A Little Bit Of Everything #juice #recipe

So what do you do when you're at the end of your juicing supplies? Throw them all through your juicer and see what you get!


I call this my Kitchen Sink juice, and here's why...

1 tangerine
1 apple
1 pear
1 cup blueberries
2 cups carrots
1/2 lemon

Uhm...yep! All of that in one juice! Start with your softer fruits and follow with the hard ones...so, tangerine, apple, pear, blueberries and carrots. Finish off with your lemon, and then swirl!

With so many fruits and vegetables, there are just so many incredible health properties in this glass. Oh! And get a big glass...this makes about 15oz of juice!

ZING! Lemon Apple Juice #recipe #juice

Ready for a tart and tangy juice recipe?


1 apple
1 pear
1/2 lemon
1 tangerine

This recipe produces about 8oz. of juice, and is great for your immune system as well as to detox and flush your digestive system.

Start with half of your apple, follow with your tangerine, then the rest of your apple. Next, your lemon and all of your pear. Swirl and enjoy!

This juice is definitely tangy, so my preference is to just use half a lemon in this recipe. However, if you're really brave...feel free to use more!

Nectarine #juice #recipe

I was so excited to see stone fruits in the produce section this Spring and Summer! I thought I would branch out of my apple-pear-spinach-carrot-tangerine/orange/tangelo comfort zone and try something a little different.


1 nectarine
2 apples
1 cup red grapes


Rinse your grapes off well, and make sure they are all firm. I had a mushy one in the bunch and it definitely impacted the taste! Alternate your fruit, and end with a quarter of apple.

Apples are great for fiber, Vitamin A and C, and the nectarines are loaded with niacin, calcium and iron. Add in your grapes, and you have the added benefits of copper, magnesium, and vitamins B1 and B2!

Stone fruits like peaches and nectarines are great when you're having digestive issues!

Tangerine Dream #juice #recipe

Loaded with vitamin C, fiber, vitmin A and folic acid, this juice recipe is a great one for your immune system!


1 large tangerine, peeled
1 apple
1 pear
1 cup blueberries

Start by juicing half of your apple or pear, then your tangerine. Push the rest of your apple or pear through, then your blueberries. Remember to always follow a soft fruit or leafy vegetable with a hard fruit of vegetable. End with the rest of your apple or pear.

Swirl, and pour into a glass.

Tip: I love the mason jar style glasses for my juices as they naturally let the juice under the foam to the front when I tilt it. The foam on the juices isn't always the most appetizing, so I usually re-swirl at the end once it separates from the juice below, then down the hatch!

The Doctor Is In #spinach #juice #recipe

Iron stores a little low? Try this iron rich juice recipe!


3 handfuls of baby spinach
2 cups blueberries
1 apple
1 pear

Start with your greens, then push your apple through. Follow with your blueberries and end with your pear. Swirl, and enjoy!

This recipe is rich in iron, so make sure that you only have it once a week. Too much iron in your system and you'll be begging for something fibre rich!

Apple Spinach Strawberry #juice #recipe

Another iron rich juice recipe, that gets balance from fiber, calcium, and vitamin C!


2 handfuls baby spinach
2 cups strawberries
2 apples

Sweet and simple, and this juice has a bit of tang from the strawberries too! Start by juicing a handful of spinach, followed by a half or quarter of apple. Repeat, then juice the rest of your strawberries and apples.

Strawberries have a pretty strong flavor when they're juiced. It's nice and sweet, but can be a little tart as well so be prepared for a bit of tang!

Orange You Glad? #fruit #juice #recipe

Back in the Spring, my citrus bowl was looking a little bare and I needed to use up my ingredients. I knew that I still had an apple or two in the fridge, and that a nectarine would make for an easy juice. Wow!! I wasn't expecting it to be so delicious, and I certainly was not expecting my 3 year old son to ask to try it...and like it!


