Green Protein Juice Fit for The Hulk

Okay, I know this doesn't sound like the first thing you want to reach for in your fringe, but I was actually pleasantly surprised with the taste test results. If you are used to drinking green juices and shakes then this combination won't be a shock to your pallet :o).

This morning I juiced (click on each ingredient for a link to health benefits): 1/2 cabbage, 1 cucumber, 2 Pink Lady apples, 1/3 bunch parsley, and 3 cups fresh spinach. The juice made enough for two servings so I divided it in half, After I juiced everything I added two small scoops of Dr. Mercola's Pea Protein, and then a packet of Amazing Grass Wheat Grass. I filled my shaker to the top to eliminate as much oxygen as I could, shook it up, and then let it chill for 30 mins in the fridge.

I know this probably doesn't sound exciting or appetising whatsoever, but I promise that it was actually a little sweet after adding the wheat grass packet, and it didn't leave a nasty aftertaste. This juice was the perfect balance of protein, natural sugar, and detoxing agents that I am trying to get in the morning. I feel energized and ready to take on the world :o).

Happy Juicing, Meg


  1. Do you think the pink lady apples is what could make this taste nice?

  2. I was only planning on adding one apple, but decided to add two after taste testing with just the one. It still wasn't super tasty until I added the wheat grass packet, which has a slightly earthy and sweet taste to it. Since I divided the juice in half, to share, I wasn't too worried about there being too much sugar from the apples.
