Tropical Fruit Juice Blend

This recipe makes two servings and takes approximately 10 minutes to make.

  • 1 Kiwi Peeled
  • 6 Strawberries
  • 1 Orange Peeled
  • 1/2 Mango Peeled and Sliced
  • 1 cup Pineapple Chunks
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Water

This tropical fruit juice blend is a great breakfast juice or perfect to take the edge off that sweet tooth if you are used to eating something sweet regularly. This juice is packed full of antioxidants as well as vitamins and minerals. Your body will thank you by giving you plenty of energy!

Citrus and Ginger Juice Blend (Immune System Booster)

This recipe makes one serving and takes approximately 10 minutes to make.

  • 1 Orange
  • 3 Strawberries
  • 1 Lemon whole
  • 2 Large Carrots
  • 1/2 inch Fresh Ginger

This citrus and ginger juice blend is crammed full of vitamin C and is the perfect boost to your immune system, particularly when cold season comes around! Additionally, the ginger in this juice is a great addition if you are experiencing a number of ill-health symptoms including: nausea, headaches, inflammation or pain from an injury. If you find the ginger taste to be too strong, try cutting it down a little until the flavor meets your liking. Keep in mind however, that many of the positive benefits of this juice blend come from the ginger!

Vegetable Juice Blend

This recipe makes one large serving or two smaller servings and takes approximately 10 minutes to make.

  • 2 Tomatoes – Medium (I like Roma tomatoes best!)
  • 1 Stalk of Celery
  • 1 Carrot – Large
  • 1 Cup Broccoli
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1/2 Lemon – Peeled
  • 1 Garlic Clove

This vegetable juice blend is a great substitute for those commercial “vegetable” juices that come packed with sodium and other additives. This juice is packed full of heart-healthy nutrients without the risk of increasing blood pressure from high sodium. The tomatoes in this juice also make it a great source of lycopene, a nutritional agent that has proven beneficial in fighting cancer.

Green Machine Juice Blend (Low Sugar, High Nutrient)

This recipe makes one large serving and takes approximately 10 minutes to make.

  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/2 green apple
  • 1/2 lemon
  • A small piece of ginger
  • 1/2 green chard leaf
  • A small bunch of cilantro
  • 5 kale leaves
  • A handful of spinach

This green machine juice blend is packed full of leafy greens which contain the highest levels of nutrients of all the vegetables and fruits. This juice blend may take a few tries and a few tweaks to get it to your liking but the cilantro, ginger, lemon and apple all contribute unique flavor highlights. This leafy green juice is heart-healthy and promotes a beautiful clear complexion. Its low sugar content is also helpful in maintaining energy without a sugar high (and crash).

Strawberry Pineapple Mint Juice (Skin Beautifier)

This recipe makes one serving and takes approximately 10 minutes to make (less if your pineapple is already prepared.)

  • 1/2 a pineapple, peeled, cored and cubed
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 pear
  • 30 mint leaves

This sweet juice has just a hint of mint but plenty of sweetness to take the edge off any craving you might have for those refined sugars. With plenty of antioxidants as well as flavor this is a great juice to refresh your skin as well as your digestive tract.

Blueberry Pomegranate Juice (antioxidant Booster)

This recipe makes one serving and takes approximately 5 minutes to make.

  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • Sparkling water

After juicing the pomegranate seeds and blueberries add to a glass and top off the glass with sparkling water.

This is a very common juice combination in many commercial juices but when made naturally it comes with many more benefits. This natural blueberry and pomegranate combination eliminates refined sugars that are added during processing of supermarket juices but still gives all of the health benefits offered by these two superfruits!

Pineapple Lavender Juice (Calming Elixer)

This recipe makes one serving and takes approximately 10 minutes to make.

  • 1 pineapple, peeled, cored and cubed
  • 1 Tbsp of pesticide-free lavender blossoms

If you are feeling adventurous as far as tastes go then this pineapple lavender juice is a great choice. The pineapple juice brings sweetness and plenty of potassium, thiamine and vitamin C. Add the lavender to get the addition of iron, calcium and vitamin A as well as the potential for calming anxiety and reducing headache pain.

In rare instances, some individuals have allergic reactions to lavender so it is important to note any potential for allergy before preparing this recipe.

Delicious Purple Power Juice (Heart Healthy)

This recipe makes one serving and takes approximately 5 minutes to make.

  • 6 cups red grapes
  • 1 Golden Delicious apple
  • 2 (1-inch) pieces of ginger
  • 1/2 cup blackberries

This delicious purple power juice is not only deliciously sweet but it’s packed full of heart healthy vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The benefits of delicious red grapes combine with the anti-nausea benefits of ginger to create a well-rounded and healthy juice. Keep in mind that any juice that contains ginger allows you to reduce the amount of ginger to suit your taste.

Making Your Own Juices

One of the best parts of juicing is being able to make your own creations by combining your favorite fruits and vegetables. It’s even fun to add vegetables and fruits you don’t like that much to see if you can get the benefits of them while hiding the taste in other juice ingredients. Have fun while making your own juice combinations and remember, there is no such thing as rules when it comes to creating your own flavor!
