Here are some of my favourite free juicing recipes. I hope you enjoy them. Don’t forget the great thing about juicing is you can easily adapt and develop recipes to suit your own palette.
I hope that these free juicing recipes give you some great juices that might even become some of your favourites too. I think you can’t have too many ideas and recipe combinations when it comes to juicing. As it’s always best to use fruit and vegetables that are in season (for freshness and cost) it encourages you to try out new recipes with things that are readily available to you.

Next feed the mint leaves into the juicer followed by the rest of the melon. Squeeze the juice out of the limes and stir it into the juice. Serve over ice and add mint leaves for decoration.

This juice has a fabulous fusion of apple and fragrant spice providing a refreshing exotic drink. It makes a pleasant change to have a fizzy juice.

To get the full flavour from the lemon grass pound it with a rolling pin and make cuts in it, but try to keep it whole. Place this into a jug.
Peel the root ginger and cut into chunks along with the apple. Push both the ginger and the apple through your juicer and add to the jug.
If possible leave it in the fridge for an hour to let the flavours infuse.
Half fill a couple of glasses with the juice and then top up with sparkling water.
