    Green and Vegetable Juicing Recipes

    Green and Vegetable Juicing Recipes
    Vegetable juice recipes and especially green juice recipes are the cornerstone of juices.

    Here are some of the vegetable juicing recipes that we make and love.

    Vegetarian Kitchen  DSC04444
    Simply Carrot Juice

    - 5 Medium carrots

    This one is pretty simple!

    Wash and top the carrots, juice and enjoy.

    Wash your juicer immediately it is not made with stainless steel, otherwise the carrots will stain it.

    If you drink enough carrot juice everday your skin will start to turn slightly orange! This is because carrot juice is very high in beta-carotene, an orange-colored antioxidant that gives carrots their color. If we consume a lot of beta-carotene it will build up in our skin. This is not dangerous however.
    Simply Green Juice
    - 1 cup of spinach
    - 2 cups of kale
    - 2 cups of parsley
    - 1 cucumber
    - 3 celery stalks

    Add a little garlic and/or ginger if you like. Wash thoroughly and juice.

    Apple and Cucumber Zipper

    -2 1/2 apples
    - 1/2 cucumber
    - 1″ of ginger

    Remove apple stems and juice everything together. A favorite of ours!

    Ginger has potent anti-inflammatory properties that can help some people reduce arthritis based joint pain. Evidence points to one of the antioxidants in ginger called gingerol. It helps to combat oxidative damage to joint cells.

    Alkaline Juicer Recipes Heaven

    Green juice recipes and green colored fruits and vegetables:
    One fundamental quality of green juice recipes is chlorophyll, which is the product of plants turning light into energy for insects and animals to eat. Without this, life as we know it, would not exist. Some of the many amazing benefits of chlorophyll include; powerful detoxifying properties including that of the liver, as well as removing unfriendly bacteria, parasites and mold. Chlorophyll can also improve our blood quality due to its molecular make up, similar to hemoglobin. It helps increase red blood cell count and increases the movement of oxygen throughout our blood. It also helps the repair and growth of all tissues in the body.

    Herb and Garlic Almond Cheese [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

    Vegetarian Kitchen  Screen-Shot-2015-05-21-at-3.01.32-PM1

    This is a super tasty vegan almond cheese that you can easily make at home. Just a handful of simple ingredients combine into a delicious plant-based treat! Non-dairy cheese goodness that you will want to eat all on your own.


    1.5 cups plant milk (eg. almond, oat, rice, coconut, soy etc)
    1/2 cup almonds blanched
    1 tbsp lemon juice
    1/2 tsp white pepper
    2 tsp sea salt (Celtic or Himalayan)
    2 large cloves garlic
    1 tbsp mixed herbs
    1 tbsp agar agar powder
    2 tbsp tapioca starch
    1/2 cup hot boiled water


    1 tbs paprika
    1 tbs mixed Italian herbs


    Firstly, you’re going to need a medium sized saucepan, a blender and some cheese molds (I used mini spring form cake tins)

    Add all the ingredients (except the coating mix) into the blender and blend until smooth.

    Pour the mixture into a medium size saucepan and gradually bring to the boil before reducing heat to a simmer.

    After 5-10 minutes the mixture will become thick and creamy (see video for full step by step instructions). Quickly pour the mixture into your cheese moulds

    Place the cheese moulds into the fridge for 30 minutes or until set.

    Remove from moulds and carefully roll in the coating mix to coat the edges – this makes the cheese look great and taste even better!


    Love Always
