Super versatile, easy-to-make, and incredibly tasty, homemade juices are a great way to start your day.
On top of that, they’re also extremely beneficial when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Made from fresh fruits and vegetables, most juicing recipes contain ingredients that can regulate blood sugar, lower cholesterol, boost the immune system, and improve digestion.
In truth, the benefits of drinking freshly made juices everyday go on and on, with juices also protecting the skin, reducing the risks of heart disease, and giving us essential vitamins and nutrients.
Seeing as though juices are so tasty and so important, we saw it fit to give you some juicing recipes you can make.
Therefore, we’ve compiled a list of the best 20 juicing recipes (see also ‘10 Best Monthly Juice Subscription Boxes‘). In this article, we’ll give you a brief description of each one.
Let’s get started, shall we!
1. Green Juice
As far as super healthy, tasty juices go, a good green juice recipe takes some beating.
All the rage right now, the ‘Greens’ used to make a green juice are an excellent source of antioxidants, minerals, nutrients, fiber, potassium, folate, and Vitamin C.
Together, the ingredients help boost the immune system, protect the skin, and reduce inflammation.
Our favorite green juice recipe contains granny smith apples, celery, cucumber, curly, kale, lemon, and ginger.
The different ingredients combine beautifully to produce a sweet, bitter, powerful juice packed with flavor and a lush consistency.
2. Celery Juice
While it may seem like an unappealing, unexciting juice, celery juice can taste delicious when made using the best recipe. Above all else though, this juice is incredibly beneficial if you have issues related to digestion or bloating.
Drinking celery juice regularly is believed to relieve the symptoms of bloating and improve digestive health. Celery is packed with antioxidants and is high in sodium.
On top of that, it also has great anti-inflammatory properties that can aid recovery after intense exercise.
All you need to make this juice is some celery and your choice of blender or juicer.
If you’re in need of something to cool you down and refresh you on a hot summer’s day, this fresh watermelon juice recipe could be exactly what you need.
Super easy and quick to make, watermelon provides that cool juicy refreshment you need in no time. It also comes with a number of great health benefits.
Your skin will benefit most from the juice’s properties, feeling revitalized and refreshed.
This recipe simply requires watermelon to make, but you can add to the overall flavor of the juice by adding a dash of lime, or some sweet strawberries too.
The next juice on our list is this delicious carrot, orange, and pineapple juice. Full of flavor and tropical flair, this juice is one the whole family is sure to enjoy.
It’s sweet, slightly earthy, bitter, and amazingly juicy. Aside from looking wonderfully vibrant and tasting even better, this carrot, orange, and pineapple juice recipe contains plenty of goodness.
Full of Vitamin C, essential enzymes, anti-inflammatory properties, and nutrition, this juice will improve your digestive health as well as get the taste buds tingling. For added nutritional value add in a handful of kale too.
5. Apple Juice
Apple juice is the most popular juice in the United States, so it only makes sense to make your own.
While you can buy apple juice from virtually any local store, nothing quite beats making your own fresh glass first thing in the morning. More often than not, your own homemade apple juice tastes a lot better too.
You can spice things up with cinnamon or sweeteners or keep things simple by just using apples.
This healthy apple juice recipe only requires apples. You don’t even need a juicer to make it!
The next juice on our list might seem like an odd choice but trust us, it comes with plenty of benefits and tastes pretty great.
Having said that, if you’re not a lover of beetroot you might want to skip this recipe. Beautifully colored and intriguingly earthy, yet sweet in taste, if you love beetroot, we’re sure you’ll love everything about this juice.
Containing celery, apples, lemon, ginger, carrots, and beetroot, this juice tastes great, looks awesome, and comes with an abundance of essential nutrients and minerals.
What’s not to like?
7. Orange Juice
Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. This is certainly the case when it comes to this orange juice recipe. Like apple juice, homemade orange juice can be made in a pinch.
This makes it one of the best juices to make if you’re in a hurry. All you need to make a delicious, refreshing homemade orange juice is your choice of oranges and a juicer.
Aside from tasting pretty spectacular, orange juice comes with several health benefits. Just one glass of this orange juice contains 100% of your daily recommended Vitamin C, amongst other things.
Carrots are one of the most popular juicing ingredients. This is because they are naturally sweet and full of goodness.
When juiced along with orange and ginger, they help make a luscious fresh juice that’s low in sugar and full of nutrients and minerals.
The recipe we’ve linked above is bursting with Vitamin C, we have the orange to thank for that. It’s also packed with antioxidants from ginger. These two things make this juice a great option if you’ve fallen sick.
Peeling the ginger for this juice can be a pain though so consider making a big batch.
Also known as Jamu juice, the next juice on our list is actually a traditional Indonesian juice. Made to refresh and balance your body, this interesting and surprisingly tasty juice is made from a simple blend of ingredients.
Key ingredients include turmeric, ginger, black pepper, coconut water, lemon, and honey. Oddly enough, the juice can then be served chilled or warmed.
The honey and lemon are great additions to the juice, helping to ensure it has a sweet and bitter taste alongside the earthy, spicy flavors.
Turmeric ginger juice is full of antioxidants so give it a try!
