Do you know arugula plant? I read that it’s healthy but prepared a green juice with it and it tasted really odd. What do you include in a delicious and healthy green juice? Do you think that drink or everyday is good?

Arugula has a peppery flavour. It can be viewed a s bitter by some people too. Try spinach or another green as an alternative. Same health benefits but without the distinct flavour.

I put some apple, kiwi and parsley in my juice. It tastes really good and I highly recommend it. But I don’t drink it every day, because it takes time to prepare and unfortunately I don’t have that time every day. Maybe once a week is a great start.

I don't know the plant actually but I use spirulina and turmeric which also habe specific and stront tastes so I add banana and apple most of the time for some sweet and sour to mask other tastes. You can also try adding oat or rice milk te add creamyness and help to blend and soften the tastes a little more. Hope this helps 🙂

Google this recipe from the New York Times: Green Smoothie With Pineapple, Arugula, Greens and Cashews.
It is great to drink green juice everyday but you need to use recipes to find out what do you like.

I think that cucumber really opens up a lot of possibilities. It has a subtle flavor and offsets more dense vegetables without adding water. Spinach is a staple for me. Frozen beet cubes is my secret ingredient.
Myrtle O.
Maybe banana or strawberries? My opinion is that a veggie or fruit juice a few times a week is fine but i think it is better to eat veggies and fruit as a whole

I have not tried arugula, but I suspect it would be bitter. I find spinach grinds up really well in a smoothie and doesn't have much of a taste. I have also used kale (smaller tender pieces) and Swiss chard.

My favourite smoothie is tropical (banana /mango /pineapple) with spinach, lactose free yogurt, coconut milk, and flax seed meal.

If I were you I wouldn’t add any sugar or unhealthy ingredients. I would probably put banana, mango, or pineapple in it .

Arugula is pretty bitter. It's great in a salad but probably not very tasty in a drink. I would try spinach instead. It blends fairly easily and has a mild taste.

For my green juice, I use 1/2 cup of Kale, 1/4 cup of carrots, 1/4 cup of strawberries, 1/4 cup of blueberries, 1 banana, apple juice, almond milk and water. Blend and enjoy 🙂

I did not know the arugula plant, but it made me curious so I looked it up. I found a website that said this… ”The pungent flavor of arugula is due to its high content of sulfur containing compounds known as glucosinolates.” What I usually put in my juices is Cale or spinach and some fruits, Mostly berries. I like a variety of juices for a quick breakfast so I would not recommend this for everyday.🙂

Arugula is best in a salad with bacon, apple, and walnuts. I would not drink a juice from it at gunpoint. For a daily green juice, parsley will be a much better choice.

From what I’ve read smoothies that include the whole leaf are better for you than the strained juice. There are so many books out there with lots of info about green juice and why it’s a good idea to switch up the greens you use, I recommend doing research before you take on a daily green juice in your diet made from one specific green.

I work at a restaurant that focuses on healthy food, we have a green smoothie that has spinach, parsley, pineapple, and ginger. Super tasty!

I use spinach and lots of honey and fruits. Green plants by themselves don't taste good, so you really need to hide the flavor with fruit, peanut butter, protein powder, or something else. I stopped doing these drinks and just added more veggies to my later meals.

I think arugula is a bit too peppery for smoothies. Kale and spinach are milder-flavoured and will meld better with a smoothie than arugula.

Add a sweet fruit like apples, pears or pineapples. That should make any odd taste go away or become less visible.
You dont have to drink it everyday. Listen to your body, it will tell you what it needs. Eggs are excellent too, remember to get free range eggs always.

I don’t use green drinks, although I have no objection to them. I prefer my greens in a salad. I love a handful of arugula added to a salad. It gives a fresh, peppery taste. Arugula alone is too strong for my palate, but makes a delicious addition to a variety of green salads.
As for smoothie beverages, I prefer fruit (bananas, cherries, strawberries or other berries) with plain non-fat Greek yogurt and soy milk. I often add some protein powder and chia seeds.

No i dont know it but as much as i know about green plants have alot of vitamin c which is a powerful antioxidant
By having it in your breakfast will release all the toxins and have a fabulous morning

Adding apples is a great way to round out the taste of greens. Pears are also a sweet addition to offset the earthy flavor of some of the intense greens.
Carl S.
I can’t have arugula anymore 🥺. I have to stay away from dark leafy green and I love an arugula and steak sandwich or arugula in a good salad. Makes all the difference in the world!
Birgit F.
Yes we use it by a different name where I am. Im never gotten into green juice because i dont own a blender which is sad. Its something that i would like to get into it someday
Maiara C.
Actually I haven’t heard about arugula plant before. How did you find it useful?
Also I haven’t got a habit preparing healthy green juice. What would you advice to start doing it?
Georgia O.
Arugula has a strong taste so you might want to balance it with a splash of pineapple juice… also spinach has similar leafy green benefits but a less overpowering flavor
Lise C.
Add some fruits like Apple, pineapple, berries or melons in your green juice. Sometimes I put trader Joe's green juice powder, also improve the taste with lemon and honey. Drinking it everyday is good. I usually drink in the morning.

The arugula plant is overall a pretty unique and healthy addition to your diet. Studies show that it can improve muscle oxygenation during exercise, decreases the risk of obesity, promote complexion and even give you more energy.

It also may have tasted funny in a drink because of its naturally strong flavor. It’s also more of an acquired taste. However, it is best paired with something else just as strong in flavor, such as any sort of citrus, beets or any dried fruit like cranberry or cherry.

Yes, arugula is even benificual if eaten everyday, but make sure you wash it! Any leafy green like cabbage or kale, is likely washed with dirty water or contaminated with unwashed hands. Both of which can cause food poisoning. Make sure to use separate cutting boards, as well as knives.
