When it comes to juicing leafy vegetables, most people will gravitate towards adding kale, spinach, and mixed greens to their recipes. With so many great options, cabbage can easily be overlooked.

This cabbage green juice recipe includes apple and lemon for taste, as well as kale, celery, and chard to really take the nutritional value to the next level.

Why We Love This Cabbage Juice

Whether you’re eating cabbage that is fermented, raw, or juiced, your body (and your customers) will thank you for the boost of valuable vitamins and nutrients.

Here are some major health benefits of drinking cabbage juice regularly:

  • Anti-inflammatory.
  • High in Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and Vitamin A, and Vitamin U.
  • Aids in Digestion.
  • Lowers blood pressure.
  • Improves heart health.
  • Boosts immune system.
  • Helps maintain weight loss.
  • Promotes detox in the body.
  • Assists in preventing stomach ulcers and peptic ulcers.
  • Packed with amino acids.

As always, we encourage you to experiment on your own with adding ingredients such as red cabbage, red apples, blueberries, or even oranges,just be mindful of the color... if you mix red and green ingredients you will get brown juice! One of the greatest parts about making your own fresh juice is that you can customize it to your liking.

Health Benefits

  • improves digestion
  • lowers cholesterol
  • antioxidant
  • cancer preventative
  • cardiovascular support
  • detoxifying

Ingredients

  • green cabbage
    1.22 oz
    2 medium leaves
  • green apple
    8 oz
    1 1/3 medium apples
  • chard
    2.33 oz
    1 1/2 leaves
  • kale
    1.9 oz
    3/4 cup, chopped
  • celery
    1.33 oz
    1 medium stalk
  • lemon
    1.78 oz
    1 small lemon

Directions

  1. Wash all produce. Make sure all of the dirt is removed from the kale and chard before putting it in your juicer.

  2. Cut the lemon and place directly in the press. If you do not have a juice press, peel and juice with the rest of the ingredients.

  3. Grind and press the remaining ingredients together.

Pro Tips

  • Leave the stems on the leafy greens – they typically contain a lot of flavor and juice.
  • Avoid peeling the apples because the skin is high in antioxidents.
  • Experiment with using peeled lemons and with leaving the peels on, and notice the difference in flavor.
  • You can swap green cabbage for red cabbage if necessary, but the color won't be quite as pretty.
  • You will want to use a white chard (green leaves, white stem) and not the rainbow chard or red chard as these variations will turn your juice an unpleasant color.

    1. Hi Natsuki,

      Great question! Our Chef Ari formulates these recipes by balancing the health benefits with the flavor profiles. It is hard to find a great tasting green juice recipe with cabbage, so we definitely wanted to include it in the name so people can find it. Cabbage has a very strong flavor and when a lot is consumed, it can cause abdominal discomfort in some people so our chef included just the right amount. In addition, most juices are created using a “base” juice. Green apple is the ingredient in this recipe that makes up the “base”. You can read more about how our chef formulates recipes in this article here: https://www.goodnature.com/blog/implementing-made-to-order-pressed-juicing/

      Happy Juicing! 🙂

      Cabbage juice is known to be good for helping to heal ulcers. I would recommend increasing the amount of cabbage a bit if using this recipe. You can read more about remedies for ulcers here: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/stomach-ulcer-remedies#TOC_TITLE_HDR_2

    I have not yet tried juicing but I ran across this recipe while looking for foods and drinks that can help with inflammation as I have Lupus. I’m on a budget with limited space, time and energy, but I want to start juicing as I understand it can help with several of my Lupus related issues. Which juicer would you recommend?

    1. Hi Susan,

      Juicing is a great way to help reduce inflammation. I too have inflammation and I am managing it with diet and supplements including a 5 oz juice every morning. I always say the best juicer is the one you will actually use…and it really depends on your budget. I will send you an email so we can chat further. 🙂
