Juice Juice Juice!
It's everywhere right now, isn't it.
I've been juicing for a year now, and we have loved coming up with new concoctions by experimenting with different fruits and vegetables.
I don't follow alot of "recipes" any more--I usually just look in my fridge and see what I can throw in. Some turn out awesome, some just ok, and some turn out muddy brown but taste so good.
I often get questions like this:
"How do you know what amounts of fruits/veggies to use?"
It all depends on what YOU like. Play around with different amounts--always start with less, and you can build up from there.
Beets, Kale, and Grapefruit can be strong and overpowering (I like strong and overpowering, but if you don't, start small)
Carrots, pears, and apples add sweetness.
Cucumbers have high water content so they will mellow out your juice.
Ginger adds a nice zing but it only takes a little piece.
I always take the pulp from my greens and saute them in some olive oil and garlic--so tasty.
Carrot pulp is great to throw into soup.
I've also just recently started stirring extras into my juice after I make it--like almond milk or chia seeds.
The best way to figure out what you like is to juice everything in sight.....really.
Here are 12 different recipes to get you going--add in a little of this and a little of that and come back and share your favorites!
