Basil Apple Cucumber Juice

My brother and I made this juice last week.

basil apple cucumber juice with lime

It’s a great juice if you are on a cleanse!  Your taste buds will be awakened and your tummy will be satisfied.  The basil in the juice adds a nice depth to the sweetness of the apple and cucumber.  It makes it more of a grown-up drink in my opinion.

I have to warn you though, we put A LOT of lime in.  A WHOLE lime was too much for me.

be careful not to use too much!

The cucumbers were deee-lish.  I need to make more juice with cucumber!

cucumbers!

Both the apple & cucumber provide a TON of juice.  I love that.  It’s so gratifying.

shhh!  juicing in progress

Another froth shot…cuz I love those!

Dump some ice in there, put the lid on the jar and now you can drink your juice on the go!

Basil, Apple Cucumber and Lime Juice


  • 1 huge handful basil
  • 2 apples (I used a lady apple & a green one)
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 lime

I suggest juicing the basil leaves WITH some apple and cucumber in increments.  You will be able to get more out of the leaves if you don’t put them in all at once. If you want your juice super tangy, juice the lime in the juicer.  If you want a little splash of it, squeeze some directly into your glass.  It’s all up to you!  Take a sip and imagine yourself in flip flops watching your neighbor kids run through the sprinklers.  It’s kinda fun.

    I loved your blog’s old layout! It was just warm and inviting. Change is inevitable, I’m a creature of habit!!!

      cam- you caught us during some testing! the new layout will look pretty much the same, but with a lot more features. There’s just a lot of tweaking that needs to be done. It will be worth the wait! for now it’s how it always is :)

    This sounds so refreshing. I made a cucumber lemonade over the summer that I really loved too. I agree with everyone else… You make me wish for a juicer!

      Michelle- Hopefully I’ll give you enough recipes that would make a juicer worth your while! Stay tuned. And oh my god cucumber lemonade sounds soo summery and lovely right now!

    This is great. I’m just making now an apple pear juice and I was looking what else can go inside. I will add cucumbers, but sadly I can’t add anything acidic (lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange, etc) since I have GERD. Can’t even make tomato juice, which I so much like…
