One of the most common reasons the average person’s juicer sits unused for months or years at a time is because the thought of having to prepare and clean up after your juicing experience is enough to keep your juicer gathering dust.

We have prepared some helpful tips and easy juicing recipes to make the juicing process as painless as possible so you can get back into the juicing habit.

The first tip is to try to focus on fruits and vegetable that have a longer shelf life so you do not have to prepare too far ahead of time so if you get the juicing urge. It’s best to be prepared to act without thinking about having to go out to the store and get the necessary ingredients. Otherwise your motivation will quickly diminish.

The second tip is to try to focus on fruits or vegetables that have high juice yields.  If you have every tried juicing spinach or raspberries I think you know exactly what I mean. Fruits like apple are relatively easy to juice and have a high yield.  Veggies like carrots, cucumber and celery likewise have high yields.

 

Simple Juicing Recipes

So the key is combining these high yield fruits and veggies in a manner that are easy to prepare, efficient in juicing, and off course taste great!

I like to use cucumber as the base of most of my recipes since it’s not too strong of a flavor and easy to prepare.  I just quickly chop it according the opening of my juicer, and include skin and all.  The skin adds a bit more flavor that you may or may not enjoy, but for nutrition purposes and ease of use, I go for it skin and all.

Carrots and apples can be used separately or in combination to add sweetness to your recipe and does a great job of masking unpleasant flavors you might feel the skin of the cucumber might add.  I don’t even bother peeling the carrot for sake of being efficient.  Just do a good scrub down of the carrot being using it.  Same with apple, skin and all is the way to go.

Celery is another great high yield vegetable that is super easy to implement into your juicing recipes. Like the other fruits and vegetables mentioned above, celery also has a relatively long life in your refrigerator if stored correctly.
