kris carr’s morning green juice recipe

I get asked a lot if I juice or blend for my green smoothies and the answer right now is blend – mostly because I find it quick and easy and clean up is a cinch with a magic bullet. I’m learning though that by juicing you’re allowing the nutrients to make it to your blood stream and cells a lot quicker since your body doesn’t have to go through the process of digesting all that fiber from the fruits and vegetables you just blended.

For the green smoothie challenge that I’ve been taking part in (which I LOVE! My skin has never been better!) I’ve of course been on the prowl for new green smoothie/juice recipes. I came across the wellness warrior Kris Carr’s morning green juice recipe that I’m going to be using and thought I’d share!

ingredients

– 2 large cucumbers (peeled if not organic)

– big fistful of kale (or substitute spinach)

– big fistful of sweet pea sprouts

– 4-5 stalks of celery

– 1-2 big broccoli stems

– 1 pear or 1 apple

– 1 inch of ginger or less

The beauty of green juice recipes is that you can make them with whatever you have on hand. If kale is too strong for your liking? Use spinach. No sweet pea sprouts? Skip them.

And here’s a green smoothie tip you won’t want to miss.

  1. Very close to the green juice I drink except mine has spinach instead of pea shoots and a peeled lemon. I only started this week so excited to hear that you notice a difference in your skin. I’m just doing it for overall wellness but improved skin would be amazing… Thanks :-)

    1. Mmmm I like lemon in mine too. My skin improving has definitely been a combination of incorporating green juice and smoothies into my diet as well as lots more water…overall my body feels great!

  2. The doctor is saying my son is gaining weight to fast. He is 5’2 120lbs. He is very picky. Only likes grapes and watermelon. He will drink a strawberry banana smoothie from a smoothie place. Im looking for a healthy smoothie to make him for breakfast. He likes broccoli and green beans for veggies. He also loves salad. HELP
