Dandelion Green Juice

Dandelion Green Juice | So...Let's Hang Out

Hello, Spring. You snuck up on me. I think I blinked and you showed up with your blue skies and your green hills and your different shades of wildflowers. I am totally not complaining. Look at the glorious view from our hike this weekend. It feels nice to have sunshine on my pale and wintered shoulders. Thank you for the tan lines. I can now pass as someone who spends time outside. I no longer look like that kid from The Secret Garden who was not allowed to leave his room. Cheers. You’re a good friend.

So...Let's Hang OutBesides tanned shoulders, I also got a wicked case of spring allergies. I always forget that spring goes hand in hand with sneezing. Delightful. I like to keep my allergies on their toes. One of the ways that I do this is through juicing. Are you surprised? You don’t look surprised. Maybe I should stop being so predictable. Would you like me to tap dance while talking about juicing? Add a little flair. Maybe some jazz hands. No problem. Let’s talk about the awesomeness that is dandelion greens.

They are so good for you, it’s stupid. I love a workhorse of a veggie. They are loaded with calcium, iron, tons of minerals, and a surprising amount of protein. They are great detoxing greens! I have found them to be really helpful in the fight against my spring allergy ickiness. The greens have a spicy and peppery taste which reminds me a little bit of arrugula. The sweetness of the apple and the tartness of the lemon help to balance out the spiciness of the greens. I also added in a nice handful of fresh parsley which is another amazing dextoxing ingredient. I am not fooling around with this cup of juice. It is some serious stuff.

If you are a beginning juicer and are not used to the taste of green juice, I would either cut the amount of dandelion greens in half , or add in a nice big pear to the mix. I promise you wont regret it. Drinking up a big cup of greens always makes me feel like dancing. Jazz hands for days!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Happy Spring! Let’s punch those allergies in the face. Hard. xo

  1. That looks so incredibly good. Can you tell me what juicer/machine you use? My blender is misreepresenting itself by saying it’s a blender, so we’ve been thinking about a getting something different to take ovwer that job. Any input is appreciated!

  2. My husband and I just started juicing and we are excited! We have come across several recipes calling for dandelion greens. Where can we get them other than picking them from the wild? Thanks!

    • Kelly! Welcome to the wonderful world of juice!! I was able to find them at my local grocery store. They are usually with the rest of the greens. Or, you might have some luck at your local farmers market! :)

  3. This is so tasty! I’ve been struggling to find a more enjoyable green juice and this hit the spot! Looking forward to checking out your other recipes. Thank you!
