Juicer Recipes Now

Welcome to Juicer Recipes Now. Here you will find a variety of information about buying juice extractors (click here to learn about and buy juicers), juicing, the health benefits of juicing and healthy juicer recipes. In fact we have loads of healthy fruit and vegetable juice recipes!

Recipe #1 – Lemony Apple

– 2 apples
– 1 lemon
– 1″ slice of ginger

Tip: Juice the apples with their skins on. The skin is the most abundant area of the apple for flavonoid content. This will produce cloudy but more nutritious (and still delicious) drink. This recipe is also a great remedy for colds.


Recipe #2 – Plain O’ O.J
O.J
-4 medium-sized oranges

Tip: When juicing oranges (or any kind of citrus fruit in your recipes for juicers) it is a good idea to juice the white membranes at the center of the orange. The majority of the bio-flavonoids in citrus fruits are found in the white membranes. Scrape off some of the white membranes inside the peel and include them in the juice. We don’t recommend juicing the whole peel, this will produce a very sour unpleasant taste.

Recipe #3 – Alkaline Juice
alkaline drink
-1 cup of spinach
– 1/2 cucumber
– 2 stalks of celery including leaves
– 3 carrots
– 1/2 apple

Tip: Juice cucumbers with their skins on. The dark green skin is a great source of chlorophyll, a phytochemical that can help build red blood cells. Cucumbers also contain silica, a mineral that is good for the skin. Make sure to wash them before making cucumber homemade juice recipes.


Recipe #4 – A Very Berry Medley
berry juice
-2 cups of strawberries
– 2 cups of blueberries
– 1 1/2 cups of raspberries

Berries are among the quickest and easiest of fruits to juice. The only prepping they need is a quick rinse. Strawberries are a small exception as they will need to be topped before juicing. All berries are a great source of antioxidants such as anthocyanins, flavonoids and ellagic acid, all of which have been associated with anti-cancer and anti-heart disease benefits.


Recipe #5 – Pomegranate Juice
pomegranate drink
-5 pomegranates

Tips: Cut open the pomegranate and gently scoop out the seeds. Only put the seeds into your juicer machine and discard everything else. The seeds will not make it into the final juice but will be discarded into the pulp collector.

You will find that the seeds of 5 pomegranates will provide you with a small amount of juice – 1 cup at best, depending on the size of the pomegranate. I recommend using a blender for making pomegranate – you will get a lot more juice.

Put the seeds of all 5 pomegranates into the blender with half a cup of water and let rip. Now strain the juice with a medium mesh strainer. You can get more liquid out of the remaining pulp if you strain it through a double layered cheese cloth. Last step is to pass the juice through a fine mesh strainer and wallah – you got about 2 1/2 cups of a pomegranate healthy juicing recipe.

    Hi there,

    these are some tasty recipes! The berry juice is delicious, but I hear that fruit juices may not be as healthy as was once thought. Whats your thought on that?

    Thanks for the great site
    Clarice

    Hi Clarice,

    Glad you like out site. You bring up a good question about fruit juice, we should be more moderate about it because of the sugar it contains, but they still contain loads of healthy antioxidants and other nutrients. I wrote an article addressing this http://juicerrecipesnow.com/is-fresh-fruit-juice-bad-for-you/

    Darren,

    My doctor told me I need to loose weight. What vegetables are considered a carbohydrate and what fruits should I stay away from because of the high sugar content? I don’t mind having these, but want to juice them in moderation, but still get the nutrients.

  4. Robin says:

    Darren,

    I read the link that you sent to Clarice and it was very helpful. What is your take on juicing collard greens?

  5. veronica says:

    Hi Robin,

    Collard greens are great! Like kale and spinach, collards are a dark leafy green vegetable, this means they are some of the most low-calorie but nutritionally dense of vegetables. Such dark leafy greens are really at the core of the best health benefits of juicing.

    As for fruits, lemons and limes are more of a low calorie fruit for juicing, relatively speaking. Simply adding just one apple to green juices is a nice way to sweeten them a little without over doing it.

    Hi,

    How long can the juice be stored in a refrigerator before it goes bad (both veggie and fruit varieties)? I like making pitchers of juice for the family, but I worry about how long it’s good.

    Thanks.

  7. veronica says:

    Hi Anthony – I wrote a post about that very subject about a month ago! It is an important question, and a question that we get a lot here. You can check out the post at http://juicerrecipesnow.com/how-long-can-i-store-fresh-made-juice/

    I just purchased a Juicer and will be starting tomorrow. I have been searching for information along with recipes and your site has to be the best one that I have come across.. Thank you so much!

    I am wondering how many times a day do you Juice? I am looking to lose a few pounds but don’t want to do a juice fast.

  13. veronica says:

    Hi Tracy,

    We are glad you like the site :-)

    Juicing once a day is plenty to get great health benefits. We tend to drink 1 a say at morning time usually. Some people drink 2 or 3 a day, but even drinking 3 juices a week is still a great way to get lots more antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other healing plant chemicals into the diet.

