Kale Apple Carrot Grape Juice


Not too long ago, I shared this juice with Cooper with the hopes that it would be a good way to get greens into his body. I had no idea that it would make him SO DANG HYPER.  I think he got a natural high from the greens of the kale (HELLO CHLOROPHYLL!!), and I’m sure the sweetness of the other ingredients helped… We’re talking non-stop movement for HOURS. I mean like…way more than he normally moves (which is a lot).

Perhaps that’s why I’m obsessed with green juice. It makes me feel so dang good & energetic.

And we’re off! Simple ingredients!

Creates two cups of the most delicious green juice! This was my last juice in my old juicer. 

Now that I use an Omega 8006, I’m pretty sure I would have gotten waaay more juice out of this haul.

This juice is the ultimate pick-me-up. I bet you’d be super productive if you started your day with a glass.

Don’t give it to your kid before nap time. Trust.

      I’ve actually thought about this combo. I love carrot/apple, so grape sounded like a good addition. Kale for extra nutrients! :)

    • January 22, 2013

      Oooh, I’ve never juiced grapes before (duh, so good) so I will definitely be trying this.

      Wow! I adore you for getting your kid to drink GREEN juice! ;) Such a healthy treat.

      Slapping my head–grapes! Like of course! What a genius addition. But I must admit, I’m a little nervous about drinking kale. But I could go for more energy. So color me SOLD!

      I’ve been researching juicers like crazy to try to figure out which one to buy…as soon as I make up my freaking mind, I’m making this juice. It looks awesome and I could totally do with some extra energy, especially at this time of year.

        I just got a masticating manual juicer for 25 bucks on amazon… it’s a great starter juicer… I love it!! When researching juicers look into the 2 different kinds… masticating and centrifugal..

      So it his morning was my first juice try, after reading the link you posted on Friday, joys post, and the one today. I borrowed a juicer which looks ancient, thought I’d try one before buying. I just used what I already had in my fridge( grapefruit, orange, carrots, amd ginger). It was good, a little too strong on te ginger. The one downside is the Juicer is it is a mess to clean. Do any of you have this problem, if not what kind of juicer do you have? What about your favorite juicing blogs, websites, or books? One last thing has anyone tried making their own fermented veggie kvass juice?

        Most juicers are a pain to clean. I just make sure that I have a bowl of soapy water waiting for me after I am done juicing. I just throw all the parts in and they’re clean in minutes. I have a bunch of juices on my blog. Have a look! And what’s this fermented juice you are talking about? Tell me more.

    • January 22, 2013

      I love this juice idea! We have been juicing for maybe 6 months or so and never thought to juice grapes. Seems like an obvious choice! I hope you share your thoughts on your new juicer, we may need an upgrade some day..

      I know exactly what you mean about energy. I’ve been juicing like crazy for the last 3 weeks and its better than any energy drink in a can! I use kale, beets, carrots, apples, pears. Yummy!!

      I love the energy I have from juice. I made the mistake one morning of drinking coffee 30 minutes after and that right there was too ENERGY! YAY for Cooper!

    • January 22, 2013

      2013 is off to such a righteous start. I’m going to make this after Zumba tomorrow! Thanks for the recipe!

    • January 22, 2013

      Who wouldn’t feel energized after a supa-juice? It’s like when popeye eats spinach.

    • January 22, 2013

      I hope this supercharges me up in the morning! I was wondering if you could make this without a juicer? If I just chop everything up and blend it or puree it in the food processor then strain it???

    • January 22, 2013

      I made this today and absolutely loved it! The grapes made it so sweet and the kale gave the perfect little kick. Will be making this again. Thanks Tracy!

    • January 22, 2013

      I need more energy, great looking juice!

    • January 22, 2013

      haha… I’m guessing the sugars in the apple and grapes contributed to Cooper’s bouncing off the walls! But I love juices that are naturally sweet without needing any aid.

        January 22, 2013

        Yes. They helped!

    • January 22, 2013

      I can handle green smoothies but I’ve yet to try straight green juice. I’m thinking I should just go for it:) And worst case scenario, at least that green color is totally gorgeous!

        They’re delicious and if you add fruit, they don’t taste super green!

    • January 23, 2013

      You and joy have me juice craving at all hours of the day!

    • January 24, 2013

      YUM! Love new ideas for getting the green into our tiny one. Thanks Tracy!

    • January 25, 2013

      I’d probably make juice way more often if I wasn’t so stinkin’ lazy and HATED cleaning the juicer. Can’t they make a juicer that is self-cleaning? I would buy that…but for reals.

    • January 25, 2013

      Thanks for the new juice combo! My go to lately has been pineapple, mint, spinach and celery, it’s to die for! Never thought to include grapes, next week I’ll have to make a big batch of this to try out!

      Oh I do love a good juice! I just wrote this recipe down for tomorrow! My favs lately are beet, apple, lemon – and green grapes and ginger. Oh thanks for the inspiration!

    • February 5, 2013

      Fantastic! It makes me actually enjoy kale!

    • March 30, 2014

      Looks lovely. You’d need a masticating juicer to get the most out of this with the kale – and the grapes are a great addition to counteract the bitterness of the kale.
