Last week I released my first recipe round up post, 30 Easy And Oil Free Vegan Recipes To Get You Through January , and it's been super successful on the blog so just wanted to take a sec to say thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing it with friends and family all over social media! Together we are making a difference and spreading plant based awareness and making the world a healthier place. 😉
Anyway, I enjoyed making that round up post so very much that here I am again, with yet ANOTHER round up recipe post in January haha! I'm on a roll.
This one is all about JUICES! Now, I know what you must be thinking. 'Oh no, not another juice cleanse, fast, detox..."
Nope! None of that. I have actually never done a cleanse, or fast, or detox .. mostly because I love food too much ha! But no worries, if you ARE a fan of those, this list will give you plenty of options to choose from for your cleanse if you're into that.
What I do love is adding juices to my diet, not taking anything away. Based on my personal experience - when I drink one fresh cold-pressed juice every morning on a consistent basis I feel more energized, my skin is clearer, and that usual brain fog feeling goes away. And overall, I just feel healthier about doing it ha!
Other reasons why I love adding juices to my diet:
- It's an easy way to get a bunch load of fruits and veggies that I otherwise wouldn't eat.
- It's a great breakfast for those who are on the go.
- It keeps me off of coffee. (I love coffee, never giving this up. But on the days that I juice I can usually skip the coffee.)
- Because drinking 1/2 cup of arugula juice is much easier than eating a whole bag of it. 😛 Am I right?
- Juicing is a great way to clean out your fridge or use extra scraps of veggies that you have around. For example - kale stalks or wilted greens that are about to go bad. Save them by juicing them!
***A few things about this list***
- Some recipes require a juicer, but not ALL of them. Some can easily be done in a blender. You will notice some titles are blue and some are green. The GREEN ones mean that they can be done without a juicer and in a blender. 🙂 I wanted to make it easier for you to pick out which ones are best for you, in case you don't have access to a juicer right now.
- Juice recipes are flexible. You don't need to follow them to a T. You can use this guide as a general idea of what fruits and veggies you can combine to create juices. Feel free to experiment with what you currently have at home in your fridge.
Thank you to all of the food bloggers all around the web (and the world!) that submitted their recipes and images for this round up!
Okay friends, enjoy the recipes! And remember to share the love. <3

A delicious super green juice comes from my friend Tamsin over at Cupful of Kale. It only requires 5 ingredients and you don't even need a juicer! Throw everything in a blender and strain. 🙂 Plus, aren't her pictures gorgeous?! Go check it out.
This juice has got it going on! It's pretty. It's purple. And it's filled with a powerhouse of veggies!!! You see, not all juices have to been green and terrible tasting. 🙂
A delicious green juice that is sweetened naturally with apples. Perfect for those who are just beginning to juice and are not too fond of the taste of veggies!
Yum! Strawberry and Peach sounds like the perfect combination. And you can make it in a blender. And you get a dose of apple cider vinegar which is never fun to drink alone!
Winter days are rough and a lot of us tend to get sick around this time. Give your immunity a boost with this yummy carrot and orange juice! There are two methods - one with a juicer and one with a blender.

If you're not a fan of sweet juice, then this one has your name written all over it. It's spicy and tangy and low calorie! You also don't need a juicer nor a blender, if you buy the tomato juice already pressed.
This is more of a smoothie than a juice, but since there is spinach in there it gets a pass. 😛 This is another great recipe to make if you do not own a juicer. Also, the recipe does call for a bit of coconut oil but if you're oil-free, no worries, just skip the oil and I'm sure it's still going to be super tasty!
