6 Energizing Breakfast Juice Recipes to Kickstart Your Day

If you usually need a bit of time in the morning to really wake up, don’t worry, you’re not alone. And that first cup of coffee just can’t come soon enough!

I’ve been replacing coffee with nutritious and energizing juices and green smoothies in the mornings, and while it wasn’t easy in the beginning (I was a serious coffee addict!), my body and mind are now very much used to it.

It now feels great to start the day with a glass filled with healthy nutrients giving me an instant energy boost that lasts for hours. And coffee? I still love it, especially on a lazy Sunday morning, but nothing beats starting my workday with a fresh juice.

Having a quality juicer in your kitchen that performs well and is easy to clean, makes the whole juicing experience so much more fun. I’ve tried and tested many recipes, some work well and others just don’t, but I recommend to always find a good balance between sweet fruits and nutritious vegetables. Experiment with different ingredients and recipes to work out how best to please your taste buds!

 
 

6 Breakfast Juice Recipes for That Instant Energy Boost

Here are 6 recipe ideas for delicious and nutritious breakfast juices. They will give you that much needed energy boost in the morning when you most need it.

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. Which 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 powerful flavors of lemon and ginger. The cucumber in this recipe at Inspired Taste adds mineral-rich water, keeping the flavors well in place. There’s really no need to add more fruits to this recipe as the beets already bring in enough sweetness.

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

2. The Ultimate Green Juice

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.

The Holistic Chef has created a super nutritious juice recipe that also has the best flavors. It contains a good variety of different types of greens, such as kale, spinach and celery, mixed up with a bunch of green apples, yum! I’ve tried it several times now and it’s amazing. The portion sizes in this recipe are big, so you can store the juice in your Refrigerator for a few days.

 
Ingredients:
 
  • 2 Bunches of (lacinato) kale
  • 2 Bunches of spinach
  • 5 Medium-sized cucumbers
  • 6-8 Green apples
  • 1/2 Bunch of celery
  • 1 Head romaine lettuce
 

3. 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 amazing health benefits of this red vegetable make it all worthwhile. The added ginger gives this juice 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 really enjoy. The foamy layer on top makes you think that you’re actually drinking a bright-colored cappuccino!

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

4. Turmeric Ginger Carrot Juice

One of my favorite spices is turmeric, not just because of its rich flavors, but more so because of its amazing health benefits. If you don’t really include turmeric very often in your diet, you’re missing out on a lot of goodness. In that case, I strongly recommend taking turmeric supplements.

Ginger is another one of my favorite ingredients to add to my juices as it’s simply the easiest way to enjoy its health 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 just can’t go wrong.

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

5. Fat Dissolver Juice

This energizing juice recipe by Linda Wagner has an amazingly refreshing taste that will make you want to keep drinking it the whole day. Loaded with fat burning fruits and vegetables, this juice will give your metabolism a huge boost.

The fresh mint in this recipe mixes really well with the powerful grapefruit and oranges, and the romaine lettuce adds a bit of green goodness without affecting the flavors too much.

 
Ingredients:
 
  • 1 Pink grapefruit (peeled)
  • 2 Oranges (peeled)
  • 1 Bunch of fresh mint
  • 1 Head romaine lettuce
 

6. Breakfast Zinger Juice

This original breakfast zinger juice recipe by Vitamix is technically a green smoothie recipe using a blender, but you can just as easily try it out with your juicer.

The rich blend of energizing fruits and veggies in this delicious drink will keep you going for many hours after you drink it as your breakfast in the morning. The coconut water is optional, but works surprisingly well with the dominant flavors of the lemons and beets.

 
Ingredients:
 
  • 2 Cups (480 ml) coconut water
  • 2 Lemons (seeded and halved)
  • 2 Carrots (halved)
  • 2 Apples (seeded, cored, quartered)
  • 2 Beets (quartered)

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! 🙂
