    I can’t wait to try your recipes they all sound so great! My mother is 83 and we started her on juice about 2 months ago. She’s gotten off her fluid pills and diabetes pills completely and has lost almost 20 lbs. She’s also able to walk some again which she hasn’t been able to do in years. So yeah Juicing is a miracle.. You said we could post our favorite recipes so this is the one my mother credits with changing her life.. I tweaked one I found online so the basic recipe is someone else s but I added some of my own touches to it.

    3 carrots
    1/2 cucumber
    1/2 yellow onion
    1 stick celery
    2 garlic cloves
    2 apples
    1/4 pineapple
    1 lime peeled
    1/2 lemon peeled if it’s waxed
    1/2 avacado
    handful spinach
    handful romaine
    large chunk brocholi stem
    large slice red cabbage
    three shakes lousiana hot sauce
    2 shakes worchester sauce
    1 tsp spirulina
    1 tsp wheatgrass
    ice
    Juice all the veggies and fruits then add them to the avocado and the rest of the stuff in a blender with ice and let it run until it’s well mixed.

    Enjoy

  • Nice recipes, I’m partial to ones with beet in them myself. It’s funny because I thought they’d be gross before I tried them!

    April 22, 2013
    • Hi Nella,

      Thanks. :) I’m right there with you. I thought for sure the raw beets would be kinda gross, but I love ‘em.

    great thank you! I’m new to juicing so any tips are great! I’ve spent the morning reading anything i can about it. My juicer JUST arrived in the mail this very minute and i can’t wait to try it out. Thank you!

    • Congrats Heather, you’re going to have fun making up new concoctions. ;) If you’re stuck on flavor combos, try Googling juice bars. You’ll see what they’re serving and use that as a guidemap for making up your own. Let me know when you come up with some that you like. I’m always looking for new flavors!

    how do you drink these? three times a day? Snacks? Are certain juices better in the morning or evening?

    March 12, 2013
    • Hi Heather,

      I typically drink one of these as a snack. There are some, who drink these juices exclusively for several days in a row as a cleanse.

      I’m no juicing expert, but juices with more fruit in them release a good amount of sugar into your system right away (because there’s no fiber to slow down the rate of absorption). Those you would probably want to drink earlier in the day. The fresher the fruits and vegetables you use in these, the better. If you make them ahead of time, you can store them for 24 – 72 hours (depending on the type of juicer you use) and retain almost all of the nutrients in the juice. Cold pressed juices, or those juiced in a masticating juicer retain nutrients longer. Your standard juicer, with a grating plate and spinning motion (which is what I have) hold their nutrients for 24 hours.

      I hope you enjoy these juices as much as I have. Let me know which one is your favorite. ENJOY!

  • Let me tell you about my surprise this morning:)) I started the day with the Lemon Ginger Zing and the Beet Street juices. I knew the ginger one would have some heat, just didn’t expect this much. WOW!!! Next time I wake up lacking energy that’s the one I’m making:) It wakes every cell in the body. The beet one was lovely, but the ABC was better:)

    February 17, 2013
    • Well Goooooood Morning Adriana! :)

      I’m glad you like the juices. Yes, that Ginger Zing a sneaky little one isn’t it? You should try the sweet potato/ginger combo. It’s a bit mellower, but still has the heat. ENJOY!

      February 17, 2013
  • I’ve just finished the ABC 123 juice, it was super delicious. I love beet juices and this is definitely one I’ll be making again. Thank you for the recipe:)

  • I made the Purple Pleaser this morning and it was so good! I have eaten cabbage salad all my life, so I wasn’t sure what to expect from the juice in terms of taste. All the flavours were balanced and loved that I was able to taste each one in the juice. I’d like to try it with green apples instead or red, for a less sweet taste. Next is the ABC 123 juice:) Thank you again for the recipes.

  • The green apple/lemon version was soooooo good, I’ve just finished 2 cups of juice. I used 2 medium Bramley apples and 1 medium lemon, and left out the cinnamon – so refreshing! Now that I’ve got a taste of raw sweet potato I’m definitely going to be juicing it again.

    I’ve been trying to find turmeric root here in London, because I’ve heard and read about its fantastic health benefits and teeth whitening properties (dried powder works too, but not as well as the fresh). Now I have another reason to want it:) Until then, I can’t wait for the purple magic:) Will let you know how I like it.

    January 18, 2013
    • Adriana, I’m going to try it with green apples tomorrow. About the turmeric – I’m checking with some friends of mine in London to see if they have any recommendations on where to find fresh turmeric. So far, I’ve got nothing. But if I’m able to find a source I’ll email you. :)

  • I was so eager to try the juices and this evening I finally made the Spicy Sweet Potato one. For long I had been curious how raw sweet potato would taste, now I know:) I loved everything about this juice, especially the ginger heat and the touch of cinnamon. And the sweet potato didn’t taste as sweet as I had expected, for a moment I thought the juice would be too sweet, with added carrots and apple, but it was just right. I have the other half of the potato kept for tomorrow and I’m thinking of trying the juice with green apples and a little bit of lemon as well, can’t wait to try the combination. Next on the list is the Purple Pleaser, it sounds absolutely delish and it’s a great motivation to try another veggie in liquid form:) I am so grateful for your generosity in sharing your recipes, thank you! I’ll be back;)

    January 17, 2013
    • Adriana I am so happy you liked the juice. I was as skeptical as you on that one. But I find myself making it all the time. Wait until you see the amazing purple color of that cabbage drink – it’s gorgeous! I hope you can find some fresh (or frozen) tumeric. If you like the spicy sweet potato, I think you’ll really enjoy the turmeric juice. I know it sounds weird too…but it tastes fantastic.

      Please let me know how your juice tastes with the green apples. I’ve been meaning to try it, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. CHEERS!

  • SunRae

    where did you find all your fruits and veggies for such a low cost?

    January 15, 2013
    • I got them from Sprouts market. But based on the prices at my local farmer’s market, the tab wouldn’t have been much higher. The key is to buy seasonal produce. CHEERS!

      January 15, 2013
  • All the 7 juices look and sound fantastic! I love the names you gave them, so catchy:) The Golden Tonic is very intriguing, I wonder how fresh turmeric tastes. Thank you so much for sharing the recipes, I’m planning to try them all.

    January 14, 2013
    • Thanks Adriana!

      The spicy sweet potato is my favorite, but the Golden Tonic is right up there. Turmeric has a very subtle flavor, but when you taste the fresh root in this juice, you’ll def be able to taste it more in your food, and it won’t just be that seasoning you add for color. CHEERS!

  • Wow your photos are GORGEOUS and I am diggin the vibe of the site. Yummy photo of “your man”.

  • I love this post! The pictures are gorgeous and the juice blends sound amazing. I do not have the will power to do a juice cleanse, but I certainly can enjoy one of these bad boys every day!

    January 11, 2013
    • Thanks Laura,

      That’s one of the things I like about juicing. You don’t have to live on them exclusively. I like to have one as a mid-afternoon snack.

      January 12, 2013
  • I am trying to read the word, I really am but I just so distracted by your gorgeous stemware! Happy New Year. XOGREG

    • Thanks Greg,

      I have amassed quite the collection. I just don’t want to be anywhere near my storage area in the event of an earthquake! It’s been far too long…we need to get together. Besides, I have some Nocino to share with you. ;)
