I am very much interested on drinking fresh fruit juice, wanting to learn Juicing recipes. I kinda started drinking fresh juices lately, and like to try veggies too, but the only problem I see is that I might need some ingredients to get along with the juice, I don't think I can drink vegetable juices, has any one of you tried drinking juice from veggies? If you have any recipes you can share, I'd be very happy to try. Thanks a bunch.

I think Cunucu Beach drinks stuff like that. I'll DM her and give her a heads-up about this thread, shawnram. Perhaps she'll have some advice for you.

Hi, Shawn, and welcome to CD. Thanks, PJ8 for the DM about this thread.

First off, are you juicing your own foods or buying fresh juices in a health food store? What kind of juicer are you using? (Not that it makes much difference--all kinds give you juice.) Or are you using a blender to just mix up everything together?

I really like fresh carrot juice--it's sweet as carrots have a lot of sugar in them. However, it takes a lot of carrots to give you much juice, since most vegetables don't have as much water in them as do fruits. If you mix fruit juices with vegetable juices, it usually gives you a better flavor because fruits have more sugar than vegetables. Many vegetables don't have all that much juice in them, like broccoli or peppers--they are mostly fiber. The pulpy fruits, like peaches and plums, are hard to juice with most juicers as a lot of the juice goes out with the pulp. Of course, citrus fruits should be reamed out with a citrus juicer.

Here are some sites that might be helpful to you.

Good luck.

Hello Cunucu, yes, I am using juicer that gives out only the juice, it extracts the juice from pulps.., we juice fresh carrots, and blend with apple juice, all fresh. Thanks for the links that you gave.. I really appreciate them... Mother would be glad to have lots of Juicing recipes now.

What kind of juicer you have?? I am asking, because some juicers do a better than the others with less juicy stuff like bananas...

I have been blending with a Vitamix and decided to juice also. I have the Omega 8006 and basically use the recipe (Green Juice) from Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. It has everthing in it I want.

I also like a sweet juice which is a bunch of carrots, 1 apple, and 2 oranges. You can add ginger and 1/2 lemon to this also. Tonight I decided to add a handful of spinach to this and it was awsome.

I've kinda owned them all over the years, but currently own a Breville High Power Blender and Juice Plus, and an Omega 8004.


Bananas don't juice, but they do blend. Best is to throw them into a high speed blender like BlendTech or VitaMix with some liquid. Same for other soft stuff like berries.

Centrifugal juicers like the Breville Juice Plus are best for hard fruits and veggies like apples and carrots and beets and such. They use sharp little rasp teeth on a rotary place to grind the food up, and high speed rotary force to sling the juice away for collection. They are much faster than auger juicers, but leave a wetter pulp.

"Masticating auger" juicers like the Omega 8004 and the newer 8006, and the older Champion can also chew up firm foods like apples and carrots with their rotating auger, but are much slower to do so. And because they press the pulp against a perforated screen under pressure, they are more productive, leaving a dryer pulp, but they are much slower. Where they excel are in juicing leafy greens and wheatgrass and ginger, where the high pressure forces the juice out of the tough cellulose matrix.

Each serves a different purpose.

Wow, sad that no one answered you when you first posted it. Then again, I don't think it's common to own a juicer. You could try Google.

Here's one result:
