I recently discovered juicing fruits and vegetables. At first I was very skeptical about throwing a cucumber into a juice with sweet apples and peaches, but soon after I tried my first green juice I realized that vegetables taste completely different in a juice than they do when eating whole! Often times when you make a juice with fruits and veggies, the vegetables are a background flavor with delicious fruit as the overwhelming taste. I love juices. They taste great and can be made in so many ways!

We use a Jack La Lanne Juicer, it's great!

I have many juicing recipes to share, but the most fun thing to do is make up your own!

This first one is the best to try before any other! It is called "Sherbert Lemonade" and is an amazing version of lemonade. It tastes a million times better than store bought lemonade. 
It is very simple: 2 green apples with an inch of lemon. 

lemon, apple, ginger and beet.

When juicing leafy greens, like the kale pictured, you want to pair it with a fruit that will help the juicer extract the liquid. If you don't put them together then the juicer will just shred most of the leaves without getting much out of it.

This is my favorite green juice: kale, broccoli stem, cucumber, zucchini, beet, ginger, apple, lemon, orange and carrot; then blended with banana.  

This is the lemon ginger zinger: carrots, apple, lemon, ginger.

These two pictures are the same juice, the first one shows it about to be blended with banana :]

Berry blast: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, zucchini, beet, ginger, lemon and apple.

Lemon, orange and apple; added chia seeds.

Mango, orange, apple, lemon.

This is my favorite juicing recipe site:
Jason Vale is a great coach for juicing.
