Making juices from fruit and vegetables can be a great way to use up gluts of crops from the greenhouse and kitchen garden, and they’re also a tasty option if you want to boost your vitamin intake, especially if the ingredients have been freshly harvested.

Go easy on the fruit

Too many fruit sugars (fructose) can be just as unhealthy as the sugar in cakes and biscuits, so when you’re making your juices make sure you balance the sweetness with leafy greens such as kale, spinach or lettuce. And don’t forget, you can freeze some crops for use later on in the year.

Tasty Juice Combinations

Experiment with different fruit and vegetables to see what you tickles your taste buds, but here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Carrot, apple and ginger
  • Cucumber, celery, and apple or pear
  • Lemon basil, spinach, cucumber and apple
  • Blueberries, kale and apple
