Basil Beet Blender Juice

Serves 2

Don’t have a juicer? You can still make this beet juice as long as you have a blender and something to strain the liquid from the chunks of veggies.

A mesh sieve will work as long as it’s fine enough, but if you plan to make a lot of blender juices, it’s worth getting a straining bag like the ones used to make almond milk. Made as a big drawstring bag, you can dump all the pulp in there and squeeze out the juice.

Green Milk

Serves 2

With vanilla extract, dates, and almond milk, this recipe offers a tasty way to try green juice without going full-on veggie.

You can start this recipe by soaking the almonds (or other nuts) the day before to aid digestion, but that’s not necessary. Either way they’ll contribute the creaminess of this “milk,” which is blended and then strained.

Goji Detox Tea

Serves 1

For this flavorful herbal tea, start by plumping the goji berries overnight. The dried berries can then be turned into juice by blending them and straining out the pieces.

Use a juicer for the ginger, turmeric, and lemon. Or alternatively, you can steep a blend of turmeric powder, goji powder, and ginger powder. Either way, this tea can be enjoyed hot or iced.

Beet, Apple & Blackberry Juice

Serves 2

It’s no secret that beets are loaded with nutritional benefits, including detoxifying the liver and improving your mood. But not everyone loves their slightly sweet, earthy flavor.

Remedy that with this mixture, which tones down the beets with blackberries and ginger. Apple juice also lends natural sweetness to this healthy juice.

Pumpkin Cranberry Juice

Instead of turning that whole pumpkin into a sugary pie, you can throw it in the juicer.

With this recipe, you’ll still get to enjoy all the flavors of fall – including pumpkin and cranberry – just without the added sugar. It’s one of those sneaky healthy recipes that’s good enough to serve at a party, and you can even give guests the option of adding vodka.

Homemade Coconut Milk

Serves 4

Neither juice nor dairy product, homemade coconut milk falls somewhere between the two. It’s made from a fruit but can be used in place of milk, so no matter what you want to call it, the result is worth whipping up a batch at home.

Coconut milk can be used in everything from tea and coffee to curries and desserts. It’s also a delicious base for ice cream and vegan yogurt.

Pineapple Cucumber Kale Juice

Serves 1

This juice is a refreshing way to start off the day or get an afternoon pick-me-up.

The crisp cucumber and tangy pineapple make this as invigorating as it is hydrating. They also provide just the right flavors to cut the sharpness of kale, a popular superfood for its nutritional benefits.

This kale juice contains an entire day’s worth of copper and is also a good source of iron.

Ginger Pear Juice

Serves 1

Summer isn’t short on inspiration for getting out the juicer. But in the winter, you have to get a little more creative.

Ginger root is a winter staple that’ll add a kick and lots of health benefits to any juice. And since it’s harvested in the late fall, celeriac – another root – is typically available throughout the cold season.

It also makes a great addition to juice by providing calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

Cilantro Cucumber Juice

Serves 1

With lettuce, watercress, and celery, this vegetable juice is like a Mexican salad in a juice glass. And it’s perfect to serve with spicy food.

The cucumber will help you cool off, and the cilantro has a fresh bite that cuts through the heat. Then there’s a pinch of cayenne, so it can substitute for your favorite spicy takeout, either on its own or served with grilled chicken breast or fish.

Superfood Blueberry Juice

Serves 1

Blueberries and cocoa are a great way to hide spinach. And this is more filling than most juices because of the addition of chia seeds.

Those two ingredients make this much more than a liquid shot of sugar. You can run the ingredients through a juicer, although it’s even better to use a high-speed blender designed to extract nutrients.

The blender processes the fruit to be thinner than a smoothie, and then the pulp is filtered out using centrifugal force.

Turmeric Juice

Serves 2

In the last couple years, the benefits of drinking turmeric juice have become more well known. As an anti-inflammatory, it can be used to provide natural relief for ailments like arthritis and even Alzheimer’s.

