Easy Summer Green Juice

Updated: Jul 6, 2021

No juicer needed!

Juicing is a great way to get your greens. But not everyone has or wants to invest in a juicer, and store bought juice can be cost prohibitive and frankly, a waste of plastic.

I made this recipe for my friend Tom who swapped out his juicer for a NutriBullet to free up valuable NYC kitchen space.

I don't have a NutriBullet, so I made it in my regular blender... Adapting it to the smaller pulse blender required some tweaks that Tom voluntarily test-kitchened and remedied.

So here's Easy Summer Green Juice two ways!

Regular Blender Recipe


  • 1/2 cucumber

  • 1 apple (any kind you like, I tend to use granny because I like things tart)

  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon

  • 2 handfuls spinach

  • 1/2 C water

  • a few ice cubes


  • Blend ingredients

  • Serve as is if you like more of a smoothie texture, or put through mesh strainer if you like more of a juice texture

NutriBullet Version


  • 1 peeled apple

  • 1/3 peeled cucumber

  • handful of spinach

  • half a lemon's juice

  • water as needed


  • press the blend button

  • Stick in the freezer to chill
