Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosalie from Delicious detox This is a wonderful, simple recipe. I generally switch out the kale for a baby greens mix, and de-seed the cucumber prior to adding it. I also don't strain it so it ends up more of a smoothie consistency, but I'm in love with this recipe! Other variations: swapping a banana for the second apple, and kiwi instead of celery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunny8a from Tasty after a little tweaking I made this juice following the instructions and discovered it needed more sweetness to offset the strong flavors of the greens. I decided to add one cup red grapes and one cup green grapes and Voilà! Perfectly delicious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaybo from Yummmmm!!! I am so happy I took the plunge and purchased a Vitamix For the last week I have been making all kinds of delicious health dips, soups and smoothies. This Green recipe I just had and It was great! I only sifted it because my milk bag has not arrived yet. I am ok though because all it means is I consumed more fiber which is what I need for healthy digestion. I am a happy camper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by smoothies4alex from great with lemon I didn't have celery on hand, but used the other ingredients listed. After tasting, my fiancé and I agreed that a lemon juice would add some much needed tartness. Just a quick squeeze was enough to take this drink to another level.

Is it okay to have more than one of the green drinks a day
This is different for everyone, you may want to ask your health care professional about their recommended intake of green drinks for your diet.

Do you need to peel the cucumber & ginger?
The peel on the cucumber should not change the flavor profile too much so it would be okay to leave the peel on. With the ginger root it is suggested to peel this, if leaving whole you will find it adds a gritty texture to the juice and can have a bit of an earthy flavor.

For those of us who are trying to do carb free, what option to any of these recipes can we do.
Cindy, these are healthy whole food drinks that contain natural carbohydrates. There are no complex carbohydrates or anything that has been processed. I do not know the reasoning behind your carb free diet but would recommend working with a dietitian so that you can manage your diet properly.

Is it curly kale you add to the smoothie? Thank you
Any Kale will do. Curly kale has a bold flavor, Baby kale has a milder flavor. So pick one you enjoy and blend away.

What fruit can you substitute the apple with if you are allergic to them or to similar fruits?
Pears are a good substitute for apples.

After blending the ingredients, do we have seperate the juice from the pulp using a filtration bag, or can we drink it the way it is?
you dont have to separate it... It just wont taste like a juice. It will taste thick like a smoothie & you might get chunks of whatever wasnt blended all the way out.
