Mellow Mater Juice Recipe

Mellow Mater Juice Recipe

This Mellow Mater Juice Recipe is an extremely lite juice that is great for a thirst quencher. It’s packed with ‘maters, basil, parsley, lemon, celery, carrot, romaine lettuce, and cucumber. It all ties together with a pleasant but very mild taste. It has a slight tomato aftertaste with a hint of romaine and basil at the end. This recipe is lite and great for those of you who enjoy tomatoes. It’s almost like a watered down V8 juice.

I also made another one and added some hot sauce as recommended by @JnConstitution (JuicerJohn in the forums).  That variation turned out to be really flavorful. I think I will try this a few more times with the addition of different hot sauces to amp it up as I really enjoyed the spiced up version of this. So enough of my chatter, time for the recipe since that’s why your hear right?

  • 2 Tomatoes (Med)
  • 1 Large Handful of Basil
  • 1 large Handful of Parsley
  • 4 Stalks of Celery
  • 2 Carrots
  • 2 Romaine Leaves
  • 1 Cucumber
  • ¼ Lemon (Peeled)

So there’s the Mellow Mater Juice Recipe. There are a lot of options for substitutions and variations here. The Basil could be replaced by Spinach or Kale if you wanted to. It would change it up a bit but if you’re not fond of Basil those are good options. The Parsley would best be replaced by some fresh Cilantro to give it less of an Italian taste and more of a Mexican salsa flavor. Some other good substitutions would be to replace the Lemon with Lime, the Carrots with Beets, the Romaine with Cabbage, or the Cucumber with either Squash or Zucchini.

Experiment with these options and let us know what you did and how it turned out by posting a comment below. I’m looking forward to hearing different variations of this and trying them out myself. Happy juicing, and make sure you clean your produce really good before juicing.

  1. Mellow Mater has been my favorite recipe so far. I heated it up as a dinner last night and it tasted so good, I drank it so fast, I wished I had had more of it. I have just started juicing and am on day 3. I will be making this again tonight as “dinner”. The information you have provided on this site has really helped get me on the right track and understand my options and do things the healthy way. I have successfully gotten to this day with no side effects other than just having to push through the mental aspect of it. Thanks again, I really appreciate what you have done here on this site!

  2. I’m swapping my coffee machine in the kitchen for my juicer which has been packed away for some time. I’m really inspired to give this a go and although I only need to lose 7lbs its the healthy aspect I’m intrigued about so going to try it Mon – Fri and then continue with my normal healthy eating/ exercise plan on a weekend. Thank you – This website is a real eye opener and inspiration.

  3. Thank you for this post, i would like to try this mellow mater juice, imsure there will be a lot of substitution and variations which may vary.

  4. I’ve decided to start juicing to lose a few pounds, but looking at everything on the site has me feeling overwhelmed. Any advice?

  5. I’m just you do green smoothies at all?

    • Only when I’m not fasting. During your fast you want to eliminate all of the fibers. Smoothies contain all of the insoluble fibers (pulp) and that won’t work for a juice fast.

  6. I’ve been meaning to ask someone who’s an expert in juicing about the health benefits you can get from adding basil leaves into the juice. I don’t love the taste of it but can learn to live with if the benefits are worth it.

    • Eileen, thanks for the comment. Medicinally, basil is mainly used for it’s anti-inflammatory benefits. Eugenol is an oil in basil that blocks enzymes in the body that cause swelling, making basil a good treatment for people with arthritis. Basil also has powerful antioxidant properties that can protect against premature aging and a lot of the most common skin issues. Basil oil has been known to treat many things including constipation, stomach cramps, indigestion, as well as the cold, flu, asthma, whooping cough, bronchitis, and even sinus infection.

      Basil also contains a good source of magnesium which can help improve blood flow.

      Hope this helps Eileen!
