We Are Juicers Now.

April 13, 2010

Help! We got a fancy new juicer recently and are looking for tips..... We like vegetable juices primarily, but a little fruit here and there to make it taste good is fine. We love beets, greens, ginger, everything really. Any good recipes/combinations?

  2. Which juicer did you get? We are all addicted to juicing over here! My kids favorite recipe is posted here on my blog

    lately though, I have been loving cucumber lemonade-- a whole large cucumber, 2 peeled lemons and an apple for sweetness. So refreshing in the hot weather!

  4. Carrot/ginger/green apples and carrot/orange (or tangerine) are our go-tos. Also, plain watermelon, sprinkled with black pepper. And now I'm pining for summer.
    We don't do veggies as much as we probably should, but we do eat lots of them at meals. Mostly, we juice whatever fruit is around, then throw in some herbs: cucumber and pineapple get mint, most everything else gets basil.

  5. I've been enjoying celery, apple, and a small piece of fresh turmeric.

    My mom makes the green lemonade when greens are in season here, and it's delicious!

  6. kale, apple, ginger is my families favorite. I blend my greens with a bit of water then strain out the pulp. It's a bit more work but you get a lot more juice.

  9. Loving these ideas! I do 1/2 green apple, 1/2 pear, handful of parsley, 1 carrot, 1 celery, 1/2 cucumber and ginger. Wow...that looks like a lot of stuff, but it is good!!! Lemon is a nice addition, too.

  11. This winter, cabbage and apples was quite a hit at our house. For those needing a recommendation for a juicer we have a Breville and we love it. As a matter of fact, we got it a few months ago because we have a Breville citrus squeezer which is absolutely fantastic. We use it everyday.

  14. Loving the ideas from your readers, I must get our juicer out of the cupboard again, it is just such a big job to clean it and put it back together each time.

  15. Green Goddess Elixer -- my current favorite! I'll make in the morning and drink throughout the day:
    1 ripe pineapple
    2 apples
    1/2 lime (including peel - wash first)
    1/2 lemon (including peel - wash first)
    1 bag organic spinach
    5 sticks celery
    1 whole cucumber (Including peel - wash first)

    Sparkly Pineapple Punch:
    1 ripe pineapple
    16 strawberries
    Sparkling water

    Juice the pineapple and strawberries. Pour into 2-3 large wine glasses. Top off with sparkling water. To add a touch of "fancy" (especially fun for a garden party) decorate with a fresh strawberry or pineapple ring, or make some cute fruity ice-cubes with raspberries or small pieces of strawberries inside.

    Pine-apple-berry Juice
    1/2 pineapple
    Handful of raspberries
    1 apple

    Best Beetjuice
    1 beet
    4 medium carrots
    3 oranges (peeled)
    6 apples
    Small bunch of parsley
    4 strawberries (these make all the difference)

    Better than V8
    2 tomatoes
    1 celery
    1/2 apple
    2 carrots
    Parsley

    Slim-down Treat
    5 carrots
    1 apple
    1/2 cucumber
    1 celery
    1/2 beet
    1 inch slice of fresh ginger
