1. Apple of My Eye

Makes 1 Liter                   

  • 8 Apples
  • 4 Carrots
  • 1 Lemon (peeled)

Apples and carrots are a natural match when it comes to juicing, and are the base of countless juicing recipes. The sweet crispness from the apples tastes great with the sweet earthiness of the carrots, and we add a lemon for a touch of acidity to round everything out.  Talk about a tasty, nutrient-packed juice!

2. Watermelon Sugar High

Makes 1 Liter

  • 3 cups Watermelon 
  • ½ pint Strawberries (hulled)
  • 1 Lime (peeled)

Whenever you feel your juice needs a bit of balance, a good trick is to add some lemon or lime juice to the mix. Watermelon juice by itself is delicious, but you’ll be surprised at how much better it is once you add a touch of acidity from some fresh lime juice!  

3. The Grape Escape

Makes 1 Liter

  • 3 cups Grapes 
  • 4 Apples
  • ½ Lime (peeled)

For this recipe, I suggest either red or black grapes (seeded if you can get them), but green will work just fine.  Same for the apples. Sweeter varieties are preferred but if you have a bowl full of super tart Granny Smiths, give them a whirl!  

4. Yellow Brick Road

Makes 1 Liter

  • 4 Oranges 
  • 2 Yellow Bell Peppers
  • 4 Yellow Carrots (orange is ok if you can’t find yellow)
  • 1 Lemon (peeled)

Let this fun, tasty juice brighten your day!  It’s not only delicious but chocked full of nutrients like Vitamins C & B and Potassium.  

5. Summer Melon Cooler

Makes 1 Liter

  • 1 Melon (honeydew, cantaloupe, etc.)

See, juicing doesn’t have to be complicated! Start with these simple recipes to get going, then blaze your own juicing trail by experimenting with your favorite fresh fruits and vegetables. The most important thing to remember is to have fun and enjoy the juice!
