Introduction: Slime Juice

I know it sounds very appetizing, but that's what my boyfriend calls it. The name kinda stuck. Despite the name, however, it does taste delicious and of course it's super healthy.

The down side to this recipe is that you need a juicer. I love my juicer and really should use it more for the amount of money I paid for it. 

Step 1: Ingrediants

1. Spinach and lots of it. I used 11 ounces

2. One cucumber

3. Three kiwis

4. Handful of strawberries

5. Four stalks of celery

6. Four or five pieces of broccoli 

Apples are a welcome addition to the mix. I unfortunately was out of them. i'd use about 3 small to medium sized apples.

Step 2: Prep

When working with veggies and fruits make sure they are fully rinsed. Trim the ends off the celery and cucumber. Peel the kiwi and remove the tops of the strawberries. 

Make sure you fully understand how your juicer works. Some juicers require different speeds for different veggies and fruits. 

Step 3: Juicing and Tips

Time to juice! Doesn't matter what order you juice the veggies and fruits. They all get mixed together in the end. 

To get as much juice as possible out of spinach you'll need to bunch the leaves into tight bundles before putting it in the shoot of the juicer. You won't get much juice out, but this will help get the most. 

Making juice can make a mess. To help with the clean up put a plastic bag in the pulp receptacle if you're able to. 


Step 4: Enjoy!

Now yo have a glass of pure healthy goodness. Drink up to your health!

It looks like it makes a lot! About how many ounces does it make and how well does the extra keep? I make something similar with some frozen fruit+banana+a full blender of spinach it's so yummy! But since it's a smoothie it usually doesn't keep super well.

The container that comes with the juicer holds about 32 oz. I keep it in the fridge a couple days, but I'm not sure how long it will last since it's usually gone by the next day.

What kind of juicer? It looks like a Breville? Model? If so, how does it do on the broccoli and spinach? I ask because I have an el cheapo Black and Decker that doesn't do very well with much of the leafy green stuff and I want to ensure I make a better investment. Thanks!

You are right. It's a Breville. I got the Fountain Juicer Plus. I love it. I'm surprised at how much came out of the broccoli, but it wasn't a ton of juice since broccoli doesn't have a ton of liquid in it. As long as you make tight bunches out of the spinach, it gets a good amount out, at least a better amount than other juicers I've seen. However the spinach pulp is still very soggy. You can squeeze more juice out of the pulp with your hands actually. hopes that's helpful.

Just a follow-up...prompted the spouse to get me a Breville for my birthday. Great success!

I was calling alien spew, but I thought slime juice had a better ring to it when my boyfriend first tried it. It use to gross out my friends in college when I brought it to class.

That looks really tasty. I would add spirulina too! More green and super energy boost!
