Why should you start compiling homemade juice recipes?

Because the juice you make yourself is more nutritious, delicious, and wholesome than the juice you buy at the store, the coffee shop, or Jamba Juice, of course!

You control what goes in and, more importantly, you control what you leave out, like preservatives or too much sugar.

Whatever fruits or vegetables you prefer, you'll find that the following homemade juice recipes are fantastic on their own but still endlessly adaptable.

1. Lemon Lime Ginger Ale Recipe

Lemon Lime Ginger Ale Recipe

This is one of my favorite homemade juice recipes, especially come summer time.

The lemons and limes give you a serious boost of vitamin C, not to mention a lovely, refreshing zing wonderfully complemented by the ginger.

And you get all the sweetness you need from the apple and the grapes.2

The whole juice is just lovely!

Ingredients:

handful of grapes

1 apple, cored and sliced

Β½ inch fresh ginger (less if you find the taste too strong)

1/2 lime

1/4 lemon

sparkling mineral water

Directions:

Remove the grapes from the stem.

Juice the apple and ginger together, then juice the rest of the fruit.2

Pour the juice in a large glass and fill to the top with sparkling water and serve with ice.

2. Power Gulp

Power Gulp

A lot of these recipes are health driven, starting with this wonderful green juice.

The veggies mix beautifully with the fruits, coming together to create a crisp, sweet, refreshing drink that really boosts your energy.

Thanks to the kale, especially, you get so many nutrients – it's a super juice made from a super food!

Drink this if you're pregnant or around your period, especially if you get really bad cramps.

Ingredients:

1 cup sliced kale (from about 3 large leaves)

1 cup seedless green grapes (about 28)

1 English cucumber, thickly sliced

1 small Granny Smith apple (4–6 ounces), cored and cut into chunks

1/2 cup water

Directions:

In a blender, combine kale, grapes, cucumber, apple, and water;

blend, scraping down sides occasionally, until smooth.

Strain juice and, if desired, thin with additional water.

Before serving, garnish with a fresh kale leaf and a cucumber slice (optional).

Refrigerate up to 2 days (shake before serving).
