This recipe is inspired by one of my favorite juice bars, I Love Juice Bar, which was once had a location in Huntsville, Alabama.  Their menu included juices, smoothies, smoothie bowls, power shots, and other items such as quinoa bowls, spring rolls, overnight oats, sandwiches, and pad Thai noodle bowls.

I absolutely loved their Ginger Greens which is a mix of ginger, apple, spinach, cucumber, parsley, and lemon.  I could drink it Every. Single. Day.  Which is one of the reasons that I had to learn how to make a version at home.  That and because I don’t live in Huntsville.

And another reason that I decided that I really needed to learn how to make it is that my husband was diagnosed with ampullary cancer early 2019.  After doing some research and reading books like Chris Beat Cancer: A Comprehensive Plan for Healing Naturally, I believe that the best defense against poor health is a good defense.  One way of building up one’s natural immunity is by eating well and exercising.  (There is so much more, but that is a good start.)

Investing In a Juicer

To get fresh juice at home meant that I would have to purchase a juicer.  There are a lot of models out there ranging anywhere from $50+ to thousands of dollars.  I looked at the warranties on lower price models and decided to go with Hamilton Beach’s Big Mouth Juice Extractor.  It was less than $60 and came with a 3-year warranty.  I felt like I had nothing to lose.

apples, lemon, cucumber, ginger, and parsley

I wasn’t quite sure of how much to buy, so I ended up getting 2 – 2-pound bags of apples, a couple of organic cucumbers, parsley, a lemon, and a small (5 ounce) container of spinach and kale (blend).  When it comes to apples, Gala apples and Red Delicious work well.  I have thrown in some Granny Smith apples, too, along with the red apples.

The Big Mouth Juice Extractor does have a wide mouth, but I have found it necessary to cut the apples before placing them in the chute.  (I like to quarter them.)  One of the nice things about this machine is that you don’t have to peel your fruit or vegetables – you just stick them in.  (Note:  I recommend peeling any fruit or vegetable that is not organic to remove as much pesticide, fertilizer, or fungicide that could be lingering on it.)

What Is In Green Juice?

Though kale isn’t in the juice at I Love Juice, it works quite well.  If I can’t find a spinach/kale combo, I just use spinach.  When you buy organic, it has more than likely been washed a time or three, but sometimes I like to rinse it off some more and then spin it down to remove the excess moisture.

Cucumbers – I prefer to buy organic, but sometimes that just isn’t an option.

Half a lemon is all that is needed for this delicious fresh juice.  One thing to note is that it needs to be peeled before putting it in the juicer.  (This is the only fruit/veggie in this recipe that needs to have that done before processing.)

Ginger and Greens

Truth be told, most times I omit the parsley.  That’s because I forget to get it.  Plus, it still tastes good without it.

If you try this, one thing I must caution you about is that if you use too much ginger, the juice will have a definite “bite” to it.  Go easy the first time that you make it.  I would recommend making your first batch with about 1.5″ – 2″ of fresh ginger.  No need to peel it.  Just rinse it off really well before putting it in the chute.
