Salad in a Glass

After Ryan's brownies with cream cheese swirl topping and Lizzy's chocolate mousse cake, I feel that I owe you something healthy! So today, I'm bringing you the vegetable juice that I love to make using our Jack LaLanne's Power Juicer. I remember that in my fruit juice post last month, I promised to share this with you. Well, here it is!
This is called Salad in a Glass. I must say that I've loved this from the first time I tried it! It doesn't only taste is packed with many health benefits too! If you think this  Salad in a Glass is just an ordinary juice, think again because this juice can provide you with 82% of your daily value of vitamin A, 60% of vitamin K, 19% vitamin C and 16% folate from the Romaine lettuce alone. So just imagine how healthier it is with the carrot, tomato, cucumber and celery! Just like the Romaine lettuce, tomato and carrot both have antioxidants that help reduce the risks for cancer. Celery on the other hand, helps regulate body temperature and is a natural tranquilizer. Cucumber is rich in sulfur and silicon which makes it a natural diuretic. With all these being said, I'm sure you'll understand why I love this juice! :)

Ingredients: (Adapted from Jack Lalanne's Power Juicer Recipes)
Yield 2 cups
  • 1/2 head Romaine lettuce
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 celery sticks
  • 2 Tbsp honey (optional)

1. Wash all the vegetables. Remove tops of carrots, hard white parts of the Romaine lettuce and the celery sticks.
 2. Press everything through a juice extractor. Sweeten with honey if desired. Stir and serve.  


  1. Cool! I'm always looking for more juice recipes. I'll have to try this one!

  2. Salad in a glass? Tina, that's for me for sure. I need all the energy I can get these days, and not eating enough salads, and raw veggies!
    Great ways to have you daily salad:DDD

  3. Salad in a glass?! What a cool idea, Tina! This one is totally meant for me! Just what I need when I'm on the go! :)

  4. Drink my salad! How convenient is that? I definitely need more vegetables in my diet. At the moment it's V8 for me until I get myself a proper juicer.

  5. This is soo good! I puree cucumber and salad everyday for my first 2 kids and hide it in their meals! I think a little fresh ginger juice would go so well with this great recipe of yours! xx

  6. hmmm never tried anything like it. i know that this is an acquired taste, i just have to decide to at least try it... but shhh i don't really eat veggies at all haha... this definitley sounds healthy nga haha.
    happy weekend tina!

  7. I know what you mean, Tina. We've been on dessert overload this week, and a salad in a glass sounds like the perfect option to get me off this sugar cycle!!! Hope you're having a fantastic weekend!

  8. What a delicious way to detox following a dessert overload :D
    Love it my friend!