And like ginger – which is a similar-looking root – it can ease digestive issues. If that’s not enough to convince you to try it, turmeric also helps regulate blood sugar, preventing the insulin resistance that can lead to other health complications like type 2 diabetes.

Spiced Dandelion Berry Bliss

Serves 1

We all know to eat our greens, but do you know to mix up the types of leafy greens you’re eating? Each one offers different nutrients, so it’s good to swap out your lettuce for spinach and kale regularly.

And in the springtime, look for dandelion greens to add to a salad or to throw in your juicer. They’re loaded with vitamin A, antioxidants, iron, potassium, manganese, and other minerals.

Apple Basil Kiwi Juice

Serves 1

Not all green juice has to be packed with kale or spinach. This one gets its color from kiwi fruit and fresh basil instead.

There’s also celery in the mix, and you could use a green apple for a fully green line-up, but you’ll probably want the sweetness from any red variety of apple instead. There’s no limit to what you can blend with kiwi juice – including wheatgrass, citrus, and peaches – so don’t be afraid to experiment.

Grapefruit Mint Juice

Serves 1

Just because juice is green doesn’t mean that it has to taste a certain way. There are countless healthy ingredients that can contribute the chlorophyll to get a bright green color.

Since grapefruit juice can be tart on its own, this recipe combines it with cucumber, lemon, and fresh herbs. So the main flavor isn’t kale or spinach, but citrus and lively mint. There’s also an equal amount of basil, plus cucumber and lemon to balance everything out.

Watermelon Cucumber Juice

Serves 2 / Makes about 4 cups

When you need a refreshing way to stay hydrated in the summer, give this watermelon juice a try. It’s easy, only requiring two ingredients to make.

You can make a juicer-free version in your blender and then separate out the pulp out with a fine cloth or mesh strainer. This recipe will work with any cucumbers, but use round lemon cucumbers if you happen across any in the summer.

Carrot, Radish & Tomato Juice

Serves 1

No matter what you put in your fresh vegetable juice, it’s going to be nourishing. Sticking veggies in your juicer will deliver better nutrition than drinking the bottled stuff.

While it doesn’t contain preservatives, V8 and similar juices are actually cooked, which can cause certain nutrients to break down. To make this fresh alternative, you luckily don’t need 8 different things.

Just swing by the produce section of your grocery store and pick up three common ingredients.

Acai Antioxidant Smoothie

Serves 2

This recipe makes a purple smoothie that’s similar to the antioxidant-rich Jamba juice. It’s full of acai, which naturally boosts energy levels, aids in digestion, and contributes to healthy skin.

But unlike most juice recipes, this one also has lime and raspberry sherbet – a reminder that smoothies, especially the restaurant kind, can basically be dessert.

Cranberry Pomegranate Juice

Serves 2

Cranberry juice is even better with another tart red berry in the mix. Pomegranates are called a superfruit because of the mix of fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants. They’re thought to regulate blood pressure and lower risk of heart disease.

There’s also a pear in here to round out the winter flavors while sweetening this juice up. However, you may also want to add stevia to taste.

Holy Kale Cleanse Juice

Serves 2

If you don’t get out the juicer very often, look for a recipe that covers all your nutritional needs.

Kale is a great base, of course, because it provides so many health benefits. A cup of kale will meet your daily requirements for vitamins A and C. Then add often-overlooked lemon, which should be part of any cleanse for its detoxifying and alkalizing properties, and pineapple, which contains the enzyme to help your body break down proteins.

This juice also has fresh herbs, ginger, and apple cider vinegar – a beneficial additive in its own right.

Wheatgrass Carrot Juice

Serves 2

When you start to feel a cold coming on, make this wheatgrass juice mixture. It’s loaded with vitamins A, C, and E, as well as micronutrients like chlorophyll and beta-carotene.

This immune-boosting juice also contains two apples, which are loaded with the antioxidant quercetin. The fresh mint contributes health benefits too since the menthol can act as a natural decongestant.
