Natural veggie juice is one of the healthiest blender beverages you can possibly make. It’s crammed with nutritional vitamins and is excellent for detoxing the body leaving you feeling on top of the world!
Making a vegetable smoothie recipe using your kitchen blender is usually cheaper, too, and better for the environment since you use your own glass and not a plastic one like they give you at a smoothie shop.
Here’s how we mix a vegetable smoothie at home.
A Basic Healthy Vegetable Smoothie Recipe
- 1 medium size carrot
- 2 celery sticks
- Half an orange
- Half an apple
- 1/2 inch (1 cm) ginger root
- Ice Cubes
Combine the celery, carrot, apple and orange and blend until they’re liquid. Shave a little ginger directly into the veggie juice and then add ice cubes. Continue to blend until it’s all smooth.
Use additional ice if you would like a softer consistency.
Vegetable Crush Recipe
This vegetable smoothie recipe is full of great flavor and vital vitamins. Red bell peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C, and tomatoes are packed full of carotenoid lycopene, which can reduce the chances of developing prostate cancer.
Garlic contains powerful antibacterial and antiviral qualities. Celery is an excellent source of potassium and is a diuretic. You can also season to taste.

- 1 small clove garlic, peeled
- 6 ice cubes
- 6 fresh basil leaves

Place all the ingredients into a blender (except the salt and pepper), and blend until smooth. Taste before and after seasoning, and then blend again.
