How to Make Green Juices Taste Delicious

It’s our Magic 3 – and boy are they magical.  It’s amazing just how much they can change the way our taste buds react to the darker green juice combinations.  Even your children will love them, and oh yes, even your reluctant partner in love.

Here is the easiest way to make those dark green juices come alive and taste spectacular!

MAGIC 3

  1. Limes/Lemons
  2. Fresh Mint (Spearmint and Peppermint are the best tasting)
  3. Apples or Pears

TOP GREENS

If you use the following leafy and nutritious greens, then our Magic 3 can work magic on the taste. The TOP Greens, nutrition wise,  not in any specific order are kale, spinach, parsley, swiss chard, collards, turnip greens, mustard greens, broccoli, green and red romaine lettuces and green and red cabbage.

Here is a good example of how to balance out your green drinks. Make your juice combo have these percentages:

  • 80% from any one of the top greens above
  • 10% from apples or pears
  • 10% from lemons or limes

If you leave the peel on the limes and/or lemons, this will make your drink stronger. If your produce is not organic, please never use the skin, but double up on the lime and/or lemons because without the skin, they are not as potent.  So, for example, if you are using 1  lime with skin, we say use 2 limes without the peel.

One Fruit And No More!

We do not recommend adding any other fruit into the green juice combinations because if you add too much fruit,  you will mitigate any real value in absorption of nutrients and the drink becomes much less alkaline.  The whole idea is to absorb nutrients and to receive the benefits of the high alkalinity from these green juices. That’s why we limit the sweetness to only 10% of the drink.  Keep it down to 10% and you’ll be fine, even if you want to add 10% of pineapple as the only sweetener.  I don’t recommend it, but if you must, then just do the 10%.

Mint Can Be A Great Addition

Add as much of the mint into the drinks as you like because they are a leafy herb, rich in nutrients and very low in sugars.  Even the limes or lemons can be extended to 20% if you have to in the beginning, to start to train your taste buds to like the green juices.  But I am asking you not to add too much fruit.  The secret is to add more mint to the drink if you are struggling along with a lime.

Add Green Juice To Nut Or Seed Milk

green milk webDid you know freshly juiced leafy greens bring superior quality and quantity to our hemoglobin? This is why people who drink a lot of dark leafy green juices have pure, beautiful white blood cells without any fungus, distortion or toxins in them.

If you can make fresh almond milk or any kind of fresh nut or seed milks, did you ever think of adding fresh organic leafy green juices to them? Shelley Young and my wife Linda made this juice together last summer, and according to their viewpoint, this combination brings high alkalinity, protein and super-nutrients to our bloodstream almost instantly.

Fresh, dark leafy greens brings in the quality and quantity of our hemoglobin meaning they are excellent blood builders. Combined with the high alkaline almond milk, the natural, heart healthy fats from the almonds make this a super-powerhouse of nutrients. Linda and I make the recipe below frequently after a morning workout because it’s light, but highly sustaining. You won’t be hungry for several hours afterwards.

With our PowerGrind Pro juicer, put the spinach through first, then start adding in the almonds and alternate between the soaked nuts and the cucumber, adding water as necessary. Finish flushing through with the celery.  If you don’t have a juicer that makes nut and seed milks, juice all your greens, then set aside. Blend your almonds, then strain through a nut bag, then combine the green juice to the almond milk. Here is the recipe:
GREEN MILK
1 Cup Spinach
1 cup (soaked) Almonds
4 ribs Celery
1 large Cucumber
 (If you want it to be a bit sweeter, add a golden delicious apple while juicing.)

Jay’s Holiday Dozen Day Ten Jay’s Famous Lemonade

This is Day Ten of 12 consecutive posts with Jay demonstrating how to make each juice recipe. Also included is nutrition and research information to compliment Jay’s choice of fruit and/or vegetable drinks.  Happy Holidays from all of us at JayKordich.com

Day Ten – Jay’s Famous Lemonade

Most everyone loves an ice cold glass of freshly made lemonade. In the video below Jay Kordich says if you’ve never made HIS famous lemonade, then you haven’t had REAL lemonade. No sugar is used, just lemon and apples.

Did you know that the white pulp of lemons is chock full of bioflavonoids?  This provides antioxidants, is anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, protects against free radical damage and strengthens weak blood vessels and cataracts. Lemons are also high in vitamin C, yet another powerful antioxidant as well as a strong builder of the immune system. Also they are one of the best alkaline foods you can put in your body.