If you’ve never tried a juice recipe with fennel in before you’re seriously missing out. Fennel is common in Mediterranean cuisine but not many people realize that you can actually make a killer juice with it too.
Fennel has a flavor that we can only liken to anise or licorice. This flavor adds the perfect balance of sweetness to boring, earthly juices. Fennel also contains lots of Vitamin C which will help boost your immune system.
Mix with cucumber, and you’re left with a fresh, light, refreshing, sweet juice full of greens.
11. Pear Juice
All you need to make a lovely pear juice is 1 ½ cups of peeled, cubed pears and your juicer.
Like apples and oranges, this pear juice recipe can be made in a matter of minutes and provide you with essential nutrients and minerals, as well as a refreshing wake-up call.
Again similar to apples, pears have a tarty, sweet taste that varies depending on how ripe they are. Personally, we love to make our pear juice out of the sweetest pears possible but tart pears are nice too.
Making this pear juice is also a great idea if you have some leftover overripe pears that you don’t want to throw out.
If you’re looking for something a little different, why not try this delicious spicy tomato juice recipe.
Packed with fruity flavors and featuring a hint of spice, this juice looks vibrant, tastes fresh, and comes with a host of different health benefits.
The main health benefit this juice offers is increased weight loss. You could also see an improvement in your eye health and a reduction in cholesterol levels by drinking tomato juice regularly, so make sure you give it a try.
13. Strawberry Juice
In our opinion, summer hasn’t officially started until you’ve made this beautiful, flavorful, vibrant, juicy strawberry juice.
Nothing beats the flavor of the strawberries in this simple juice, so be sure to make a batch for your next BBQ party.
The sweetness of the strawberries is already enough but if you want to add more flavor to the juice consider adding a dash of lemon or lime. This adds a great burst of bitterness to the juice.
Aside from that, nothing else is needed to make this fruity drink. If you’re feeling a little naughty, why not add a shot of your favorite spirit to the juice too.
Pineapple and kale are both good for you in their own right, so when they’re added together in this juice they help create a brilliant superfood juice.
Kale is packed with anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties, whilst pineapple is super sweet and sour, and contains plenty of vitamins and nutrients.
Pineapple is also believed to aid digestion and give the immune system a boost which is always good.
Some people choose to make this recipe with spinach instead as it contains more Vitamin A and calcium. For us, kale goes much better with fruits like pineapple.
If you want to bring a sense of vacation to your backyard this summer, you simply have to try this tropical pineapple orange mango juice recipe.
Just like that tropical fruit cocktail you’d have on vacation before diving in the sea for a morning swim, this fruit juice is super sweet and full of healthy nutrients and minerals.
As you can tell from its name, this juice is made out of pineapple, oranges, and mango. It’s also worth noting that it contains no added sugars.
The tarty flavor of the pineapple is balanced out perfectly with an explosion of citrus from the oranges. The mango gives the juice its thick vibrant yellowy-orange color.
16. Peach Juice
An interesting and very tasty juice not many people tend to make is peach juice. Peaches are vibrant, juicy, and sweet, making them a great fruit to turn into a juice.
Available in three varieties (clingstone, freestone, and semi-freestone), you can use any peach to make this juice. Better still you can use fresh or frozen peaches.
The type of peach you use will affect the overall flavor of your juice but you can still expect it to be juicy, sweet, and refreshing.
For this recipe, you only need your peaches and a juicer.
If you want to cleanse your body and start everyday the right way, you should consider having this cucumber pineapple juice every morning when you get up.
Made from cucumber, pineapple, and celery, this juice is perfect for detoxing, increasing energy levels, and promoting weight loss. In fact, we’d go as far as saying it’s one of the best juices you could ever make.
This recipe also calls for chia seeds (see also ‘28 Chia Seed Recipes You Need To Know‘) and flaxseeds. Both of these types of seed are full of fiber, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids, and don’t worry, you won’t notice the seeds once you’ve blended your juice.
18. Plum Juice
Why not make a delicious plum juice next time you get your juicer out of the cupboard. These small, vibrant, sharp tasting fruits make a wonderfully strong tasting juice that can be both sweet and sour.
In fact, more often than not, the skin has a tart flavor and the flesh a divine sweetness. This combination of flavors makes an awesome juice.
Better still, plums also come with plenty of health benefits too. They aid constipation, lower cholesterol, and are packed with vitamins.
Looking for a super simple, quick detox juice to make but don’t know where to start? Look no further than this amazing cucumber detox juice recipe.

In this cucumber juice recipe, you’ll find magnesium, manganese, potassium, antioxidants, micronutrients, Vitamin C, and Vitamin K.
Above all else, this juice will also help to keep you hydrated.
20. Pineapple Juice
The final juice on our list is pineapple juice. Pineapple juice has played a key role in a lot of the juices on our list so far so it seems only fitting to end our list with a juice solely made out of pineapples.
The best thing about juicing pineapples is that they are already super juicy and full of both sweet and tart flavors. As a result, you don’t have to add anything else to the juice.
On top of that, you can make a whole batch of pineapple juice from just one piece of fruit.
