Drink your Greens
Many customers are looking to incorporate more vegetables into their diet, so a green juice is a great thing to offer them. This juice is tasty but also includes vegetables for added nutrition. Spinach is an excellent source of minerals such as potassium and magnesium, and vitamins B6, B9, and E.
Citrus juices are classic and loved by many diners. This grapefruit juice incorporates strong flavors of mint and ginger with the tang of grapefruit and orange for a fresh drink that can be enjoyed any time of day.
Another trend in juicing is to drink antioxidant-heavy juices. A juice with antioxidant-rich fruits and added flavor of lemon will keep customers healthy and happy. Antioxidants can help give your customers more natural energy.
Tangy and Healthy
Carrots can be a perfect base for a mixed fruit and vegetable juice because of their mild flavor and texture. Try adding these flavors together to make a healthy and tangy drink. Turmeric and carrots are a great, natural anti-inflammatory.
Apples and Berries
This recipe is tasty, quick, and easy to make. The carrots in this recipe add some vegetable nutrition while the fruit adds a sweet taste.
More on Juicing
These are just a start in an endless list of juice recipes that you can create with a commercial juicer. Try experimenting with recipes on a unique daily menu and get customer feedback. Or, offer a juice tasting to diners to learn about what types of juices they like. This tasting could be a great way to survey to decide what kinds of juice to introduce to your menu.
