Amount of Juice Recipes Produce

Reboot Newbies

Posted by txred on 5 years ago

Ok, folks, I need a little assistance. I've been reading some of the messages here that say we should be drinking 16oz of juice for our "meals." Most of the recipes I've made from the Reboot plan don't make anywhere close to 16oz per serving. I often get 22 -24oz of juice from a recipe. I use average sized produce and have a good quality juicer (Omega VRT masticating) that gives me dry pulp.

So, here's my questions: Do I just keep adding fruits/veggies until I get 16oz/serving? Or do I just drink the amount I get?

    Just add some more veggies. Cucumbers, Carrots, Apples, Celery make more juice. So just add a little more of those. The Leafy Greens don't make too much juice. You should end up with about 14-16 oz per serving.

    When I started with my Breville I weighed the produce "as bought" prior to trimming, peeling, etc. Then I weighed the juice produced. It averaged out in the 50% range. More with wet stuff and less with dryer stuff. Leafy greens don't "seem" to make much juice but are probably OK by weight, especially with your Omega. I usually go for a quart and every juice I make has a "base" of perhaps celery, apple, whatever. I juice what looks like to me is a happy, heaping helping of my "target" vegetable like spinach and/or kale and finish with may base (or bases) like celery, apple, jicama or whatever. I now do my green juices with an Omega NC800 and have not weighed produce/yield. I know I want a quart. I can fill a bowl with kale, spinach and wheatgrass. Then it's just a matter of working in the "base vegetables" to make the quart. I strain everything from the Omega which very slightly reduces yield but I like my green clean. I view "juice recipes" to gain opinions of what goes well with what. "Recipes" are a guideline, not instructions.

    If you are getting 20-24oz per recipe and you want 16oz, you need less... not more produce :-) Or you could add a bit more to reach 32oz and store the second serving in a mason jar for later.
    Since fruit and veggies are produced by Ma Nature, they can have high or lower water contents, varying from week to week or day to day. I usually get two 16oz servings from 4 oranges and 5 carrots, but sometimes the oranges are just not as large or as juicy, so an extra one has to go in.
    As you go through and make little notes on recipes, you will figure out what works best with your juicer and the produce you typically have access to :-)

    Thanks so much for the replies, everyone! I really appreciate the support.

    JuicyKrys, in answer to your questions, I'm generally making a "double batch" or recipe that makes two servings. I'll make sure I get enough produce into the machine to give me 16 oz per serving.

    On a side note, I've lost 15 pounds in 13 days and feeling great! Hurray!!!
