If you’re going to dive headfirst into the world of juicing, you will need a great juicer and some fresh produce, but you'll also need some great recipes.
While technically you can just unload your crisper into most juicers without any problem, a little strategizing will help you maximize the taste and the nutritional value of your juicing concoctions.
In this article, we take a close look at a few yummy juicing recipes you’ve just got to try.
1. Breakfast Blend
If you’re like most people, you probably want to start your day off with something tasty and non-confrontational (we love our greens but sometimes they can be a little much at six a.m.). If you just can’t stomach starting your day with kale, this breakfast blend may be to your liking.
With several simple ingredients, you can enjoy something sweet, energizing, and distinct.
Start by washing your carrots, oranges, and ginger. The tops and peels may need to be cut off to maximize the taste factor. After that, chop them up so that they are sized appropriately relative to the needs of your juicer, and let the machine take care of the rest.
The orange provides a great flavor to the drink, while the carrots can aid with digestion and heart health. Ginger is full of fiber and antioxidants, enhancing the health value of the drink while also adding a unique taste.

2. Time to Get the Greens In
Now that you’ve met the day with a tasty beverage, it’s time to move on to a vitamin overload. That’s right, it’s time to drink your greens. This green juice features cucumbers, spinach, celery, ginger, apples, and parsley to blend an enticing flavor with lots of nutrients.
The nice thing about this juice is that it is calorically light, but it is also rich in flavor. The cucumber and ginger make the drink taste extremely refreshing. Meanwhile, the two apples overload the taste of the spinach, so you get all the nutrients, but you don’t have to choke down that earthy taste that some people turn away from.
Bottom line? It’s a tasty beverage that packs an insane amount of nutritional value in a single cup.

-Six celery stalks

3. Kale That Isn’t Terrible
Kale is one of the most nutritionally powerful foods in existence. If it didn’t taste like dirt, we’d probably all be eating it constantly. But what if you could load up on the kale with a beverage that doesn’t make you gag? Indeed, that is the promise of this tropical kale concoction.
Using just five simple ingredients, you can enjoy the taste of the tropics with every sip you take. The kale packs a nutritional wallop, while the pineapple, coconut, and apples bat cleanup to make sure the drink tastes, you know...good. It’s great as a meal or a snack, so drink up!
