Apples are a great way to add a little sweetness to your fruit and vegetable juices. My favorite apple to juice is the Granny Smith, I will usually grab that for my green drinks and if I want something a little sweeter will pick up a Pink Lady. If you want to add a lot of sweetness to your juice to maybe offset the bitterness of a particular green, the Fuji or Gala are great choices. When juicing with a commercial fruit and vegetable juicer like the Zumex Multifruit or Nutrifaster you include them directly with your recipe. A good juicing technique is to vary hard and soft produce so if your recipe calls for leafy greens, I would place the greens in the juicer first and then follow up with the apple. The hard apple will help to push the greens through the juicer for a delicious tasting juice.
