Hi, I'm Kels!

The Best Sourdough Glazed Donuts

The more we juice, the more I realize the difference that a recipe makes. My husband still doesn’t mind whatever I make for him, recipe or not, he’ll drink anything. I have found for myself that the recipe makes all the difference, especially being pregnant and ultra sensitive to smells! For that reason, I’ve been experimenting more with the recipes I’ve gathered, and have also been given some recommendations from my mom and sister that I’ll include here as well.

Ready, Steady, Go! (Juice Master)

2 apples
1 small beet
1 broccoli stem
1/2 celery stick
1″ slice cucumber
1/2″ slice pineapple
1 lime

This recipe is specifically designed with kids in mind, and I would at least double the ingredients for my husband or I. Delicious.

Perfect Green Juice (Food Matters)

3 celery stalks
1 cucumber
2 kale leaves
1/4 fennel bulb
1 lemon
1 green apple
1/2 ” slice ginger

This is basically what we make every morning, minus the fennel.

Pink Lady (Food Matters)

1 small beet
2 pears
1 small head romaine lettuce
1/2 lime

Summer Juice (Food Matters)

2 cucumbers
1/4 pineapple (peeled)
1 large handful of mint

Leafy Greens (The Juicing Bible)

8 fresh spinach leaves
2 kale leaves
1 beet
2 stalks celery
1 apple

Cucumber Fuzz (The Juicing Bible)

2 peaches, pitted
2 stalks celery
1 cucumber

Cucumber Cooler (The Juicing Bible)

1 cucumber
2 cups green grapes
1 handful spinach
1 handful fresh mint
2 apples
1/2 lemon

This one is so good. I love how fresh it tastes, like summer!

Super Workout and Recovery Juice (Juice Master)

1/4 cucumber
1 stalk celery
2 apples

Easy, refreshing, and great after a hard workout.

*** Most of these recipes end up pretty small for us. We juice pretty large individual portions, filling a 16 oz. glass. These recipes are for an 8 oz. portion.

I don’t juice a lot of fruit, but I couldn’t resist these recipes now that it’s summer:

Vitamin C Boost

1 grapefruit, peeled
2 oranges
2 sprigs fresh parsley (if pregnant, stick to only 2 sprigs/day of parsley)
3 kiwifruits

Juice and serve over ice.

Lemon Aid (The Juicing Bible)

2 lemons
1,  2″ slice of watermelon
1/2 cucumber
1 tsp raw honey, optional

Pineapple Citrus

1/2 pineapple
2 oranges
1 lime

There is nothing better than a cold juice on a hot day. Cucumbers and watermelons are especially cooling for the body, making them an excellent choice to bring the body temperature down.

    Charlie's favorite is the Popeye Power – apple, pineapple, spinach & lemon (but don't tell him I've recently been adding cucumber and kale to it….he seems to still like it!)
    I love the Ready Steady Go!

    Ooh, these look great! I'm excited to try them. Thanks for posting!

  3. Why only two sprigs per day? These sound good! Are you famished all the time doing this?
