Juicing ideas

For those of you lucky enough to have a juicer:

Raw 'lemonade'

A very simple juice, with ingredients that are probably to hand most of the time. The trick with this is getting the balance right so it's not too sweet and not too sour. This combination works well for me:

1 medium lemon (peeled)
2 large or 3 small apples
1 medium pear

Ginger Zinger

2 apples
1 lemon - peeled
1" root ginger

Lovely fresh tangy juice - great to wake you up.

Colon Calmer

I wanted a tasty juice that included cabbage, as I do suffer from bloating and cabbage juice is purported to be great for any bowel problems, from bloating, to IBS etc.

Fist sized piece of red cabbage
3 apples
2 beetroots

Tastes a lot better than you'd think - sort of sweet coleslaw flavour.


  1. I love juicing and only seem to get into it in the summer - lovely recipe ideas!

    1. Thank you. I love juicing too, especially in warm weather, though the ones with root ginger in them are quite warming when it's cold. So good for us too. :)

  2. I love fresh juices and smoothies and really enjoy throwing different ingredients in and seeing what works. Some excellent ideas here.
