How to juice leafy greens

Let’s be honest. Juice that is the color of mud or a green frog may not look very appetizing. So how do you start? The most important thing is,you don’t need to drink leafy green juice by itself. All kinds of leafy greens can be juiced along with apples and carrots, and it even tastes good with pears. The key is to start slowly with a recipe like this:

  • 1 large carrot
  • 2 pears
  • ½ a lemon
  • 1 handful of corn lettuce (Valerianellalocusta)

Once you try it, you’ll see that corn lettuce is almost a flavorless addition to your juice.The next day try two handfuls of it, then a third handful the third day. Just add as much as you can while still enjoying the flavor from the other ingredients.

Using a lemon to balance any bitterness

We recommend corn lettuce (also called lambs lettuce) afor your first try with leafy greens, because of its very mild flavor. You can also try lettuce or spinach, as these both add almost no flavor to a carrot/apple blend. So why the lemon? A little lemon juice can improve the taste 100%, especially with stronger or more bitter leafy greens.You can also add a little fresh ginger to balance out any bitterness, and get the great immunity boost that ginger provides. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different combinations!
