Homemade Juice - So Easy!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I bought a juicer earlier this year to help with triathlon training/ performance.  At first I figured it'd be a disgusting slime that I'd have to choke down.  Little did I suspect that homemade juice can be delicious!  I run a Breville juicer and stick with what I call "juice-able" fruits - oranges, apples, carrots, strawberries.  It took some time to dial in a good, healthy recipe.  Lately I've been rolling with this - 2 large carrots, 2 mandarin oranges, 1 apple, 3-5 strawberries. 

Probably the most positive result of the juicing is a feeling of satisfaction that lasts several hours.  No munchies, no hunger, just solid, steady energy!

Anybody have any wonderful recipes to share?

Congrats on the juicer, I am addicted as well, I always use peaches, mangos, and oranges as a good start base

One thing I've noticed with Juicing is it can get pricey reallllly quickly! Since one pound of apples(or w.e. fruit you're juicing) doesn't end up making a relative amount of juice servings. How are you balancing that with your budget?

I have to keep it simple. To many fruits in my juice adds up quickly.

I don't have any specific recipes but I do make a vegetable juice every day.

 

I'm always mixing up the different vegetable I include. I regularly include carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, and spinach. If you're just starting out I would try mixing it with vanilla coconut milk at about 50/50. Before you know it you'll be lowering the amount of milk you use and be drinking pure vegetable juice.
