KALE, MINT AND APPLE GREEN JUICE

I am not one to make New Year’s resolutions but since I am preparing for my wedding this summer, I have decided to make changes to my diet. One of them is to start each day with a green juice or smoothie. Green juices have plenty of vitamins and nutrients which assist with improved overall health, improved energy and healthy glowing skin. I call it the beauty juice.

There are so many recipe variations for green juice and every now and then I create a recipe that needs an extra boost of sweetness. Since I do not want to fill my juice with lots of sugar, I use Truvia Natural Sweetener which is a naturally sweet, zero-calorie, Stevia based sweetener. I like to use it for veggie green juices which need some sweetness and also like to add it when using green apples as my fruit component. I love that is it naturally derived and is certainly a great way to add sweetness with zero calories.

Truvia Natural Sweetener is very versatile and can be used in various recipes and drinks. Pretty much it can be used instead of sugar in most recipes. You can use it in baked goods, oatmeal, coffee and even in salad dressings. I have used it in glazed carrots, coleslaw salad and it was delicious.

I got my Truvia Natural Sweetener at my neighborhood Shaw’s market, however you can purchase yours at your local grocery store. I chose the box which contains 40 packets of sweetener as I like the convenience of using packets. One packet has a sweetness equivalence of 2 teaspoons of sugar with zero calories which is pretty awesome.

                    

Kale, Mint and Apple Green juice Recipe

The ingredients for this recipe are very simple and easy to obtain. Fresh organic kale, mint, apples, a squeeze of fresh lime juice and a packet of Truvia Natural Sweetener is all you need. You can substitute kale with spinach if you prefer.

When it comes to creating a juice its important to consider the veggie fruit content. There should be more veggies than fruit, at least 3/4 should be veggies. This kale, mint and apple green juice is light, refreshing and very green. You feel a boost in your energy not long after drinking it. It is best served immediately before the natural enzymes in the produce start breaking down but you can place it in a well sealed glass container and drink it a couple of hours later. I made a huge amount in the morning, drank some of it at home and packed some in glass bottles to take to work.

  1. This drink is such a beautiful, healthy, green color. I think I’d want to add some banana to give this a little more of a creamy texture, but I’ll have to try it this way first. #client

    • Banana will certainly be a great addition for a creamier taste. I also like to add avocado to it when I need a creamy element.

  2. YUM! I need to try this. I always put kale or spinach in all my smoothies. But I’ve never thought to put it in my juice. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Yum this green smoothie looks like the perfect breakfast to start a healthy day! Thank you for sharing the recipe with us. I will be giving it a go 🙂

  4. I am going to book mark this recipe as it sounds amazing – I bought something similar in a store and loved it and then they sold out, the next one with ingredients like you used here was awful – I should just make it so I will be trying it for sure – with the stevia! Thank you for sharing!

  5. I’ve had truvia and it’s perfect! Not too sweet but sweet enough to add the perfect flavor. What a great habit to get into – drinking this daily for your big day. The best part is you’ll probably be so used to it, that you’ll continue even after your wedding! It looks delicious too. i love anything with apples in it.

  6. I’m a big green smoothie fan as it’s hard for me to eat green veggies. This recipe looks so good. I’ll definitely try it.

  7. This Kale Mint and Apple Juice look so refreshing and healthy drink. I will try to make this for our bunch.
