Easy, Healthy Juicing Recipes

Juicing is a healthful way to get the nutrients in fresh fruits and vegetables without having to eat many platefuls of food. There are no hard and fast rules with juicing; you can get creative and experimental with your juicing.

Here are some easy recipe to get you started.

1. Green Morning Pick-Me-Up
For two servings, put into your juicer:
-1/2 a ripe pear
-1/2 an apple
-1 small bunch of kale (you can also use spinach)
-1 small cucumber

2. Citrus Cooler
The pineapple in this gives it a refreshing, sweet flavor.
-1 orange
-1/2 grapefruit
-1 slice fresh pineapple
Serves 1

3. Green Vegetable Juice
-1 small cucumber
-1 small bunch spinach
-1 stalk celery
-1 small apple or pear
Serves 1

4. Red Vegetable Juice
-1 medium tomato
-3-4 leaves of green cabbage
-1 stalk celery
-1 garlic clove
-1 slice of onion, about 1/4-inch thick
-1 small handful of fresh parsley
After juicing the above, add sea salt or cayenne pepper to taste. A squeeze of lemon juice can enhance this, too.

5. Melon Juice
For one serving, put the following into your juicer:
-1 slice ripe cantaloupe
-1 slice ripe honeydew melon
-1 slice watermelon
Add lemon juice to taste if you like.

Any leftover juice can be frozen in ice cube trays, then whizzed in your blender to make a refreshing, slushy smoothie. Or freeze leftovers into popsicle molds.
