My go-to energy booster is almost always veggie juice. My body thrives off of the nutrients that the combination of veggies provides. This Healthy Veggie Juice to Boost Energy is my staple go-to when I am feeling run down.
Feeling tired all of the time, napping more often or struggling to keep up with daily activities?
I get it... I have been there, numerous times actually.
Of course, there are always more things to look at when it comes to health and I am not a doctor. However, as a Holistic Nutritional Clinical Practitioner, I have seen the benefits of how much veggie juicing can help for some people.
Adding healthy raw veggies to your lifestyle doesn't need to be difficult and no need to consume sugar loaded juice.
Juicer: I am in love with my Breville Juicer. I have tried a lot of juicer's and there is no one better than I have tried than the Breville. I am on my 2nd one actually. They last a really long time but I am not that easy on mine and use ot daily.
Vegetable Peeler: You don't need anything fancy. I like a basic veggie peeler.
Knife: I do suggest investing in a quality knife. It isn't necessary but one of those things that you realize does speed things up slightly once you have one.
Cutting Board: Make sure your cutting board is BPA free. This cutting board great because it has a groove to catch any juice as you cut which avoids it all ending up on your counter. I love the little compartments as well!
The ingredients are simple for this energy-boosting juice. It makes a great immune booster as well!
- Carrots: Great source of beta carotene which the body converts to Vitamin A.
- Cucumber: Aids in digestion as well as low in calories.
- Lettuce: I prefer Kale or Romaine in my juices.
- Celery: Although I think of all veggies as superfoods, I use celery in almost everyone because it is so powerful. It doesn't get the credit it deserves. Celery is packed with phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals.
- Apple: Leave the skin on because it has about half the fiber.
- Lemon: An acidic fruit that converts to a base in the stomach which is super helpful for digestion!
- Sea salt: Adds to the flavor.
Step 1: Peal your carrots. If you use your own garden carrots or you purchase organic leave skin on and wash really well. Depending on the size of the opening in your juicer you may need to cut your apple in half. Wash all veggies well!
Step 2: Juice your veggies. Start with the hardest on high speed and as you go through softer veggies, slow the speed down on your juicer.
Step 3: Keep your veggie pulp and use it in baking muffins! Honestly, your kids will never know.
I highly suggest that you enjoy this veggie juice with our Vegan Maple Whiskey Roasted Nuts recipe. The combination make the taste buds so happy!
Enjoy this as your morning juice or anytime of day to give you added nutrients!
Start slow if you are new to juicing and work your way up. Start with half a cup. For some, veggie juice can cause a detox reaction which can make you temporarily feel worse.
Serve as a energy juice shot if your with a group and everyone needs a boost!
- If you struggle with blood sugar spikes from veggie juices, have a glass of water first and/or add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to add good fat to help reduce the speed of the natural sugar boost.
- Eat half an avocado well you enjoy your juice can also help balance the natural sugars.
- Protein like a handful of nuts can balance sugars.
- If you are starting slow you can purchase mini mason jars for storing or to take them to work with you!
"In the past five years, some studies have found a potential link between certain juices and health:
Kale juice may improve lipid levels, such as cholesterol, which affect your risk of heart disease.
Carrot juice may reduce oxidative stress in cells in women treated for breast cancer. Citrus-based juices and carrot juice may reduce heart disease risk."www.health.harvard.edu
For this healthy veggie juice to boost energy, I think it is best to leave the ingredients as they are but you can certainly try out different combinations.
- Add in a small amount of cod liver oil to boost your nutrients intake.
- Add some coconut cream and toss it into the blender to make a delicious smoothie!
- Some cumin or paprika sprinkled onto the top spice it up.
I always recommend that you drink your veggie juice right away but many people do make enough for a week at a time.
Fridge: If you do store in fridge use a mason jar and only for 2 days.
No, not at all. You can use whatever you have! It will taste slightly different but that is ok!
Absolutely? Lemon helps to balance the taste and is really good for you but you can omit both lemon and salt, it will still taste good!
No problem! If you have a blender, simply add all ingredients and begin to pulse until you are able to fully blend. Then strain the juice through a cheesecloth or a fine strainer.
Juicing is just another way of consuming veggies not a replacement.

Healthy Veggie Juice To Boost Energy
- 2 large carrots
- ½ English cucumber any cucumber is fine.
- 1 roman lettuce head or lettuce of your choosing.
- 4 celery sticks
- 1 medium apple sweeter apples taste best.
- ½ lemon fresh, squeezed
- pinch sea salt or to taste
- Peel carrots if desired and cut apple if needed.
- Wash all vegetables. Add vegetables one a time to the juicer. Add the harder vegetables first, followed by the softer vegetables.
- Once your veggie juice is made, squeeze in your lemon juice and add the sea salt.
- You can leave the leaves on the celery but I find it can make it taste a bit bitter. If you do, consider adding a bit more lemon juice and sea salt to balance the taste.