1 tangelo
1 orange
1 apple
1 nectarine

Peel your citrus and try to leave as much of the white pith on as possible. Core your apple, and pit your nectarine, and yes you can use a peach if you prefer!

Push everything through, always following up citrus pieces with a quarter of apple to make sure that all of the juice gets pushed through.

I'm not typically a fan of pulp, but this juice was just so yummy that the pulp didn't bother me at all. This juice recipe makes approximately 15oz of juice!

Morning Glow #juice #recipe

Get your morning glow on with this delicious, and easy to prepare, juice recipe!


1 apple (cored)
1 nectarine (pitted)
1/2 large navel orange (peeled)
1 1/2 cups baby carrots (rinsed)

I created this recipe when I was 7months pregnant, and it quickly became a favorite. It is sweet, has great nutrients like beta carotene and folic acid, and a lovely finish with the nectarine flavor!

I pushed my juice through in the order that the ingredients are listed above, hard fruits followed by softer ones and then ending with the baby carrots.

With softer fruits or vegetables, and leafy greens too, you want to follow with harder ones to make sure that everything gets pushed through your juicer and you are getting the most out of your produce.

Core, pit, peel and rinse. Those are the only preparation steps for this recipe, which makes it a super easy one! Enjoy the benefits of all of these beautiful ingredients, and get your morning glow!

Sunshine in my Cup #juice #recipe

Sometimes, particularly when the weather is chilly, you need a little sunshine in your cup. Vitamin C, fiber, potassium, folic acid, and all of that good stuff in one glass.


2 apples (cored)
1 large pear (cored)
1 honey tangerine (peel removed)

I've got to say, I really have some to love juicing tangerines specifically. They are so easy to peel, so the prep time is less than most other citrus fruits and most of the white pith stays on the flesh of the fruit.

Anywho! I alternated my fruits, ending with two quarters of apple to make sure all of my tangerine flesh has been pushed through.

This recipe makes approximately 14oz of juice, so it's great on days when all you have time for is a juice on your way out the door. The whole prep-juice-ready process takes approximately 10 minutes start to finish. Instead of reaching for a donut or something that will leave you feeling sluggish, indulge in this super yummy juice recipe!

Bold Beets #raw #juice #recipe


Lacking fiber in your diet? Did you know that beets and apples are packed with it? I used to use beets while making baby food for help with tummy troubles, and used them and apples alot throughout the second half of my pregnancy to keep my body running right!


2 apples (cored)
1 beet
1 large handful baby carrots
1 handful beet greens

First and foremost, you'll want to wash your beet and beet greens really well; they can be really gritty and have that fresh from the garden taste if you don't! Once you've washed your beet, cut off the rind. Core your apples and you're all set.

Push your beet greens through, followed by your beet, carrots and apples. This recipe will yield about 12 oz. of fresh juice.

If the taste is a little strong for you (it was for me), a squirt of fresh lemon will do the trick to brighten it up!

Summer Love #juice #recipe

I have to admit, this recipe was one of those throw-all-the-things-in-the-fridge-in-the-juicer situations, but I absolutely loved every last drop of it and know that you will too.


1 large pear
1 tangelo (peeled)
1/2 lemon (peeled)
1 cup blueberries
2 cups strawberries

Start by juicing your berries, then citrus and end with your pear. The hard pear will ensure that all of the softer fruit gets pushed through your juicer completely.

This recipe makes approximately 12oz of juice, which is really awesome. Your glass will be full to the brim with vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber, calcium, folic acid, niacin, and potassium!

Berry Good #raw #juice #recipe

When berries are in season, and found locally, they are oh so sweet and perfect for juicing! This recipe packs a punch with iron rich spinach and fiber packed apple!


2 apples
2 cups blueberries (rinsed)
3 handfuls strawberries (rinsed, tops removed)
2 large handfuls baby spinach

Start by juicing your baby spinach, followed by two apple halves. This will ensure that the absolute most amount of spinach gets juiced as sometimes it gets stuck. Next, juice your berries and end with the rest of your apple.

