Got juice? You can use juicing (either in your juice machine or your blender with a strainer) to make healthy and delicious drinks and get those vitamins into your body. Check these recipes out!
(Recommended: Organifi Green Juice to Supercharge Your Metabolism)
This juice doesn’t require the use of a juicer, because watermelon is naturally so watery! In your blender, you’ll blitz up a watermelon with lime juice. If you think that’ll make more juice than you need, feel free to halve the recipe. Or double it for a party!
2. Creamy Homemade Orange Julius
Cool, creamy, and frothy, this Orange Julius copycat is sure to please every time. There’s something about the way this juice gets blended up that makes it so tasty you’ll want to have it every day. Plus you know everything that goes into it, unlike what you get in the mall.
3. Four Juice Recipes and Juicing Tips
Did you know that if you’re just starting out and don’t know what goes well together, you can keep your juice tasting (and looking) great by keeping like colors together? It’s like laundry! Well, actually it’s nothing like laundry. You’ll just have to read for yourself.
4. Rhubarb and Pomegranate Lemonade
This lovely spring drink can be made without a juicer by using your blender and then straining. If you want to use your juicer, juice the first four ingredients and then add the rest of the ingredients to the finished juice. We don’t want to waste any maple or vanilla in the pulp!
5. Green Fiesta Juice
This juice is a lovely bright green color and is totally packed with nutritious ingredients like kale, romaine, cucumber, celery, bell pepper, ginger, and others. You can make it in your juicer, or you can follow the instructions on how to make it in a blender.

6. Cucumber Lime Electrolyte Refresher
This juice is a great replacement for sports drinks, and it’s such a lovely lime green color that I bet you could pass it off at the kids’ soccer practice as one and no one would even know the difference! With coconut water, cucumber, and lime, it’s a great electrolyte replacer to keep everyone well hydrated.
7. Carrot Orange Juice
This happy, sunny juice is perfectly sweet with carrots and oranges, and it’s so easy to make because those are your only ingredients. If you’re feeling like you want an extra zing, or you feel a cold coming on, try adding a chunk of ginger root to the juicer. It’s lovely with orange and carrot.
8. Carrot Celery Lemonade
Don’t expect this drink to taste like lemonade! It isn’t so sweet, but it does have a natural sweetness from the carrots and is super-refreshing thanks to the celery. You only need three ingredients, and you can make this one in your Vitamix or your juicer.
9. Minty Melon Cocktails (or Mocktails)
You can make this happy cocktail with honeydew melon, cucumber, mint, and tequila or gin. If you’re not feeling boozy or you want to serve to kids, feel free to mix the finished juice with seltzer water, or just have it plain as “shots.”

10. Delicious Soothing Morning Juice
This is an easy low-oxalate morning drink made from cucumbers, Granny Smith apples, lemon, and raw honey. It’s soothing and tasty, while still providing a nutrients boost, even if you’re one who doesn’t like to juice bitter greens or needs to ease into them.

12. Immunity Juice
Want to build up your immune system or fight off that infection you can feel coming on? Give yourself some support with this thick, smoothie-like immunity juice featuring carrots, oranges, apple, lemon, ginger, parsley, and cinnamon.
13. Apple Beet Carrot Juice
This is the most beautiful juice, with bright beets and carrots giving it that lovely color. Because the apples and carrots give this juice a sweeter flavor, and it’s a bright pink color, you might be able to convince the kids to have a few sips and get that beety goodness into them.

14. Kale Craver
This is for the kale lovers—or even the kale haters, because the other flavors in this juice really complement the kale. Garlic, apples, celery, ginger, cucumber, and lemon make a refreshing and nourishing green drink you can enjoy daily and feel the health benefits.
15. Black Pepper Mango Juice
Now this is a juice I really love! It’s sweet, but also has vegetables, and it has a spicy kick from the black pepper and chili mango. If you need a juice to get your body in full detox mode, this is a great way to start. Or at least to clear out your sinuses!
16. Bright Body Detox Juice
This awesome juice can be made in a blender and tastes absolutely amazing. Its main fruit is strawberry, so it’s sweet and beautifully red. Cilantro, ginger, and lemon are the perfect detox accompaniments for such a lovely, healthy drink!
17. Cherry Orange Cranberry Juice
This juice is amazingly good. It’s not a green juice, and since it’s mostly fruit, you’ll want to go easy on how often you drink it. But it’s still packed with powerful vitamins and makes an excellent breakfast with its sweet and delicious flavors and red color.

