I have wanted to do an apple basil juice recipe for so long! I knew these two would go together well, and what do you know, they do!
I grew basil one year out of pots in the backyard of the apartment I lived in at the time. I was surprised at how easily it grew, and how little problems I had with it. Basil tastes great in foods, but it also really works with juice if you do it right! It’s all about balance and getting the flavors right.
This apple juice recipe is not only tasty, but has a nice light basil scent to it as you bring the glass to your mouth. The celery blends in perfectly and adds a unique flavor to this tasty juice!
5 Stalks Celery
1 Bunch of Basil (3 large handfuls)
If you want something more precise.
(8 cups chopped) Apple = 24 ounces juice
(2 and 1/2 cups chopped) Celery = 7 and 1/2 ounces juice
(2 cups chopped) Basil = a little over 2 ounces of juice
Yields around 33 and 1/2 to 34 ounces of juice.
(The ounces of juice listed is what we got when we made this juice recipe, and may not be the same every time or the same for every juicer.)
