Vegetables are absolutely vital to keeping you healthy and fit. Yet with work, your family, and social life, you may have trouble finding the time to get your fruits and veggies in. That’s where cold-pressed juicing recipes for weight loss come in. 

Combining the health benefits of a superfood salad with the convenience of a liquid, juicing is an excellent way to get more fibre into your diet. Fibre is a tried-and-true method to help you lose weight. That’s because it helps your body feel fuller for longer and slows down the digestion process.

While juice should never replace all your servings of fruits and vegetables in a day, it’s a fantastic way to supplement food-derived nutrients. 

Juicing for weight loss is effective and convenient. So, what are you waiting for? Check out these 5 cold-pressed juicing recipes and learn about the incredible benefits of juicing for yourself!

5 Juicing Recipes for Weight Loss and Overall Health

Here’s the thing about juice and weight loss: not all juices are created equal. In fact, a 2015 review suggests that fruits and vegetables containing high fibre content and a low glycemic load are significantly correlated with a healthy weight. 

That means you should be juicing fruits like:

  • Berries
  • Apples
  • Pears

Meanwhile, you should be juicing soy, cauliflower, and cruciferous vegetables into your weight loss elixir. By the way, cruciferous vegetables are better known as leafy greens and include kale, broccoli, bok choy, and more!

Want your weight loss juice recipe to be a no-brainer? Let us do the work for you — check out these 5 incredible juicing recipes for weight loss!

1. Banana-Berry Gut Health Promoter

Recent research suggests that improving the diversity of your gut microbiome may promote weight loss efforts. Sound good? Then you’re going to love this juicing recipe that’s designed to improve your gut health.

Combining the probiotic powers of bananas, blueberries, and raspberries, this juice may be simple, but it packs a serious punch. Blend your Banana-Berry Gut Health Promoter with your favorite fermented drink for even more gut health-supercharging effects. 

Here’s the recipe:

  • 2 Bananas
  • 1 Cup of Blueberries
  • 1 Cup of Raspberries

Halve the bananas before juicing; you can keep the berries whole. Centrifugal juicers aren’t the best at juicing bananas, so avoid this recipe if that’s all you have. 

2. The Green Cure

Forget hair of the dog — say hello to your new favorite hangover cure. Bursting with water-based veggies and carb-rich fruits, you’ll rehydrate while also replenishing vital nutrients to have you feeling like yourself. This juice is also great for weight-loss since it’s low calorie yet nutritionally dense. 

With celery, cucumber, and tart green apple, this juice isn’t just for hangovers. Add some ice to enjoy this juice on a hot summer day, too!

Here’s the recipe:

  • 3 Stalks of Celery
  • 1/2 of a Large Cucumber
  • 1 Medium-Sized Green Apple

Add the stalks of celery to your juicer whole. The cucumber should be quartered, and the apple should be cored and cut into chunks before adding to your juicer. 

3. Orange Ya Glad

Orange fruits and vegetables are a great source of carotenoids, which have been implicated for their weight loss benefits. For example, a 2019 study found that individuals with higher levels of carotenoids in their fat cells had lower levels of adiposity or obesity. 

That’s why we love this recipe. The added Vitamin C from the oranges helps positively affect your mood. At the same time, carrots improve your immune system function. And don’t forget about the grapefruit and pineapple, both of which are great for metabolism and digestion.

Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 Medium-sized Grapefruit
  • 2 Oranges
  • 2 Cups of Pineapple
  • 1/2 Cup of Carrots

Make sure to peel and quarter the grapefruit and oranges before adding them to your juicer. Add the pineapples and carrots in chunks. Also, keep the carrot skins intact for added nutritional benefits!

4. Beet the Morning Blues

Looking for a healthier way to wake up than your regular cup o’ joe? Search no further than this beet-rich juice recipe. This juice combines the immunity-boosting powers of our Banana-Berry Gut Health Promoter and the antioxidant-rich benefits of our Superfood Slim recipe

How is that possible? Beet the Morning Blues contains beetroot, which is an excellent source of natural, non-jittery energy. Plus, with lemon, pear, and blueberries to round it out, you won’t miss your sugary coffee after sucking down one of these bad boys. 

Here’s the recipe:

  • 2 Medium-sized Beets
  • 1 Cup of Blueberries
  • 1/4 Lemon
  • 2 Large Pears

Cut the beets into quarters, and the lemon rind should be removed before juicing. Core the pear and cut it into chunks. The blueberries can be added to your juicer whole, one handful at a time. 

5. The Superfood Slim

Scientists have been studying the positive effects of antioxidants on weight loss for decades now. You can harness the benefits of antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies in this juicing recipe. 

Choose spinach to harness the powers of lipoic acid and apples for sweetness and their high concentration of procyanidins and catechins. Add in a few catechin-containing blackberries and cinnamon, which provides procyanidin, for extra flavor and a lovely fall color. 

Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 Large Honey Crisp or Red Delicious Apple
  • 1 Cup Washed and Dried Spinach Leaves
  • 1 Handful of Blackberries
  • 1 tsp Freshly-ground Cinnamon

Core and cut the apple into chunks. Add the spinach to your juicer, stems and all. Keep in mind that a centrifugal juicer may not be able to juice the spinach properly.
