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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • Stir juices together thoroughly, divide between two glasses, and serve immediately.
  • by

    Recipe Notes

  • Juice the ingredients in the order listed to maximize yield. Finishing with a very juicy ingredient like celery helps to flush more stubborn ingredients like basil through the juicer.
  • When juicing greens such as the basil in this recipe, you'll get a better yield if you tightly pack the greens (roll them up before adding to the feed tube of your juicer) and place them between two harder ingredients (such as the Asian pear and celery here). Nudge the greens through the juicer one small push at a time.
  • If your juicer has multiple speeds, use a slower speed for softer ingredients like the lemon.
  • Keep in mind that juicers vary a lot in terms of design and yield, so your mileage may vary.
  • 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.

    Ingredients

    • 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

    Instructions

  • Stir juices together thoroughly, divide between two glasses, and serve immediately.

    Recipe Notes

  • Juice the ingredients in the order listed to maximize yield. Finishing with a very juicy ingredient like grapefruit helps to flush more stubborn ingredients like ginger through the juicer.
  • When juicing greens such as the spinach in this recipe, you'll get a better yield if you tightly pack the greens (roll them up before adding to the feed tube of your juicer) and place them atop a harder ingredient (such as the ginger here). Nudge the greens through the juicer one small push at a time.
  • If your juicer has multiple speeds, use a slower speed for softer ingredients like the spinach and grapefruit.
  • Keep in mind that juicers vary a lot in terms of design and yield, so your mileage may vary.
  • 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.

    Ingredients

    • 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*

    Instructions

  • Stir juices together thoroughly, divide between two glasses, and serve immediately.
  • by

    Recipe Notes

  • * For best flavor, remove peel and all pith from citrus fruit using a sharp knife before juicing. If your juicer has multiple speeds, juice citrus on low speed. Alternatively, use a citrus juicer or reamer for citrus fruit.
