Have you already started making juice? If you haven't, you should try it! It's a fun and tasty way to pack a ton of healthy nutrients into a drinkable treat that will make you feel good.

Now, many people think of juices as a substitute for whole foods – I don't agree with that. I believe that whole foods (and the fiber that goes with them) are a vital part of a healthy diet. I don't recommend using fruit or vegetable juices (or smoothies) as food substitutes.

Instead I think adding fruit juice and all-natural, sugar-free vegetables to help complementary your diet is a great idea. Is not better than whole foods, it's just differences . And sometimes, that's all it takes to help us stick to a healthy diet.

Below you will learn the best natural juice recipes, in 2022. You will be informed about the details of each suco, its complexity and its health benefits.

1. Carrot Juice with Orange and Ginger Recipe

Carrots are naturally sweet, so they are the perfect ingredient for making juices. The less added sugar you have to incorporate, the better, after all.

This recipe is packed with vitamin C, thanks to the inclusion of orange. And let's not forget the antioxidants in ginger.

So it's the perfect juice to drink if you think you're getting sick.

Fresh ginger is best for this, but I know it can be a pain to peel.

I suggest you peel a large batch at once (do it in front of the TV if you like!) and freeze it for later.

Why do you need this recipe

While you can use carrots to make homemade carrot juice, I think adding a few other ingredients makes it really special. The lemon and orange juices add shine, while the ginger adds some flavor.

  • This recipe has almost 70% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C. And Vitamin C is known to be a great immune system supporter..
  • Carrot juice benefits are known to include: immune health, eye health, relieving constipation, lowering bad cholesterol, and more. Learn more about the health benefits of carrot juice.
  • The juice is sweet, slightly spicy, and perfect to help fight off seasonal bugs. It is also a very hydrating recipe.

2. Green Juice Recipe

Green juice is all the rage these days, and for good reason.

'Greens' are a great source of fiber, antioxidants, nutrients, minerals, folate, vitamin C and potassium.

They can help reduce inflammation, strengthen your body's immune system, and are even good for your skin.

Of course, what you get out of it will depend on what you put into it.

Green juices that contain spinach or kale are all the rage, and celery is also a good choice.

Just play around with the ingredients until you find something that works for you.

3. Beetroot Juice

If you're not a beetroot lover, go ahead and skip to the following recipe, because no amount of citrus or apple juice can mask that earthy flavor.

But if you like beets, I think you'll love this bright, sweet juice.

The best part is that you don't need to cook the beets before making the juice.

Instead, just add it to your machine with apple, carrot, celery and ginger and let it work its magic.

Setup time: 10 minutes
Portions: 2 servings
Ingredients:
1 small red beet
1 large apple (or 2 small apples)
2 celery stalks
1-2 Carrots
1/2 lemon or lime
1/2 inch small piece of ginger, peeled
Instructions:
step 1
Wash all vegetables and fruits under running water and dry them.
step 2
Peel and cut the beet into long slices. Cut the apple into long pieces and remove the core. Peel and cut the carrot into long pieces. Cut the celery into long pieces.
step 3
Place a cup or container under the spout of a juicer and turn it on.
Step 4
Process all ingredients (beetroot, apple, carrot, celery, ginger) except lemon, alternately in the juicer.
Step 5
Squeeze half a lemon into the prepared juice and mix well. Pour into chilled glasses and serve. Drink immediately.
Tips and Variations:
Choose a small, firm beet. Also, we use sweet apple, but you can use any type of apple of your choice. Pure beet juice is very strong; always mix it with some other fruit or vegetable juice to potentially avoid any side effects.
If you're using organic vegetables and fruits, don't peel them.
Taste: sweet and refreshing
Serving ideas: Serve it for breakfast for a refreshing, healthy change from your routine apple and orange juice. It helps to lower high blood pressure and is a recommended drink for patients with high blood pressure. Drink it regularly to prevent cardiovascular problems from occurring.

4. Super Powerful Orange Juice

If you like to start your day with orange juice, you must be super powerful, don't you think?

It starts with carrots, which have been proven to help with eyesight and relieve congestion. So, of course, there's a ton of fresh orange juice in the mix, too.

Not only that, but this recipe also includes nectarines, apple, lemon juice, and ginger.

That bit of citrus really brings it to life, and I love the spicy kick you get from the ginger.

You can even make this recipe without a juicer. You just need a high power blender.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup of orange juice
  • spoons of lemon juice
  • nectarine small (pipe removed)
  • Apple small (pitted and cut in four)
  • 1 spoon of soup fresh ginger (peeled)
  • 4 – 6 carrots whole (peeled/tops removed)
  • 3 – 4 ramos fresh mint that is optional )
  • 1 – 2 cups of filtered water

Instructions

  • If using a juicer, add all the ingredients to the juicer and press (omit water). Otherwise, squeeze the orange and lemon juice into the blender, as the pulp can make the juicing process difficult.
  • Then add nectarine, apple, ginger, carrot and mint (optional). Cover with filtered water (start with the smallest amount), cover and mix until combined. You don't want your blender to make the juice too hot, so be careful not to over-mix - it shouldn't take longer than 30 seconds.
  • Place a clean, thin towel over a large bowl and carefully pour over the juice and pulp. Then join the corners together and start extracting the juice, leaving the pulp behind. Keep squeezing until all the juice is extracted. You can compost the pulp or add it to baked goods!
  • Enjoy the fresh juice. Cover and refrigerate leftovers for 2-3 days, although the first 12-24 hours are best for mineral and vitamin content.

Notes

* Use organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible.
*To reduce the sugar content, leave out 1-2 fruits (like nectarines and apples).
*Recipe as written yields about 2 1/2 cups of juice.
*Recipe inspired by the Shed's Orange Juice.
