Mojito Green Juice

Beat the summer heat with this refreshingly healthy green drink.

I have a new favorite green juice recipe. Although I’ve never done a full on green juice diet or green juice detox, I think that green juice has major benefits and drink it several days every week. I feel so healthy when I get a big bowl of vegetables into my diet, in liquid form, in addition to the veggies I eat all day long.

I found a mojito green juice recipe over on one of my favorite websites, Dr. Frank Lipman. The recipe on his site calls for spinach, I’ve changed it up a bit by using parsley instead. Whichever way you make it, I think you’ll find this green juice completely refreshing, and you’ll feel wonderful after you drink it.

Mojito Green Juice
  • 1 small bunch mint
  • 1 small bunch parsley
  • 1 lime
  • ½ inch fresh ginger
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 green apple
  1. Push mint, parsley, lime, ginger, cucumbers, and apple through a juicer
  2. Serve

While I used to have a Green Star juicer, I found that it took quite a long time to push the vegetables through and even longer to clean it. I recently switched over to this Breville juicer and am absolutely in love with it. It’s so easy to use that I juice several times per week, even when I’m on the go.

Here are some of my other favorite juice recipes:

    I’m a bit surprised you do not use a single auger masticating juicer, especially for greens. There us no comparison. Fir mire green juice, less oxidation, more nutrition. Overall no comparison. For future readers. Yes centrifugal is faster, but far less positive results, and more clean up. Maybe fir carrots, that’s it.
    Omega best way to go.

      Hi Donna, I had a Green Star which produces a much higher quality juice than the Breville that I now use, but wow, it took ages to make the juice and even longer to clean! I’ll look into single auger masticating juicers. Thanks for your comment :-)

      Hi Elana, yes, the Omega single auger is really the way to go. Waaaay, back had a Juiceman, haha, I mean way back when he was the only one around, he knew something back when, then went to another centrifugal, but as I learned years ago single auger, no comparison. And truly, the ckean up is zero compared to all the pieces of centrifugal juicers. Admittedly it’s not as quick but it’s worth a couple more minutes.
      I will be making this recipe. Ty. Hope your pleased if you give it a try. Xo

    I saved this recipe until I had time to try it. This morning I decided that I would like to make juice. Fortunately between my fridge and garden, I had everything for this recipe, except that my apple wasn’t green. It’s a very nice, refreshing drink!

    Elana thank your for this yummy one I cant wait for. I’ve been adding kale to my protein powder in my Vitamix and never had a juicer. Does anyone know if juicing or Vitamix is a healthier version to drink?

      I was told that using the Vitamix is better because you get fiber. I love my Ninja but I also adore my Jack LaLane juicer!!! I also use protein powder in my Ninja, but veggies is there can’t be beat!! I love my green grape, kale, cucumber, lime, green apple and mango smoothie in the evening. Especially when it is hot!!
