Juicing Substitution List

Juicing Substitution List

Juicing Substitution List

This juicing substitution list will show you what to use for fruit and vegetable replacements regardless whether you just don’t like certain produce, are allergic to some of the ingredients, or simply do not have access to them. Some ingredients can be hard to stomach for certain people and I’m here to tell you and show you that you can easily substitute those ingredients for something more desirable. Even if you have allergies you can and should check the juicing substitution list to see what alternatives you have.

Substituting Fruits

You’ll see that in the juicing substitution list I have many fruits and most of them can be replaced with just about any other fruit of your choice. It’s very easy to go overboard with your fruits so you will want to ensure your juices don’t contain more than 20% fruit.  You can also replace a fruit with a vegetable such as a carrot or a beet as both of those have a sweet taste when juiced.

Substituting Veggies

One major thing to keep in mind when using the juicing substitution list to pick out veggies is that you must have a protein veggie in your drink. A good source of protein in your juice will be from spinach or kale. When looking for spinach or a kale replacements I’ve only included other protein rich veggies to make sure you get your still get your protein. Most veggies are easily replaceable but for the sake of flavor I’ve included what I feel are the best possible substitutions while keeping close to the original flavor.

With these substitutions you will not only have an idea of what can be substituted but an idea of the different tastes that can be used to modify your juices. I use this guide not just as a substitution list but also as a guide to come up with new ideas for recipes. A fun idea is to take an existing recipe that you already enjoy and substitute one, two, or three ingredients. You’ll be surprised at how different but delicious just a few minor substitutions can have with a juice.

Juicing Questions & Answers

  1. I want to substitute spinach for kale but am uncertain about how many leaves to add.

  2. Thanks for publishing this list. It’s a great help!

  3. If I am substituting grapes or blackberries for apples how many would I use

    • Amanda, use enough to make the juice 16 – 20 ounces. I would be against that substitution though due to the amount of sugar in the grapes and blackberries. Be careful not to use too much sugar.

  4. Awesome list! It will be very handy to me. Just one question. What do you substitute pears with? Is it pineapple or kiwi good sources? I can’t eat apples unfortunately. . Thanks for the help!

  5. Started juicing yesterday, and although last night was a little rough it wasn”t as rough as I thought it was going to be. Today I feel good and even when making breakfast for my children I wasnt tempted.

    My question is how often would someone juice? If I do a 7 day program, then return to eating, how long would I wait to do it again. Or would this be something you could do every week for one or two days and then eat a diet with lots of fruits and veggies the rest of the time? Or would one wait a month or two then do another 7 days?

    Good advice would be appreciated. Thanks

    • I personally find that once a month is very good for your digestive system and body in general. Also if you don’t want to do seven days, you could do three.

  6. can you drink green tea in addition to the water requirements?

  7. I’m new to juicing and have just tried a few recipes, but it always tastes really salty, is there any way around it?
