Homemade Blender Green Juice...easy and tasty!

Blender Juice! I love it! Blender juice has become my best friend the past month due to myself doing a whole body detox, colonics, and herbal treatments for parasites. I may share why I'm doing that someday, but not now :-)

A while back, before I began detoxing, I was given a stack of old books from the 50's-60's that have to do with home remedies, naturopathic medicine, herbal concoctions, and such. I love reading books like these because the medical approach to everything back then took a more natural holistic approach and over the counter things were absolute last resorts. Interesting how that has changed :-) Anyways, one of the books I was reading was strictly on using blender juices to heal every ailment under the sun. 

I personally feel that juices are very necessary for cleansing, but really, one can only do this safely when fresh organic pesticide free produce is in season. Meaning, that detoxing the body effectively can only take place during the spring and summer months while vegetables that are key for cleansing are in production. Hence, what I am about to share is my own personal experience and is not to be taken for medical advice :-)

Back to the juicing....I have a Champion Juicer that I use when I need to really get the juices out (like when I'm using carrots) , but it is messy and a lot of work. So I began making juices in my blender according to the instructions in my book! You can use SO many different things, but here are some of my favorite blends.

BTW...the only thing you need is a blender, a fine mesh sieve, vegetables, fruit, and your hands :-)

Green Juice:
Handful of green curly kale or lacinto kale
1 peeled cucumber
Juice of 1 lemon or orange
Raw local honey to taste (I usually put in a TB or two)
46 oz. of clean, purified, distilled...water

Put everything in the blender and liquefy. Pour through the fine mesh strainer into a stainless bowl. Use a spoon to swirl the mixture around until all you are left with is the pulp. Pour into a pitcher and either drink right away or keep in the fridge for only up to 2 hours. After that you have no nutrients left :-)

Beet and Cucumber Juice:
2 medium sized beets, peeled
2 cucumbers, peeled
Juice of 1 large orange
Honey to taste
46 oz. of water

Celery and Lemon Juice:
 Wash 4 stalks of celery thoroughly
 Juice of two lemons
 Honey to taste (you would probably like to use 2 TB on this one:-)
 30 oz. of water

There are so many variations to this, so get creative and come up with some juices that really appeal to you and your family! My family loves these juices and I also put yogurt in sometimes too for extra probiotics. My two year old son calls the juices "my duice!" and if he likes them, then you will too :-) 



  1. That's a nice green juicing recipes. I will try it definitely. Thanks for share useful information.
