Vegetable and Fruit Juicing Recipes In The Omega 8007 Juicer

Warning: There is nothing real estate related in this post outside of possibly needing a back yard to grow your garden!

I wanted to write this post about juicing for a few reasons. First, this is a great way for me to find my own recipes and add to them down the road. I do reference my own posts from time to time. The second reason is I’m really excited about juicing and eating healthier and anyone that happens to find this post, I hope they take a great recipe away with them. Not only does drinking a nutrient-rich glass of life feel great, so does sharing it! And the third reason is I saw that Juliet Easton just ordered her fancy, shmancy Omega juicer and Mr.¬†Ben Perry who is also a serious juicer asked me to share some juicing recipes. Those are great reasons to write about another passion of mine… juicing!

There is a LOT of information out there about juicing and the benefits of juicing daily. I could probably write a completely separate blog about the topic. Not to mention growing your own garden, sprouting, growing wheat-grass, choosing organic, composting, juice pulp recipes and more. Seriously, there are hundreds of posts I could write about the subject. This little post is going to strictly be about recipes and great combinations of fruits and vegetables. Whether you’re just starting or experienced, having at least one power-packed juice a day is extremely healthy and beneficial. I won’t go into my detox or daily routine because like I said, I could go on about it for days, but please share your recipes, ideas and thoughts in the comments below. I love learning about new combinations, health benefits and all things juicing!

The juicer I use is the Omega 8007, cold press, slow masticating, ¬†juicer. I use this one because it’s really great for greens, It’s the only one to use for wheat-grass, it doesn’t heat the produce, it extracts more juice than the vertical ones, it’s super easy to clean, fits perfectly under my cabinet and it doesn’t create a lot of foam. Oh, and you can make sorbet, nut milks, pasta, nut-butters and more with this thing. I can’t say enough!

When it comes to my juice recipes I don’t measure! I know most will have amounts of items, but I have found that sizes vary, availability varies, etc. I sometimes forget what goes well with what and I don’t always have every single ingredient. Things like fennel, dill, cabbage or cauliflower sometimes throws me off. I will typically just wing it with what I have fresh daily. I don’t really go by specific amounts of each. I kind of just go in order from the main, prominent ingredient being the first thing on the list and all others become less and less down the list. There’s times where I make a huge batch at once for everyone, too. I don’t always have two fennel bulbs, maybe I only have one. Sometimes I just have one grapefruit left, etc. So my recipes don’t have amounts, just the produce in order from the most to the least. As long as you use the items together in order of importance it makes a great drink. You really can’t go wrong.

Another thing to mention, when I’m starting to gather up my ingredients, I typically fill an entire Pyrex, glass 9×13 pan. When I say fill I mean everything is piled and almost falling out. That typically gets me four 16-oz juices. (Except for wheat-grass. That’s just a few ounces.) All ingredients will yield different amounts of juice. When I’m doing a pineapple recipe, I will get a lot more juice, naturally. I like to use 16-oz. mason jar mugs with lids. They’re my favorite. They have a handle and of course you have to shake well before each drink due to settling so the lid is a must. I bought a ton of them at Marc’s, about a dollar each. I like glass because it can be sanitized, (juices do stain and the residue can be a pain to clean) I do have plastic bottles I will use if I’m heading out. BPA-free of course. I told you I could go on for days… There are just so many things to write about. So, here are my favorite recipes and I’d love to know yours!

  1. I love sticking parsley and cilantro in there. Half a bunch at a time and it just chomps it down. Fennel and dill are fun too. The greens are actually a lot more fun on the Omega than the root veggies or fruit. You will love it. Glad I could share some strange combos that are delicious! A little trial and error on my part… Watch out for those hot peppers! WOW, I did two Habaneros once thinking the other greens and fruit would dilute it, nope.

  2. Juliet says:

    Wow! These look AMAZING! So many combinations that I’d never thought of!

    Right now I’m doing a juice cleanse with my champion. I’m doing this:

    Carrots
    Celery
    Cucumber
    Beet

    Thanks so much for writing this!
    Once my Omega arrives, I’ll add in greens and parsley.
