Kale Apple Ginger Juice

you know it!

KALE! I want to eat it, roast it, saute it, shove it into my mouth any which way, and now I want to drink it. Ever since Halloween, I’ve been eating too many sweets—though my recent posts could have told you that.  So yesterday I needed GREEN JUICE to balance out my insane sweet tooth. Here’s what I made!

kale apple ginger

I added an apple to the kale to sweeten it up and threw a knob of ginger in there cuz I wanted it spicy. Result? FAB. I always feel like I could move boulders when I drink kale. It’s an instant boost.

I juiced the kale first and then added the ginger and apple.

time for apple

Doesn’t make a lot of juice, but you don’t really need that much to feel the zing!

less than a cup

Ahhh delicious froth!

Excuse me while I gulp mine down.

Kale Apple Ginger Juice

(makes about 1/2 cup juice)

  • 5 kale leaves
  • 1 Fuji apple
  • 2 inch knob ginger

Juice the kale followed by the ginger then apple! The apple will push out any leftover kale & ginger juice. Add some ice cubes and you’re on your way to deliciousness!

    I feel healthier just looking at it. : )

    I bought me some kale this week and threw it in some black beans like you did a few posts back! Yumm…still have some left over and want to see how it is in a smoothie since I don’t have a juicer. That juice is an awesome shade of green!

      let me know how that goes! I suspect it might be a little gritty…. Did you like it in the black beans??!

      • November 14, 2010

        Maybe if I add some frozen berries, it won’t seem as gritty. The black bean/kale combo was fab! Also threw some sweet potatoes into the mix. :)

    Hey, we went all summer drinking those ginger blackberry lovelies you posted. So, the big question is, what cocktail are you serving with Turkey? I trust you. (I also trust Martha Stewart with drinks – big lush, that one – and so far I’m leaning towards a ginger pear something or other of hers.)

      My dad always provides the wine!!! We drink A LOT OF IT.

      Ginger pear sound SCRUMPTIOUS!! I’d add a little rum to that!

    Did it taste good too? Or was it just healthy? (either way I’m gana try it cuz I am def a health nut and i LOVE kale)

      Yeah of course! i wouldn’t post it if it didn’t ;) Make sure you use apple or else it won’t!

  • November 16, 2010

    This looks incredible! I’ve made this same combo before w/ added cilantro and garlic too, and I believe some carrot. It definitely had kick to it. Oh man! I felt like a total superhero afterward! :) A juicer is high on my wish list!!!

    I’m curious how the blended method turns out… !!

    I wish I could find kale over here!!!, but since I don´t have any I usually prepare a green juice with spinach + regular cabbage + apple and ginger too!. Is the best thing on earth. I love to drink a green juice in the mornings, it gives me so much energy and makes me feel good.

    • November 18, 2010

      YES!! Green juice is the best. How does cabbage taste? I hear you hafta drink it fast.

    i’m so excited – I just ordered a Magic Bullet that comes with a juice extractor(?) – now i’ll be able to make all your fabulous juices! thanks for such a great blog.

    this is one of my favorite juices! i like to add a little lemon. yum!

    • November 20, 2010

      I was thinking lemon would be a good addition! Good call! A granny smith apple would be good for tang in case you didn’t have one.

    Your blog rocks. Lovin’ your green juice recipes.

    what the hell..3 inches of ginger was a horrible idea..it burned the whole way down..and i actually only used 3 inches with 3 times the amount of apples and kale…suggestion…use 1 inch of ginger if you are trying to make 2-3 cups of juice…

    • December 16, 2011

      hmmm. Maybe my juicer doesn’t extract ginger in the same way that yours does! Thanks for the tip!

        ooh good point..that would make a huge difference..its all good though. trial and error ;)

    I just made this, and it’s making me so happy. I’m convinced that ginger is the answer to making all juice delicious.
