Green Apple Pie Juice: Day 13

Green Apple Pie Juice: Day 13

Did you know that you could juice broccoli? I first learned about it when I read Lindsay Loves Veggie’s post on Broccoli Stem Green Juice. I was so excited about it that I begged her to submit her recipe to Raw Foods Thursdays and then highlighted her recipe the following week.

Juice from broccoli stems!

Broccoli and I  have an interesting relationship. I love broccoli that’s steamed, drizzled with a little olive oil, garlic, lemon combination, and served al dente. But how often can one enjoy such broccoli perfection? It’s usually served over cooked, mushy, a brownish-grey color, or cold. Shudder. But once in a while it’s prepared perfectly, and it’s so good that the very next day I purchase a head of broccoli, determined to recreate the perfect steamed broccoli.

The broccoli sits in a bag in my produce drawer.

And it sits.

And sits.

Until it’s barely usable, I chop off a few florets for a salad, and throw the stems away.


I still rarely steam broccoli, but right now I’m enjoying fresh broccoli, stem and florets, juiced in this Green Apple Pie Juice.

    Love it, Heather! Great juice recipe. What a fabulous green color too. And what a great way to get in raw broccoli.


  2. Heather says:

    I hate cooked broccoli. I’m ok with raw if it is minced up fine. I’ve never tried juicing it because I wouldn’t like it if it tasted like broccoli. Does it have a strong taste or does it disappear like zucchini?

  3. huh never would have thought to juice broccoli! very cool!

  4. Mmm this juice sounds wonderfully refreshing!
    I am not a big fan of raw broccoli, but love it lightly steamed with a bit of lemon juice & dulse flakes on it.

    I have never ever even thought about juicing broccoli. Now I’m intrigued. And how can you go wrong with apple pie juice?

  6. Kathy says:

    We discovered we had an over abundance of raw broccoli (a deal we couldn’t pass up)so guess what we decided to do with it? Though we’ve been juicing daily for weeks, tomorrow we start a detox juice fast (10 days minimum). Perhaps I’ll start with this recipe! Thanks Heather!

  7. I’m very inspired! This flavor combo sounds delish. Who doesn’t love apple pie?! :)

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, fitness fanatic, gluten-free foodie, high-raw vegan, and Mama Cat living in NYC. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. While I'm not 100% vegan, it's my favorite way to eat, and making and sharing raw foods makes me giddy. Living in the City has its joys and challenges, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with you.
