My Favorite Green Juice Recipe: Alastair Greer


We tapped the hunky Irish fitness and nutrition expert for a detoxing green juice that will hopefully cure your St. Patrick's Day's hangover. Good luck.

Alastair Greer’s got some dreamy Irish eyes, but that’s not the (only) reason we tapped him to whip up a St. Patrick’s Day detoxing green juice.

Greer—who moved to New York from Ireland 15 years ago, was a professional Rugby player, and still sports a charming brogue—is one of the city’s most serious wellness gurus.

He’s the president of workplace wellness company WellBe Solutions and co-founder and trainer at City Athlete, which runs Central Park boot camps for adults and brings fitness to kids in city schools. (You can work out with him and his two co-founders this spring, when City Athlete kicks off its full class schedule.)

He’s also a trained chef via the Natural Gourmet Institute and a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, so while he doesn’t consider himself a “hardcore juicer,” he knows his way around a Vitamix. “I keep it pretty simple, but I do add a dash of Celtic Sea Salt. This salt really brings out the flavor of the greens, cuts down any bitterness, and adds essential minerals that help balance out my electrolytes after a hard workout.”

Plus, he says, it will “cure a St. Paddy’s Day hangover in 15 minutes flat.” Good luck. —Lisa Elaine Held

St. Patrick’s Day Green Juice

4-6 Lacinato kale leaves (stems included)
1 cucumber
2 apples
2-3 jicama
½ lemon (or lime)
½ inch ginger
Add a pinch Celtic Sea Salt (Himalayan is also a good option)

Press or blend and enjoy!
