“I Am Healthy” Green Juice

by jenny sansouci on September 7, 2012

Right now I’m in Los Angeles and I’m staying dangerously close to Cafe Gratitude. I’m talking like a 5 minute walk. I say dangerously because I have been going there very single day, which feels excessive. Ah, well, it’s not the worst place to spend my money…and I’m eating a ton of greens. So I justify it. One of the things I keep going back for day after day is their “I Am Healthy” green juice. It tastes awesome and make me feel even more awesome. I get it at any hour of the day.

It’s so simple, yet so incredibly alkalizing and health-inducing for your body and soul.

What’s in it?

Kale, celery, cucumber and lemon juice. That’s it! I usually add ginger for a kick.

Here’s the exact recipe straight from the Gratitude folks:

  • 8 ounces cucumber juice
  • 5 ounces celery juice
  • 3 ounces kale juice
  • splash of lemon juice

If measuring things in ounces when you’re using your juicer feels confusing, just play around with the amounts until you get something that tastes great to you.

And don’t forget to be true to Cafe Gratitude form…when you serve your juice to yourself, say out loud “you are healthy.”

Hi Jenny!

Love your site–I’m a new reader.

I’ll definitely be giving this recipe a try, it sounds delicious and easy. My go-to green juice is similar, just kale (right now, from my yard!), cukes, apple, and sometimes lemon.

I hope you’re having an incredible time in LA. Happy juicing.

Thanks Maeg! I’m envious that you grow kale in your yard! Mmmm…

Two of my favorite things, green juice and cafe gratitude. If I live in So Cal, I would visit that place a few times a week. Rumor says they’re opening an NYC location.

If that rumor is true, my heart will soar to the high heavens.

For the wanna-be do it yourselfers…Do you know how many/much of each vegetable it takes to make that many oz.? Thanks!

I don’t know, but experiment and see what happens 🙂

I’m sure that it depends on your juicer in part. I am planning on upgrading soon.

I get so confused as to which recipes will work for my blender. I live in Brazil and all we use down here are blender blenders. Do you need an extractor or will a good high speed powerful blender suffice? Nevertheless, looking forward to trying this recipe. Cukes are my fav.
oh yes, and you are awesome!! x
