Apple has a lovely way of calming broccoli’s often, er, “well-announced” flavor ... and a bit of ginger gives this juice a refreshing heat. If you’re looking to hide the flavor of the broccoli entirely, simply juice an additional apple, or add a touch of stevia.

A Perfectly Refreshing Green Juice With A Ginger Kick

Makes approximately 16 ounces


  • 2 large sweet apples, cored
  • 3 cups chopped broccoli
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 inch fresh ginger root
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • sweetener, to taste (optional)


Juice the apples, broccoli, celery, and ginger root. Stir in the lemon juice. Add a touch of sweetener like stevia, as desired.


For an extra green boost, add 1/2 teaspoon spirulina powder (or more, to taste) and mix in a shaker cup or blender to incorporate.

This recipe is excerpted from Superfood Juices, available now.