18. Mint Kale Limeade Mocktails
This mocktail involves a bright green juice made from mint leaves and kale made into a non-boozy, delicious sparkling drink with sparkling water, fresh lime juice, ice, and a touch of honey. I bet you could serve this one to kids, too. Hey, anything to get those greens into them!
19. Dark Green Juice
This juice is rich in nutrients and has an amazing dark green color with all of those vegetables. You’ve got carrots, green apples, kiwis, cucumber, spinach, kale, romaine, lemon, and ginger. If you find that it’s too strong for you, feel free to dilute with water.
20. Perfect Green Lemonade
This yummy “lemonade” is made with celery, spinach, green apples, lemon, lime, and fresh pineapple or fresh grapefruit (depending on whether you’re craving a more sweet or more savory juice). It’s totally delicious and feels like a real nutrient tonic going down.
21. Easy Pomegranate Juice
If you love pomegranate juice but hate shelling out the big bucks for those expensive bottles at the store, try this technique for making pomegranate juice yourself at home. You’ll get about one cup of juice per pomegranate, assuming they’re of average size.

22. Get Up and Glow Juice
Need a juice that’s energizing, nutrient-rich, and still tastes good? Give this one a sip! Cucumbers, fresh basil, mint leaves, grapefruit, a bit of cantaloupe, and a hint of coconut sugar make a juice with amazing flavor and fantastic powers to get you going for the day.
23. Carrot Apple Glow Juice
This really is glow juice. I mean, just look at the picture! Made with carrots, orange, and green apples, this juice is naturally sweet and would be really kid-friendly with its lovely orange color. It’s fruit-based, but carrots go so well with fruit that it doesn’t taste “healthy.”
24. Homemade Chocolate Almond Milk
You might be wondering why I’m sharing this, as it isn’t really considered a juice. But hear me out: you can make this in your juicer! Really. It’s sweetened with dates and flavored with vanilla bean, raw cacao, and cinnamon for an amazing and nutritious, easy treat.
25. Whole Carrot Ginger Juice
This juice is made in a blender instead of a juicer, so you get the fiber of your carrots along with the vitamins and flavors. Apple adds additional sweetness, while ginger adds an immune-boosting zing that’s especially pleasant alongside carrots.

26. Fresh Vegetable Juice
This is a complex juice made with several different vegetables and fruits for a deep flavor that’s a little bit sweet, but mostly savory. This level of juicing takes some getting used to, so if you’re new to homemade juices, make this one a goal after you’ve tried some milder ones.
27. Good Morning Grapefruit Juice
While tasting sweet and tart as a good grapefruit should, this one also has a not-so-secret power: chlorella! This green powder is full of nutrients, but if you have another favorite type of green superfood powder, feel free to use that instead of the chlorella.
28. Spicy Red Juice
Thanks to ginger, this red juice has quite a kick to it—not a hot kick, but a bright and energizing one. Sweet potato, navel orange, apple, beet, carrots, and celery add other sweet or refreshing flavors to this drink, which you can enjoy as a simple way to help your body detox.
29. Fresh Apple Juice
This is a juice that really couldn’t be any simpler, since it’s just fresh apple juice! You could spice it up a little bit if you’d like, using cinnamon, ginger, or both. You could also heat it up for a warm cider-like drink! Kids love apple juice, too.
30. Radish, Beet, and Watercress Juice
This juice is also made in your blender, but it doesn’t require straining. Hooray! It’s a beautiful juice that’s a bit sweet from apples, orange, and baby carrots, but is super nutritious from the greens, radishes, and the beets. See if you can get your kids to drink it, since it’s so bright!
