Is your morning routine lacking a little pizazz? Bring some zing into your day with fresh fruit juice. When your friends ask how you got that spring in your step, you can share these 3 recipes for juice made from fresh fruit.
A Tip From Fresh Fruit Juice Pros
There's more to juicing than just tossing random fruit into the juicer and hoping for the best. A little bit of prep work goes a long way. Follow these pre-juicing steps:
- Peel your citrus fruit. Citrus peels are great for cooking and cocktails, but they'll add an unpleasant bitterness to your juice.
- Chop, chop! Most home juicers have small food chutes that whole fruits and vegetables can obstruct. Protect your machine and cut your fruits into quarters.
- Remove pits and seeds. Apples, pears, and stone fruits like peaches and cherries make great additions to your juice regimen. However, their seeds and pits can be toxic if crushed (like, in a juicer!).
Now that you're ready to juice like a pro, here are 3 easy fresh fruit juice recipes featuring stellar citrus.
1. Green Boost
This sweet and sour green juice features our gorgeous Persian limes. They are seedless, which saves you some work. Combined with our Clementine mandarins (which, by the way, you can grow at home) and some fibrous greens, this is a filling drink that'll keep you energized and satiated well into your day. Made with ingredients that are grown year-round in the USA, you can enjoy a Green Boost on a gloomy winter day. Peel, chop, and pop in the juicer—voila!
- 2 Clementine mandarins
- 2 Persian limes
- 2 celery stalks
- 4 kale leaves
2. Root and Fruit Zinger
You might be surprised to see radishes featured here. We love root veggies like radishes because they're rich in vitamins and minerals, and they really complement sweet and tangy citrus flavors. Don't forget to peel those blood oranges!
- 1 bunch of radishes
- 2 blood oranges
- 2 celery stalks
- 1 large beet
3. Blushing Blend
Our Texas Blush grapefruit is a renowned Super Red variety and they really pack a punch. Did you know that grapefruit is bursting with health benefits, like important antioxidants that protect your cells from harmful free radicals? Buzz this blend in your juicer and your body will thank you.
