Stripped Green Juice

Stripped Green Juice | nutritionstripped.com You’re all familiar with the Stripped Green Smoothie by now, and if you’re not, what are you waiting for? I share all things green smoothies and why I adore the signature smoothie of Nutrition Stripped. Today I want to focus on drinking something else that’s green, the Stripped Green Juice! Oh yes, get ready for another veggie filled elixir to try out. In my previous post, we discussed all things Juicing 101 so I thought it was perfect timing to introduce you to something else I eat/drink on a weekly basis.

I get it, drinking something green isn’t necessarily the “norm” in our society, but drinking your greens whether in a smoothie or juice has been the buzz for quite some time, especially around New Years, for good reason. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are nutrient dense in comparison to any breakfast cereal out there, which is a Standard American Diet (SAD) meal in the morning; and they’re loaded with fiber (again something that’s lacking in our SAD diets).

So what’s in the Stripped Green Juice? In this green juice you’ll find some pretty amazing ingredients all are delicious, nourishing, and supportive in helping your body’s natural and ongoing detoxification. I’ve had so many of you personally email me, Facebook message me, or write on Instragram asking me questions about juicing recipes and thought it was an awesome idea to start sharing some of my personal juicing recipes I use on a daily/weekly basis and also a few from my client programs.

Think of juices as being a powerhouse of nutrition in a very small volume. Essentially you’re taking all of the nutrients found in fresh fruits and vegetables and reducing it down to pure liquid. Let’s take the ingredients in this juice for example, there are about 15-17 servings of fruits and vegetables reduced to several cups of juice! Of course this is not the same as eating these fruits and vegetables because it’s lacking the fiber, but nonetheless the nutrients are there.

Stripped Green Juice is a variation on my Stripped Green Smoothie, it incorporates many of the same ingredients I use in the smoothie just in juice form. I also add in some of my favorite flavors and boosts of nutrients in some fruits that I don’t always use in my smoothie recipe.

    Hi McKee!

    This sounds incredible! I’m going to make it just as soon as I get done typing my comment! One of my fave green juices is as follows:
    6 kale leaves
    1 lemon or lime
    1/2 head of cabbage
    1 inch ginger
    1 cucumber
    1 pear
    1 carrot

    Thank you for the exciting new recipe!

    Xo Kathleen

    I don’t have a juicer yet. I couldn’t wait to try this so I blended it in the blend tech and strained it through cheese cloth and it was amazing! Best Juice EVER!!!!

  3. Nicole says

    Hi McKel,

    I was wondering why the juice needs to be consumed in 24-48 hours if the veggies would stay fresh in the fridge for 7-10 days? Just curious because I prefer to juice in batches due to my busy schedule.

    Thanks :)

    Just catching up on your blog – I’d love to know if you have any recommendations on juices for skin health! Thanks so much, really enjoy reading your site!

