Kale-aid Is The Best Kale Juice Recipe Ever

kale-aid kale juice recipe

Crisp, refreshing and oh-so-good-for-you, this super-green spin on lemonade might just be the best thing you can put in your body.

I’ve been drinking it every day for the past week and have noticed a visible improvement in my skin, mood, and energy levels. This green juice recipe is super hydrating, extremely nutrient-dense, and even tastes delicious.

Drink it often to “aid” with your health & wellness goals; you’ll also glow from the inside out. 😉

Kale-aid Kale Juice Recipe

Serves 1-2


  • 5 large kale leaves
  • 1-2 large cucumbers
  • 1 lemon (peeled)
  • 1 apple
  • 1 inch knob ginger (peeled)
  • 1-2 large ribs celery

Method: Wash and prepare all produce then push through a juicer. Use organic produce whenever possible. Serve immediately over ice.

If you want to make a double batch and store some for later, read how to store green drinks here.

For curious minds my juicer of choice is a ‪‎Breville‬ Multispeed Juice Fountain. I find it produces the most amount of juice from leafy greens while still being relatively affordable.

    Using the tops of beetroot is as important as using the root itself. A lot of people make the mistake of throwing the tops away & only using the root!

    I use a Juicer instead of a blender & only drink the juice of vegetables. I rarely eat the pulp. What do you think?

    • Yes, beet greens are delicious if you have them! My store usually sells loose beets without the greens for some reason, but beet greens are great sauteed or juiced. Thanks for stopping by the blog!

  • Fran Ellis

    I drink something very similar to this (only half a lemon and half-inch of ginger) and it’s become my favorite raw juice. I only juice a couple of days a week, but you’ve got me thinking I should follow your example and drink it every day!

    • That’s what I love about juice recipes, everyone can tailor the quantities of ingredients to their own tastes. Cheers!

  • Sandy Weinberg

    Thinking about just mixing this up in my Vitamix, I’d rather have the benefits and full-feeling from ALL the fiber as well! =)

  • Leah Bosworth

    Yes, I drink this juice almost every day. I love it and I make it every day about 50 or 60 times for people at True Food Kitchen in Scottsdale, AZ where I bartend. :~D

    • One of my favorite places! Is this the same recipe? Even better!

  • Leah Bosworth

    Yep! I had a sneaking suspicion that you might like it there. :~D

  • Jennifer Corbin

    How can I make this using a NutriBullet? Thanks for any help ahead of time 🙂

    • Juicer is best. If you don’t have one, you can use a high-speed blender (and add about a cup of purified water before you blend) and then strain it through a cheese cloth or nut-milk bag. Again, if you can use a juicer that’s best.

    • catalina

      ive been using a nutribullet for my juicing and I love it I just add water to it and strain it. turns out fabulous!

  • Joey

    If we are using baby kale, would you say two big handfuls are equivalent to 5 big kale leaves? Thanks!

    • Sounds about right, the recipe is pretty flexible. 4-5 big handfuls should do it.

  • Hanen Skapoullou

    I have made this juice but noticed that not even a drop came out of the juicer when I put the kale!!??

    • threenorns

      if you’re using a centrifugal juicer, it has to be HIGH end to get anything out of kale and other green leafies such as wheatgrass.

      • Yes, I totally agree. Most centrifugal juicers (the ones that have the basket and blade spinning in the middle) won’t yield very much juice from greens. I use a Breville MultiSpeed Juice Fountain (that is centrifugal) and I find I get a decent amount of juice from it.

    Hi Elizabeth: I am fairly new to juicing. I tried your recipe for Kale-aid and I have to tell you I am in love!! It is so good. Unfortunately, even though I thought my high-end juicer would juice kale it did not 🙁 So, I put the kale in my Vitamix with some water. I juiced everything else normally (added an extra celery stick 😉 and then added the juice to the kale in the Vitamix to blend well. Poured over ice… let sit for a bit and OMGosh! Heaven. Thank you! Thank you! I might add some pineapple to it just to play around, but your kale-aid is now a staple. Big Hug!

  • Loleta

    OMG! This juice is amazing, received a Hamilton Beach juicer for Christmas and I’ve been juicing this recipe for the last 4 days……..AH-MAZING! I’VE added more Ginger and I have Slappy added spinach. I see a difference in my skin, energy level and overall feel. Thank you! I’ve replaced my coffee each morning with this drink

  • Theresa Stanley

    This is delicious! After months of seeing your juices on Instagram, I took your advice and scoped out a Breville Juice Fountain. Now, I am addicted.

  • catalina

    Delicious! I’ve just recently joined the juicing wagon and I have become obsessed with kale! I not only love to juice with kale but I love to eat it as a salad so I sub it for lettuce. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  • Sierra

    This is a good recipe. The only thing I added was an extra apple and honey. It is very strong and definitely has a PUNCH to it. Did you mean the juice of a whole lemon, or an entire lemon?

  • Akash Keluth

    Can I do this with a blender?

    • jenny

      I use a blender and strain it through a nut milk bag. I have a juicer and found i get more juice through just blending it all and straining plus it’s way easier clean up! I tried cheese cloth and store bought nut milk bags and they all let pulp through but this last one I got as a gift and it’s amazing! It has a sinch to keep it in your cup when pouring and it makes it so pure and fine tasting like I bought it from a store! I’d Def recommend blending. I have a $15 walmart blender too so it doesn’t need to be fancy lol. Hope this helped! Oh and here’s the bag I use if you are interested!

  • Ronald Rood

    great recipe , besides the lovely refreshing taste it is packed with goodness

  • Vinniffa

    I’ve been juicing my Kale with the Omega J8006( ) Great juicer, but a bit slow. The yield is great,

  • times2come

    I’m also new to juicing and am hooked! I use the lemon with the peel which has pectin in it to chelate radiation from the body to!!! The radiation from the Fukushima disaster that is, which many people don’t realize is falling on us everyday since the accident.
