UK Juicers Favourite Recipes

All our juice and smoothie recipes are carefully selected and we believe them to be both delicious and highly nutritious. The ingredients are not set in stone however, so feel free to play around with quantities or even to substitute items for whatever may be available: it's all good!

 

Carrot, Apple & Ginger

  • 8 Medium Carrots
  • 2 Apples (Cox's, Royal Gala or Braeburn)
  • Slice of root Ginger (to taste)

Carrot, Apple & Ginger makes a delicious starting point for those who have never tried vegetable juices. It has superb nutritional qualities: carrots are a good source of Vitamin A and Beta Carotenes, providing anti-ageing and cancer-fighting antioxidants. Apples have an abundance of pectin which forms a gel that breaks down toxins in the intestines and helps maintain a healthy bowel function. Ginger is an excellent tonic for the entire digestive system. In fact, Carrot & Apple is a staple drink of the Gerson Institute of Cancer Therapy.

This drink can be easily made with any fruit & vegetable juicer from our range. Carrots need to form the majority of the juice otherwise the flavour of the apples will dominate. The ginger provides a nice touch of spice, but use it sparingly - it's powerful stuff!

Carrot & Spinach

  • 6 Medium Carrots
  • 100-150g Fresh Spinach

Carrots are one of the richest possible sources of Vitamin A and also contain an abundance of Vitamins B, C, D, G, E and K. Spinach is probably the most vital food for the entire digestive tract. It is naturally abundant in Vitamins C and E as well as iron and folic acid, which provide excellent blood building properties and help protect the body against anaemia.

With the above factors taken into account, Carrot & Spinach is an extremely nutritionally beneficial combination. It is also (surprisingly to some) very pleasant tasting.

Whichever juicer is being used it is normally best to feed a small amount of spinach followed by carrot. If using the Champion Juicer it is best to actually feed the spinach with the carrot. This juice also works well if carrot is replaced by apple. The pectin in the apples and folic acid in the spinach make a combination that is particularly effective in removing built-up plaque from the intestines.

Apple, Pear & Lime

  • 3 Apples (Cox's, Gala or Braeburn)
  • 2 Pears ½ a Lime

This juice is simple but refreshing and delicious. As well as containing carotenes, pectin, potassium and Vitamin C from the apples, the pears provide an excellent source of soluble fibre.

Simply juice the ingredients in any combination. Peel the lime before juicing, but if you want more zest in the drink, leave some peel on.

Carrot, Parsley, Spinach & Celery

  • 4 Carrots
  • 1 Small Handful of Flat Leaf Parsely
  • 100g Fresh Spinach
  • 2 Sticks of Celery

Parsley, particularly the flat leaf kind rather than the curly, provides a very potent herbal juice. As such, it should never be taken in too large a quantity. Its properties can help maintain healthy blood vessels and a normal function of the adrenal and thyroid glands, while also acting as a diuretic. The combination is believed to provide excellent qualities for regenerating and healing tissues within the body.

This juice can be made with any fruit and vegetable juicer, but when using the Champion, celery sticks should be cut into 3 so the fibres do not wrap around the cutter, and carrot should be alternated with the feeding of other ingredients.

Apple, Celery & Ginger

  • 3 Apples (Cox's, Gala or Braeburn)
  • 4 Sticks of Celery
  • Slice of root Ginger (to taste)

Another delicious juice, this is rich in celery - an important source of sodium which is beneficial for the nervous system. The high mineral content of the drink makes it excellent before or after strenuous exercise.

When using the Champion juicer be sure to cut the celery into small sections.

Carrot, Greens and Hemp Milk

  • 40-50g of Hemp seeds (preferably germinated)
  • 4 Medium Carrots
  • 100g Spinach
  • 2 Sticks of Celery
  • Fresh Rosemary (optional)

Hemp is one of the most nutritionally complete foods available and is rich in Omega 3,6 and 9 Essential Fatty Acids. It is also an excellent source of protein. To get the best out of hemp it needs to be thoroughly washed and it is often a good idea to soak the seeds for 8-12 hours to start germination, and perhaps even to sprout them as this can increase nutrient availability.

This drink is best made with a twin gear juicer. A small amount of hemp should be placed in the feeding chamber and fed down with harder produce. To really break down the hemp it is best to re-feed the pulp once or twice.

Pink Grapefruit & Orange

  • 3 Oranges (Valencia if possible)
  • 1 Large Pink Grapefruit

Citrus juice makes a superb breakfast drink when the body is active in its detoxification cycle. As well as the nutritional benefits of orange juice, the grapefruit in this drink is rich in beta-carotene and bioflavinoids, particularly naringin, which is renowned for thinning the blood and lowering cholesterol.

