A hydrating Green Detox Juice full of vitamins and antioxidants, made in 5 easy minutes.
Whether its a green smoothie or green juice, I always like to start my day off with some fresh organic greens to wake up and cleanse my body. I feel eating some kind of green food in the morning just starts your day on the right track and makes you feel even more amazing all day long.
If you’re new to juicing then this super easy 5 minutes green detox juice is just the thing you need to get you started. Juice is made by removing the fibre aka pulp from the fruit or veggie itself so you’re left with a nutrient rich elixir or juice haha. For this 5 minute green detox juice I’ve extracted the juice by using a blender and then straining it using either a nut milk bag (this is the one I use) or cheesecloth.
You can use a combination of any fruits and veggies to make juice but my go to is a mix of greens, cucumber, celery and then I spice it up with ginger and lemon and sweeten it with some pineapple, kiwi or in this case green apple. I added some spirulina powder to this version to give you can extra detox boost. Spirulina is high in plant based protein and helps remove heavy metals from your body. If you’re using spirulina make sure its from Hawaiian as its better quality and doesn’t have a weird fishy smell like some other brands. You can find some good options on amazon here.

- 1 green apple
- 1/2 large cucumber
- 2 ribs celery
- 3 leaves kale
- 1 med head romaine lettuce
- 3 inch ginger root
- 2 lemons peeled
- 1/2 tbsp Hawaiian spirulina powder
- Optional: 1/2 cup filtered water
- Wash, peel and roughly chop all of your ingredients.
- Next, add all ingredients into a high speed blender starting with the more water dense ones like cucumber and celery to get things going easier.
- Optional you can also add in some water to help your blender out.
- In a large bowl underneath, strain your juice pulp mixture into either a nut milk bag or *cheesecloth and squeeze out all the juice until you are left with a semi dry pulp.
- Serve right away on ice or as is and drink up!
- *If you are using cheesecloth make sure to double up some layers of it so it catches all the pulp.
- If you have left overs you can store it in a glass mason jar with the lid for 1-2 days in the fridge or freeze for up to 2 weeks.