  14. veronica says:

    Hi there Mel,

    To keep you sugar content as low as possible, you will need to stay clear of all fruit juices. While fruit juice is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, it is also high in sugar, especially if you drink a 8oz glass of pure fruit juice.

    The best bet is to stick with vegetables, as a rule they contain a lot less sugar than fruits. Green vegetables (broccoli, kale, spinach, cabbage) are the best option, they are very low in sugars but super high in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals. In fact green juices are really the most powerful and potent of all juices, and should really be your top choice for low sugar juice. Please note, that there are some veggies that are a little sugary, starchy vegetable such as carrots and potatoes. So you probably want to stay clear of those. You will find some recipes on http://juicerrecipesnow.com/15/ you will need to adopt them a little by passing up on the carrots or apples that are in the recipes.

    Hope that helps

    Hi. I am thinking of buying a jucier but am getting confused whether
    To buy a masticating or centrifugal jucier. I am a low/no sugar person so I guess greens would be what I would mostly be juicing. Are apples okay to sweeten up a green drink? Any other ideas??? Just want to incorporate a change with juicing to my already healthy lifestyle. Thanks for any info you can give me!!!

  16. veronica says:

    Hi Jeannie,

    Thanks for the question, and sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I am just moved from 1 country to another!

    If you are looking to juice lots of greens, then I would definitely get a masticating juicer. Centrifugal machines are ineffective at juicing thin stuff, such as leafy greens like spinach and kale, and cannot juice ultra thin stuff like wheatgrass. Check out our guide to choosing a juicer machine:

    http://juicerrecipesnow.com/how-to-choose-the-best-juice-extractor-juicer-machine-for-you/

    Yep – apples are perfect for sweetening up leafy greens :-) However, I recommend not to overdo the apples to keep the sugar content low. 1/2 an apple or just 1 per juice is fine. I personally don’t drink more than one piece of fruit in a juice, and actually tend to use carrots for sweetening more so than apples.

    Hope that helps and have fun

    First time in your site.. Really love the combination of fruits and vegetables used in each juice.. Thanks for sharing

  18. Kevin says:

    With your advice we try to juice and drink right after. During the work week sometimes there is more lapse time between drinks.

    The Breville recipe calls for strawberries, kiwis, grapes, and some milk. If we make this the night before work will it still be good the next morning/afternoon?

    You have done a really good job teaching us to juice as close to making the drink as possible. How long can we leave milk with juice before drinking? 1, 2, 3 days?

  19. AlyricA says:

    I just purchased my juicer and also am starting the coconut diet and jj – virgin diet. I love coconut but I know coconut meat can be a bit stringy/hairy and I want to juice it for it’s flavor but am not sure if it will ‘thin’ out in a juicer and just give me it’s juice or oil. My 2nd concern is will the shell juice of get stuck and possible tear up the motor of my juicer? Should I cut it from it’s outer shell. I have never used a juicer. Signed nervous and anxious to juice ‘-)
    Thank you in advance for your help.

  20. veronica says:

    Hi there :-)

    Coconut water and the flesh is so healthy – I love it. However, I have never juiced coconut flesh. I have heard of a few people doing it, but it is very hard and I am concerned it will break your juicer. The Breville juicer machines are very solid, so I believe they could handle it, but there could be a risk. You might be better served stirring coconut water from a fresh coconut into any juice you make. Sorry I could not be of more help with this one, but as I said, I have never juiced a coconut.

    Cheers
    Darren

  21. veronica says:

    Hi Kevin :-)

    Provided you store the juice correctly, I am certain that it will be fine overnight. Check out out page that goes into this in more detail: http://juicerrecipesnow.com/how-long-can-i-store-fresh-made-juice/

    I have never mixed juice with milk, so storing the 2 together is not something I am familiar with, but I can’t foresee any issues.

    Best

  22. Margaret says:

    What does one do with all the remaining pulp from all these wonderful fruit and vegetable ingredients. I feel bad throwing it away. Has anyone come up with good uses???

  23. veronica says:

    Hi Margaret :-)

    There are ways to put the pulp to good use. You can use it to bake breads and muffins – carrot or zucchini pulp can be used for carrot or zucchini bread for example. Blueberry or other fruit pulp could be used for muffins. Vegetable pulps can be used for making soups, and tomato pulp is great as an ingredient for salsa. Hope these ideas are helpful.

    Another thought is to get a composter for the kitchen, or the garden. Then any unused pulp can be turned into very useful soil.

    Hi Cristina,

    Oh no, not the bloaties! It is a good idea to check in with your Doctor about the cause of your bloating. It is probably best to figure out what the cause of the bloating is and treat the root of the issue. It could be dietary related, or 1 of many things. In addition to this, juicing vegetables and especially green veggies is a great overall health tonic. Green veggies contain very little sugar but are brimming with antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins and minerals. Green juice is also very alkaline, which is major benefit since most of us are overly acidic. So green juice helps reduce inflammation in the body and promotes a healthier digestion.

    Enjoy
    Darren