    Hi McKel, I have a couple of questions.
    1) I have Lyme disease. So immunity is a question I want to ask you about.
    (How to boost)
    2) I’m on large amounts of doxycycline.
    a. How does it affect my skin? Seems dryer than usual. Flaky & dry. Skin actually flakes off. Kind of like when I scratch it from itching, and they’re little flakes like dandruff. Dandruff around the eye brows, eyelashes & hairline. Also the sides of cheeks.
    I cleanse with the Clarasonic MIA Spin brush using good non soap cleansers. The cleanser that
    came with MIA, was a gel type clear cleanser w/o soap. ( I loved it, noticed
    big difference right away) I noticed one of the ing. was willow bark. After running
    out, looked for a replacement; Clarosonic changed theirs – first tried
    Garniers :
    “Radiance Renewed, cleansing glee, for
    dull skin, cushion gel technology, w/citric extract+, hydroxy acid.
    It was okay.
    Then found Nutragena naturalist
    purifying facial cleanser, with Willow
    bark! No harsh charms, sulfate, parabens, petrochems, dyes or
    phthalate s.
    They also make a cream cleanser w/ Peruvian Tara seed. I’ve tried.
    And a Purifying pore scrub. I’ve tried as well.
    Do you have any input on skin nutrition?
    Any thoughts about the product s I’m
    using?
    I’ve noticed my facial pores are large. And predominate… is that due to
    antibiotics? And/or nutrition?
    I bought Cliniques pore tightening serum at the same time I bought the Clarosonic. I really noticed a great change in my skin the first day. I loved it so much. I had never noticed a change for the better so much other than when I first used Reviva’s night cream with DMAE, C-ester, AHA ? or ALA ?
    Best facial cream ever!!! Worked overnight!!! Have run out.
    b. Affect my hair and nails? My hair used to be very shiny, not now. My nails
    have always been strong, now they are splitting -peeling off. Dry and chipping for the first time in my life.
    time ever in my life.
    What food/nutrients do you recommend for skin, hair and nails?
    I drink whey protein powder with yogurt and coconut milk, frozen strawberry, blueberries, cinnamon (for metabolism)
    Green bananas (I was told the more ripe the higher the glycemic).
    I blend in my blender. I just bought some green powder to get the chlorophyll and spirulinas etc.
    I also just bought a nutrabullet to make green drink with. I’m just too afraid to use it. ( It’s a Lyme disease thing )
    I have cucumber and Apple, spinach and kale. I even bought the cilantro.
    I have flaxseed and Chia.
    I eat a lot of quinoa and vegetables.
    And take 2 robotics.
    I have been tall and thin, lanky my whole life.
    Suddenly, I gained 60 lbs. In 2 months.
    and it won’t change.
    One big question I have for you is,
    My first Lyme literate M.D. said that I could drink wine for the physical pain. So I don’t have to take pain meds.
    My new Lyme M.D. gave me a bunch of paper protocol to read. And I saw it say: No alcohol.
    ????? What do you think?
    Could wine make my pores enlarge?
    Can wine affect my antibiotics?
    Affect my weight?
    Hair?
    It’s a known fact that the Doxycycline Drys out your skin and nails.
    I’ve heard that I am most likely carrying water weight. I don’t eat much. I have to be hungry to eat. I haven’t touched sodas, sweets or processed foods for 2 or more years. I was a vegan for 5 years. Never felt better.
    Now I’m ill. Living with a non vegan although he likes to eat healthy and junk. So. Im stuck with eating my healthy food or nothing.
    Also, I fought off endometriosis through my 20’s-40’s. Was on BCP’s for every single day non stop x 4 years.
    Once when I was 24 I stopped my BCP’S & I gained 15 lbs. In one week.
    I was young and went on this powder diet with no sugar not even a tomato.
    Just the powder supplement and lettuce. My modeling agents put me on it.
    I lost the weight no problem.
    Then, when I was 29 my gyn put me on Lupron, to close down my hormones, which put me in immediate menopause. I gained a shocking 30 to 45 pounds. Again I worked very hard and lost the
    weight.
    my question is this, after taking the birth control pills for a few decades and then being on them for a daily basis for many years then they took me off the birth control pills and I had heavy heavy bleeding, I was also told that I had uterine fibroid tumors. Then after the heavy flow for a couple of weeks, it seems like that was when I gained a tremendous amount of weight for no apparent reason 75 pounds in 2 months or less.I am very frustrated because I eat healthy. I have been thin and in shape my whole life. I have worked out. I don’t see where this weight is coming from.
    I would love to get your take on this.
    I want to start my green drink s.
    My new Lyme M.D. said that I should have more veggies and less fruit.
    Maybe my smoothies have been too high in sugar grams?
    Thank you for your thoughts and input.
    Besides being miserable from Lyme.
    I have been miserable from sudden weight gain longer.
    Yours truly, BG

      Hi Carolyn,
      Thank you for your kind words! This is something I would only answer via a personal one-on-one consultation as it’s in depth. Please contact me via the services page and make a reservation and we’ll chat about all your questions!

  6. Bianca says

    This recipe sounds like a winner and I can’t wait to try it! Thanks so much for posting. By any chance though, do you have the grams of each ingredient? It’s hard to judge how much “a bunch” is and the lettuces we get may be smaller than yours. Just checking before I experiment :) thank you!

    • says

      Hi Biana,
      Thank you so much! The reason I use bunch or loose guidelines with greens as it depends on everyones taste preferences. I use a lot of greens, but if you’re just starting out keep it to a handful and adjust or increase as you enjoy the taste :)

  7. says

    Hi McKel!
    I’m allergic to pitted tree fruits (apples, pears, etc.), so I always have trouble with green juice! I know that I can just use cucumber or celery… but I would imagine that having an apple would make it so much tastier! Do you have any replacements for the apple in this recipe that you would recommend?
