The Juice Generation: 3 celebrity green juice recipes you’ll love


The Juice GenerationJuice Generation and Cooler Cleanse founder Eric Helm’s new book The Juice Generation (out today!) is like The Bible of juicing at home, with much prettier pictures.

It blends together more than 100 juice and smoothie recipes—from entry level to super green—plus advice on every aspect of the process, from shopping for and prepping produce, choosing a juicer, jargon you’ll need, and more.

And Helms also adds a big scoop of star power, with a foreward written by his co-founder Salma Hayek and juice-love testimonials from Hollywood A-listers like Naomi Watts, Jason Bateman, and Hilary Swank. Example: “Having fresh juices is mandatory for me—it’s part of my regular diet,” Kristin Bell says in the book.

A few celebrities even share their go-to green juice recipes, so you can imagine the spotlight while working your Breville. Here are three we know you’ll love. —Lisa Elaine Held

Get Started
Juice Generation 1Michelle Williams
“I am obsessed with any and all green juices….I can’t think of anything that makes me feel as good and is as easy to do.”

Michelle’s Leafy Green Goodness
Three kinds of green leaves deliver potent nutrition in an easy-t0-drink blend of fresh apple. Use tart green apples to lower the sugar content if you like.

3 leaves kale
1 cup spinach
2 leaves Swiss chard
4 medium apples
1/2 medium lemon, peeled


Blake juiceBlake Lively
“I come from a Southern family, so my taste leans more toward butter and sugar than veggies; if they’re battered in cornmeal and fried, then I’m in!….Then a few years ago, I had a juice that changed it all for me—a mix that’s better than any po’ boy you’ll ever eat.”

Blake’s Intoxicating Detoxification
Sweet, bitter, mild, and fresh—this drink marries many tastes into one beautifully proportioned, and completely addicting, combination.

1 cup kale
2 leaves Swiss chard
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 small beet
1/2 cup pineapple
2 medium green apples
1 sprig fresh mint
1/2 medium lemon, peeled

*Red apples can also be used; these will add extra sweetness.


Juice Generation 3Debra Messing
“I am relatively new to juicing and I can honestly say the difference I feel is HUGE….I’m not a big green vegetable eater, so the juice really has filled a huge void in my diet, and I feel stronger for it.”

Debra’s Green Elixir
The neutral greens of celery and cucumber plus the sweetness of apple and beet make this admirably green juice balanced enough to be completely inviting, not intimidating.

3 leaves kale
1 cup spinach
1 medium apple
5 stalks celery
1/4 medium cucumber
1/2 small beet
1/2 medium lemon, peeled
