DON’T GIVE UP!!!!!! Start small and work your way up! Add sweet fruits like green apples and pears and certainly stay away from foods you don’t like in the beginning. Also – make sure you are cleaning you your veggies really well. Nothing worse than having dirty tasting juice blah :/

On of my favorites that DH will actually drink (which is rare) = 2 pears, 1 green apple, handful of kale, handful of spinach, little bit of wheatgrass and ginger for taste. I’m a huge fan of kale and spinach with cucumber too but it’s not for everyone.

If you think that’s too much you can always start VERY small – thats how I got DH to drink juice. Take Green Apples and a teeny bit of spinach or kale and gradually add more.

Ginger, honey, cinnamon, and mint!  I add one or more of those usually.  Or a banana, maple syrup.

If you look at the ‘Green Goodness’ or other smoothie drinks at the supermarket, they include fruits in their drinks that probably helps.  I think they’re delicious, but they’re full of preservatives and other not nice things, so I don’t drink them, but peek at their ingredients next time you’re at the store for ideas!  I know they use broccoli, spinach, kale, green apples, kiwi and every other green thing imaginable in their drinks.  Apples and carrots make delicious juice, so maybe if you can add some of them for flavor, you’ll like it more?

I second the idea of adding fruit 🙂 makes green juice taste sooo much better, especially when you’re not used to it. My fave combo is banana and parsley. It sounds so weird, but I think they compliment each other 🙂

try working a green apple or pear into it… it will help tremendously.

I juice:

  • 2-3 stalks of kale
  • 3-4 romaine leaves
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 1/2 inch of ginger root
  • 1 broccoli stem
  • 1-2 apples or pears
  • 1/2 a peeled lemon

even my veggie hating husband likes this!
