If you’re not already on the juicing bandwagon, you’ll be ready to jump on by the time you get to the end of this list of delicious, energizing juice recipes. Juicing is an extraordinarily efficient way to get your vitamins, minerals and antioxidants straight from the source, rather than from a bottle. The flavor possibilities are virtually endless – try these recipes, ranging from spicy to sweet and creamy, or experiment to discover your favorites.

Pear, Mango & Spinach Juice

If you’re new to green juices, here’s a recipe that will pack in lots of nutritious spinach without tasting like grass. It’s green as can be, but you’ll be so bowled over by the favor of pear and mango that you won’t even notice. Get the recipe at Katie’s Cucina.


New Moon Midnight Juice

If the tantalizing color of this juice doesn’t lure you in, maybe the combination of pomegranate seeds, cranberries, oranges, lime and mint will. This juice is meant to be part of a detoxing cleanse by Cycle of the Moon, but it’s also just plain delicious.


Blood Orange Chili Juice

Don’t have a juicer? You can still make this tasty concoction. Just squeeze some bright red blood oranges and add spicy serrano chili and sweet agave nectar. Jennifer Chong has the recipe.

Sweet Beet Juice
