Juicing is a great way of including more fruit and vegetables in your diet, especially those we don’t eat enough of. For me cabbage is one such vegetable. Even though I really like it I admit it’s not a vegetable I use a lot of in my everyday cooking. Not sure why. Perhaps because it is not as easy to prepare as carrot or cucumber are, for example. So if like me you would like to include more cabbage in your diet the easiest way to do this is to make this Cabbage Juice 3 Ways.
Each juice recipe contains 2 vegetables (cabbage and one other) and 1 fruit. I find that this combination provides just the right amount of sweetness to enhance the flavour of the vegetables (raw cabbage juice is not very sweet and it pairs really well with naturally sweet ingredients).
Making your own juice is much cheaper than buying it in a juice bar or supermarket (and probably fresher, too). You can keep any unused fresh juice in a bottle or jar in the fridge for a couple of days.
Why not take a bottle of your homemade juice to work or pop it in your child’s lunchbox (see more Healthy Lunchbox Ideas < HERE >)?
Each recipe yields approximately 450 – 500 ml of juice.

Cabbage Carrot Apple Juice
This is a very inexpensive juice recipe using popular ingredients. Carrots and apples taste great together and the cabbage adds a little sharpness and tones down the sweetness of the other ingredients.
300 g white cabbage
2 medium carrots (unpeeled)
2 medium apples (unpeeled)
Cabbage Cucumber Melon Juice
This juice recipe is very refreshing, perfect for the hot days that I am sure will be coming our way very soon (winter won’t last forever!).
300 g cabbage
1/2 cucumber, peeled
1/4 honey dew melon, peeled, deseeded
Squeeze of lemon juice
Cabbage Beetroot Orange Juice
These 3 ingredients would make a great salad, but are equally delicious in a juice. This combination of ingredients also creates a vibrant, rich colour!

2 oranges, peeled
