 Green juice has become a popular option for those trying to stay in shape. This type of juice consists of leafy greens, vegetables and fruits processed through a juicer. Some people may be intimidated by the green color of the juice, but remember that you can choose the items you include in your juice. If you’re considering trying green juice, we here at Great Harvest in Wichita have some benefits you can gain from it and a recipe to get you started.

Health benefits

The fresh and healthy ingredients used can provide your body with loads of necessary nutrients, vitamins and minerals all in one cup. Green juice can help increase your energy and is a great way to detox. Drinking this mixture of leafy greens, vegetables and fruit is very healthy way of consuming your recommended daily amounts of each. It is known to be healthier than smoothies as well. If you’re just starting out, you can stick to leafy greens that are milder in taste and use more fruit than vegetables. Experiment with different flavors and proportions until you find what you like.

Give it a try

You will need:
  • 5 leaves of kale
  • ½ cup of spinach
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 small apple of your choice
  • 1 cup of grapes
If the kale or spinach are too strong, remember that you can substitute them for other leafy greens that are milder in taste. Throw everything into your juicer and enjoy.

How to store

If you can’t drink your juice right away, make sure you put it in a an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator. If you want to make a large batch or want to have it waiting for you in the morning, it can be stored for a short period. Most juices will stay good anywhere from 24 to 72 hours. However, the best recommendation is to drink it right away.