Stir and pour into a glass. I found that this recipe made about 8-9oz of fresh juice, perfect for breakfast!

Also...there's 8 servings of fruit and veg in here! Pretty amazing!

Light Leafy Green #juice #recipe

This spring, I started experimenting with juicing different kinds of greens when I ran out of spinach in the fridge. We had a sweet baby green mix of romaine, red oak, green oak, tango, lolla rossa, red leaf, red romaine and green leaf. With just a few handfuls, and some yummy fruits, I created this recipe.



2 apples
1 pear
1 nectarine or peach
3 handfuls of mixed greens

Start by juicing a handful of your greens, followed by chunks of apple and pear. Always follow a leafy or soft ingredient with a harder one to make sure that everything is being pushed through the sieve.

Push your stone fruit through, and then end with apple and pear pieces.

Enjoy!

Beach Babe #raw #vegan #juice #recipe

After a few weeks of creating juices wit the same bases, it was time to branch out. I wanted to create a yummy summer juice recipe that would be awesome in cocktails, as well as delicious on its own.


2 apples
handful strawberries (rinsed and tops removed)
1 tangelo (rind removed, white pith left on)

Never heard of a tangelo? Neither had I but when I saw them in the citrus area of the produce section at the grocery store, I thought...when in Rome!

I juiced everything in the order listed above, no fancy this then that, then more of this and end with this. Straight forward and simple, this juice is sure to delight your tastebuds.

So...what's a tangelo? Well, upon doing some research it is a hybrid citrus fruit that is a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit, which explains for the rich coral color of this yummy juice recipe.

Nutrient wise, you will be getting loads of antioxidants, fiber, vitamin C. You will also be getting potassium, vitamin A, and even some calcium!

Juice up a BIG batch (this recipe makes about 6-8oz) if you're throwing a backyard bash this summer, and set it out with lemonade, tonic water, vodka and rum to create the perfect juice bar! This recipe would also be excellent for mimosa's on the morning of a summer wedding!

Lime and Beet #juice #recipe full of antioxidants!

Not only is this juice tart and tangy, it's full of antioxidants and vitamin C to keep you going throughout your day!



2 pears
3 handfuls of blue berries
1 lime (green rind removed, white pith left)

Always juice your greens first, following them with a hard vegetable or fruit like a pear, apple or carrot. For this recipe, I pushed my beet greens through with pears, followed by my blueberries and finished off with the lime.

It is tart and tangy, definitely will make your cheeks pucker, but it is absolutely delicious!

Citrus Lover #juice #recipe

Today's juice recipe is brought to you by a newfound love of citrus. Previously, I wasn't super down with citrus fruits. From the breakouts to the pulp, they just were'nt my first choice.

Enter pregnancy, and it's a whole different ballgame. Life has changed alot in the past four years (June 13th was Owen's due date!) and I'm so happy to be so much healthier now, especially during this pregnancy. Juicing has provided so many benefits, it's unreal!


1 orange
1/2 lemon
1 apple
1 pear
1 nectarine
1 handful strawberries

To prep: peel the rind from your orange and lemon, core your apple and pear, pit your nectarine, and rinse your strawberries. This sounds like alot, but it really takes under 5 minutes and the benefits far outweigh the work involved.

To juice: toss it all in and juice it! Juice it real good!

Leafy Green #juice #recipe

Good morning all! Ready to start your day with a simple green juice recipe? Here we go!


I know...you're thinking but I thought this was a green juice? It is, I swear!

1 orange
2 apples
1/2 lemon
1 pear
1 cup baby greens

The greens that you choose will impact the color of your juice. I used a sweet baby green mix that had some red lettuce and some green, hence the colour takes more queues from the other ingredients in the recipe.

Start with your greens, then follow with everything else. Swirl, and enjoy!
