Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Working in this order process strawberries, cucumber, apple and carrots through a juicer according to the manufacturer's directions. (No juicer? Blender Variation.)

  • Fill 2 glasses with ice, if desired, and pour the juice into the glasses. Serve immediately.


No juicer? No problem. Try this DIY version of blended and strained juice instead: Coarsely chop all ingredients. First, place the soft and/or juice ingredients in the blender and process until liquefied. Then, add the remaining ingredients; blend until liquefied. Cut two 24-inch-long pieces of cheesecloth. Completely unfold each piece and then stack the pieces on top of each other. Fold the double stack in half so you have a 4-layer stack of cloth. Line a large bowl with the cheesecloth and pour the contents of the blender into the center. Gather the edges of the cloth together in one hand and use the other hand to twist and squeeze the bundle to extract all the juice from the pulp. Wear a pair of rubber gloves if you don't want the juice to stain your hands.

More strawberries... I drank this on the morning of my first day juicing - immediately afterwards I had a boost of energy. The taste was a bit off so today my second day or juicing I added more strawberries and it tastes perfect! A keeper! Pros: Taste Cons: None Read More

My toddler loves it (me too) This is a great way for my picky 18 month old son to get some veggies in. I add a cup of kale to boost the nutrients but otherwise I use the same ingredients as listed. Also I have a Vitamix blender (total beast) so I just cut the produce into large chunks and throw the whole fruit and veggies in. I don't even bother with peeling the cucumber. It's healthier this way because you aren't losing all the fiber you would with a juicer. Pros: Tasty healthy easy Read More

Very Nice Used a Vitamix and was hoping to not have to strain the juice but it was way too thick. Wound up straining and used a fine-mesh sieve which worked but was too time consuming. The juice that resulted from the sieve was very nice but needed to be chilled for better flavor and enjoyment. Mild flavors but will make again using a juicer instead of the Vitamix. I just hate having to throw away all the pulp. Seems like such a waste. Read More

Tasty! My roommates and I are beginner juicers and we all agreed that this recipe is a keeper! Unless you have a vitamix blender you have to do the carrots separately or chop them up really well before putting them in however. Read More

Made it per the recipe using a juicer. Flavors blend well together. It's very refreshing. I'm going to use it as a base recipe to add or omit fruits depending on my desire for sweetness. Definitely became a "go- to". Read More

Best of the 7 Day Juice Plan this was by far the best juice of the 7 day plan. I don't like cucumbers but this masked them pretty well. Pros: Sweet refeshing Cons: Didn't make enough Read More
