Mojito Green Juice

mojito green juice beverage recipe

Beat the summer heat with this refreshingly healthy green drink.

I have a new favorite green juice recipe. Although I’ve never done a full on green juice diet or green juice detox, I think that green juice has major benefits and drink it several days every week. I feel so healthy when I get a big bowl of vegetables into my diet, in liquid form, in addition to the veggies I eat all day long.

I found a mojito green juice recipe over on one of my favorite websites, Dr. Frank Lipman. The recipe on his site calls for spinach, I’ve changed it up a bit by using parsley instead. Whichever way you make it, I think you’ll find this green juice completely refreshing, and you’ll feel wonderful after you drink it.

Mojito Green Juiceprint

  • 1 small bunch mint
  • 1 small bunch parsley
  • 1 lime
  • ½ inch fresh ginger
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 green apple
  1. Push mint, parsley, lime, ginger, cucumbers, and apple through a juicer
  2. Serve

While I used to have a Green Star juicer, I found that it took quite a long time to push the vegetables through and even longer to clean it. I recently switched over to this Breville juicer and am absolutely in love with it. It’s so easy to use that I juice several times per week, even when I’m on the go.

Here are some of my other favorite juice recipes:

    Elana thank your for this yummy one I cant wait for. I’ve been adding kale to my protein powder in my Vitamix and never had a juicer. Does anyone know if juicing or Vitamix is a healthier version to drink?

    What speed do you juice the greens – parsley etc on? Thanks

    Love these recipes, thank you! I don’t have a juicer so I just put the ingredients in my blender with some water and 1-2 ice cubes, blend up and drink down.

  4. This looks so refreshing–we’re having a hot day here and I am almost salivating thinking about some cold green juice!

    Your photography is beautiful. I tried taking a picture of a green juice one time, and it was awful. Hats off to you!

  6. Wow, looks delicious. I can’t decide between this one and citrus-smash, probably I try out both…

  7. Looks delicious! I don’t have a juicer either so I’ll be using a blender. I guess it will retain more of the good stuff :-)

    Wow, that mojito looks so tasty!!!

    I saved this recipe until I had time to try it. This morning I decided that I would like to make juice. Fortunately between my fridge and garden, I had everything for this recipe, except that my apple wasn’t green. It’s a very nice, refreshing drink!

    Do you peel the lime or just toss it in?
