Sunrise Surprise Juice – Recipe

Sunrise Surprise Juice

Sunrise Surprise Juice Recipe

The Sunrise Surprise is a delicious tangy and thirst quenching juice great for early morning or pre-lunch. It is a mix of apples, carrots, butternut squash, lemon, and ginger. You can also add spinach or kale for some more nutrition to make this a very well rounded juice drink. The apples give it a sweet taste while the carrots and squash add a uniqueness to it that evens out the sweetness. The ginger gives it some bite and the lemon balances everything out perfectly. Try this at home and experiment by adding or replacing with other fruits and veggies such as pumpkin, oranges, pineapple or even lime!

Sunrise Surprise Juice Recipe Ingredients

1/2 butternut squash peeled, gutted, and cubed

2 small apples gala, cored and quartered

1-2 carrots

1″ of ginger

1/4 lemon peeled


As always, remember to clean your produce before you juice.

  1. I reading your articles and blogs today and am excited to start right after I finish this 7days Almased liquid fast. I only have a nutri bullet. Is this okay to use on the juice fast?

    • Chyrell, welcome to JOJ! A nutri bullet is a blender and not a juicer. With that being said, I’ve seen people have success when they use the nutri bullet if they squeeze the blend through a strainer or cheese cloth. This ensures that a majority of the solids stay out of your drink and you are left with mostly juice. Give it a try and let me know how it works out for you! Keep me updated on your progress after you get started Chyrell. I’m always here if you have any questions! Cheers!

  2. Hi there to all, since I am in fact keen of reading this web site’s post to be updated regularly.

  4. i am nursing mom,i have a question about this safe for taking juicing diet for a nursing mom like me?

  5. i don’t have butternut squash so i just juiced with the remaining ingredients. it was sweet and a bit sour with a little zing because of the ginger. my little girl snatched my glass so you could say it was really good. :)

  6. Hey there started juicing this morning! Started out with the lemon water and have made the sunrise surprise juice. I replaced the squash with sweet potatoes, and added raspberries. It turned out fantastic! It tastes amazing. The raspberries made this delectable. Happy juicing!

  7. Hello!!

    Would like to know what can be a substitute for the butternut squash

    Thank you!

  8. I tried this and it was really nice, i forgot the apples though and so i juiced 1 orange, but it didnt make a full glass even though i used 3 carrots, im wondering if my squash was too small/not very juicy :(

    • Elizabeth, it’s okay to have more or less than a full glass. Every juicer is a little different and produce sizes vary. As long as you felt full it worked out perfect. Also, apples give an amazing amount of juice so that might have been the reason. I’m glad you enjoyed it though. Happy New Year!

  9. Hello, what juice can you recommend as dinner meal replacement juice? I’m looking for a recipe that will give me and my husband a good night sleep :-) Thanks.

  10. Your website is so informational. I especially enjoy your quick responses to questions that are posted. Juice recipes are amazing!! I am glad to have stumbled across your FB page & website. Keep up the the awesome work Donnie!!

    • Thanks Gladys! I’m glad you are getting all of the information you need. Let me know if you have any questions. I’m here to help in any way I can.

  11. Oooooohhh….I made this when I got home from gym today as my pre-lunch meal. Wow! It’s yummy!

  12. Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions? Cheers!

    • Edmond, go for a wordpress site on your own paid hosting plan. You’ll get the best of both worlds. Thanks for your comment.

  13. A food processor would atclaluy work as well as a juicer and there are some very inexpensive, though small, processors out there. Anyway, working w/a blender, for your veggies: beets, cucumber, tomatoes, spinach are my first choices and all will do well in your blender. Avoid celery and any stringy, super tough veggies as they don’t pulp well. For fruits: pineapple, pears, apples, oranges, banana’s, peaches, strawberries, lemons, limes. Peel everything then cut your veggies/fruits throw in the blender, add ice and put some liquid in the blender before you pulp your fruits/veggies, and while you’re learning just blend a bit, stop, move the food around, pulp again. Add liquid if needed. Now you won’t extract as much juice this way, the end result will be thick. Add lots of ice and you’ll have to add either water or some other liquid to have a juice consistency.Enjoy.

    • Actually, a food processor or a blender wont work. The reason being is that when using those, you still get the fiber from the fruits and vegetables. A major point of juicing is to avoid the fibers so your digestive system gets a break and you get all of the energy that your body used to use in the digestive process.

      • so many people argue that a blender or thermomix will do the same job…NO PEOPLE THEY WONT !!!!!!Keep it simple stupids…get a juicer :)

        • I tried blending and using a food processor and even tried the grinder on my Kitchen Aid, none of these worked very well or I had to strain a ton of pulp for very little juice. I finally broke down and bought a juicer and it’s possibly the best $300 I’ve ever spent. As a graduate student this was a considerable expense, but the improved health and overall increase in energy are completely worth it.
