How to Make Green Juice (Without a Juicer!)

How to Make Green Juice Without a Juicer

Raw vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds make up the bulk of my diet. For lunch or dinner I typically eat a lot of large (and not bland) salads.

However, for breakfast and in between meals I take advantage of the health benefits of green juice to keep my energy up.

For as much as I make juice, it surprises people that I don’t actually own a juicer. I just own a regular blender.

So today I’m going to show you how to make green juice without a juicer!

This particular recipe is nutrient-rich, simple, and will beat the pants off any green drink powder or grocery store green juice option.

Also, you can make extra and freeze it in 8-ounce containers to save you time in the future. Just take out one container and place it in the fridge to thaw the night before you want to drink it.

If you were to introduce only one organic green juice into your existing diet, this is the one I would recommend.

Green ArrowIngredients

    6 ounces of apple juice (organic & unfiltered)
    2 organic green tea bags
    2 cups of spinach
    2 cups of kale (chopped)


Green ArrowDirections

 1  First add the apple juice to your blender. Raw kale has a very bitter taste transient but we can reduce this greatly with the sweetness of apple juice.

 2  Now take your tea bags and cut them open. Empty the loose tea into the blender.
Add two cups of spinach.

 3  Chop the kale into roughly 1½ inch squares and measure two cups. Add this final ingredient into the blender.

 4  Blend thoroughly. This usually takes about two minutes or so depending on how powerful your machine is.

 5  Place the mixture in the fridge for an hour or two to allow the contents to soften and marinate together. This is especially important for the green tea.

 6  Remove from the fridge and press the contents through a wire mesh strainer. I usually use a mixing bowl to catch the juice. Make sure to press the pulp until it is nearly dry.

 7  If you already eat a very high-fiber diet, discard the pulp. For those of you who could use the extra fiber, reintroduce a tablespoon or two of pulp back into the juice.

 8  Stir and serve!


Work this simple, healthy green juice recipe into your daily routine and your body will thank you!

    • I like having this in the morning with breakfast. Starting with a healthy option upon rising can sometimes set the tone for the entire day. And yes, apple juices can sweeten up even the most bitter greens. Thank you so much for the thumbs up! 🙂

    • Fruits and vegetables contain both insoluble and soluble fiber. When you strain the liquid from a blender or use a juicer, the insoluble fiber is what gets removed. Fortunately, through this process the soluble fiber remains with the rest of the juice. Soluble fiber is a prebiotic which supports good bacterial growth and digestive health. In addition it also helps regulate blood sugar levels. Insoluble fiber however is not without benefit as it helps keep the bowels regular. Unfortunately though, not everyone can handle the fiber that these greens yield without stomach upset and/or gas. This is why I suggest removing the insoluble fiber and introducing only a portion of it to see how your body reacts. Thank you for the comment, Lisa. 🙂

    • Our pleasure! 🙂

      Thank you, its always nice to hear positive feedback. Eva and I have been working everyday to make this site a better resource for health-conscious people like us. We appreciate your feedback!

    • Thank you! We will be incorporating more multimedia in our upcoming articles. I am not a pro with the video stuff just yet but I’m figuring it out. Thanks for the feedback! Stay healthy, my friend.

  1. Very good video considering your first time. I love green juice I was drinking it so much at one point until I thought I was turning into The Incredible Hulk…lol I don’t drink that many as of now. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you!

      Lol, that’s awesome! I bounce a lot between green juices and smoothies. It depends on what I have a taste for and what else I plan on eating during the day. Stay healthy and thanks for the feedback. 🙂

  2. One of my all time favorite drink is an avocados-rocket leaves-honey mix! It is smooth, sweet, fresh and satisfying! You don’t need a juicer as well, a simple blender will do! For one avocado you need 1 & 1/2 cups of water, a bunch of rocket leaves (not too much though, they have a very strong taste) and honey to taste and that’s it! Try it out and let me know what you think!

    • That sounds amazing!! It’s something Eva and I will have to try soon.

      I’m glad you shared this with the community. Thank you. 🙂

  3. We love to make green smoothies with frozen spinach and frozen kale. As for any reason I can not drink apple juice, so I add frozen banana and frozen pine apple, mango or berries together with at least half to full liter of water. For the taste and special health cick I add cinnamon, turmeric and kardamom. I blend everything in our Thermomix for 1:30min and have the best smoothie ever!

    • Spinach and kale are my favorites when it comes to greens! The alternative you’re talking about sounds just as good. Thanks for sharing!! It especially helps those people who also can’t drink apple juice or fruit juice in general.