This juice is best made using a dedicated Citrus Juicer

Pomegranate & Orange

  • 5 Oranges (Valencia if possible)
  • 2 Pomegranates

Pomegranate and Orange tastes exquisite and is deliciously refreshing at any time of day. As most people know, oranges are an excellent source of Vitamin C. They also contain bioflavinoids, calcium and Vitamin B6 among others. Pomegranates contain beta-carotenes, heart-protecting phytochemicals and Vitamin E.

You'll need a powerful Manual Citrus Press like the Orange X juicer to make this drink.

Wheatgrass Zinger

  • 1oz Fresh Wheatgrass Juice
  • 1 Apple
  • ½ a Lemon
  • Slice of Ginger (to taste)

A Wheatgrass Zinger provides an excellent introduction to wheatgrass and may be preferable for those who aren't too keen on the intensity of straight wheatgrass juice!

Simply juice the wheatgrass in the appropriate juicer followed by the remaining ingredients. Sip it slowly and enjoy!

Banana & Berries Smoothie

  • 1 Large Banana
  • 1 Large Handful of Strawberries or other Berries
  • 2-3 Apples Yoghurt (optional)

Smoothies are a delicious way to conveniently introduce large portions of fruit into the diet and comprise a simple, nutritious meal in a glass.

Prepare the bananas and berries as appropriate and freeze them. Strawberries are commonly used in smoothies, but blueberries, blackberries and raspberries also make excellent choices. Place the frozen ingredients in a blender or 'smoothie maker'. Juice the apples and add to the blender with the yoghurt if desired. Blend until smooth then serve immediately and enjoy this fantastic drink.

Banana, Passion Fruit, Raspberry & Pear Smoothie

  • 2 Pears
  • 1 Large Banana
  • 1 Passion Fruit
  • 7 or 8 Raspberries

This smoothie works well as the subtlety of the pear juice allows the other flavours to dominate the drink: the result is fantastically refreshing.

Prepare and freeze the banana, passion fruit (scoop out the inside and freeze in an ice-cube tray) and raspberry. Place in a blender, juice the pears and add to the mixture. Blend and serve immediately.

Banana, Papaya, Apple Juice & Lime Juice Smoothie

  • 1 Large Banana
  • 1 Papaya
  • ½ a Lime
  • 2-3 Apples

A delicious smoothie rich in Papaya - a good source of the digestive enzyme Papain.

Peel and scoop out the insides of the Papaya before freezing with the banana. Add to a blender along with the freshly juiced apples and lime. Blend well and serve immediately.

Pineapple, Mango, Apple, Lime & Ginger Smoothie

  • 4 Rings of Fresh Pineapple
  • 1 Mango (Indian when available - virtually never)
  • 5 Apples
  • 1 Lime
  • Slice of Ginger (to taste)
  • 4 Healthy Dollops of Fresh Yoghurt

The combination of pineapple, mango, lime, ginger and yoghurt has to be tasted to be believed: it's rather special. Even more so if you're lucky enough to find a supply of Indian or Pakistani Mangos.

This drink serves 2. Prepare and freeze the mango and pineapple. Add to a blender followed by the juiced apples, lime and ginger. Finally, add the yoghurt, blend well and serve immediately. Put on some soft music, light the candles and invite someone you like round to share this drink.

Pineapple, Mango, Passion Fruit & Orange Smoothie

  • 2 Rings of Fresh Pineapple
  • ½ a Mango
  • 1 Passion Fruit
  • 3 Oranges (Valencia if possible)

A lovely, refreshing smoothie perfect for sitting out in the garden on a summer's day.

Peel, prepare and freeze the pineapple, mango and passion fruit. Passion fruit freeezes well in ice-cube trays. Place the frozen ingredients in a blender followed by the juice from the oranges. Blend well and serve immediately.

Banana "Ice Cream"

  • As many Bananas as you like!

Not an ice-cream at all. This has got to be one of the most simple, healthy and surprisingly delicious desserts to make.

Simply freeze the required amount of bananas and run through any masticating juicer using the blank screen. The banana "ice cream" comes through the pulp ejection nozzle to be collected in a bowl. You'd never think something so basic could taste so good!

Chopper's Raw Salsa

  • 2 Large Tomatoes
  • 8-10 Cherry Tomatoes
  • ½ a Red Pepper
  • ½ a Stick of Celery
  • ¼ of a Red Onion
  • ½ a Clove of Garlic
  • Fresh Green or Red Chilli (to taste)
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • Small Bunch of Fresh Corainder

A raw salsa makes a superb, healthy addition to any meal. Simply wash and prepare all the ingredients; the salsa can be made in one of two ways.

Firstly, place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend to the desired consistency. Serve as a dip with raw vegetable crudities or corn tortillas and salad, or a side dish with any meal.
