3 Easy DIY Juice Recipes

Making raw, fresh vegetable and fruit juices using a home juice extractor is all the rage these days.  For first timers, it can seem time consuming, labor intensive, and extremely intimidating, especially because of its association with juice fast diets and cleansing regiments.

But actually, juicing occasionally when you feel like it and purely for the pleasure of experimenting and trying delicious juices can be a really fun, creative activity.  And with the help of FreshDirect, juicing can actually be way more convenient than its reputation would lead you to believe.

This week I made three juices that totally rocked my world.  FreshDirect makes it so easy to get your hands on tons of fresh, high-quality produce without having to step foot in a grocery store and schlep everything back to your kitchen.  And as you’ll see, some of the produce comes already cut and washed!  If you own a juicer or have access to one, you should definitely give these recipes a try.  Happy juicing!
