Super Green Drink | Cucumber, Spinach and Sprouts

This Super Green Drink is so-so, but very good for the body. Have you ever made a recipe that you knew was extremely good for you, but the taste was less than desirable? This is one of those for me, but to be fair to the author I wasn’t able to use the exact ingredients.

This recipe comes from Juicing, Fasting, and Detoxing for Life: Unleash the Healing Power of Fresh Juices and Cleansing DietsI didn’t have sunflower, clover or buckwheat sprouts. I used my freshly grown alfalfa sprouts in place of those. Maybe that was the difference. Maybe the alfalfa was too strong for this recipe.

The Super Green Drink is so nutritious I’ll probably make it again, but next time I’ll add an apple to make it palatable. I think maybe 1/2 lemon added would be good too.

So why am I writing about a recipe I don’t like? Because this is a recipe that some of you may enjoy. It’s very nutritious and definitely worth a try. It’s simple too!

I made another “Super Green Drink” that I couldn’t even tolerate. This one at least deserves a write-up.

As I mentioned, in place of the sprouts listed below, I used alfalfa sprouts because that’s all I had available.

I usually double small recipes in order to get at least 20 ounces which is enough for two people. But, maybe this is one of those recipes that we only need about 5 ounces in a serving. So 10 ounces could be enough for two 🙂 You decide.

Makes 10 ounces

  • 1 large cucumber, peeled
  • 1 large handful of spinach
  • 1 large handful of sunflower sprouts ( I used alfalfa)
  • 1 small handful of buckwheat sprouts (did not add)
  • 1 small handful of clover sprouts (did not add)


If you’re used to sweetened juice recipes, set your expectations accordingly.

Thanks again for reading and happy juicing!

    I have not been brave enough to make a green juice that isn’t sweetened. I also add a banana or some dates but you’ve inspired me to try it!

    I really like spinach since my childhood. Maybe it’s because of the influence of my mother and popeye the sailorman. Honestly, I never thought to make spinach as a beverage. It was quite strange for me.
