Ginger aids in digestion and adds a bit of tropical flair to this juice that is loaded with antioxidants

carrot-apple-ginger-refresher

Carrot, Apple, and Ginger Refresher

If you’d like this drink to be more tart, use plain instead of vanilla fat-free yogurt. For a garnish, twist a thin slice of carrot on a small skewer.

Cucumber, Apple, and Mint Cooler

Drink this to boost your daily veggie count: Each serving of this smoothie offers a half-cup of vegetables, plus a little fruit.

mango-punch

Mango Punch

Don’t judge a mango by its color—it isn’t a good sign of ripeness. Instead, choose a mango that gives slightly when you gently squeeze it.

orange-carrot-refresher

Orange-Carrot Refresher

Ginger paste and mint paste are available in resealable tubes in the produce section of the grocery store. If you can’t find the pastes, substitute 1 tablespoon grated ginger and 10 mint leaves. Combine the first 6 ingredients in a blender and process until smooth, then pour the mixture into a pitcher and stir in the carrot juice.

peachy-grape-cooler

Peachy Grape Cooler

Frozen peaches do double duty in this frosty drink: Not only do they add flavor, they keep the drink cold without diluting it as ice would.

ruby-sipper

Ruby Sipper

Beets are nutritional powerhouses, giving you vitamin C, iron, potassium, and fiber. Choose beets with fresh-looking green tops, and wear gloves or use a kitchen towel when handling them to prevent your fingers from getting stained.

star-fruit-quencher

Star Fruit Quencher

The star fruit, or carambola, is the “star” of this beverage and tastes like a blend of apple, pear, and citrus fruits. The entire fruit is edible. Here, it is pureed and then strained to create a delicious, fragrant juice.

strawberry-kiwi-juice

Strawberry-Kiwi Juice

Make this when you want a large dose of vitamin C: Kiwifruit contain more of the antioxidant than oranges, and strawberries are a good source of C, too. Kiwifruit has also been shown to support eye health.
