Three Fresh Juice Recipes You’ve Never Heard Of
Asian Pear Juice with Basil and Lemon
Asian pear lends a delicate, floral sweetness to this light and refreshing juice, while the lemon and basil chat with each other in little bursts of excitement. See notes below for detailed recipe instructions.
- 1 cup (8 ounces) fresh Asian pear juice from about 4 Asian pears
- 1/4 cup (2 ounces) fresh basil juice from about 2 packed cups basil leaves and stems
- 1/4 cup (2 ounces) fresh lemon juice from about 2 lemons, peel and pith removed
- 2/3 cup (about 5 ounces) fresh celery juice from about 4 large celery stalks
Green Juice with Grapefruit and Ginger
This juice is simple, crisp, and refreshing. Though bright green and full of spinachy goodness, it tastes mostly like a lightly gingery grapefruit juice. See notes below for detailed recipe instructions.
- 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) fresh ginger juice, from about a 1-inch piece ginger
- 1/4 cup (2 ounces) fresh spinach juice, from about 3 cups packed baby spinach leaves
- 1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) fresh grapefruit juice, from about 2 medium grapefruits, peel and pith removed
Orange and Sweet Potato Juice
Although sweet potato is often juiced for its nutrients, it's also a lesser known source of subtle creaminess in terms of both flavor and texture. I won't pretend this juice tastes like dessert, but it really does have an undertone of creamsicle.
- 1/2 cup (4 ounces) fresh sweet potato juice from about 1 medium sweet potato, peeled
- 1/4 cup (2 ounces) fresh carrot juice from about 1 large carrot
- 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) lime juice from 1 lime*
- 3/4 cup (6 ounces) orange juice from 1 to 2 large oranges*
