Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes

Collard greens have a similar nutritional profile to that juicing superstar, kale, but they produce significantly more juice, making them not only supremely healthy but also supremely economical. This mix, enhanced by the detoxifying boost of cilantro, has a delicious sweet-spicy kick.


  • 2 collard green leaves
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1 1/2 medium green apples
  • 3 medium carrots
  • 1/4 medium cucumber
  • 1 inch fresh gingerroot, peeled


Juice the ingredients in the order listed according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Serve immediately.
