Juicing Recipes

The best selection of juices comes in nature's own containers: fresh fruits and vegetables. Fresh juice is loaded with cancer-fighting phytochemicals and vitamins, in a state easily absorbed by the body.

Did you know?  1 cup of carrot or celery juice provides most of the same nutrients found in 5 cups of those same vegetables chopped up.

To begin juicing, you'll need a juice extractor.

There are 2 types, citrus juicers and juice extractors.

Be sure to read through the information provided with your juicer to become familiar with how your equipment works as well as the recipes included.  Be sure to thoroughly clean your juicer with hot soapy water after each use


Carrot -- Apple Juice
3-4 medium carrots
1 medium Granny Smith apple
Carrot juice is surprisingly sweet and goes well with the tartness of the apples. When buying Granny Smiths, choose firm ones; they will produce a clearer juice.
