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.

  • reduces inflammation
  • improves digestion
  • cancer preventative
  • antioxidant
  • cardiovascular support

Ingredients

  • green apple
    8 oz
    1 1/4 medium apple
  • kale (green variety)
    4 oz
    2 cups chopped kale
  • celery
    4 oz
    2 1/2 medium stalks
  • pineapple
    3 oz
    1/2 cup chunks
  • lemon
    0.9 oz
    1/4 medium lemon
  • ginger
    0.8 oz
    10 slices

Directions

  1. Cut the base off of the celery and cut the pineapple into chunks. If using a Goodnature juice press, leave the skin on the pineapple. Peel the lemon if you prefer a lighter flavor.

  2. Wash the produce thoroughly.

  3. Juice all ingredients together.

Pro Tips

  • 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.