JAY’S FAMOUS LEMONADE Recipe:
1/4 lemon,  two apples.

As you’ll see, Jay is using the outside skin as well as the inside of the lemon. For this reason, we recommend a thorough washing of the lemon before juicing, even if you purchase organic lemons.

Jay’s Holiday Dozen Day Nine Cantaloupe Juice

This is Day Nine of 12 consecutive posts with Jay demonstrating how to make each juice recipe. Also included is nutrition and research information to compliment Jay’s choice of fruit and/or vegetable drinks.  Happy Holidays from all of us at JayKordich.com

Day Nine – Cantaloupe Juice

One of the best fruits to make into juice is cantaloupe. It has an amazingly different, more creamy and vanilla shake taste when juiced. The way to get that extra taste is by juicing with the skin and all, cut into strips and run through your juice machine. If it’s a conventional melon, you may want to consider removing the skin to avoid pesticide residue.

The orange-yellow color of the flesh of a cantaloupe tells us it’s full of beta-carotene. We know from years of nutrition research that this provides many anti-cancer benefits as well as helping to give our skin a healthy glow. It also contains high levels of potassium that works synergistically with sodium and is important in regulating nerve and muscle activity.

At first it looks like the antioxidant levels are lower than other fruits but when you juice cantaloupe this will concentrate those nutrients and actually provides more polyphenol concentration than many other fruits. Therefore juicing cantaloupe is an easy way to add all of these valuable nutrients to the body.

Lower Inflammation Indicated by Research

A study involving hundreds of women has shown cantaloupe to be effective at lowering the risk of metabolic syndrome in those who ate the most fruit. The five fruits that contributed most to total fruit intake were apples, grapes, cantaloupe, watermelon, and bananas. The indicator most used to show lower inflammation levels, C-Reactive Protein, (CRP) was at healthy levels in the group that ate the greatest amount, approx. 12 oz per day. It’s indicated that the anti-inflammatory phytonutrients in cantaloupe and other fruits helped the women have lower, healthy CRP levels as well as less risk for metabolic syndrome.

Here’s Jay making cantaloupe juice with his PowerGrind Pro juicer.

Jay’s Holiday Dozen Day Eight The Liver Mover

This is Day Eight of 12 consecutive posts with Jay demonstrating how to make each juice recipe. Also included is nutrition and research information to compliment Jay’s choice of fruit and/or vegetable drinks.  Happy Holidays from all of us at JayKordich.com

Day Eight –  Liver Mover

Over 40 years ago Jay Kordich created one of his signature drink combinations simply using beets and apples. He calls it The Liver Mover. In the video below Jay makes this drink and talks about the importance of making sure your liver is performing at top efficiency. He says “Your liver is one of your key organs and it’s imperative it’s functioning properly for optimum health.”

Through the benefit of years and also recent clinical studies about beets, we now know even more about the benefits, not only for eating beets, but also beet juice. Research now indicates beet juice can improve brain function, especially in older adults.

Beets are high in nitrates that stimulate circulation to benefit intestinal health, blood pressure and exercise performance. In a recent study daily beet juice consumption was shown to improve blood flow, especially to the frontal lobe of the brain where cognitive function is more critical as we age.

Jay’s Liver Mover is easy to make using his PowerGrind Pro juicer and provides measurable benefits. It’s tasty too! The recipe is 1/2 beet and one or two apples.

Now here’s Jay:

Jay’s Holiday Dozen Day Seven Mint Julep

This is Day Seven of 12 consecutive posts with Jay demonstrating how to make each juice recipe. Also included is nutrition and research information to compliment Jay’s choice of fruit and/or vegetable drinks.  Happy Holidays from all of us at JayKordich.com

Day Seven –  Jay’s Mint Julep

First up is the Mint with many health benefits. An anti-oxidant with disease preventing properties, it contains the essential oil Menthol, an analgesic, (pain killer) and counter-irritant. Research has shown mint to relax the intestinal wall and help with irritable bowel syndrome.

Mint contains calcium, magnesium and potassium as well as vitamin A, beta carotine, vitamin C and E. There are also B-complex vitamins like folates, riboflavin and B-6 and it also contains vitamin-K.

