Juice, baby!

We bought a juicer several months ago, but up until recently it was really only used for apple and orange juice. I had not really experimented with much. I am not actually a big fan of juice – I stick to water, green tea, coffee (sometimes), and (of course) wine. But the kids, they love juice and I don’t really allow it. I will occasionally pick up an Odwalla or Kombucha, and those bottles are awesome for keeping your own juice in! I decided to experiment last night with some things I had excess of in the fridge, and it turned out fantastic! The kids loved both the juices, and I even liked them! So, without further ado …


  • 1/2 apple
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 handful pineapple chunk
  • 1 large naval orange



  • 1/2 apple
  • 1 handful pineapple chunks
  • 8 strawberries
  • 2 carrots

For best results, use fresh organic produce! These are stored in our old Odwalla containers.

  1. Once I started juicing, and I discovered how great (and healthy) different combinations of veggies and fruits are when juiced, I was hooked. Making your own fresh juice is really the way to go as it has more vitamins and antioxidants than store-bought juice. Before long, you’ll start keeping your own list of favorite juice recipes.

    Here is one of my favorite recipes that my whole family loves. It’s simple to make, and very delicious and great for immunity and skin too!

    1 orange
    2 carrots
    4 tomatoes

  2. Oh, these both look/sound yummy. We have a juicer, but it’s been forever since I used it. I really need to make it a priority again!

  3. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe! We’ll have to try that!

  4. Cathy – I’d never really thought they would be useful, but now I use my juicer almost every day! The kids say it tastes so much better!
