Green Juice Recipes For Weight Loss

Green juices can be hard to perfect, which is why we usually take the more convenient option of buying one from our local juice bar, but with the right ingredients you can create a juice that tastes great and not like grass at all! It is all about getting the right balance between the green vegetables and the fruit for a little bit of sweetness.

You can make these juice recipes in bulk and refrigerate them for the week, which means that you will have a healthy juice to start the day each morning. You will of course need a juicer to make these recipes, but if you are just starting out you don’t need to spend too much to get a quality one. You can check out our recommended juicer here and if you are based in the UK, we recommend this one.

These green juices are great for cleansing your system and flushing out toxins, plus we have included the ideal breakfast juice recipe and the best juice for post workout, which will have you feeling great and well on your way to reaching your weight loss goals.

Healthy Green Breakfast Juice

1 Granny Smith apple, cored
2 carrots
½ cucumber
1 handful spinach
1 handful kale
1 handful grapes
