1. Naturally Sweet Lemon Ginger Power Beet Juice

I’ve learned to really appreciate the flavors of beets and often try new juice and green smoothie recipes with beets as a key ingredient.

Beets are loaded with essential nutrients such as folate, potassium, iron, and vitamin C, but most of all, they give you that instant energy boost. This is why beetroot juice is my go-to drink before I do my workouts.

Beets have a naturally sweet and earthy taste that blends perfectly with the potent flavors of lemon and ginger. The cucumber in this recipe at Inspired Taste adds mineral-rich water, keeping the flavors well in place.

There is no need to add more fruits to this recipe as the beets already bring in enough sweetness to your juice. Beets are one of the best vegetables to juice because they taste so sweet and mix well with other veggies.

 

Ingredients (yields 2 glasses):

  • 2 Medium-sized beets
  • 1 Medium-sized cucumber
  • 1 Small piece of fresh ginger (1 inch)
  • 1 Medium-sized lemon

2. Freshly Squeezed Orange Carrot Juice

This freshly squeezed orange carrot juice is a bright, refreshing drink that’s loaded with vitamins, minerals, and immune-boosting goodness.

Mixing carrot and orange juice gives you a delicious blend of sweet citrus with the light, naturally sweet taste of carrots.

Not only does this combo taste amazing, but it’s also perfect for boosting your immune system during those chilly winter months. You can find this recipe over at Alphafoodie.

 

Ingredients (yields 2 glasses):

  • 1.2 Pounds carrots
  • 1.2 Pounds oranges (about 4 medium-sized ones)

3. Strawberry Lemon Juice

Making this homemade fresh strawberry juice is a breeze and oh-so-delicious. Just grab three ingredients and your blender!

This drink over at Spice Up The Curry strikes the perfect balance between sweet and tangy, with a refreshingly delightful flavor. Whether you’re looking for a non-alcoholic drink for adults or something tasty for the kids, this juice is the ideal choice.

And guess what? It’s not just for summer; you can enjoy it any time of the year. Plus, it’s way healthier than those sugary, store-bought sodas or juices.

 

Ingredients (yields 4 glasses):

  • 4 Cups strawberries
  • 2 Tsp lemon juice (or lime juice)
  • 2-4 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Cup water (cold)

This refreshing summer drink is super simple, with just four ingredients and water, and it only takes five minutes to make!

It’s not just perfect for those hot days; this cucumber juice is packed with nutrients and is great to enjoy all year long.

All you need is cucumber, celery, mint, a touch of sugar if you like it sweet (totally optional), lemon, and water. Try this recipe from The Dinner Bite, and you won’t regret it!

 

Ingredients (yields 2 glasses):

  • 2 Whole cucumbers (chopped)
  • 2 Stalks of celery (trimmed and chopped)
  • Few mint leaves
  • Juice of 1 lemon (or use as desired)
  • 1 Tbsp sugar (optional)

5. Apple, Beetroot and Ginger Juice

The deep pink color of this energizing breakfast juice is to die for. Beetroot is certainly not the easiest ingredient to juice, as it often requires a bit of manual work.

But the nutritional benefits of this red vegetable make it all worthwhile. The added ginger gives this juice an extra flavor that works well with the sweetness of the beetroot and apples.

Drizzle and Dip have created this simple yet very potent juice recipe that you should drink slowly to enjoy. The foamy layer on top makes you think you’re drinking a bright-colored cappuccino!

 

Ingredients (yields 3 glasses):

  • 2 Large beetroot (approx 400g)
  • 1 Small piece of ginger (1 inch)
  • 5 Medium-sized cucumbers
  • 6 Apples

6. Turmeric Ginger Carrot Juice

One of my favorite spices is turmeric, not just because of its rich flavors but also because of its powerful nutritional benefits.

If you don’t include turmeric very often in your diet, you’re missing out on a lot of goodness. In that case, I recommend taking turmeric supplements as they can provide various benefits.

Ginger is another of my favorite ingredients to add to my juices, as it’s simply the easiest way to enjoy its benefits.

The Breakfast Criminals have come up with a very unique and tasty juice recipe that contains both turmeric and ginger, mixed with apples and carrots.

If you can replace your morning orange juice with this nutritional powerhouse drink, your day can’t go wrong.

 

Ingredients (yields 1 large glass):

  • 5 Medium-sized carrots (peeled)
  • 2 Apples (halved and cores removed)
  • 1 Small piece of fresh ginger (1 inch)
  • 1/8 Teaspoon turmeric

7. Easy Celery Juice

Celery juice first thing in the morning as breakfast may not be for everyone, but I love it because celery is one of my go-to vegetables at any time of day.

This particular recipe can be prepared with a juicer as well as with a blender, and with literally only two ingredients, it is as simple as it gets.

Carrie over at Clean Eating Kitchen is the creator of this nourishing, fresh, and delicious breakfast juice recipe that has fast become one of my favorites.

It’s always tempting to throw sweet fruits in your juicer, as we all love a delicious drink with lots of sweet, fruity flavors. But we shouldn’t ignore greens as they provide us with the most nutrients.

The trick is to get the balance right between flavor and nutrients.

This super-nutritious juice recipe does indeed have all the best flavors and contains a good variety of different types of greens, such as kale, spinach, and celery, mixed up with a bunch of green apples.

I’ve tried it several times now, and it’s fantastic. The portion sizes in this recipe are big, so you can store the juice in your refrigerator for a few days.

  • 2 Bunches of (lacinato) kale
  • 2 Bunches of spinach
  • 5 Medium-sized cucumbers
  • 6-8 Green apples

  1. Thank you for these great recipes. I am looking forward to try all of them in the coming weeks. This is my first time making a real effort in taking the first step towards juicing. I am an active male in my early 50’s, but my energy levels have dropped dramatically in the last few months and I don’t like it, so wish me luck.

  2. I love this little collection of breakfast juice recipes! My favorite is The Ultimate Green Juice, but that’s because I am a complete green juicing nut. 🙂 I think your use of the green apples in this juice was a good way of adding some sweetness without just dumping a bucket of sugar into it. I also liked the Turmeric Ginger Carrot Juice especially because it is an excellent anti-inflammatory juice recipe, and that’s something a lot of us can use in this day and age. I’m going to tweet this out, and I wish you all the best! 🙂
