Here are the best easy juicing recipes using fresh fruits and vegetables: no juicer required! Whip up these healthy drinks in a blender.



For the green juice

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 medium apples, cut into chunks
  • 3 cups baby spinach leaves (or chopped spinach or baby kale)
  • 2 celery ribs, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and roughly chopped
  • ½ tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice

For the carrot juice

  • 1 pound carrots (2 ½ cups), chopped
  • 1 large apple, chopped
  • 1 large orange, peeled
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the celery juice

  • 8 medium-large stalks of celery (about 1 bunch), roughly chopped
  • 1 large green apple, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon or lime juice (optional)

For the cucumber juice

  • 1 large English cucumber (or 1 to 1/2 standard cucumbers, peeled), roughly chopped
  • 1 green apple, chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ½ tablespoon lemon or lime juice (optional)

For the watermelon juice

  • 4 cups cubed seedless watermelon, chilled

For the grapefruit juice

  • 2 pink grapefruits, quartered and peeled
  • 2 large apples
  • ½ cup ice
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon honey, maple or agave syrup, plus more to taste (optional)


  1. In a blender: Place the ingredients (except citrus juice) in a blender. Blend on high until pureed and a juice forms. Pass the juice through a fine mesh sieve or a nut milk bag to strain out the pulp (skip this step for the watermelon juice). Discard the pulp (or use: see ideas above). Stir in the fresh citrus juice (add more if desired). Drink immediately over ice, or chill before drinking.
  2. In a juicer: Add all ingredients to a juicer, except the citrus juice. Stir in the fresh citrus juice (add more if desired). Drink immediately over ice, or chill before drinking.
