In case you are following this blog for a while, you probably know that this is not the healthiest blog on the food blogging community. I’m not aiming to become the next Oh she glows! — Btw I love her recipes.
But recently I’ve found myself enjoying the benefits of juicing. For that reason, I have a couple recipes on this blog with great healthy juices. Recipes like “tres en uno” or banana and a strawberry smoothie can become handy in this journey.
The truth is that if you are like me, and sometimes we don’t get the recommended daily vegetable and fruits intake (about 5 serving of veggies and 2 of fruits), you can find that juicing is a great alternative for your overall health.

Benefits of drinking spinach and apple smoothies?
This energizing juice is made of 4 super healthy foods. I’ll briefly explain the main benefits of each of these:
- Spinach: Contain vitamin K1, A, C. Folic acid, iron, calcium, magnesium.
- Apples: Fiber, pectin (this helps you feel less hungry), vitamin C, K, A, and E.
- Ginger: Tons of antioxidant.
- Lemon: Antioxidant and vitamin C.
This makes of this spinach apple smoothie the best decision for a quick breakfast. Drinking with an empty stomach will get you the best results.
You can add stevia if you have a sweeter tooth or if your apples are not that naturally sweet. Luckily, I got these beautiful and super sweet green apples that fulfill my sugar cravings.
What about the fiber?
When you are juicing, this is a commonly asked question. If you use a juicer you will currently lose about 90% of the dietary fiber that is naturally within the veggies and fruits you are using.
Instead, if you use a regular blender you won’t lose the fiber unless you strain the juice. This will all depend on personal preferences. Strained juice can be easier to drink. I like to strain half of the juice to get a watery consistency but still get enough fiber from the apples and the spinach. So, yes you will get a thick juice but it will be great for your bowel health.
I hope you enjoy this healthy juice recipe and I see you in the next one!
