This National Freshly Squeezed Juice Week, the team at RipeTime have taken a moment from their fresh produce saving technology, too compile some of their favourite fresh juice recipes. This list combined with our health benefits list from earlier in the week (view here), will help you to determine what you want to put in/get out of your fresh juice during this nationally recognised week.

Anti-up!

  • 2 medium beets, cut into quarters including the greens
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup halved, hulled strawberries

This antioxidant based juice strikes a balance between the earthiness of the beets and the sweetness of the berries. Don’t forgot to add the beetroot greens for a strong contribution of iron and a greater overall nutritional value to the juice.

Note: If you find beetroot juice to be overwhelming, swap out standard beetroots for golden beetroots as their flavour tends to veer away from bitter notes, towards a more mild and sweet tasting juice.

Drink your Greens

  • 6 stalks of Celery
  • 2 Cucumbers
  • 4-6 leaves of Kale
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • 1-2 inches of Ginger
  • 2 Apples

We’ve been told all our lives to eat our greens and for good reason too, they’re packed full of vitamins and minerals! Not to mention a good source of fibre.

To avoid this juice from tasting like freshly cut grass the combination of ginger, lemon and apple help to compliment the greens and give the drink a little more bite.

Ginger Ninja

  • 3 medium Carrots
  • 2 medium Oranges (peel and pith removed)
  • 1-2 inches of Ginger

Make your orange juice interesting by sneaking in some ginger (like a ninja), and adding carrots to the mix. Rich in beta carotene, the carrots also offer a delicious way to temper the citrusy sweetness of the oranges.

This juice is full of antioxidants, along with Vitamins C and A.

The Reliever

  • 2 handfuls of Spinach
  • 3-4 stalks of Broccoli
  • 3-4 stalks of Celery
  • 1 large or 2 small Carrots

This drink is a natural form of stress relief as spinach is high in tryptophan, an amino acid which helps elevate your mood and promotes better sleep.

Your better sleep is also accompanied by the injection of magnesium, which helps to relax your nerves and muscles.

The Tropi-Kiwi

  • 2 Kiwis (peeled)
  • 1 1/4 cups of chopped Watermelon
  • 2 Limes (peel and pith removed)

This juice is a good source of fibre, while also being full of potassium, antioxidants, and Vitamins A & C.

One serving provides about 7 percent of daily needs of copper and pantothenic acid, 5 percent of biotin, and 4 percent of vitamin B1 and B6, which makes it a good source of each.

Sweet Potato-line *to the tune of Sweet Caroline*

  • 2 medium Sweet Potatoes (peeled)
  • 1 Pear (peeled and cored)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground Cinnamon

I know what you’re thinking, but the combination of sweet potato with pear and cinnamon makes for a juice that almost resembles Horchata.

Sweet potatoes are a good source of carotenoids, lutein and beta carotene—important for eye health, and vitamin C in sweet potatoes can help to protect our cells from damage. Phytonutrients found in pears may help improve insulin sensitivity and reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes.

Yellow Ranger

  • 3/4 small Pineapple
  • 1 1/2 Apples
  • 1 inch of ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Turmeric

Ginger root is high in antioxidants and can be used as a natural remedy for motion sickness or nausea, while turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory.

Pineapple and apples also have wonderful cleansing properties, especially if you are feeling sick, as they are packed with vitamin C and magnesium.
