Good Morning Green Juice Recipe

This Good Morning Green Juice recipe is a perfect way to start your day. With all the right vitamins, nutrients and minerals, this juice will energize you and make your taste buds scream with excitement. It has a more fruity taste with hints of fresh romaine lettuce and strawberries. This juice is great for your morning drink because it is higher in fruit but loaded with all the good stuff to keep you going for a while. This juice is made of apple, orange, strawberry, blueberry, lemon, pomegranate, spinach, celery, cucumber, and romaine lettuce. Everything blends together really well and the fruits overpower the vegetables in taste. I love using blueberries in my morning drinks along with strawberries. It gives the juice an overall fruity taste regardless of what else goes into it. On to the Good Morning Green Juice Recipe!

Good Morning Green Juice Recipe Ingredients

Good Morning Green Juice Recipe

  • 5 Romaine Lettuce Leaves
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 3 Celery Stalks
  • 1 BIG handful of Spinach
  • 2 Handfuls of Blueberries
  • 3-5 Strawberries
  • 1 Orange
  • 1/2 Granny Smith Apple
  • 1/4 Lemon
  • 1/4-1/2 cup Pomegranate Juice

As always, make sure you wash your ingredients before you use them and be sure to core out your apple. I always trim the rind off of oranges and lemons, but leave a little bit on for added flavor. You can leave the rind on completely if you want. After all, the rind does contain phytonutrients that are very healthy for you. I hope you enjoy the Good Morning Green juice recipe. I often switch out my breakfast juices to try out new combinations but feel this juice is spot on to what I look for in a morning juice. Some good substitution options can be made if your not partial to certain fruits or veggies in the Good Morning Green juice. You could substitute zucchini for the cucumber,  kale for the spinach, blackberries for the blueberries, and even a pear for the apple. I would love to hear your comments on this juice and my others. So please leave comments or recipes below. As always, happy juicing!

  1. I actually juice with my blender.make it into a smoothie then pour the juice into a paint strainer, u can get the paint strainer at any hardware store n they cost 3$ for two, then i massage the juice out, google how to juice with a blender, just started 3 weeks ago, weighed my self last week for the first time 7 days later weighed myself jus bcuz n u lost 5 pounds in a week, btw i dont always strain my juice from blender, i drink it right from the blender also

  2. I am planning on trying this come payday. I know everyone tells me to use celery more, but the taste of celery just don’t appeal to me at all. I don’t even like celery seed or a flavor of celery in anything so far. Is there something you could substitute for celery that will still give you the same nutrition needed.

  3. Why remove apple core when juicing? We’ve been putting the entire apple (except stem) each time. Same for pears, etc. The only thing we remove are gritty carrot root-stems. Would appreciate input.

    • Apple seeds contain trace amounts of Arsenic and can build up over time.

  4. Do not use POM. Juice pomegranate at home. Coca cola is being sued for what little amount of POM actually consists of pomegranate juice. Besides, juicing is all about drinking fresh nutrient rich juices. Not something bottled you buy from the store.

  5. how many calories would that be

  6. I’m sorry, I see my question was already answered earlier. Sorry to bother.

  7. Hi, I’m brand new to juicing, and I was wondering how many servings one of your recipes typically yields? My roommate and I are juicing together so we’ll need to adjust the recipes accordingly. Thanks!

  8. With any freshly made juice, vitamins are lost if not consumed immediately. One thing to think about is, if you’ve never tried a juicing lifestyle change it’s best to do it on your days off for 2-3 days to start. Your body will go through a lot of changes getting rid of the build ups that are in your system. Some people’s systems are a bit more sensitive to the change in diet and will exhibit flu like symptoms: headache, nausea, stomach cramping, diarrhea, etc. Go slow and enjoy all the benefits juicing has to offer your mind and body.

  9. I work 12 hr shift2 and I want to do the juice diet but I not sure how to do this. I read that it is better to drink the mixture immediately and not store. I can’t take my juicer to work. So what can you tell me on this. Thank you.

