You can make fresh veggie juice naturally, quickly, and easily. Just watch your health improve when you do – plus you can save money and get a better product. No more buying expensive bottles of ‘cooked’ vegetable juice that may or may not be adding good nutrition to your diet. Fresh is best!
Even with low cost electric juicers you can easily make your own veggie juice from fresh vegetables. If you grow your own organic vegetables and fruits, it’s even better. You can pick fresh and have the best food that will boost your health.
Making your own fresh vegetable juice is really beneficial to the whole family. Not only are you making it easier for them to get their 5 a day but you’re also avoiding the many hidden sugars and additives found in traditional juices.
Making your own fresh veggie juices is one of the quickest, most powerful ways to lift the nutritional intact of your family, and, thus, improve your family's health. This is especially vital for anyone who is ill or fighting serious health issues. Use blends according to a person's digestive ability, age and health, with respect to allergies and personal preferences, too.
It's easy to dilute strong flavors by adding fruit or to thin the juice down by adding water. I prefer, quite often, a taller, more refreshing drink, on a hot summer morning that I can add ice cubes to and sip on the deck.
You do want to drink your juice fairly quickly, though. The nutrients are at their peak right after juicing.
Here’s how to get started:
1. Get a good juicer – A good juicer is worth its weight in gold. You can get years out of use from an initial investment and have fresh juice all year round. Look for a strong and sturdy model that’s easy to use. If it’s too fiddly you may be put off using it on a regular basis.
I picked up my first juicer at a Clearance rack at a local store. It is a small simple machine that regularly sold for between $40.00 and $50.00. It was marked down to $6.00! Do you think I care if it takes a bit longer!
By the way, it was marked down because something was missing from the package. I discovered it was the manual. Five minutes later I had downloaded it. For FREE.
But the bigger, heavier juicers do a better job, faster, more efficiently and will make more juice before needing to be cleaned. If you plan to make fresh veggie juice for a large family, or to make it often, then purchasing the best quality juicer that you can is highly recommended.
Once you have a good juicer in place here are a few recipes to help you make fresh veggie juice quickly and easily, that are not only fairly frugal choices, but that are easy and sure to be enjoyed by the whole family:
2. Choose organic or farm/garden fresh when possible to make your fresh veggie juice for optimum nutritional value. But, that isn't always possible if the extra expense of "organic" doesn't fit in our budget. There are some fruits and vegetables that are heavily treated with pesticides - The Dirty Dozen - those you want to avoid. Some other plants are safer to use, called The Clean 15, and those, if you can't purchase all organic, are the ones to buy non-organic. Please see note at bottom of page.
Clean all the fruit and veg, prepare by cutting into chunks that will easily fit through your juicer's feed tube, and then run it through the juicer according to product instructions. (Always read these first)
Depending on the consistency you like add water as appropriate.
Feel free to add, some other choices, too, according to your taste. If you add leafy greens, please, note:
I actually soak my leafy vegetables that might have a bug or two hiding in them by placing them in a bowl of cold water for a few minutes until I feel any dust residue and stray little critters are released. Really swish them through the water and shake well before using.
Here are a few more combinations you might enjoy:
Those are just a few examples to help get you started. You may already have these ingredients on hand which will make it easier.
Juicing really doesn’t have any limits, however, and these recipes are just starting points. Once you have your juicer there are many, many variations you can try for delicious natural home-made juices.
These 2 new FREE (for now) Reports will make it much easier for you to learn how to make fresh veggie juice.
The Organic Juicing Guide report. This 11 page FREE report will help you understand the value of using organic fruits and vegetables for juicing, list The Clean 15 and The Dirty Dozen (as of 2015), and will give you tips on how to save money on organic juicing.
The 1 Day Juice Detox Guide Another 11 page report includes the famous Mean Green juice recipe. Learn how Joe Cross lost more than 100 lbs and went from multiple health issues to now living medication free. His story is extreme – and he did it under doctor’s care – but you don’t have to detox more than a day to feel results.
Certain fruits and vegetables may have pesticides remaining on them. Because of this it is highly recommended you use organically grown ingredients for your juices. No sense undoing all that goodness. If you can’t purchase organic, learn which ones are The Clean 15 and which ones are The Dirty Dozen so you can safely pick and choose at the grocery store.

"Important Note: In the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and most other modern countries, non-organic produce sold by recognized retailers is safe to eat. This non-organic food delivers levels of toxins and other man-made additives at a level or ratio that has been proven safe for human consumption. This means if you can not afford to purchase organic produce, or it is not available in your area, you can safely use non-organic produce in your juices."
One way to avoid this problem when you make fresh veggie juice is to grow your own, especially of the more vulnerable vegetables, like spinach, beets and their greens, and parsley.
