There are loads of delicious juice recipes that you can make quite easily for yourself at home provided you have your own juicer. This site will focus exclusively on juice recipes for people who already have a juicing appliance. If you are interested in starting a healthier lifestyle but do not yet have one of these units then this is an area that you are going to have to research. There are plenty of online resources that can help you choose a juicer that is right for you.
The thing I like most about drinking fresh fruit and vegetable juices is that they taste great (usually) and make me feel great (always). You can literally juice up any fruit and/or vegetable that you want. Once you have your own juicing machine, you become the master of your own juicing domain.
You will quickly learn that some fruits do not really lend themselves to being juiced successfully. Specifically, this includes bananas and berries. They contain so much fiber that it is almost wasteful to feed them into a juicer. But don’t worry, if you like bananas and strawberries, these can easily be incorporated into great tasting juice smoothies.
So let’s get started with a discussion of some of the best juice recipes.
Straight Up Orange Juice
I know, I know. Not exactly original, is it? That said, a juice doesn’t have to be original to be good. It just has to be…good. With so many different types of oranges on sale, you can enjoy a range of flavors. A citrus juicer or unit that comes with a citrus juicing attachment is the easiest way to juice oranges. In this case you just have to cut each orange in half. But with a centrifugal, masticating or twin gear juicer, it is harder since you have to chop all the outer skin off then put it through the juicer. If ever there was an arguement for getting a dedicated citrus juicer. This is it.
Alkaline Green Juice
Now this might not sound too appetizing but don’t worry. It is not all greens. Just adding some green vegetables to your juice really does give the nutritional content a boost. It is real easy to make up your own recipes. One that I often have is based around apples and spinach. The sweetness in the apples and earthy taste of the spinach go well together. For a bit more taste you can add any or all of the following: ginger, celery, parsley, cucumber or carrots. This list is not exhaustive so you can easily have fun for weeks adding and subtracting various ingredients until you find the taste that is right for you. Fruits and vegetables that are high in potassium, magnesium and calcium help us alkalize. This is good as it helps us to feel more energetic and better able to concentrate.
