My go to green juice which packs lots of nutrient rich veggies and natural sweetness helps detoxify and adds a punch of essential minerals, iron and vitamin C. It combines alkalizing spinach with parsley and cilantro, two great heavy metal detoxifiers. Spinach alone is a sweeter/mild nutrient packed green and cucumber adds highly mineralized water to the mix combined with fiber rich pear and apple, vitamin C containing orange all for a little added sweetness.

I enjoy making juice once a week for myself and neighbors as a added/quick way to get vitamins and nutrients into mine and my toddlers body. I don’t use juices as cleansers or meal substitutes, but rather as a healthy snack or along with a meal.

Using a higher vegetable to fruit ratio helps keep the juice lower in sugar and adding higher fiber fruits will also balance out that natural occurring sugar as well.

Detoxifying Green Juice


  • 1 cucumber
  • 3 ribs celery
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 handful parsley
  • 1 handful cilantro
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 pear
  • 1 apple
  • 1 orange


  • Prepare the vegetables by washing and removing any produce stickers.
  • Chop the cucumber, apple, pear, and orange into pieces that will fit in the feed chute of the juicer.
  • Cut lime in half and cut away the peel of 1/2 the lime leaving the white pith and lime flesh…it should be small enough to fit into the juicer without cutting.
  • Turn on the juicer to the appropriate setting and push ingredients through alternating between the greens and cucumber/celery, lime, pear, apple, and orange.
