Green Energy Punch [Juice Recipe]
Last updated on
This high-energy juice packs plenty of healthy complex carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in one delicious punch!
You want to whip up something that is tasty, full of healthy vitamins and minerals, and super easy to prep and clean? Okay, got it- this one fits the bill!
Meet our juicer review stand-by: Green Energy Punch! This easy-peasy recipe is delicious, healthy, and just sweet enough to be satisfying without also being loaded full of sugars.
We used an Omega VRT330 vertical juicer for this recipe, but it’ll work well with any masticating juicer. The pulp in the pear, apple, and celery can create a fair bit of foam in centrifugal juicers, so we recommend using masticating instead.

Note that the above calorie count includes dietary fiber, most of which is removed during the juicing process.
This recipe is rich in antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin K.
Specific preparation requirements vary based on your juicer. If your juicer has a larger feeding tube then you won’t need to cut the fruits down as much.
Prep takes about two minutes (or less). In general, you’ll want to:
- Wash all ingredients with cool water (give them a good rinse to remove any dirt, chemical/pesticides/etc.)
- Cut the pear and apples into fifths or sixths
- Cut the cucumber in half (length wide)
- Leave the celery as-is
Step by Step Instructions (With Pictures)
Step One: Rinse Your Fruits & Vegetables
Most people do this as a matter of habit, but if you aren’t one of them, may we suggest that this is a habit you pick up!
Rinsing your fruits and vegetables wash away dirt, dust, and other gunk that may be on the vegetables. Not to mention any chemicals used during production/transportation, such as pesticides and herbicides (among others).
Step Two: Slice Your Fruits & Vegetables
You’ll want to ensure your ingredients fit your specific juicer. The notes below are a guide, but be sure to tailor as needed to fit your equipment.
We recommend cutting your fruit into fifths or sixths, and your celery into halves (lengthwise). You can cut your celery up into quarters and then small strips (as we did for the above photo), but this step isn’t necessary for most juicers.
Step Three: Juice!
Each juicer is a little different so be sure to follow the instructions and best-practices called out in your owners manual. For the Omega VRT330 we’re using here, that means letting the juicer run for about 10 seconds prior to beginning juicing.
Step Four: Enjoy!
This recipe makes about 280ml of juice, which is about 9.5oz.
The flavor is slightly tangy and refreshing, with the green apple and pear providing a bit of tartness and sweetness to the overall flavor. It is not excessively sweet- perfect for an early morning jump-start or a mid-day boost!
