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

Ingredients:

  • 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.

    Hi,

    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?

  2. Elizabeth Rider

    July 22nd, 2013 at 9:33 am

    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!

    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!

  4. Elizabeth Rider

    July 23rd, 2013 at 12:00 pm

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

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

  6. Elizabeth Rider

    July 23rd, 2013 at 3:29 pm

    Equally delicious!

  7. Leah Bosworth

    July 23rd, 2013 at 7:01 pm

    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

  8. Elizabeth Rider

    July 23rd, 2013 at 7:03 pm

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

  9. Leah Bosworth

    July 23rd, 2013 at 7:27 pm

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

  10. Elizabeth Rider

    July 23rd, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    Yes, one of my favorites for sure 🙂

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

  12. Elizabeth Rider

    July 24th, 2013 at 9:01 am

    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.

  13. catalina

    March 16th, 2014 at 6:41 pm

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

  14. Joey

    July 30th, 2013 at 10:35 am

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

  15. Elizabeth Rider

    July 30th, 2013 at 11:16 am

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

  16. Hanen Skapoullou

    August 30th, 2013 at 5:53 am

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

  17. threenorns

    November 1st, 2013 at 10:32 pm

    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.

  18. Elizabeth Rider

    November 11th, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    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!

    Great technique! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    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

  22. Elizabeth Rider

    January 6th, 2014 at 2:01 pm

    So glad!

  23. Theresa Stanley

    March 4th, 2014 at 7:19 pm

    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.

    Welcome to the juice world 🙂

  25. catalina

    March 16th, 2014 at 6:45 pm

    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!

  26. Sierra

    March 17th, 2014 at 7:00 pm

    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?

  27. Akash Keluth

    October 18th, 2014 at 8:27 am

    Can I do this with a blender?

  28. jenny

    November 3rd, 2014 at 6:23 am

    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!

    I’ve been juicing my Kale with the Omega J8006( http://www.ujuicer.com/omega-j6006-juicer-review/ ) Great juicer, but a bit slow. The yield is great,

  32. 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.

    I love anything that has lemon, ginger, and apple!

  37. Pam

    November 26th, 2018 at 5:25 am

    Can a blender be used? As that is all I have

  38. Elizabeth Rider

    November 28th, 2018 at 2:18 am

    Hi Pam, it will be a smoothie instead of juice (fiber left in) in a blender but yes, you can do that. Cut the lemon by half and make sure you peel it, as a whole lemon will be too much. Also add 1-2 cups of water or coconut water to get it to blend. ~E

    I’m looking forward to start eating more healthy. I’m in my early 50’s and have a soon to be 14 year old . And I want to start making healthier meals and healthy snacks for her as well. So much things that cannot pronounce in food these days it’s scary. Time to get healthy.
