Green Juice Recipe Secrets Exposed: Free Juicing Recipes for Life


This is John Kohler with
Today we have a very special treat for you. What I’m going to do today is share my favorite
juicing recipe, and, you know, many people that buy juicers form
gets the juicer and most juicing companies actually don’t include any juicing recipes
with their juicer and that’s an absolute travesty. I think they should include some juicing recipes
with their juicers, but because they’re not including the recipe, that gives me the opportunity
to share my recipes with you, but better than sharing a recipe with you, what I want to
do today is share with you the overall concept of making your own juice recipes in your own
kitchen, much like, you know, when you learn how to bake cookies, if you learned how to
bake cookies, you know when you’re a kid, all cookies have some ingredients in common,
such as flour, sugar, eggs, shortening, and then they add like oatmeal or add like, you
know, chocolate chips or add nuts or add, you know, macadamias, or whatever, they add
different things, So, just like baking cookies, juicing is the same exact way. There’s basically,
you know, a protocol, or basically a basic recipe, or a basis that you want to follow.
You always do the basic things and then you could add things, much like creating cookies.
You can add the chocolate chips. So, in the case of juicing, really simple, real easy,
lets go over it right now. So, the basis of every juice, and that means ¾ of your glass
of juice is always going to be, in my opinion, these base ingredients. So, the base should
include like celery. Celery should be a big base in your juice. You could, also use the
apples as a base in your juice. Another thing you could use as the base in your juice are
some zucchinis, excellent good base for your juice, and finally you could use some cucumbers
as the base of your juice. Some other things you could also use in the base of the juice
that I actually don’t have shown here today are romaine lettuce hearts, they’re actually
nice and water rich, very good, nice neutral flavor, and the other thing you could use
as the base of your juice is also things like carrots. Carrots are an excellent base as
well. So, the reason why we want 75% of our glass with these common vegetables is that
they’re pretty, like, neutral, you know. Yes, they have some taste and they’re kind of strong,
but, you know, they’re pretty good juices. You could actually just make a juice out of
this stuff straight. So, that’s actually our basis. So, your basis you could actually use
any percentage of these, a quarter cucumber, a whole cucumber a part of a zucchini, all
the zucchini. You know, I try to keep my bases really simple, so today, actually, my basis
is exactly this. I’m going to use cucumber, zucchini, apple and celery and you’ll see
me do it. I’m using the mega vert 330 HD juicer today. This is actually one of my favorite
juicers. This is a nice one-step machine. So, 75-100% of your glass should be these
basically common or starter vegetables and fruits actually, that I just mentioned. So,
you could do your whole glass and that could just be your whole juice and, you know, use
any combination of those fruits and vegetables that you like that, you know, that’s going
to taste good for you or what’s available for you at your local supermarket of health
food store, even, better yet, in your garden. So, that being said, if you are going to do
75% of your juice, we still have 25% left in the glass to fill up. So, that last 25%
of the juice, in my opinion should be something like dark leafy green vegetables. So, the
dark leafy green vegetables such as the kale and the collards are some of the most nutrient
dense vegetables and actually nutrient-dense foods on the whole planet. That means they
have so much nutrients actually for what they are, and it’s actually amazing how many nutrients
are in there and the best way to get the leafy green vegetables are to grow them yourself.
So, I’m here in my front yard garden and I’m going to go ahead and harvest some tree collard
here right behind me and also some Bok choi. So, let me go ahead and harvest some of those.
So, the best way to basically juice anything is to get it fresh-picked, whether it’s grown
yourself or from your local farmers market, freshest is always bestest is what I lie to
say and you want to use the freshest quality produce, you know, to juice, to get the best
results. If you’re trying to juice things that are soft and wilty and going bad, then
your not going to get your results with the juice and the juice quality’s not going to
be as good as if it’s fresh picked. So, where back, here we go, awe got a bunch of Bok choi,
which is fresh, literally fresh picked from my garden. Now we’re going to juice t all.
So while I did say that you want 75% of your juice, of the base stuff, you know, such as
what I’m using today is celery, apples, zucchini and cucumbers, you don’t want to necessarily
