How To Make Your Favorite Green Juice At Home Without A Juicer
If you're a green juice fan, you know that the veggie-packed beverage can be a nutrient-rich addition to your morning meal or afternoon snack. You also know that if you grab one at your favorite juice shop regularly it can get a little, well, pricey. But what if you could make one at home that's even more nutritious? And without a juicer?
Good news: You can create a veggie-packed green juice with only two ingredients, and no fancy kitchen equipment.
How to make 2-ingredient green juice.
To make a nutritious and tasty green juice without a juicer, all you need is an organic greens powder and water. Coconut water would also work well in place of plain water or, for a creamier beverage, coconut, almond, or oat milk.
We recommend grabbing a protein shaker to mix your drink most effectively, but any container with a lid will work (Mason jar, water bottle, etc.). You can also throw it in a blender or mixer for a few pulses until combined.
- 8 oz. water (you can also use coconut water, coconut milk, almond milk, or oat milk)
- 1 tsp. greens powder (or up to 1 Tbsp., according to taste).
- Pour cold liquid in a cup with a lid.
- Scoop in 1 teaspoon of greens powder.
- Close the lid and shake the container until well mixed.
What are the benefits of this green juice?
Finally, a greens blend powered by organic sea veggies to fight inflammation*
With only three steps and two ingredients, this beverage is ideal for anyone looking for a quick and simple nutrition boost. When shopping for a greens powder, look for dark leafy greens such as broccoli and spinach, as well as sea vegetables, like in mbg's organic veggies+ powder. Sea veggies are hard to find but rich in magnesium, calcium, iron, and vitamin C.
The organic veggies+ powder also contains vegan digestive enzymes and probiotic bacteria, which help support healthy digestion.* The blend is Whole30 Approved®, and unlike some pre-made juices, it's low in sugar (only 2 g per serving). But don't let the lack of sweetener fool you—this powder actually tastes really delicious.
No matter how you make it, this nutrient-rich, two-ingredient juice is super convenient. If you're craving more greens in your life, this could be a great breakfast or midday snack.
If you're used to grabbing a green juice from your favorite spot on the way to work, replicating your own at home can introduce a sense of normalcy to these very different times. If you're not usually a green juice person but are looking for no-fuss, nutritious drink options, it might be a good time to give greens a try.
