Fruit Juice Recipes

Fruit Juice RecipesNutrition aside, there is no liquid on earth that tastes better than freshly made fruit juice. The flash-pasteurized, bottled stuff available at your local grocery store is ok in a pinch, but that’s like comparing a picture of your girlfriend to actually having her in your arms. No matter how great your camera, there’s just no comparison.  The only danger for me is the temptation of drinking more fruit and less vegetable juice. Those cantaloupe juice cravings get me every time. The general rule of thumb is vegetables are high in minerals and fruit is high in vitamins; both provide a different range of antioxidants, so it makes sense to drink equally from both to obtain the widest spectrum of nutrients in your diet.   As for Gatorade®, soda, and the like, I just assume the poor folks I see chugging back those counterfeits-in-a-can, have never had the privilege of supping on the nectar of living fruit. 

What amazes me is how something that tastes so good can be so good for you. Whereas the food coloring in sports drinks can cause cancer, the natural coloring in fruit actually protects from cancer, and the more color the better. Fresh fruit juice is a great way of getting loads of vitamins and antioxidants into your busy kids’ bodies. Even the fussiest eaters will down a tall glass of cantaloupe juice or orange juice, supplying their entire daily need of vitamin C and A, just to mention a few. Freeze the juice into homemade popsicles and you have a fun treat to bribe them into eating their veggies at supper.

Here are some of the most recent additions to our recipe collection: 

Cleansing Limonade Juice
If you enjoy the tart flavor, add another lime and dab of honey, doubling lime’s antibiotic, antioxidant punch.
Ingredients
  • 1 lime
  • 3 apples
  • 1 tbsp. of raw honey
Nutrients
  • Vitamin C
  • Pectin
  • Limonene
Health Benefits
  • Reduces Risk of Cancer
  • Antioxidant
  • Antibiotic
Details
Instead of peeling the lime, thinly cut away the green skin leaving as much of the white pith as possible, which is packed with antioxidants.
Peachy Plum Juice
If you are constipated this is a great juice to get things moving due to plum’s gentle laxative effect.   Plum juice has a milder laxative effect compared to prune juice.
Ingredients
  • 4 plums
  • 3 peaches
  • 2 apricots
Nutrients
  • Vitamin C
  • Chlorogenic Acid
  • Lutein
  • Lycopene
  • Neochlorogenic acid

  • Antioxidant
  • Protects From Macular Degeneration
  • Anti-tumor
  • Laxative
Details
Remove pits and juice. Softer, ripe plums, peaches and apricots produce more of a puree then juice.
Peach Apricot Juice
Peaches and nectarines have almost identical nutritional content so you can switch them out in any juice recipe. Tests have shown that peaches have excellent antioxidant activity and actually have the ability to inhibit tumor growth.
Ingredients
  • 4 peaches
  • 3 apricots
  • 1 apple
Nutrients
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A (beta-carotene)

Remove pits and juice. Softer, ripe peaches and apricots produce more of a puree then juice, which is especially good when frozen into popsicles. Freestone peaches are the fastest to juice; as the name implies, the stone cleanly pulls away from the flesh. Simply cut in half and twist away the meat.
Papaya Kiwi Juice
This will make a thick, beta-carotene colored  juice, full of vitamin C. Because papaya is a great source of the enzyme, papain, this is a perfect  juice to cleanse and heal the digestive track.
Ingredients
  • 2 oranges
  • 2 kiwifruits
  • 1 medium papaya
Nutrients
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A (beta-carotene)
  • Potassium

Health Benefits

Details
You can juice the whole papaya fruit, including seeds and skin, but be aware that even though there is a healthy array of nutrients in the seeds, they can add a bitter taste to the juice. If this is your first time juicing papaya, try it without the seeds first.  Instead of peeling oranges, thinly cut away the orange skin leaving as much of the white antioxidant-rich pith as possible.
Kiwi Orange Juice
This juice will be thick and rich with flavor and nutrients. In fact kiwis are higher in vitamin C then oranges!
Ingredients
  • 3 kiwifruits

Nutrients

Details
Wash kiwifruit well and juice with skin on. Instead of peeling oranges, thinly cut away the orange skin leaving as much of the white pith as possible, (which is packed with antioxidants).
Beta Apricot Juice
Among  the fruit family only cantaloupes can rival apricots for the amount of beta carotene, making this a drink a sight for sore eyes—literally!
Ingredients
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 apricots
  • ½ cantaloupe

  • Protects From Eye Diseases
Details
Remove pit and make sure the apricots are not too soft or they will not juice well.
Mango Pineapple Juice
This is a taste of tropic sunshine. Overripe mangoes are great for smoothies or purees, but will not juice very well, producing a thick juice. They are best to juice when just starting to give slightly to the touch.
Ingredients
  • 1 large mango
  • ¼ pineapple
Nutrients
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A (beta-carotene)
  • Potassium

Details
Remove pit and skin before juicing. Slicing a mango is a bit of a trick. Starting at the top, cut down, curving the knife along the flat part of the pit on both sides. This will remove the majority of flesh. You can slice strips of flesh and the skin should easily pull or cut away from the fillet.
Cherry Sleepy Time Juice
Select dark colored, firm cherries for the best yield and highest nutrients. 
Ingredients
  • ½ pound of cherries
  • 2 apples
Nutrients
  • Pectin
  • Quercetin
  • Anthcyanidins

  • Helps With Insomnia
Details
Yes you do have to remove the pits from the cherries before juicing and yes it’s a little work. But there’s simply nothing like freshly made cherry juice for flavor and micronutrients. Juice cherries first, then apples, this will help capture all those valuable anthcyanidin pigments remaining in the juicer.
Tangerine Orange Juice
Citrus with seeds is perfectly fine and in fact is often a juicier, thinner skinned fruit producing a greater yield.
Ingredients
  • 5 Tangerines
  • 3 oranges
Nutrients
  • Vitamin C
  • Hesperetin
  • Limonoid
Health Benefits
  • Prevents Skin Cancer (Melanoma)

Red Grape Apple Juice
When it comes to grapes, the darker the color the higher the presence of flavonoids. Concord grapes are the best.

Health Benefits
  • Lowers Risk of Blood Clots
  • Reduces Low-density Lipoprotein, or Bad Cholesterol
  • Protects Blood Vessels In the Heart

Details
Pure grape juice from a juicer is very strong in taste, so I like to cut it with apple or even equal parts water. Juice grapes first, then apples, this will help remove all those valuable flavonoids remaining in the juicer. If using a centrifugal force juicer I always pass the wet grape pulp through the juicer twice, increasing juice yield.

I double this and make a huge glass of sunshine and detoxifying vitamin C. Citrus juice made from a hand citrus juicer and a centrifugal extractor are quite different. The centrifugal juicer or, even better, a gear-based juicer, produces a thick frothy juice, which can be a little more tart. The quality and the nutritional value will be slightly higher than from a citrus juicer.

Thank you for any other great post. Where else may just anyone get that kind of information in such an ideal means of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the search for such info.
ninja 1100 reviews
I appreciate the many recipes you've provided but some of your claims are simply false. Anytime some one claims that we only use 10% of our brain power is full of manure; even more so when you claim that a juice (Brain Stimulator recipe) will increase the percentage. It makes me wonder how much else on this page is based upon pseudo-scientific bunk. Educate yourself before making bold claims that are commonly known to be untrue. Otherwise, you undermine yourself and the information you're putting forth. Let real science enlighten you: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=people-only-use-10-percent-of-brain
