fall juices

Forget the pumpkin latte. There are other fruits and veggies to transform into delicious drinks! Whether you’re trying to detox, boost your immune system, or you simply love fruit and vegetable juice blends, you’ll want to check out our picks for the seven best juicing recipes for fall.

Note: For all juicing recipes, always select organic fruits and vegetables when possible. If budget or availability don’t allow for all organic produce, emphasize organic options for produce listed under the Dirty Dozen.

Remember the juicing recipes and methods outlined here are only a guide. Always follow manufacturer recommendations for speed settings and rules on peeling, coring or chopping produce prior to juicing. If you use a blender rather than a juicer for these juicing recipes, you may want to strain your juice to remove seeds and skins.
