Five years ago, our family moved across the country from suburban California to the country in North Carolina in search of a lifestyle change. I started this blog to share my passion for family, farm animals, home decorating, crafts, DIYs, recipes, gardening, and so much more. I’m happy you’ve joined me here!
Y’all, the garden is growing like gangbusters! (Side note: What is a gangbuster!?) Anyway, the garden is thriving and lately we’ve had more kale than we know what to do with. Sure we’ve made kale chips and kale salad, but we wanted to try something different.
Turns out our daughter has a hidden talent we recently discovered. She’s a great juicer! This girl loves her smoothies and juices. After helping me harvest kale one day, she said, “Mom, we should try making green juice with the kale.” Say no more, we were off to the kitchen!
All you need is five simple ingredients to make this delicious juice. It’s best served chilled. You can also pour it in ice cube trays and freeze them to add delicious cubes of flavor to mixed drinks or elevate your water on a warm day. Kids will love this juice frozen as popsicles and it’s a great way for them to get their greens too.
Sophia and I hope you love this juice as much as we do. Enjoy!

What do you do when you're stuck at home and your garden is producing an abundance of kale? You create a green juice recipe and call it The Quarantine Quencher. With the help of our daughter and her love for juicing, she and I came up with an easy and delicious green juice recipe. It's a great base recipe leaving room for lots of yummy experimenting.
1 bunch of kale
3 Granny Smith apples
1 inch fresh ginger root
2 stalks of celery
Juice the kale, celery, and pinapple on low.
Swith your juicer to the high setting and juice the ginger root and apples.
Refrigerate. (Best served cold)
Before serving, stir the juice as it tends to separate in the fridge.
This is a great baseline recipe. We've also added clementines and carrots which have been delicious. You can pour the juice into ice cube trays and freeze them. Use the cubes in mixed drinks or to elevate water. You can also freeze the juice to make popsicles on a warm summer day.
