8 Juicing Recipes You Have to Try Known for its detoxing and preventative health benefits, juicing is also an easy way for the body to receive important nutrients.

If you don’t own a juicer, do some research on the right kind for you and your budget. Be sure to pick up one that comes apart easily for cleaning. Juicers can range wildly in price, but if you’re going to commit to juicing for the foreseeable future, we recommend investing in a high quality one that will last.

8 Juicing Recipes You Have to Try

A Few Tips

If you’re new to juicing, here are some great tips to keep you on the right track:

  • Ease into using vegetables and herbs with more intense flavors like beets and cilantro by halving the amounts at first.
  • Add in a fruity base to extreme green drinks containing leafy greens like kale or spinach, until your palate adjusts. Great choices are: pineapple, apple, lemon or lime.
  • Serve over ice, especially if you’re serving the juice to your kids.
  • Watch out for pits, they’ll ruin your juicer! Many fruits can be put through your juicer without slicing or cutting, but fruits like peaches or nectarines must be sliced and the pits must be removed.
  • Always wash your produce and try to buy organic if possible. See our post, Is Your Produce Out to Get You?, for more information and an easy homemade wash for fruits and veggies.
  • Experiment! Try different combinations and come up with your own recipes, it’s half the fun.
  • Save the pulp waste by running it through the juicer a second time or tossing it into your composter.

Cheers to a healthy lifestyle!
