Hello, hello!

I get a lot of inquiries about my daily green juice, so I decided to write a post with my favorite recipe as well as answer some of the frequently asked questions I receive about juicing.


First things first! The recipe below is for the green juice I make almost every morning. It’s super easy, doesn’t require a ton of crazy ingredients (just 5!), and tastes so incredibly fresh and delicious. I love it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most common questions I receive about juicing and my replies. Please let me know if you have any additional ones!

What kind of juicer do you have?

I have a BELLA NutriPro Juicer, and I love, love, love it! I rave about it to pretty much anyone who will listen. Here’s my review!

Do you ever make juice in a blender?

I’ve tried, but it doesn’t turn out well. I’ve even tried a Vitamix, and it was still super chunky.

How much has your weekly grocery bill increased now that you are juicing?

It’s increased about $20-25 per week, but I buy enough fresh produce to make juice for both Mal and me, usually 4-5 days per week, so 8-10 juices, which is definitely cheaper than buying fresh juice!

What do you do with the pulp?

I just throw it away, but I know some people use it in baked goods, smoothies, and composting.

Do you ever replace your meals with juice?

No, I always drink juice in addition to a meal or as a snack. For me, it’s all about the nutrients! However, I did a 3-day juice cleanse back in April when I only drank juice. It was an interesting few days, and I really loved the juices, but it didn’t do anything for me, health-wise.

What do you buy organic verses non-organic for juicing?

I buy a mix of organic and conventional produce for my juice. I basically just keep an eye out for sales, especially on the Dirty Dozen, and buy accordingly. For example, if organic apples and celery are on sale, I’ll splurge there and save on conventional carrots. The following week, organic cucumbers might be on sale, so I’ll pick those up and save on conventional bagged spinach. I just try to balance it the best I can.

How long does the juice keep in the refrigerator?

Freshly pressed juices should be consumed right away so you can get all of the health benefits of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients, and all that good stuff, so I drink my juice within 10-20 minutes of making it.

Questions of the Day

How often do you drink fresh juice?

What’s your favorite juice combo?



  1. I’ve been blending up juice for me & my husband for a few months now after a staying with friend who made some for us with her VitaMix. I was ready to invest and then saw a comparison with the NutriBullet. It works great! I use frozen fruit, kale, carrots, cucumber & watermelon. It comes out smooth and is so refreshing : ) Just found your blog while looking for 10K race tips, so much awesomeness here!

  2. Pingback: My Eats Lately
  3. Maybe the Silk Iced latte is delicious but if anybody care about good health carageenan is the ingredient that should AVOIDED.

  4. Can I put some water to make the green juice more liquid? Is it ok to make green juice for a week?

  5. I was a bit skeptical but went ahead and made this “green juice” ..It was really good…I will be making this more often.

  6. Very informative post! I use the remaining pulp for smoothies, or I just store it in the fridge and eat it while I watch a bit of TV before going to bed.

  7. Great post! A lot of juice beginners make a mistake when trying to keep it in refrigerator instead of drinking, so if you want to take of benefits you need to drink fresh juice in 10 minutes after juicing.
