Now that you’ve gone out and picked up the best juicer you can, it’s time to start experimenting with different juice fast recipes!

In an effort to make this list more compact and concise, I have listed the ingredients of each of these juice fast recipes in the order they should be juiced to get the most from your fruits and vegetables. Some foods are juicier than others and help to wash previous juiced foods through better.

Also, do juice fresh herbs mixed in with the ingredient listed above them. Doing so will help to keep their tiny, light weight leaves in the blades and under more pressure helping to squeeze out more juice. You can, also, pour a few tablespoons of water into your juicer after the last ingredient has gone thorough to help wash all the juice out. Fruits and vegetables not allowed in your juicer, such as avocados or bananas, should be mashed and added to a blender with the rest of your chosen juice recipe. And, I weighed everything with the peels or rinds on. Lastly, don’t forget to wash all your produce before juicing to make more savory juice fast recipes.

Seasonings we like to add to our juice fast recipes so far: Fresh cracked black pepper, Hot Sauce, Taco Seasoning, Dill and tajin Clasico Seasoning – found in the produce section by garlic, dried tomatoes and such.

I would like to add, too, that not all recipes here are designed for juice fasting. If you are using these recipes to nourish a juice fast, choose the recipes that do not have fruit blended into them in a blender (this will make your stomach work harder to digest). Choose recipes that are made up of mostly vegetables with many containing dark leafy green vegetables – kale, collard, spinach and such. This is very important for cleansing and getting the most benefits from fasting. Also, I would recommend not adding any tabasco or other seasonings to your juice. Keep your juice as pure and as organic as you can. If you’re going to go through the process of juice fasting, it’s best to get as much from all your efforts as possible.

Lastly, I’m looking into the idea of mixing in gelatinous type foods into the juice along with good fats like chia seeds while fasting… If anyone has done this, feel free to chime in and let me know how it affected your fast. Thanks friends.

For everyone else not juice fasting and just wanting to enjoy fresh, good tasting juice – have at it!

Frozen Juice Cubes
I have juiced cantaloupe, honey dew, strawberries and other fruits, poured separately into ice cube trays, and froze. Dump a few frozen juice cubes into a glass and pour some fresh juiced lemon aid over them – easy peazy. You can do this with all kinds of different combinations for your juice fast recipes. The kids thought it was great!

We hope you enjoy our juice fast recipes, and I’ll be adding more as we discover new ones we like. I did a whole lot of juicing and Randy did and still is doing a whole lot of drinking… I have to laugh thinking about what I just wrote. What a change from 20 years ago… Randy drank just like this then too, maybe even more, but it sure in the hell wasn’t fruit and vegetable juice! Lol…

Here’s to drinking to your health, literally!
Skol and Nostrovia!
Randy and Amy