put all that into the juicer first and then put all your greens, you want to mix up your
greens and basically that’ going to allow for you juicer to work more effectively. So,
first we’re going to go ahead and turn this machine on. First, we’re just going to drop
a bok choi leaf in there and bok choi also can be used as a base vegetables, you know,
in the base instead of just as a leafy green in addition because they are actually kind
of watery so they can actually be used either way. So, push that right in the machine. Next,
we’re going to definitely want to rotate the produce that we put in the machine, so next
were going to put in some celery and you’ll always want to basically break the celery
up into little pieces before you put it in the machine. The problem is in this machine,
the strings of the celery actually may get stuck in the machine. So, by breaking it up
you break down the strings and you can already see the juice starting to come out here. Let’s
go ahead and put some tree collards in there, too, and the tree collards are defiantly my
favorite. If you have the opportunity to get some tree collards, they are kind of rare,
they get really sweet in the wintertime. Next, we just cut the zucchini in half, we’re going
to drop it in there, and the omega vert 330 HD is literally self-feeding. It’s just basically
all I got to do is drop stuff in there. For the most part I don’t even need to use the
pusher, and it’s getting juiced up. Next, we’re going to go ahead and cut this apple
up and some people ask, you know, ‘hey, John, can you juice the apple seeds?’ Well, the
juicer can handle the apple seeds no problem, but they do say that in the apple seeds there’s
some cyanide. So, you know, you personally might not want to juice the apple seeds. Sometime
I do, sometimes I don’t, but if you are, you know, paranoid, then you might want to just
make sure you take them out. So, today, I’ve taken them all out, we’re just going to dump
that in there, let the omega vert juicer juice them on up. Next, more collard greens. Now,
you know, juicing is an excellent way to increase your fruit and vegetables, especially the
vegetables, consumption Most people don’t eat enough vegetables in their diet, and by
juicing your vegetables, you can basically increase the servings of vegetables that you
get in your diet really easily, like, I mean, I could eat a big salad of all these greens,
but you know what? It’s a lot better to juice them all up. You basically get all the nutrition
that’s coming out on this side, all the juice, all the nutrition of the leafy greens without
the fiber. So, all the fiber’s coming out on this side, and that’s what I juicer does,
and that’s what our bodies do. Out bodies are basically nothing more or less than a
juice extractor. We eat solid foods and then out one side come liquids and out the other
side come solids, and so when the juice breaks down the food for you, it makes it a lot easier
to digest. So, juice is one of the easiest things in this whole world to digest. So,
because it is easier to digest it takes less energy form your body to digest the food and
that means you will have more energy to do the other tings in life that you want to do.
So, as you can see, we got, you know, some juice going on. We’re going to juice more
leafy greens. One of the main benefits of the leafy greens are that they are rich in
chlorophyll. So, chlorophyll is basically the green coloring in the leafy greens and
chlorophyll, very important, really helpful in detoxification in its very nutritious food.
We should all be eating more chlorophyll by the way of leafy greens through the juicer.
I mean, this is like liquid chlorophyll right there. You can go into the health food store
and you can buy liquid chlorophyll and for a little bottle it’s a lot of money, but you
can make your own at home with the omega vert 330 HD juicer, actually most other juicers
for that matter. That being said, you know, some juicers actually do perform better juicing
certain produce than others. So, for example, the mega vert juicer is pretty much a well-rounded
machine that’ll juice most things fairly well and I like it because it’s fairly good at
juicing leafy greens. Many juicers actually will not effective juice the leafy greens
such as the centripetal ejection juicers. I do have many different videos; you want
to be sure to check YouTube. I’ve made many different videos comparing all the different
juicer styles showing, actually juicing different things and different juicers so that you can
see how they work before you buy them and hopefully with these videos, you’ll be more
aware of how the juicers work and you’ll be able to make an informed decision when buying
a juicer, and that’s really important to me to basically match the juicer that you’re
buying to match it with what you want to do with the juicer. So, I have another video
on YouTube, actually it’s called juicing, what is your juicing style? Because based
on your juicing style, that’s going to determine what juicer you’re going to get and that’s
