The reason we use apples in most juices is because they are sweet but aren't an overpowering flavour. Apples are great for juicing as they don't need peeling, but people often do remove the core. Apples go well with pretty much every other type of fruit and vegetable, and add a great flavour to your juice.
Apricots are very sweet and juicy fruit which makes them perfect for juicing! You don't need to peel them, as the flesh can be juiced – just make sure you remove the stone first! Some reports have said that Hunza People, who were noted for their exceptionally long life expectancy – would eat high amounts of healthy organic foods like apricot.
Artichokes are one of the oldest foods known to man. The heath benefits of them are great – and so perfect for juicing! They are high in Vitamin C and are said to help prevent the development of toxins in the liver. Artichokes have many health benefits, having said this, the taste can be quite bitter, so mixing them with other fruit and vegetables when juicing can help mask this flavour.
Asparagus is a vegetable that is very rich in protein. It's also very high in Vitamin C, when buying asparagus look out for shoots that are a very rich green colour, as these have higher levels of Vitamin C, and so are better for you. When juicing, asparagus needs to be mixed with other fruit and vegetables, as the juice has a very strong flavour, so use sparingly! However this is down to personal taste.
Bananas don't juice, however they can be added to juices as they give thickness and fibre. They have great health benefits and are one of the greatest sources of natural energy. They are over 80% water, which is nutrient rich and hydrates the body.
