Recipes – Our Morning Juice

I suspect this could be made with a lot less fruit.  Given I’m trying to get some degree of veggies in my picky 7 year old eater, this is where we are:

  • 2 apples, usually Organic Granny Smith
  • 1 red pear
  • 5 large collard green leaves and/or 5 kale leaves
  • 5-6 large carrots
  • sometimes 1 add in (cranberries, a little leftover broccoli, etc…)

Directions:  This depends on the type of juicer you have.  You may have to cut your fruit up.  For mine, I was it all, dump it in the juice, and drink.  Makes about three 7 ounce glasses.

I love collard greens in our juice.  They hardly have any flavor, and seem to juice better than spinach or some other greens I’ve tried.  Plus, they’re packed with good stuff, but can be a problem for folks on blood thinners.  Beware!  Kale and Collard Greens

  1. So, I’ve been listening to and reading some things from Robb Wolf, indicating, perhaps, that I shouldn’t be drinking my juice. Liquified foods supposedly dump too many carbs in your system at once. Not good. Juicing takes out fiber. Not good for most, good for our family. My husband has some intestinal scar tissue such that too much fiber is a huge problem for him. Getting enough veggies in him can be problematic. I guess the bottom line is, you sometimes have to adapt to the cards you’re dealt. Despite the recommendation, I think this still makes sense for us. We’re still juicin’!
