two glasses of cold pressed green juice surrounded by ingredients to make green juice recipe

This “gateway” green juice recipe is perfect for those of you looking for an easy break into drinking green juice (and enjoying it). We like to use this recipe when we give demonstrations on our juice presses. It uses a nice range of fruit and vegetables, showing the capabilities of the machines, plus it tastes great. Some even think it tastes like a healthy version of Mountain Dew soda!

Preparing Produce for Juice

A lot of people automatically think they need to remove the skin from pineapple. When you juice on our presses, you don’t have to! And that’s a good thing, because pineapple skin actually contains a high concentration of valuable nutrients that have great health benefits. Pineapple contains a powerful enzyme called bromelain, and there is a higher concentration of it in the skin than in the actual flesh.

The lemon in this recipe can be used with or without the peel, it’s more of a preference thing.  If you’re going for a stronger full-flavor experience, leave it on.

Equipment note: We used the M-1 commercial juice press to make this juice recipe, but you can use pretty much any type of juicer. Just keep in mind that the quality will always be higher when using a juice press.

Ingredients

green apple 8 oz 227 g 1 1/4 medium apple
kale 4 oz 113 g 2 cups chopped kale
celery 4 oz 113 g 2 1/2 medium stalks
pineapple 3 oz 85 g 1/2 cup chunked pineapple
lemon 0.9 oz 26 g 1/4 medium lemon
ginger 0.8 oz 23 g 2 2/3 inches ginger

Directions

  1. Cut the base off of the celery, wash and weigh the produce thoroughly.

  2. Remove the green crown from the pineapple and cut into chunks. If you have a juice press, leave the skin on both the pineapple and the lemon. If you don’t have a juice press, peel the pineapple and the lemon and juice with the rest of the produce.

  3. Place the lemon directly into the press and juice the remaining produce together.

Pro Tips

  • Pineapple is a mushy fruit, so take care not to overfill the press to avoid overflow.

  • Remove the green crown but leave the skin on the pineapple if using a Goodnature juice press. It contains a high concentration of valuable nutrients.

  • When putting the produce down the hopper of the grinder, it is best to use a mix of greens and the softer fruits like pineapple. The greens grind better this way and the end result is more juice. Leave 2 or 3 chunks of apples for the very end, as apples do a good job at cleaning the grinder and pushing any bits of greens or ginger through that didn’t make it through.