going to work best for you. Alright, let’s put some more Bok choi in there, I love Bok
choi, really good stuff. Put some more collards. This pulp is some really dry pulp. Now, unless
you buy like a norwok juicer or a wells press, that’s basically a press that really gets
the pulp sawdust dry, all the juicers will leave some basically wetness in the pulp and
depending on the juicer and the produce that’s being juiced, its going to depend on how wet
the pulp is. Certain styles of juicers are more effective in juicing certain things.
For example, centripetal ejection style juicers are actually more efficient than this style
juicer when juicing things like carrots, for example, but this machine is more efficient
in general juicing leafy greens than the centripetal ejection style juicer. Alright, so, let’s
go ahead and put some more apples in there and it looks like we’re almost done juicing.
Our collection cup’s just about full there. The basis of any juice should be the common
basically base vegetables. Once you got that down, then you can add some greens to basically
make your juice more nutritious. Of course, you don’t even need to add the greens if you
can just do the base, and once again, if you can juice any of the things in the base, if
you only have celery and apples. If you have zucchini, you can use that, too. It doesn’t
really matter what you do. I want you to learn how to basically make your own base and experiment
and have fun and another ting I’d like to say is another recipe that you can do is what
I call monojuicing. So, you could juice straight carrots and drink straight carrot juice and
for many years when I got into juicing I did just drink straight carrot juice and nothing
else and it was absolutely phenomenal, so good, and you want to make sure you get the
bunny love brand organic carrots. They’re actually the sweetest. So, hopefully you learned
more about constructing and make your own juice recipes out of what you have and a lot
of times, you know, I’ll come out to my garden and look and see what all I have to juice
and a lot of times I’ll actually just juice what I have an abundance of because when your
juicing produce it runs out very quickly. A lot of produce basically compresses into
a little bit of juice and the juice is so delicious, so nutritious and so helpful for
you. That being said, if you don’t want to make your own recipes, at discount,
for a limited time, we’re offering the juice mans book, and this juice mans book is called
the juice man power of juicing. This is absolutely my favorite juicing book in the whole wide
world. It has over like 100 different juice recipes and we’re offering this for under
$4 for a limited time. You know, this is a New York Times best seller, over ½ million
copies sold. So, man, I could list off some recipes inhere for you. Here’s one. Winters
pineapple tangerine juice. One pineapple round, preferably organic, and tangerines. Here’s
one. Cantaloupe juice. It’s just straight up cantaloupe, cantaloupe only. The cap coder.
3 apples and 1 cup on cranberries. I mean, so many different. Here’s a green power juice.
4 carrots, 2 stalks of celery, handful of spinach, handful of parsley. Graying hair
remedy. That’s where the juicing books come in handy, they have all these different remedy
things, and I don’t know if they work or not. One wedge of cabbage, handful of spinach,
and some carrots. So, you know, this book is available for a limited time if you do
need a recipe book, but that being said, I encourage you to learn how to make your own
juice recipes in the kitchen so you can be independent of juice recipes books. You don’t
need them, you can make your own recipes. So, I want you to be able to come up with
your own juice recipes. The most important thing to remember is, you know, when you make
a juice, don’t throw everything but the kitchen sink in the juicer. You know, whatever you
have left in your fridge, don’t just put it in there ’cause you can make some really nasty
juice. If you just stick to the basis of what I told you, you’re going to be alright and,
you know, go slow and surely and, you know, whatever you do, when you make a juice recipe,
try to use less than 6 ingredients. It’s always going to turn out better the less ingredients.
The more ingredients you start to put in there, the more chance it’s going to taste funky
and all that kind of stuff and you know what? Most of the time I like to do single ingredient
juices. Only carrot juice, only apple juice. Actually, maybe apple-ginger. That’s actually
really good one, but in any case, hopefully you’ve learned today about how to construct
your own juicing recipes using your own juicer. Once again, this is John Kohler with

  7. mreisma says:

    is it really necessary to break up the celery and tree collards for this machine?

  8. says:

    Its not "necessary". I have juiced without breaking them up. The you dont break them up, the juice will be pulpier, and the outlet port tends to back up fairly quickly.
