Better Than V8

Better Than V8 is a great mix of fruit and veggie juices mixed together that will keep you coming back for more. Several glasses of this a day will keep you away from the doctor and on the track of good health.

2 Large Carrots (can substitute with yam or mix together)

2 Large stalks of celery

1/2 Long English Cucumber

2 Healthy sized handfuls of spinach, mixing or adding some Kale works well too

1 Fair sized stalk of broccoli (about the amount you'd cook for 1-2 people for dinner.

1 Fair sized chunk of cauliflower (roughly the same amount as broccoli)

1/2 Granny Smith apple

1/2 Large green pear

1/4 beet (peeled)

1 tomato

small bit of parsley

Yields 2 extra large glasses or three medium. (1 full pitcher with a Breville Juicer)

* Use only one of the fruits for a less sweet taste.

* I've also thrown in a hand full of grapes with stems.

a nice surprise
by: Anonymous

Was fairly skeptical that this would taste remotely pleasant, on my second glass already today. Wondering if someone could help me though? New to this and uncertain on how much juice i should be drinking each day. Any ideas? Cheers

***Drink as much as you like, but best taken on an empty stomach.

storing juice
by: sally hawthorn

sometimes i juice double the amount and store until next day in airtight jar in fridge is this ok it also saves cleaning juicer each day?

*****Fresh is always best, but what you're doing is great, particularly if it works for you and keeps you juicing. Good job on the airtight jar too.

Really Good!

I didn't have a pear so used two small apples and it was a really good juice. Will make this again, or a version of it depending on what items I have on hand.
