Instant Green Juice (Low-Glycemic)

This is a tasty quick juice you can throw together in just a few minutes!  Around the winter holiday season I always try to make an effort to add more green juices and superfoods to my life in order to offset the party indulgences and ward off colds and viruses.

What I especially love about this recipe is that it is low-glycemic.  Sometimes juices are too sugary and make me feel wonky!  Plus my taste buds just don’t get the same satisfaction they used to from highly sweetened foods and beverages.  It’s an awesome by-product of living a whole foods lifestyle!

    Usually green drinks scare me but this looks pretty enough to try. I know my son and daughter in law would like me to make this when they visit. What kind of blender do you use?

      Hi, we use a Vitamix. This recipe isn’t overwhelmingly green tasting. I think your son and daughter-in-law are really going to appreciate you going the extra mile for them! Bravo!

    I just started getting into green drinks. Is this easy and taste worthy for a newbie? I just don’t want to waste ingredients. Thanks.

      Hi Jane, I think this is a great intro to juicing for newbies because it is fast and not too green tasting. The grapefruit and lemon really balance out the green flavor. Let us know how it goes!

    What could I substitute for the grapefruit because I am not a big fan but this juice does look darn good.

    1. Jen

      Hi, you could substitute an additional lemon OR an orange. Pretty much any citrus fruit will work!

    Well, I thought I might not like this one. Green usually isn’t my favorite flavor.(spinach). So I put half of amount of spinach in recipe. Just right. Anyone can add or put more of any ingredient. Make it your.

      Great way to adjust the recipe for your own pathway instead of just not trying it at all! Kudos!
