For decades juicing has been one of the most tried and true ways to stay healthy. Not only that – it’s one of the tastiest ways to get all of the nutrients your body needs to thrive. That is why you need tasty juicer recipes to get you start (if you are not yet started). But with all the various books out on juicing recipes, it can be difficult to know where to start. Below are four easy recipes to make the tastiest juices you’ve tasted in years. Follow them the first or second time through, and then get creative! The only one standing in your way is you.
Juicer Recipes #1 – Lemony Apple
– 2 apples
– 1 lemon
– 1″ slice of ginger
Juicing 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) apple juicer recipes. This healthy juicer recipe also makes a great remedy for colds.
Juicer Recipes #2 – Plain O’ O.J
-4 medium-sized oranges
Juicing 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 very sour unpleasant raw juice recipes.
Juicer Recipes #3 – Alkaline Juice
-1 cup of spinach
– 1/2 cucumber
– 2 stalks of celery including leaves
– 3 carrots
– 1/2 apple
Juicing 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.
Juicer Recipes #4 – A Very Berry Medley
-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.
