Kale Cucumber Apple Juice | Simple Recipes

kale cucumber apple juiceThis Kale Cucumber Apple Juice recipe is very delicious. The cucumber cuts the strong flavor of the kale and the apple sweetens it just a little.

I was pleasantly surprised when I made this recipe this morning.

Kale is a superfood. I can’t say enough about it. I never liked kale before I started juicing so this is a big plus for me.

Cucumber is a good source of B vitamins and rehydrates the body. I hear cucumber is good for hangovers. If that’s the case this should be an excellent hangover cure.

Kale Cucumber Apple Juice – My Simple Recipes

Makes 20 ounces

  • 3 kale leaves
  • 1 large cucumber (I peel mine, unless organic)
  • 1 apple (red delicious)

Selecting Kale for Juicing

  • To enjoy the health benefits of kale you should look for kale with firm, deeply colored leaves and moist and firm stems.
  • When you shop for kale it should be displayed in a refrigerated environment because warm temperatures will cause it to wilt. This will negatively affect its flavor.
  • Never pick leaves that look wilted for your juicing recipes. The kale leaves should not show any signs of browning nor have small holes.
  • The kale with smaller-sized leaves usually is more tender and have slightly better flavor than those with larger leaves.
  • To store, place kale in a plastic storage bag removing as much of the air from the bag as possible.
  • You can store it in the refrigerator for for up to 5 days.
  • When you are juicing kale leaves you should however note that the longer the leaves are stored, the more bitter it will taste when you juice it.
  • Always shop for kale that has been grown organically.
  • Rinse kale leaves under cold running water. – Juicing Benefits Toolbox

    Hi Rich,
    How are You? I already have tried this recipe. Very delicious and Its May helpful to lose your weight rapidly. Definitely, A great weight loss ingredient.

    My Tips:

    Consider you juice to be a whole meal. Once you know exactly how much food goes into a single glass of juice, it will be easy to see that you can drink it in place of a meal.

    After juicing, it is always a good idea to rinse the juicer as soon as possible. Also, some colorful fruits and vegetables can build up dark stains on the juicer components.

    Just what type of a cardio exercise would make certain optimal outcomes with weight loss? It depends on your body type- You see a great deal of cardio physical exercises are reliable but this genuinely depends upon the kind of body kind you have and the amount of weight you are prepared to shed. It depends after just how fast you want results- Some cardio workouts are high intensity which would bring you faster results as reviewed to various other cardio physical exercises.

    Thanks for this really simple cucumber juice recipe, Although there are many recipes available over the internet for cucumber recipe but yours have really hit the points with simplicity.

  33. Looking for a quick and easy way to lose weight? You’re not alone. An estimated 50 million Americans will go on diets this year. And while some will succeed in taking the weight off, very few–perhaps 5 percent–will manage to keep all of it off in the long run.
    One reason for the low success rate is that many people look for quick and easy solutions to their weight problems. They find it hard to believe in this age of scientific innovations and medical miracles that an effortless weight-loss method doesn’t exist.
    So they succumb to quick-fix claims like “Eat All You Want and Still Lose Weight!” or “Melt Fat Away While You Sleep!”

    Hey Rich

    A great nutrition tip is investing in a good juicer. Juicing is an amazing way to get a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables all in one drink. The best part about using a juicer is that you can experiment and make juice out of whatever you want.

    This is a great recipe and the apple sweetens it up nicely.
    Thanks
