Sweet Greens Sleepy-Time Juice

High in magnesium and calcium, this sweet greens juice [4] supports a healthy night's sleep. Full of greens like watercress and hydrating romaine, this sleepy-time juice still has a little sweetness, thanks to the inclusion of orange juice.

Cinnamon Ginger Nectar

I love the creative addition of spice to this cinnamon ginger nectar [9] green juice. While the spice may seem like an odd addition, but cinnamon actually helps keep blood sugar down [10].

Celery, Apple, and Greens Juice

One POPSUGAR Food editor took on the challenge of re-creating one of our favorite store-bought juices at home, and the resulting blend was well worth her effort. A little more "green" than the juices you've had until this point, this celery, apple, and greens juice [13] will make you a green juice convert for good.

Basic Green

Are you a newbie to the juicing scene? This green juice [14] is a fantastic place to start. The color may have you a little wary at first, but the apple, carrot, and lemon juice will mask a flavor that's too green for a juicing newbie.

P.A.M. Juice

Stop shelling out a ton of money for bottle after bottle of store-bought BluePrint. This homemade P.A.M. juice [17] mimics the flavors (and benefits) of the original. Pineapple, apple, and mint are the ultimate refreshing combination of flavors — and if you're looking to get a little boozy this P.A.M. mojito [18] will hit the spot.

Hangover Juice

Full of the essential nutrients (think: vitamin C, lycopene, and hydrating water) that your body is depleted of from drinking, this pressed juice [19] also gets a spicy kick from the added jalapeño and ginger. Even if you're not working with a hangover, this juice will taste like a treat.

This detoxifying juice [20] from Ritual Wellness has just the right amount of spice to get you going. With only three ingredients that support your immune system and aid in digestion, it's a great recipe for someone who wants the benefits of green juice without the hassle of dealing with a bunch of ingredients.
