7 Healthy Juice Recipes That Are Downright Delicious

Healthy juice recipes are a great way to get in your daily fruits and veggies. Here are 7 that I particularly like.


Juicing is all the rage these days, and for good reason.

For those of us that would rather not eat 3 – 4 servings of fruits and veggies every day, juicing is a great way to provide our bodies with the vitamins and minerals needed to maintain optimal health and performance. You can spend money on a multivitamin or you can spend money juicing, and many people prefer the all-natural choice.

That said, I don’t recommend a 100% juice diet for weight loss or “cleansing” purposes (in my experience, 99% of the time someone says they’re “cleansing,” they’re just trying to lose weight). Severe calorie restriction is not only unsustainable, it’s quite unhealthy.

Instead, you can make juicing as part of a healthy weight loss diet by keeping track of the calories and going easy on the fruit, as it contains quite a bit of carbohydrates (which aren’t a problem in and of themselves, but if you drink too many calories, you’re going to find it very hard to lose weight).

That’s why you’ll find the nutrition facts for the healthy juice recipes in this article, and if you want to try your own concoctions, use this online juice nutrition calculator to determine the calories.

While we’re talking fruit, it’s also worth discussing the fructose issue, as many “experts” claim that it makes fruit consumption unhealthy.  The reality is while eating too much fructose is harmful to your health, the small amounts found in fruit as well as the fiber, which changes how your body absorbs the sugars, makes it quite hard to eat enough to be an issue.

If you eat 30 bananas a day, your fructose intake is too high and you should cut back. But if you’re a normal person and you eat a few pieces of fruit every day, you’re totally fine. And that applies to juicing as well: juicing 20 apples per day is a bad idea, but juicing a couple is totally fine. Juicing also removes the fiber from the fruit, so you lose the absorption benefits (and the many other benefits of dietary fiber).

And last but not least, if you’re new to juicing and wondering which juicer to buy, I highly recommend the Breville JE98XL. I’ve tried several other juicers 2 to 3 times as expensive and don’t see any reason to choose them over the Breville JE98XL:

  • It’s powerful, which means you don’t have to wrestle your material into it and it spits out a lot of juice.
  • It’s fast, which means no waiting 15 to 20 minutes for your cheaper juicer to chew through everything. This thing rips through anything you throw at it in a minute or two.
  • It’s easy to set up, operate, and break down and clean.


So, with all that out of the way, let’s get to the recipes!

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.

Many companies offer a money-back guarantee because they know the majority of dissatisfied customers aren’t going to go through the hassle of actually returning the product to get their money back. We don’t play these games because we don’t have to, the quality of our products makes it unnecessary.

If you order any of our supplements for the first time and don’t like it, you can keep it. Just notify us and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No complicated forms and no return necessary.

To protect ourselves from fraud, the It’s-On-Us guarantee is only valid for first time purchases of a product, and redeemable up to three months after purchase. If you bought more than one bottle of a supplement on your first purchase and don’t like it, we would ask that you send the unopened bottles back to us for a refund because we can put them back into our sellable inventory.


Many companies use shipping and handling fees to increase their profit margins, but here at Legion, we hate profit so our shipping is 100% free!

So, if you live in the United States, your order ships free regardless of order size, and if you live anywhere else, your order ships free when it’s over $99.

Why the restriction on international orders?

Unfortunately shipping outside of the US is very expensive and if we didn't require a minimum order size, we'd lose a lot of money. That said, most customers spend about $100 with us each time they shop, so this setup is a win-win.
