Wild Juice Recipe

“One is tempted to say that the most human plants, after all, are the weeds.” — John Burroughs

wild juice everywhere

Wild Juice Everywhere!

Go wild and drink your weeds! These are your true medicines and they are for free! If you are trying to coop with  a tight budget, wild edibles are the ideal solution to nourish your body, to regain or sustain your health without robbing your purse. So what are you waiting for? Take a hike through the woods, the fields or if you have a garden, have a close look at what nature is offering right under your nose.

  • Dandelion (you can use everything. Juice the roots with the leaves to “ground” so you don’t get high on juice
  • Lambs quarter
  • Stinging Nettles (use the tops, don’t use anymore when they produce seeds; the kidneys can’t handle those)
  • Wild grasses (all cereal grasses with wide blades are good, not the ornamental grasses from your lawn)
  • Outdoor wheatgrass
  • Clover
  • Chickweed
  • Barley
  • Purslane
  • Cattail
  • Mallow or Malva Neglecta
  • Plantain
  • A slow juicer
  • If you don’t have one, blend the greens with a little bit of water and strain it through a sieve or nut milk bag
  • Bunch of stinging nettles (they have a soft spinach-like taste so you can use as many as you like)
  • 2 dandelion plants with roots
  • A whole bunch of wild cereal grasses!
  • 2 to 3 narrow plantain plants, 1 wide blade plantain (is more bitter)
  • 2 hands full of chickweed (soft taste)
  • A hand full of clover
  • 4 stalks of white celery
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 apples
  • About a one inch piece of ginger (to taste)
  • 1 fennel (juice their stalks with greens as well)
  • 1/2 head of broccoli
  • 1 lemon with peel (only if it is organic!)
  • 1 TBSP Spirulina (optional but great)
  • Some greens such as collard greens, a few kale leaves,…
  • Start with juicing the grasses, stinging nettles and throw this pulp on your compost
  • Juice all the other ingredients (you can use this pulp for crackers)
  • A Juicer
  • A sharp knife and a cutting board
  • Two big apples, cored
  • One pear
  • One kiwi
  • About 6 to 8 carrots
  • A BIG chunk of ginger (I love ginger! so if you don’t, you can leave it out or add less)
  • One lime

  1. Juicing weeds! That is a first. I have never heard of it before. We will have to look into it and see what kind of benefits each weed provides.

    Thanks for the post!

    Wow am so pleased I came across this information, had been considering purchasing myself a juicer (meant to be a healthy choice), but just can’t select which manufacturer is the best to purchase..? I suppose some more blog posts such as this is likely to make my selection quite a bit easier.
