Once you know all the benefits of juicing, why not try these delicious recipes for yourself?

Which Fruits and Vegetables Are Best?

You can juice almost all fruits and vegetables, with the exception of:

  • Avocados
  • Bananas
  • Leeks
  • Eggplant (Aubergine)
  • Figs

Depending on the type of juicer you have, fruits and vegetables with tough skins may need to be peeled:

  • Citrus fruits
  • Kiwis
  • Melons
  • Pineapples
  • Mangos

The world is your oyster, you really can try any combination you like — in fact, the more variety in your diet, the more nutrients available to your body. Many of these nutrients are found just under the peel, so when possible buy organic and leave the skin on. One of the great things about juicing is how easy and simple it is: there are no precise measurements or exact cooking times — you can use these recipes as an inspiration to create your very own healthy cocktails. These recipes will give you around one portion of juice, depending on your juicer and the size of your produce.
