I think the worst I’ve had was a recipe that called for sweet potato and beets!! YUCK…tasted like sweeten dirt!

Vegetable Juice Recipe
Carrot Juice

Here’s my favorite carrot juice recipe. I make this juice almost every morning. Very quick and easy:
Ingredients

1 lbs large carrots (washed and peeled)
1/2 lemon (peeled)
few green leafs such as red lettuce or carrot greens
1 apple
Directions

Put all ingredients in your juicer. (A centrifuge juicer is easiest for carrots.) Mix. Drink immediately.

I peel the carrot for taste (otherwise it tastes too earthy). I find this recipe sweet enough, but if you’re a beginner juicer or have a sweet tooth, add an apple for extra sweetness.

The health benefits of carrot juice? It provides Vitamin A, B Vitamins, Vitamin E and many minerals (including calcium). Great for pregnant and nursing mothers, eyesight, bones and teeth, liver and nails, skin and hair as well as helping in breast and skin cancer prevention.
Vegetable Juice Recipe
Tomato Juice

Are you looking for the best of all tomato juice recipes! This one is! You can juice the tomatoes in a juicer but if you have a high speed blender – such as a Vitamix or Blendec Blender – and you like more “body” to your juice, you might like to use the blender in stead.

Here’s the recipe for your own V8 juice: quick, easy and yummy!
Ingredients

3 cups chopped tomatoes
1 stalk celery
1 cucumber
3 drops stevia (optional)
1/2 teaspoon himalaya sea salt
pepper
cayenne pepper
Directions

Juice the tomatoes, celery, cucumber in your juicer.

Add drops stevia if you like a sweeter taste, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste.

If you like you can also add a 1/4 onion, fresh oregano and basil and red bell pepper

Mmmmm so good!
Vegetable Juice Recipe
Spinach Juice

This juice recipe is perfect for starters of veggie juicing. It’s soft and sweet. Very tasty. Not bitter or strong at all.
Ingredients

1 bunch spinach
2 apples
1/2 lemon, peeled (optional)
Directions

Put all ingredients in your juicer. A twin gear juicer such as the Green Star Juicer is best for extracting greens.

Mix well and enjoy.

You don’t have to add the lemon, it’s good enough without it. But I just love lemon, so I always add a little.
Jamba Juice Recipe
Wheat Grass Juice w Orange

Jamba Juice has a great wheat grass juice recipe: They serve their wheat grass with a slice of orange. I really like that idea. It makes the wheat grass a little fancier. And in case you don’t like the taste of wheat grass – after finishing your juice, you can take a bite of the orange!

Wheat grass is so good for you! It has most of the vitamins and minerals needed for human health. It is a complete protein with about 30 enzymes. It has up to 70% chlorophyll (which builds the blood). It’s an excellent source of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. And it’s one of the best alkaline foods.

Vegetable Juice Recipe
Cabbage Juice

ph and weight loss

Cabbage juice is known for its ability to heal peptic ulcers. It’s is full of vitamin K, C, fiber, manganese, B6, Folic Acid, Omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, phytonutrients and anti-oxidants. And very low in calories.

Cabbage is so good for you. Recent studies show that people who eat most cabbage have a significantly lower risk of colon, lung, breast and prostate cancer. Even compared to other people that eat lots of veggies.

Red cabbage has even more nutrients and protects against Alzheimer’s disease (Food Science and Technology).

Juicing cabbage is a superb way to get the best out of your cabbage. Cabbage provides anti-carcinogenic glucosinolates (anti cancer fighters). When you cook cabbage, you kill the special myrosinase enzyme that makes the cabbage so healing, thus making cabbage less effective as anti cancer food.

Drinking it straight might be a little too much in the beginning. Then, simply mix it with carrot juice. Start with juicing carrots. Every day add some cabbage leafs until you’re used to the taste. (The taste isn’t that strong.)

You may also try other cruciferous family members of cabbage such as kale, broccoli, and collard greens.
