Martha's Favorite Green Juice


You should make this every morning—Martha does.


Martha drinks this immune-boosting cocktail of nutritious fruits and vegetables every morning. She has honed her formula with practice, and this is her absolute favorite combination. One whole pear brings sweetness and juiciness (Anjou is Martha's preferred variety), English cucumbers add freshness (and don't require peeling like some other types), and celery stalks and flat-leaf parsley ensure depth of flavor and an attractive green color. Fresh ginger offers a wonderful aroma and gives the juice a pep, but perhaps the most surprising addition is the two orange wedges, rinds left on.

If you don't have these exact ingredients on hand, don't fret: Martha says you should still make a version of this green juice, since her recipe allows for plenty of substitutions. Don't have pears on hand? Add an apple, instead. There are no leafy greens in Martha’s formula, but if you have some fresh spinach or kale that needs to get used up, toss it in. With this vibrant and versatile recipe, you can't go wrong—and it's never been easier to drink your greens.
