Simple juicing recipes

Updated on March 30, 2013
This is why I now fill a container first, and then pour the juice into glasses! As you can see, the juice is not mixed well.

My own recipes

Throughout the last week, I have been substituting one meal for a juice (a blend of fresh fruits and vegetables). Juicing is healthy, refreshing, and an outstanding way to consume the daily recommended servings of both fruits and vegetables easily.

Below are a few of the simple recipes that I have tried during the past week:

-Makes 4 glasses (approx 14-16 oz. each)

  • 3 Red Delicious Apples
  • 1 1/2 cup (roughly) kale
  • 1/2 cucumber (without the skin)
  • 2 oranges (without the peel)
  • 1 peach (without the core)

-Makes 2 glasses (approx 14-16 oz. each)

  • 3 oranges (without the peel)
  • 1 lemon (without the peel)
  • 4 large carrots

-Makes 2 glasses (approx 14-16 oz. each)

  • 2 cup strawberries
  • 2 cup raspberries
  • 1 cucumber (without the peel)
  • 1/2 cup (roughly) kale

I have found it easier to catch the juice in a container, and then pour it into glasses. That way, the juice mixes more easily.

Anytime that I have used ginger, I have noticed that it tends to settle to the bottom of the glass. Shaking the juice occasionally helps to mix in the ginger once again. Otherwise, the last sip is a bit too much to handle!


Recipes that I have been given, or have found

I have received recipes (from friends and have located some online and in books) that sound delicious and packed full of nutrients. I have only tried a few of the following recipes, but cannot wait to dive head-first into the rest!

Recipe #1:

  • 3 large carrots
  • 1/2 apple (whatever kind you prefer)
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 cup (roughly) fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cucumber

Pomegranate Twist:

  • 2 pomegranates (without the peel)
  • 3 kiwis (without the peel)
  • 1 cup cherries

With this one, experiment to your heart's content. I have not yet tried adding any vegetables with to a juice in which I use pomegranate. I am anxious to find out what it will taste like!

Ironman:

  • 1 cup (roughly) spinach
  • 2 broccoli stalks
  • 3 apricots (without the core)

I have found this recipe with beetroot instead of apricots. I like the citrus twist myself.

Recipe #4:

  • 2 mango (peeled and without the core)
  • 2 large carrots
  • 2 apples (whatever kind you prefer)
  • 1 pear

This recipe packs antioxidants, which helps to decrease blood pressure.

Be creative

Of course, there are an endless amount of drink possibilities, as there are thousands of different types of vegetables, and hundreds of fruits. Try new recipes, simply by using ingredients that you like, or finding out nutritional facts that will help you out the most, and go from there!

Please feel free to share your recipes or ideas. I like to try new ones whenever possible!

      LOL Thank you, Springboard! I was hoping that no one would notice that... Oh yes, they do have some great beer. Burning River is my favorite from them! =]

      It's been a long time since we've chatted. I hope that you're doing well!

      BTW, I like the Great Lakes Brewing glasses you chose to juice into. Not as healthy as the juice yielded, granted, but Great Lakes makes some great beers as well.

      Ytsenoh - Thank you for reading and commenting. I absolutely agree with you! =]

      Springboard - It's amazing what juicing has done for people that were weighed down by medicine, illness, depression, and more. I feel the effects immediately, no matter what I juice. Yes, it is very messy, and can be expensive. I looked for things that yielded the most juice, like apples and beats, to get the most of my money. Regardless, spending 10-15 minutes cleaning up afterwards is pretty tedious and annoying. lol =]

      Thank you for stopping by & taking the time to read and comment!

      Years ago I used to juice and I have to say it was very good stuff, and whether it was a placebo effect, I just FELT good. My only issue was the cost and the mess...

      Still, feeling the need to get back onto a better health track I think the cost and the mess may well be worth it in the end.

      I'm sure this would offset the cost of doctor's bills if nothing else. :)
