My First Green Juice!

Green Juice - Apple Cucumber Spinach Lime Ginger

Thank you, Tribest for the Green Star Elite Jumbo Twin Gear Juicer. It is a fabulous beast!

Juicing has been on my to do list for a long time and now I finally have the right equipment. My niece is an experienced juicer, so I asked her for advice on what to try my first time. My one qualification was that I didn’t want it to taste “too green.” The following is a variation of her suggestion and it was delicious.

My First Green Juice


1 Large Apple (or 2 small)
1 Cucumber
1/3 Bunch Spinach
1/2 Lime
Fresh Ginger (equivalent to 1 teaspoon)

Prepare and wash all ingredients prior to starting up the juicer.
Cut the apple into wedges, remove seeds.
Slice the cucumber into spears – don’t peel.
Cut lime into wedges – no need to peel or remove seeds.
Remove skin from ginger.

Run all ingredients through the juicer. Garnish with a slice of lime and serve.

Tip: I used the coarse screen for more texture in my juice. You may prefer the fine screen.

This juice has a nice kick from the lime and ginger. It doesn’t taste “too green.” In fact, I didn’t even taste any of the spinach even though I got the good nutrition from it.

The Green Star Elite Jumbo Twin Gear Juice Extractor made the whole process easy. The first time took awhile, since I was reading the instruction manual and figuring out how to assemble and use it. Now that I’m familiar with it, I can juice quickly.

I am amazed by how little waste there is with this juicer. It really gets the maximum goodness out of my fruit and veggies.

    I have wanted a juicer for such a long time. There are so many brands out there, not sure which to choose. I guess I’d have to look at my price point and how much I’m willing to spend. Will look into this one. That juice sounds delish.
