ImageWhenever I take a trip to the grocery store, I am inclined to buying a natural fruit juice like Odwalla or Naked. While these fruit and veggie juices are delicious and nutritious they can also be a bit pricey for those of us on a budget. As an alternative I have opted to making my own fruit and veggie juices.

When I first began making my own juices, I would stick to simple juices such as carrot juice, apple juice, pineapple juice etc. With time, I’ve learned to mix and match fruits and veggies to not only make tasty juices, but to also make them as delicious and nutritious as possible.

I’d like to share one of my favorite juice recipes with you, all in hopes of inspiring you to give juicing a try. This recipe requires that you own a juicer, but if you do not own one, I suggest you chop all the ingredients into smaller pieces and mix them in the blender.

Tangy-licious

Ingredients: (yields about 16 oz.)

  1. 4 carrots
  2. 3 large stalk celery
  3. 4 oranges
  4. ¼ of a pineapple cut into spears
  5. 1 small lime
  6. Tajin or cayenne pepper (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Wash fruit and veggies
  2. Peel skin off the oranges
  3. Cut the celery stalks in half
  4. Cut the top off the carrots (do not peel the carrots)
  5. Peel lime
  6. One by one, insert fruits and veggies into juicer (no particular order)
  7. Stir juice thoroughly and pourImage

**To add zing to the juice, I like to top my juice with a pinch of Tajin (a chili powder) or some cayenne pepper. It makes the juice that much more delish **
