Naked Juice Green Machine (Copycat)

naked juice copycat

I love Naked Juice green machine and have enjoyed it for years! So I’m very excited to share with you my yummy, home version. It tastes fantastic! Since I created it, my husband and I have enjoyed it every day! It’s such a healthy and amazingly delicious way to fill up on both fruits and veggies. Each serving has 137 calories, 0 fat and 6 Blue WW Freestyle SmartPoints, and 6 Green. My recipe is a brighter green drink. Kids love it! What a great, breakfast or snack on the run!!!

Prep Time: 10 minutes


Ingredients

2 cups apples, peeled, seeds and core removed, cut into chunks.

¾ cup (6-ounce can) pineapple juice, chilled 

½ cup frozen mango, not defrosted (use could use fresh if desired. 

¾ cup broccoli, florets

¾ cup fresh spinach, lightly packed

¾ cup kale, lightly packed

1 small kiwi, peeled and sliced

½ small banana

¼ cup apple juice or more pineapple juice, optional (if you want this drink a little thinner)


Instructions

1. In a blender, add apples, pineapple juice, mango, and broccoli. Blend on highest setting until smooth. Add spinach, kale, kiwi, and banana. Continue to blend on the highest setting until smooth. This drink is quite thick. I love it that way! If desired, add a little more pineapple or apple juice to make it thinner. 

2. Store in the refrigerator. It will keep for several days. Mix together again before serving.

Makes 3 cups total (each serving 1 cup)


Shopping Tips
I love my Oster Blender. I bought it at Target.com for $39.00. It’s such a good deal and is powerful enough to blend everything in this drink. Click here to see it: target.com

Comments

  1. What apples did you use? My non verbal son loves it, and has been drinking it for years too, he is 6 now.. excited to make my own.. what about adding spurlina? Thank you! Wendy

  2. What apples did you use for recipe? I love this drink and so does my non verbal so, it’s been expensive buying it!

  3. Wendy I usually use organic Gala or Fuji and when available, Envy.
    I think you’ll really enjoy my copy-cat recipe!

  4. It’s such a healthy drink. Whenever I serve mine to kids, they love it. I hope your son does too.
    Wendy, I’ve never added spirulina to mine.

  5. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed this, Kimra! As far as the graininess, maybe your blender isn’t powerful enough. You don’t need an expensive one either. Mine is an Oster but it’s quite powerful. Or, try to blend it longer. You can even add a few tablespoons of water to help blend it.
    Best of luck!

  6. The cystine levels in this drink coupled with whipping cream for fat literally helps to reduce my son’s neurological issues!!!! He has autism. The broccoli, kale, and spinach are all full of cysteine and thyroid friendly nutrients. The fatty acids found in the mangos (ALA) and such help with brain function. It helps me tremendously with the MTHFR issues.

  7. Very tasty. I’m starting off the new year with eating and drinking better. The only I issue I have with this is the texture. I actually took the time to add more juice and run it through a cheese cloth lol. I do not like pulp at all. I know I’m a big baby. But the flavor is very good.

  8. You are right about the thickness, Stacy. That’s what I love about it. But I understand if you don’t like pulp.
    Sorry!
    My best,
    Nancy