Next is Lemon with the skin and the white pulp. High in potassium for reduced risk of stroke, they also offer pectin for controlling cholesterol and of course vitamin C and bioflavonoids for strong blood vessels and eye health. Hesperetin and naringenin are flavonoids in lemons that show anti-inflammatory properties and immune system support.

Research indicates the lemon peel and oil helps reduce the risk of skin cancer. It also contains a substance called Limonene, which produces anti cancer properties in lab research and increases beneficial enzymes in the liver. Plus the vitamin C is a natural antihistamine and helps with allergic reactions.

Finally the apple. Research conducted at Cornell University has also shown apples may help keep breast cancer away, as well as the doctor.  Apples are full of phytonutrients for blood sugar regulation and flavonoids like Quercetin to help break down carbohydrates into simple sugars.

They have polyphenols that have been shown to lessen the absorption of glucose from the digestive tract and to stimulate cells in the pancreas to secrete insulin. This increases the uptake of glucose from the blood contributing to better regulation of blood sugar.

Apples are also high in pectin for controlling cholesterol. They have a strong antioxidant composition that helps with the oxidation of fats in our diet and apples have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties that is still being studied aggressively by scientists and researchers worldwide.

Sound good?  Use Jay’s PowerGrind Pro juicer and make a glassful today. You’ll be glad you did.

Recipe:
1 Handful Spearmint Leaves
1/2 Lemon with the skin
3 or 4 Apples.
Ice

Jay’s Holiday Dozen Day Six Evening Regulator

This is Day Six of 12 consecutive posts with Jay demonstrating how to make each juice recipe. Also included is nutrition and research information to compliment Jay’s choice of fruit and/or vegetable drinks.  Happy Holidays from all of us at JayKordich.com

Day Six –  Pear & Apple Evening Regulator

We usually do not think of pears as one of the most nutritious of fruits, when in fact pears pack quite a punch when it comes to nutrient content as well as great taste. As far as juice recipes are concerned, pears are a great neutral sweetener for many combinations, especially for almond milks.

Pears have been shown in recent studies to improve insulin sensitivity in women, attributed to certain groups of flavonoids. Intake of these groups has been associated with decreased risk of type 2 diabetes in both women and men. The new analysis of the Nurses’ Health Study shows that among all fruits and vegetables when studied for their flavonoid content, apples and pears had the most consistent ability to lower diabetes risk.

Phytonutrients are where pears really stand out. The Baltimore Longitudinal Study on Aging with over 1600 people ages 62-69 years has shown apple/pear combo to have the second highest level of flavonols of all fruits and vegetables. This provides us with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Jay calls his Pear-Apple combo the Evening Regulator because pears and apples contain large amounts of pectin to keep your digestive system moving. Here’s the recipe:
1- Pear
2- Apples

Watch Jay make this great tasting combo:

 

Jay’s Holiday Dozen Day Five Cabbage Carrot Celery

This is Day Five of 12 consecutive posts with Jay demonstrating how to make each juice recipe. Also included is nutrition and research information to compliment Jay’s choice of fruit and/or vegetable drinks.  Happy Holidays from all of us at JayKordich.com

Day Five –  Cabbage Carrot Celery

Most of the time those of us involved in promoting natural foods are prohibited from using the word Cure.  This is one of those times where it’s entirely appropriate and accurate to talk about curing ulcers by simply drinking freshly made cabbage juice. We have the published, peer reviewed scientific study to back it up.

In fact Jay himself, assisting Dr. Garnett Cheney in 1949 at Stanford University Medical School Cancer Division, treated patients by having them drink freshly made cabbage juice. Out of 65 patients in the study, 63 were healed and the remaining two patients had minimal symptoms as a result.

Recently we asked Jay to recall that time many years ago and tell us how it all transpired. The video below is Jay in his own words.

Download your own copy of the original Stanford University Medical Center study by Dr. Garnett Cheney. Click on this link or the study photo on the right to download a PDF version.

RECIPE:
- About 1/3 of the glass for each, cabbage, carrot, celery.
- If you are using this combination to get serious about a stomach problem you should try for a larger percentage of cabbage to carrot and celery, say about 50% cabbage.

An excellent quality juice machine is also recommended. Fortunately we can suggest Jay’s own PowerGrind Pro for the job! Here’s Jay to make Cabbage Carrot Celery juice
