Juicing Recipes: Classic Vegetable Juice

Benefits of juicing goes beyond weight loss.  Each and every vegetable and fruit boasts its own nutrient packed benefit for your body and overall heath and wellness; and when combined with other [fruits and vegetables] it packs an even greater health punch. As I mentioned last week in my article, #15byChristmas, juicing for health, I recommend a starter juicing book for those new the world of juicing,  The Everything Juicing Book. This book details benefits of most common fruits and vegetable as well as the outcome of combining certain produce together. It’s always best to arm yourself with knowledge and know why you’re doing certain things in a certain way, it makes the success of the outcome more understandable and attainable. I add jalapeno peppers 1-2 depending on the size, to most of my juices. I like my juices hot & spicy and its add tremendous flavor and depth to the overall juice. Most times I garnish my juice, I like the extra added touch. I personally freestyle when making my juice. I do not follow a recipe with said amounts. Rule of thumb, if you keep your ingredients to 1-2 pieces, stalks, cups etc…with approximately 6 ingredients you’ll have about 8-12 ounces of juice. If you add more ingredients and/or larger portion sizes you’ll make more juice. Depending on how much juice you want to make adjust your amounts. For nutritional information on fruits and vegetables visit the United States Department of Agriculture National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference
Today’s recipe is the Classic Vegetable Juice.
  • Carrots – 2
  • Celery – 3 stalks
  • Cucumber – 1
  • Parsley – 2 handfuls
  • Green Pepper – 1
  • Spinach – 1 cup
  • Tomatoes – 3 large
  • Process all ingredients in a juicer, garnish with vegetables and serve
