Three Fresh Homemade Juices

Juices for days

First it was putting kale into everything, then quinoa for days, then it was on to the smoothies. Now, I have a new obsession – juicing.

I know, I know, another kitchen gadget?! Our kitchen is small enough, that it’s been hard to find the space for all my appliances between the mixer, the blender, the toaster, the french press, etc. etc. etc. But I do love a good gastronomic trend, and I found a pretty inexpensive juicer with great ratings. Juicing really isn’t as bougie as it sounds, and honestly doing it at home is MUCH cheaper than those crazy-expensive juice bars. Plus, you can be 100% sure what you’re making is fresh and high quality, based on the ingredients you’re using.

Juicing is great because it takes the nutrients from the fresh and vegetables, and puts them in a form that is very easily digestible by your system. Plus, even the green juices loaded with spinach taste yummy when combined with an apple and some ginger.

I’ve played around with a bunch of fruit and juice combinations, and wanted to share with you three of my favorites, along with my ridiculous names I’ve decided to give them as of 5 minutes ago:

Juices for days

Magenta Explosion

  • 1 beet
  • 1 medium apple
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 4-5 strawberries
  • 1 inch piece of peeled ginger

Juices for days

Quiet Orange Sunrise

  • 1 navel orange
  • 1 medium apple
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 medium carrot

Juices for days

Lean Green Machine

  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 apple
  • 1 peeled lemon
  • 1 inch piece of peeled ginger

I think my favorite thing about these juices is their color- how freakin’ gorgeous are these drinks?

Do you have any favorite juicing combinations? I’m always looking for more!

Happy juicing :-)

    I’ve just had the green juice for breakfast, it was so refreshing and delicious! Got everything for making the beet one as well, will try it later on today. Thank you so much!

    I’ve just had the beet juice and it was soooo good! Didn’t have fresh strawberries, so I thawed a few frozen ones. I was so excited about the combination of beet and strawberries, that I ended up using about 10 strawberries:) Great recipe! I was hoping to make the orange one for dinner, but ran out of apples. Will make it tomorrow then:)

    Hi Mallory, I found your site through Kayle at The Cooking Actress. I love your site! All of these juices sound delicious. I was thinking about purchasing a juicer, but wasn’t sure if it was worth storing another kitchen gadget. I think you helped me with my decision; all of these sound wonderful!

      Hey Taylor- thanks for the kind words! I love these juices!! I do peel my oranges first… I’m not entirely sure if my juicer can handle the rinds. I think some types can though.

    Ok I am sad that I have not used my juicer in at least a year. I am so trying the green and the orange! I hate beets but if you promise it doesn’t taste like beets I’ll give it a swirl too! Thanks for sharing!
