Great Juice Recipes for Juicers

You can find all sorts of good juicing recipes on the internet when you begin to juice.  You can find them listed as to the conditions they address and in several other categories.  You’ll have no trouble getting recipes to start with.  But use them as a start.  Part of the fun of juicing is creating your own blends with the things that you like, to address the health issues that you want to address.  So experimentation is the order of the day.

 
Some people have tried to use their blender to do their juicing.  This is a mistake as the two devices have different functions.  A juicer separates the liquid juice from the pulp whereas a blender mixes everything together and cannot separate the juice.  With a juicer you put in the produce peels, seeds, stems and all it will extract the juice and send the pulp to a separate container for disposal.  Trying to do this in a blender will give you a gritty result rather than juice.
 
Now that you understand how juicers are different from blenders you are ready to create your own juice recipes.  You already know the tastes of fruits and vegetables and now you need to use your imagination to combine them.  For example you might mix wheatgrass (which doesn’t taste great) with apple and carrot juice to make a great tasting result.  Strawberries, oranges, and lemons are other good choices to add in.  Green vegetables tend to have a strong taste and putting too much in might give you gas.  For this reason you’ll want to limit green vegetable content to no more than 2 ounces per glass. 
 
Be carefull about juicing bananas and avocados.  These are very soft and can clog the juicer.  Other than that most things can be juiced whole or cut to manageable pieces peel, seeds and all.  Most of the nutrients in citrus fruit is in the peel and the white material that separates the peel from the fruit so you are in for a treat as these nutrients will be new to your diet.
 

Don’t worry about making mistakes.  Mix up the things you like and start by using two or three different fruits and vegetables at a time.  After you get the hang of it you can add more items in.  Juicing lets you consume 100% of the available nutrients so there are many benefits to starting a juicing program.  Vegetables are responsible for healthy tissues and muscles.  They also strengthen your immune system to keep you disease free.
