step 1

Step 2

Once your vegetables and fruit are cleaned make sure they are cut if needed to fit in your juicer.  (Depends on the juicer you have)  

It doesn't matter what order you juice your vegetables and fruit although I tend to juice one vegetable at a time then move onto the next.

RECIPE TIPS

The key to making any juice is to be prepared to make them quickly.  That means have your fruits and vegetables washed and ready to grab and extract your juice when you are ready!  I always wash my produce then place them in food containers in the refrigerator so I can quickly get them when I need them!  If you want more juice/liquid use more cucumber or carrots.
