FRESH FRUIT AND VEGGIE JUICE RECIPES


Vegan Month of Food 2013

Welcome back to Vegan MoFo! We’re 19 days in and I’m still going strong – this is post number 15. In case you missed any of my earlier posts, you can check them out here:

A couple of weeks ago I posted about my 9 favorite vegetables to drink as part of my Thirsty Thursday series. Last week I gave you a couple of smoothie recipes for these veggies and today I want to give you some juice recipes.

All 9 of the vegetables I listed in my previous post are great for juicing!

  • leafy greens that still have their stems
  • carrots
  • beets
  • cucumber
  • zucchini
  • ginger
  • fennel
  • broccoli
  • sweet potatoes

Amazingly Unbeatable Beet Juice

  • 1 large beet, peeled
  • 1 apple, cored
  • 1 orange, peeled
  • 1 inch piece of ginger
  • 3 carrots
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/2 zucchini

Carrot Apple Ginger Juice

  • 3 carrots
  • 2 apples
  • 1″ piece of ginger

Refreshing Fennel Pear

  • 2 pears
  • 1 bulb of fennel

Glorious Sunset Juice

  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 red bell pepper (I always leave it out because I hate them)
  • 2 beets
  • 2 apples
  • 1 orange

Floret Power

  • 2 pears
  • 3 cups of broccoli stems

Green Lemon Drop

  • 2 green apples
  • 1.5 cups spinach
  • 6 kale leaves with stems
  • 1/2 a cucumber
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 1/2 a lemon, peeled

CAB Juice (Carrot, Apple, Beet)

  • 2 apples
  • 4 carrots
  • 2 beets
  • 6 leaves Swiss chard with stems
  • 1″ piece of ginger

These are just some recipes ideas to get your creative juices flowing (no pun intended). Honestly, when I make juice at home I don’t usually follow a recipe. I have a huge juicing book that I consult sometimes, but most of the time I’m just using whatever produce I have on hand.

Don’t be afraid to try something new! If it doesn’t taste good, just add more fruit! :)
