Mixed Fruit and Vegetable Juice Using Kale, Carrot, Blueberry, Pear, and Apple

I usually buy whole fruit instead of precut ones whenever possible. However, when making smaller portion juice, sometimes the already-prepped assorted fruits sold at the market can be a real helper. 

There's only peeled and cubed pears the time I went grocery shopping, so I got some of that. Along the way I've also picked up other ingredients which I think should pair with pears in a tasty and nutritious way.

Mixed fruit and vegetable juice

Ingredients (about 2 to 3 glasses)?

  • 2 loosely packed cups kale
  • 1 loosely packed cup peeled and cubed carrot
  • 1 loosely packed cup blueberries
  • 2 1/2 loosely packed cups peeled and cubed pear
  • 1 1/2 loosely packed cups peeled and cubed apple
  • 2 cups icy cold water


Prep all the fruits, such as peel the carrot, apple, and pear if needed then cube them for easier blending. 

Ingredients for mixed fruit and vegetable juice

Add all the listed ingredients to a blender. However, if the blender can't hold as much, simply split these ingredients in half and blend separately. You can combine the blended batches to a big pitcher in the end. 

Blend the juice till smooth while still seeing tiny bits throughout. Pour and serve right away.

Because of oxidation, my super fresh juice started to turn brown soon after I pour it out from the blender. But the taste was still crisp and great. Use one more cup of icy cold water for a thinner consistency, or use one more cup of icy cold water plus one more apple for bigger servings.

I would highly recommend not to strain the juice for its maximum benefit. It's a shame if all these nutritious bits are going to waste.
