Superfood Role Models: 10 Celebrities Who Drink Green Juice

We don’t always believe in taking health and beauty advice from celebrities (especially when they’re shilling for questionable beauty treatments or acting as spokesperson for the unproven health benefits of milk), but when they’re telling us to eat our vegetables, it’s hard to deny their wisdom. With several beautiful celebrities, smart doctors, and qualified nutritionists telling us to drink our greens for lower cholesterol, anti-aging benefits, and better digestion, we’re starting to think they’re onto something. (Plus, we just read Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy Diet, and she makes yet another convincing case for getting your superfoods and greens through a straw.)

Check out these ten celebrities who’ve jumped on the green juice bandwagon, and check out our juicing recipe and tips, below:

Want to try it for yourself? If you’re lucky enough to have a juicer, we recommend the fllowing recipe:

2 organic cucumbers (peel them if they’re not organic to avoid harmful pesticides)
2 handfuls of spinach or kale
3 stalks of celery
2 small apples or 1 pear
1 handful parsley

If you don’t have the means to juice at home (or the budget for a Hollywood juice bar), don’t despair: You can easily add baby spinach to a fruit or berry smoothie for an extra dose of liquid greens. (If you don’t mind the chewier texture, kale is a great green smoothie boost, too.) Not used to the taste? Try adding stevia powder or cinnamon for (healthy) sweetness and spice while you adjust to your new green ways.

    You guys obviously haven’t seen ‘Never Say Never’ — Usher makes Justin Bieber drink a shaker full of green juice. Says Biebs: “It tastes like dinosaur pee.”

  • Briana Rognlin

    Thanks for the info. I’ve been drinking a powder mixed either into water or another beverage (typically V-8) called Enriching Greens. It tastes nasty enough to be good for me, and it’s quicker, easier and less messy than juicing. Is this a reasonable substitute?

    I have seen so many celebs going around with bottles of this green goop, almost has much as I have seen celebs with their trademark giant Starbucks caffeine fixes. Going to put this on my blog and perhaps do a weeks trial!
