3 Easy Vegetable Juice Recipes

Vegetable Juice RecipesWhether you’re just beginning with juicing or you simply want an easy recipe that will provide you with the nutrition and taste that you’re craving, it’s important to have a few on hand that don’t take a lot of ingredients or preparation.

Here are just three great recipes I love when I’m looking for something to drink right now.

Sweet Minty Green

1 green apple
1 lemon
4 celery stalks
2 medium-large carrots
6-10 stems parsley
6-8 stems mint leaves

There are a lot of fantastic benefits that come with this recipe. For one, if you use a green apple and carrots you’ll get plenty of sweetness without a whole lot of actual sugar, so it’s good for people on low sugar diets. The parsley is also great at contributing to the regulation of blood sugar. If you’re not worried about sugar, use a different apple. The celery gives the drink a nice texture, the lemon makes the flavours pop, and the mint is just a nice little addition to the whole thing.

What I think I like best about this drink, though, is that it is remarkably filling. A glass of it can keep me going for two or three hours without feeling hungry and gives me plenty of energy to work with, another result of the parsley. It’s my favorite to drink just before working out.

Power Booster

6-7 cups of baby spinach
1 lemon, unpeeled
2 Macintosh (or other sweet) apples
1/3 of an Italian cucumber
Several Romaine lettuce leaves
About a knuckle of ginger
2-3 cloves garlic (optional)

This drink is absolutely packed with great ingredients that will do a fantastic job of giving you energy and getting your muscles working at their peak physical capabilities. The spinach provides you with so many of the nutrients that you need in order to function during the day and the apples give it a sweetness that makes drinking this juice a treat.

The ginger and the garlic are the really surprising parts, however. You get a nice little kick if you decide to use both that will wake you right up.

Green Cooler

8 large kale leaves
1.5-2 cups spinach
12 strawberries
1 lime, unpeeled
2 green apples
6-8 stems mint leaves
1 knuckle ginger (optional)

Perfect for a hot summer day, this drink is nice and refreshing. The kale and spinach give you the nutritional punch that you need and the strawberries are a unique flavor that really shines through, especially when served chilled.
