You just watched a demo DVD of a juicer you purchased. The excitement you feel about preparing your first juice is palpable. It would be fantastic to pull off that complicated masterpiece the demonstrator just showed. In fact any of these advanced recipes are great.
Steady And Slow Said The Tortoise
Now that you have finally bought that long-awaited juicer, you are determined not to just let it sit idle on your counter. Unlike other appliances you have bought, you want to actually put this one to good use. So you figure instead of preparing one of those beginner juice recipes, why not jump ahead to the advanced ones? After all, how hard can it be?
This “go get em” attitude to get started is to be applauded, but the recipes for beginners are not just named that as a joke. There are solid reasons to start slow and build up to the intermediate and advanced levels of juicing. One, your body is not used to drinking natural juices. It is not the same as drinking juice bought at your local grocery store. The consistency and taste are vastly different.
Beginning Recipes For Novice Juicers
Any manual from the juice equipment or website that explains how to get started juicing will tell you to ease your way into it. Some will suggest doing it once a week to begin, while others will say only drink half a glass. No matter what the advice, it all boils down to mixing a couple fruits together first, followed by vegetables later.
Start out making juice with apples, mint, and ginger. Then mix 4 large carrots with the tops removed to a half pineapple. Next try mixing 1 orange, 1 apple, 1 large carrot, 1 peeled grapefruit, and ½ peeled and seeded cantaloupe. Another beginner recipe calls for combining ¼ large red bell pepper, 1 celery stalk, ½ peeled lime, 1 small apple, and a few cilantro sprigs. You can go online and type “Juicer Recipes for Beginners” in Google if you need some inspiration. There are many bookstores and websites that will give you plenty of recipes and suggestions. So be adventurous, but smart as you enter the world of juicing.