    • I am currently on a 10 Day Juice diet, and I like you can’t take the juicer to work, so I make mine the night before and keep them in airtight bottles. So far it has been working well.

  10. I absolutely hate celery. Is there anything anyone would recommend as a substantial substitute?

  11. My husband and I are on our 3rd day of the 7 day juice fast, LOVE IT! It’s been such a good experience. I do have a question though regarding juicing greens. I’m finding that they are not rendering much juice at all and it seems like such a waste. Only a few drips of green juice come out for hand fulls of greens. Am I doing something wrong? Is this normal?
    I’m using the Breville Juice Fountain Duo.
    Thanks so much, and love your site!

    • Ardelle, welcome to JOJ and congrats to you and your husband on day 3 of your juice fast! It’s normal to get a minimal amount of juice in some leafy greens. Just know that the juice you do get is highly concentrated and still jam packed with nutrition! If you follow the recipes and still get around 16 ounces then you are doing everything correctly Ardelle! Cheers!

  12. Hi
    Just wanna know how many times a day you need to drink veggie juice for fasting
    Thank u

    • Farah, it’s best to have between 4-6 juices per day with each juice being around 16 ounces. It’s all a matter of listening to your body and having a juice when you feel hungry. Some people may have more or less. Cheers!

  13. Can this be done in the Nutri Bullet? I just got one as a gift and want to start jiucing. As a newbie, the difference between juicers/extractors/blender is a bit confusing, so any guidance you can give me to use the Nurti Bullet to its best usage would be much appreciated. I’m so glad I found your site here and will be reading more to get myself better educated in the juicing world for a healthier life!

  14. I wanted to know if you was doing a detoix it says to add banna I can not eat bannas they make my stomach hurt what can I use instead?

    • Cheryl, just don’t use a banana. Bananas give such little juice it won’t make much difference if you just leave it out. Hope this helps.

  15. Hi, I would like to know is the recipes for one serving per person ? And if I want to use fresh pomegranate what would be the quantity should it be with the seeds or without them?
    Thanks for sharing this we us

    • Yin, the recipes are for one serving for one person. The juice of the pomegranate is within the seeds. I usually just use a handful of seeds in a juice. It makes a big difference in taste. Enjoy!

  16. Donnie,

    I found your web site when I purchased a juicer for recipes….I was glad to find it full of other info as well…..This was my first juice and it turned out great….once I try some other recipes, I plan on going on your 7 day fast…..Thanks for the articles and recipes….

    • Tito, welcome to JOJ and congrats on your first juice! Keep me posted on your 7 day fast. I’m always here if you have any questions.

  17. I freeze bananas then run them through my Champion juicer.

  18. I am diabetic, fasting sugars around 110-130. What juices would you recommend. Going to do a 7 day fast starting on 8/29/2013 so any info would be helpful.

    • Joseph, before you decide to do a juice fast you should consult with you doctor. It’s important to not only get advice but to also discuss how to adjust any medications while on the juice fast. If you do juice, you should aim for a maximum of 1 fruit per juice. You should also include more protein in your juices and drink at least 64 ounces of water each day. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

  19. Hi, thank you for the reply, with regards to drinking water is it ok to drink sparkling water or does it have to be still. Thank you

  20. Hi, I have been thinking about starting the juicing diet, can you please tell me if it is ok to use frozen berries instead of fresh ones. Thank you

    • Michelle, you can use frozen fruits. Frozen fruits keep their nutrition but make sure you thaw them out before juicing.

  21. can you make a pitcher of this juice? How long can you keep in fridge?

    • You can make a pitcher if you like. Just keep it in an airtight container and it should hold fine throughout the day as long as you keep it in the refrigerator Catherine.

