Kale Power Juice is a green juice packed with nutrient dense green veggies. A nutritious and delicious add to a juice cleanse or just a healthy lifestyle!!!
Juicing is having a moment in my house. And by a moment, I mean that we are drinking vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant-packed Kale Power Juice every day. I feel guilty for not sharing our fabulous new obsession with you earlier.
I did some research (ahem: a lot of research) on juicers and settled on a Hurom Slow Juicer, because, while it is more expensive than a centrifugal juicer, it retains more pulp and creates more juice.
We figured that to make long-term changes; we needed to make gradual changes to our diet. We started juicing, eating less meat, and cutting back (drastically) on sugar.
I’ve done quite a bit of experimenting, some tastier than others, and I’ve developed my standard “go-to” Kale Power Juice. It’s tasty but still packed full of low-calorie, nutrient-rich vegetables.
The majority of this juice is Kale, which is a nutrition powerhouse all on its own. It is an antioxidant; anti-inflammatory; a cell detoxifying agent; a major source of vitamin K (1,180% DV!), vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, copper, vitamin B6, and more; a significant amount of Omega- 3 fatty acids; and cancer-preventing glucosinolates. The body converts these glucosinolates into cancer preventative compounds. If you want to know more about kale, you can read more than you thought possible at The World’s Healthiest Foods.
Kale Power Juice
- 8 oz Lacinato / Tuscan Kale (about 1 bunch)
- 4 oz Red Kale
- 1 Collard Green Leaf
- ¼ bunch parsley
- 3 carrots
- 2 apples (I like 1 Fuji or Gala and 1 Pink Lady)

- 2 lemons
- 1 inch ginger root
- If you are using a Slow Juicer then you will need to cut everything up into 1” pieces prior to feeding them into the juicer. Juice and enjoy!
