Today, I’m going to introduce the single-one thing that had the BIGGEST impact on my ability to CRUSH a life-long addiction to sugar!
This is one of my favorite green juice recipes that will help you detox and alkalize your body quickly.
On Thursday, I’ll send you another way to get your greens on that happens to be frequently confused with gluten, so stay tuned to find out what that is.
Now, in order to make to today’s recipe, you do need a good juice machine, but I’ve found that it’s worth the investment because green juices are a great way to hydrate and consume a lot of vitamins, phytonutrients, and minerals quickly and easily.
This is one of those products where you get what you pay for. There are a lot of less expensive juicers out there, but there is going to be some degradation in the juice to begin with and therefore, the juice won’t last as long. It’s going to be something that you have to drink right away.
Here are the cold-press juicers I recommend:
- The Hurom is the one we use at home, and is top of the charts as a single gear slow-press masticating juicer. It can be purchased at a Bed, Bath & Beyond or Williams-Sonoma.
- A Kuvings is another great one because it has a wide mouth at the top and you can actually fit larger pieces in it (that is the one downside of the Hurom, as the chute is slightly smaller).
- Then there are the centrifuge juicers, such as the Breville, Jack LaLanne, Fusion, etc. These are easier to use, and easier to clean. The only downside is that the produce does get heated which can cause some degradation, but is that really an issue for you to be concerned about? I don’t think so.
So whenever someone asks me, “Which is the best juicer?”, my answer is always the same – the one that you are going to use!
I can’t tell you how many people I know were excited to juice, bought a juicier, for it only to sit on the counter collecting dust after the honeymoon phase was over. So if this means you buy a centrifuge juicer because it’s faster and easier to clean, then by all means go for it!
So give this juice a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.

Dr. Daryl Tip: Add 1 tbsp. of chia to all green juices when drinking, it will give you even more energy, neutralize any sugars in the greens or fruit, and help your digestive system.