  22. Hello, I have recently been through a long stay in the hospital and as part of my cure I have been put on a liquid diet. I was thinking about juicing because that would give me more of a choice in substance. The one thing I am greatly worried about is protein. When juicing is there adequit protein in the recipes you find here to maintain a healthy weight. I can’t afford to lose any as I have lost so much through my sickness. Thanks for any advice you can give me. Dwayne

    • Dwayne, sorry to hear of you hospital stay. I hope all is okay. For a liquid diet, juicing is a great way to go as you’ll get everything you need in terms of nutrition. As far as protein, you get enough protein in your juices to maintain a healthy protein level. Vegetables do contain protein and I have written an article dedicated to the topic which you can read here

      If weight is an issue, make sure you drink a full 6 juices per day as not too limit your caloric intake too much. You may also add a pure unflavored protein isolate to your drinks if you want. The juice will be enough to keep you full and you’ll get more than enough vitamins and nutrients for your body. If you have any questions please let me know. We are starting a 3 day group juice fast on July 1st, if you would like to join us that would be great! You can read through the post here I have some recipes and a shopping list posted to make it easy for everyone. Hope to have you juicing with us.

  23. Hiya!! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?? My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue… If you have any suggestions, please share… Thank you!

    • Gabriella, I use a wordpress addon called WPTouch, it’s very easy to setup and works great on my iphone 4.

  24. I plan to juice for about 30-40 days. Can you give me some pointers on juicing on a budget,this could become very expensive. For example: Which veggies/fruits contain the most juice? Which veggies/fruits do not necessarily have to be organic?

    • Trisha, if you’re single juicing is actually inexpensive when you take into consideration what you would usually spend on eating per day. If you have a family to feed it’s a little different so I have some good pointers for you. You don’t have to get organic. Conventional is fine and often less expensive but make sure you clean it off very good before you juice. Buy the bigger packages of things like apples, oranges, carrots as they tend to last longer. Stuff like Spinach/Kale has a very short fridge life so don’t buy this stuff in large quantities at a time.

      Take a look in your town and see if there are any “Farmers Markets” around. It’s where local farmers meet up and sell their produce to the public. You can often find some really good prices here. Another thing to look into is something called “Market On The Move”. I’m not sure if it’s something that is just local in my area (Phoenix) but they allow you to pick up to 60 pounds of produce and it only costs $10. It’s decent quality produce and for $10 it’s one heck of a deal! I hope some of these tips will help you to cut some costs Trisha. I’ll be here if you have any questions.

  25. I like this idea Good Morning Juice for a healthy living. I do these everyday. Taste good as long as finding perfect combination.

  26. Any special reason you use POM juice in this instead of the seeds? Can you substitute one for the other?

    • Amanda, I grabbed the POM juice only because the grocery store didn’t have any pomegranate seeds. I prefer to use the seeds but the POM juice is a great substitute. They don’t boil or heat up their juice when pasteurizing and it’s 100% pomegranate. It’s a good sub but I still prefer the seeds straight from the pomegranate.

  27. Can you cut this in half? It just seems like so much!

    • Suzabelle, sure you can half this. Different recipes will yield different quantities in different juicers. This one makes around 20 ounces for me. Try juicing it and see what you get first. Thanks!

  28. does this stuff really work and also does it have any side effects??? Thank you

    • Sarah, read through the comments on the forum, yes, it does work. Read as much as you can about juicing. I have so many articles up that will help you to get a complete understanding of juicing, it’s benefits, the side effects, how to do it, and what to expect.

    • yes Sarah. Doctors here in Houston put patients on it to get their weight down before weight loss surgery and then again after surgery. An intake of veggies, protein, fruit and seeds can only yeild good results. Add simple walking or exercise and you will be hooked. :-)

  29. are you using an actual juicer or a blender….i have a juicer but was not sure if I can use things like bananas or blueberries in it…can you advise me on this

    • Sara, I’m using a juicer for juicing. Blenders are for smoothies. I use the Hamilton Beach juicer that you can find at

      Each juicer is different. Some juicers you can juice a banana, and some you cannot. If you’re using a masticating juicer I would advise against running a banana through it, but most centrifugal juicers should be able to handle it unless it’s noted otherwise in the manual that came with your juicer. You shouldn’t have any issues with blueberries though. What kind of juicer are you using Sara?
