Prep Time: 5-10 minutes

Cook Time: N/A

Makes: 2 Servings

 So much nutrition packed in a glass! The fresh and vibrant flavor of garden cress makes it a zippy addition to homemade green juice! This tonic includes tart green apple, spicy ginger, citrusy lemon, refreshing cucumber, and sweet pineapple. No worries if you don’t have a juicer… you can easily make this in a blender too!


Benefits of Cress microgreens: 

  • Packed with vitamins A, C, and K
  • Contains omega-3 fatty acids
  • May aid immunity, disease prevention, weight loss, organ function, inflammation, heart health, and diabetes.
  • Pretty & tasty!


  • 3 celery ribs
  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • 1 English cucumber
  • ½ Garden Cress Seed Quilt 
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled (more or less to taste)
  • 2 lemons, peeled (or more to taste)
  • A few chunks of pineapple (Optional, for sweetness)
  • Spinach / Kale / Wheatgrass / Cilantro / Parsley (Optional add-ins)

 *Tip: If you don’t have a juicer, you can make this with a high-speed blender! You’ll want to peel and dice up the ingredients except for the lemon (instead, use 1-2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice). Just blend and strain. Add water to thin, if needed/desired.


  1. Cut the celery, apple, and cucumber into pieces that will fit in the mouth of a juicer.
  2. Set aside a few sprigs of cress for a garnish, if you like, and run the remaining cress, celery, apple, cucumber, lemon, ginger and pineapple, if using, through the juicer into a pitcher.
  3. Serve garnished with the cress sprigs and enjoy immediately.
