Juicing Recipes at JustOnJuice.comJuicing Recipes at JustOnJuice.comFresh Fruit Juice is something most of us love, but vegetable juice, not so much. Fresh Fruit Juices taste wonderful, sweet, and delicious but when we think about Vegetable Juices, we tend to associate them with tasting like freshly cut grass. Are there ways to make vegetable juicing taste good? What are some ways to make great tasting Juice Recipes while still being healthy? Well, keep reading and you will learn some great techniques to make your Juicing Recipes taste delicious!

1. Adding fruits or carrots to your juicing recipes will give them a sweeter flavor while mellowing out some of the harsher veggie flavors like those of kale and spinach. I prefer to add a granny smith apple to my juices as these types of apples have the least amount of sugar in them. Lemons and limes are also great to add to any juice recipe as they tend to mask harsh flavors while adding a tang to your juice. You will have to experiment with your juice recipes and see what engages your palate and what tastes best to you.

2. Test out different fruits and vegetable and see what each one tastes like individually. Take a small or medium size slice of cucumber, then juice it into a small glass. Do the same with other veggies or fruits like kale, spinach, apples, carrot, celery, beets, artichokes, broccoli, mango, oranges, lemons, etc. Try a little sip from each one so you have a feel for how strong or sweet they are. Then start by mixing something strong with something sweet. Take the kale and mix in some apple, lemon, or carrot until you come to a happy medium with the flavors. This is a great way to test out different ideas or juice recipes without having to make a full juice that you don’t like but force yourself to drink.




3. Always shoot for the freshest and most organic fruits and vegetables for your juicing recipes. The more fresh your produce is, the better it will taste and the more nutritional value it will have. Check your area and see if there are any local farmers market meetups. Every Saturday just a mile down the street, a bunch of local farmers get together and sell their produce. I found that not only was my juice of a tastier quality, my wallet was thanking me as well. So always get organic when possible, it does make a difference that your body will surely notice.

4. Should I peel or skin my veggies and fruits? NO, the skins are where a lot of the nutritional value is. If you peel and skin them, you are throwing away very healthy nutrients. It’s best to leave it on with the exception of butternut squash, pumpkin or super hardened produce like it. But always leave the skin on when making your juice. Your body will thank you.

5. Make sure you get a good juicer. Your juicer doesn’t have to be a big fancy expensive one either. Get a juicer that has at least a 700-watt motor. You will want to make sure it has the power to juice everything without any problems. When looking for a juicer for your juicing recipes, make sure you also get a juices that is easy to take apart and clean. If your juicer is very complicated and time consuming to clean, you might get discouraged and not juice. I use a Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor, it’s very powerful, easy to clean, and has a large pulp catch for big batches of juice. It’s also on sale and 20% off!

6.  Use a wide variety of ingredients in your juice recipes. Don’t simply mix one fruit or one vegetable, go crazy and try mixing numerous things together. Remember, your juicing for the health benefits and not so much for the taste itself. The more of a variety of vegetables and fruits you use, the more nutritious and healthy your juicing experience can and will be.

I hope you enjoy these juicing recipes and reap the rewards that are in store for you. Below are a few very healthy juicing recipes for you try or experiment with. Please feel free to comment or email me your own juicing recipes for me to try, review, and to add to the blog.

  1. If I only Juice 3 days a week, say Monday- Wens and then eat salads after that the rest of the week, and maybe have a cup of coffee on the days that I am not juicing, will it still benefit me? I am not certain I could go away from coffee all together.

    Thank you

  2. Many recipes call for celery. The only flavor I do not care for. What is a good substitute for celery

    • Cucumber, zucchini, jicama,turnip, parsley root, and kohlrabi

  3. I must admit I am sooooo nervous! I start a 7 day juicing cleanse tomorrow for the first time and I am excited and a little scared at the same time. My brand new juicers parts are in the dishwater right now and I am so reeked. I have never really juiced before with the exception of a breakfast “juice” I’ve purchased from the store and this will be a very important step for me.

    I am documenting and video taping this journey. I am 100% committing to 7 days BUT I really want to go for 14. I am hoping that at the end of the 7 day, I have the strength and courage to continue. Wish me Luck!

  5. I just got home from purchasing my Hamilton juicer and I am so excited to start this cleanse tomorrow. Im going to start off with the 3 day and if I enjoy it I will extend it to 7 days. I was wondering tho on how to start introducing food about into my diet after the cleanse is over. I am normally a healthy eater.. egg whites yogurt and salads. How many juices should I have each day along with solid food? Can I drink my daily morning cup of coffee? I also do hot yoga atleast once a week so I want to make sure I have the proper nutruitions in my system so I dont pass out. Thanks :)

    • Christina, welcome to JOJ and congrats on starting your juice fast! If you’re wondering how to include solids into your diet after the fast then read this article: http://www.justonjuice.com/how-to-eat-after-a-fast/

      You will find that you wont need the coffee anymore. You want to eliminate the caffeine as it’s a toxin. You should be fine to do your yoga. Cheers!
