Ever since watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead (Parts 1 and 2, I got addicted), I’ve been trying to drink more juices everyday. If you’ve recently become addicted to juicing too, whether that means that you’re only drinking juices, you’re cutting out a few meals and replacing them with juices, or you’re simply drinking a few juices alongside your meals everyday, these juice recipes will keep you interested in juicing and stop you from getting too sick of it too soon!
1. Carrot and Apple Juice
This is one of the only juices that I can drink no matter the time of the day. It’s very easy to make—it’s simply three carrots and two apples. You can make it in a matter of minutes. The taste is so fresh, which is what I love most about it. The carrot and apple combination gives it a crisp flavor that I love whether it’s first thing in the morning or as a late-night snack.
2. Berry Blast
I love sweets with a touch of sour, and when I get a sweet tooth at night, this is what I reach for. Simply put blueberries, grapes, and blackberries in your juicer for a sweet and sour treat. Sometimes, I’ll add ice to make it a little bit colder and taste like a dessert rather than a juice, and if I need an extra nutrition boost, I’ll throw some kale in. I promise, you won’t even taste the difference!
3. Mean Green
If you’ve seen Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, you’ve probably heard of Joe Cross’s notorious Mean Green juice. I’ll be honest; this isn’t my favorite juice, which I attribute to the fact that I’ve never made it with a juicer, only a blender. The Mean Green is comprised of one cucumber, four celery stalks, two apples, six-eight leaves of kale, half a lemon, and a piece of ginger. It’s an easy to pack a punch in the morning!
If you’re having trouble getting used to drinking vegetable juices, make that transition a little bit easier with a juice made solely out of fruit. Simply use one apple, two pears, and a piece of ginger for a sweet-tasting juice!
5. Warrior Princess
This juice sounds weird, but hear me out. To make this juice, take a half of a wedge of red cabbage, half of a small watermelon, two oranges, and half of a fennel bulb. Yes, there are some weird ingredients, but the results are absolutely heavenly!
6. Power Gulp
Like I said, I’m not really a fan of the Mean Green, so finding this recipe instantly became one of my favorite ways to get my greens. The only ingredients are kale, green grapes, cucumbers, and a Granny Smith apple. What a tasty way to drink green juice!
7. Health Boost
Without naming names, there’s a bottled juice that I love to drink when I’m getting sick. However, now that I’m making my own juices, I try to stay away from a lot of the different bottled juice brands. I was on the hunt for a similar juice recipe for a long time, and this is what I found. It’s simply apples, pears, cherries, and oranges, for a juice that’s sure to fill you up with a ton of vitamins that will help fight off illnesses!
