Spinach-Apple Green Juice Recipe

Spinach is a nutritional superpower, with high amounts of antioxidents, vitamins, and minerals. It can also help improve eye health, promote healthy hair and skin, reduce blood pressure, and more (click here for a full list of benefits).

For a long time, most people didn’t get too creative with this treasured vegetable. They had it in salads, as a dinner side (creamed or sauteed spinach, for example), and that’s about it.

More recently, spinach has become a popular juicing ingredient. Salads and sauteed spinach are great, but they don’t go down nearly as smoothly as fresh spinach juice.

Plus, a glass of spinach juice can be enjoyed at any time of day, from early morning to late at night. Unless you like eating spinach salads for breakfast — in which case, power to you — juice is probably your only palatable option for any-time-of-day spinach consumption.

Be sure to check the pro tips below the ingredients list for suggestions on produce preparation and recipe variations.

Before we get into the recipe, let’s review the extraordinary health benefits of this leafy superfood (and the other ingredients in the juice you’re about to make).

Hi! Love the recipe. How can I turn this recipe into 16 oz instead please? Thank you!

Hi Carolyn, Divide the required yield (in this case 16 oz) by the old yield (in this case 12 oz) to get your conversion factor (in this case 1.33). Then multiply the weight of each ingredient by 1.33, this will be your new ingredient amount.

Thanks for this epic post. You said avoid peeling the apple for antioxidants. What will be apple seeds? Is it also good? Thank you.

Hi Whitney, You're welcome 😄 Apple seeds tend to give a bitter flavor if they end up in the juice. When using our juicers, there is no need to remove the seeds because they will not end up in the juice. If you are using a slow/masticating juicer, they may end up in your juice and if apple makes up a large part of your particular recipe, you may want to remove them as it will alter the flavor.

Spinach is great because it makes the juice a really nice dark green color!
