Vegetable juicing recipes
Here are some simple vegetable juicing recipes to make vegetable smoothies with. Juicing vegetables is super fun if you know the right combinations to try!
For a light and tasty drink, take 2 cups of washed and roughly chopped spinach leaves, one glass of almond milk, one or two leaves of kale, one frozen banana in chunks. You can add a teaspoon of chia seeds for texture. To make it colder, add some crushed ice before blending. Let it all whizz around in the juicer till smooth. Pour yourself a glass and enjoy! The best part is that this vegetable smoothie is so filling, it’ll keep you running on tank full for a few hours!
In another recipe, you can make yourself a fiber blast vegetable smoothie by juicing together one whole cucumber, peeled and cubed (you can leave the seeds for texture if you like that), two to three cups of honey dew melon or cantaloupe, also cubed, a half cup of broccoli florets, washed and chopped into smallish pieces, some crushed ice to make it chilled, and a few grapes and some mint for a taste boost. Just blend it all thoroughly and enjoy!
A lot of people drink spinach in juices regularly, without realizing that kale is also just as good in vegetable smoothies. Take a cup and a half of pineapple chunks (canned will do, but drain the sugar syrup properly), one banana (you can use frozen), a cup of almond milk or soy milk (low fat skim milk will do too), and one cup of washed and chopped kale. Blend them to a good smooth consistency and enjoy!
And then there’s tomatoes. Take two large tomatoes, a cup of water, half a green onion, a tiny pinch of salt, and half a cup water. You can add half a capsicum too. Blend them all together and drink for a lovely savory taste. If you fancy adding a kick to it, add a couple of drops of Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce. And if you’re feeling adventurous? A drop of Sriracha will do too.
