DIY Delicious Healthy Juices

Hey Everyone

So the latest craze is green juices, and healthy juice cleanses. However, they aren't too appealing to me :/ so I came up with my own (much more delicious) way of incorporating my fruits and veges! For these recipes I used the Sunbeam blender which is a knock off of the Nutri-Bullet. It performs great and is perfect for my healthy juice creations :) I mainly use spinach as my main green ingredient and trust me you can bearly taste it :P

I've made up some of my own recipes, but to be honest these were just by chance! I've just been playing around with whatevers in the fridge, and its really just a game of trail and error to figure out what you like :) These recipes are all different in texture and taste, which is why I have labelled them differently, also they are designed for two small serves or one large. As a side note that to make your drink more of a juice and less of a smoothie just add more liquid like water or orange juice! For all these recipes I add ice at the end, but you can always add it in the blender mix.

 I have also added annotations next to each ingredient to explain there purpose!


Juice Recipe 1: The hearty juice


This is the 'hearty juice' because its jam packed with flavour and goodness :) also its slightly thicker than a juice, thus making us fuller for longer!

To make this juice you will need:
  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach leaves - to get some green in there
  • 1/4 of a carrot - for some veges
  • a handful of raspberries - for some unique flavour (I just use the frozen ones :)
  • 1/4 cup of pineapple - for a tropical taste
  • 1/4 cup of pear juice - to keep the digestive system running well
  • a few slices of banana - for creaminess (I don't like too much otherwise it dominates the flavour)
  • lastly, a dash of lemon - for citrus balance and a kick of flavour
at the end I added some soda water to bulk the juice out and spice things up a bit ;)

Juice Recipe 2: the tropical blend


This juice is the 'tropical blend' because it is rich in citrus and tropical flavour. Its the perfect refreshing drink to have on a hot afternoon!

For this juice you'll need:
  • 2 decent handfuls of baby spinach leaves - for some green ofcourse
  • handful of chopped strawberries - to make it sweet
  • 3/4 of an orange - for delicious citrus fruitiness
  • I estimate the pineapple but it's probably around 1/3 cup or more - for the tropical accent
  • a dash of lemon juice - for some bity flavour
  • a dash of orange juice - to enhance the orange taste
  • a dash of water - to make a juicy smoother consistency


Juice Recipe 3: the cleanser


This juice is 'the cleanser' because as I drank it, I literally felt my insides cleaning :P

For this juice I used:

  • An inch or so of cucumber - for the greens
  • 1 1/2 handfuls of raspberries - for some tangy berry flavour
  • 2 1/2 handfuls of baby spinach leaves - just cause its good for ya
  • 1 apple - you know how they say 'an apple a day keeps the doctor away'
  • a decent dash of lemon - to cleanse the system
  • a little ginger - for health benefits (I don't add this because it gives me headaches)
  • a dash of pear juice - to regulate the digestion
  • a dash of water - to create a juicy consistency
  • you can also add beetroot


I hope you enjoyed this post and its inspired you to try some new healthy alternatives:) If you've tried a juice cleanse or make juices regularly too, then please comment your thoughts and experiences!
