Coconut Green Juice

by jenny sansouci on March 2, 2012

So I want to share a little miracle that’s been occurring in my kitchen lately.

It may not seem so miraculous at first glance, but to me it seems completely revolutionary.

Here goes. Ever since I got my juicer for Christmas, I’ve been making epic amounts of green juice. It’s been thrilling, really, but I’ve realized that it takes a LOT of produce to make juice. Sometimes I just want an incredible amount of green juice and I don’t feel like juicing through pounds of produce.

Green juice is one of my favorite beverages, hands down, but another one of my faves is coconut water. In fact, I can often be spotted drinking both, at the same time, from separate glasses.

(See where this is going?)

Yep. So my epic miracle was – one day I decided to pour coconut water into my green juice. I realized that if I do this, it’s so much more efficient, and I can make so much extra juice – not just any juice – super-hydrating coconut green juice.

Double the pleasure, double the fun!

My usual recipe – makes a LOT of juice. I don’t know how much exactly, but a big amount, enough for a whole day of juice. Feel free to cut the recipe in half.

  • 2 bunches of kale
  • 2 bunches of celery
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 2 green apples
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 limes
  • 3 cucumbers
  • 1 inch piece of ginger

THEN – the final ingredient – coconut water! Pour as much in as you want.  I tend to pour half a glass of green juice and top if off with half a glass of coconut water.

Hydration + leafy green energy = you’re a superhero.
