Jumpin’ Juices

Favorite recipes from devoted juicers who want to help you jump-start your juicing habit . . . 

“Make Juice, Not War” Green Drink

  • 1 large cucumber (peeled if not organic)
  • A fistful of kale and romaine (or spinach, chard, etc.)
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 big broccoli stem (adds sweetness)
  • 1 pear or green apple (optional)

From wellness coach Kris Carr: “It’s our motto and our morning beverage.”

Carrot-Celery Blast

  • 1 carrot
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1 small Granny Smith apple
  • Half a bunch of cilantro or parsley

From nutritionist Ann Louise Gittleman, PhD: “This juice cleanses the palate and provides a terrific energy boost; the celery provides some of the hardest-to-get mineral salts in a very palatable, easily absorbable way.”

Pretty and Pink

From 60-year-old model and pro-age cosmetics entrepreneur Cindy Joseph: “When it comes to juice, I am a purist. I like to taste one fruit or vegetable at a time.” In the fruit category, one of her favorites is watermelon. Just toss chunks (no rind) into a juicer and enjoy.

The Morning Energizer

  • 5 carrots
  • 1 beet with leaves and stem
  • 2 stalks celery
  • cucumber
  • 1/4 lemon, peeled
  • 1-to-2-inch piece of fresh gingerroot
