How to Juice Without a Recipe

McKenzie Jones | September 23, 2022

Got yourself a sweet new juicer but don’t know where to start? Don’t stress. This simple 3-step blueprint will help you work with whatever ingredients you have on-hand to deliver the freshest sips your fridge has to offer. 

  1.     Start juicing with just one ingredient. Carrot. Apple. Orange. Celery. You get the idea. Starting simple gives you a sense of how much volume each ingredient creates, and helps you get into the juicing flow.
  2.     Ready to level up? Add a second ingredient. If you’ve been juicing fruit alone, try boosting it with a veggie like cucumber, celery, or romaine lettuce (see our Crunch Time recipe here). If you’ve already been hitting the green stuff, a hint of lemon or lime can add a refreshing tang and a different array of beneficial vitamins.
  3.     Finally, take it to the advanced degree by introducing a flavor-enhancing third ingredient. Herbs and spices – mint, basil, or parsley, fresh ginger, turmeric root, cayenne pepper, etc. – add major personality and nutrition points to your concoctions.

With this template, there’s no limit to the delicious juice combinations you can create. If you’re seeking a bit of  inspiration, we have tons of recipes that will get your juices flowing. 

And finally, don’t forget to save and repurpose your pulp! It’s a fiber goldmine – which is so good for you – and there’s a ton you can do with it: blend it into smoothies, add to muffin and pancake batters, mix into dips – the possibilities are endless!
