9 Juice Recipes For Diet And Weight Loss

Published by: Chef Jan Dubsky • Updated: October 19, 2023 • Checked By: Chef Matty Riedel

Maintaining a healthy diet is no easy task. Especially when we venture out onto a weight-reducing journey. While juices don’t have any mysterious fat-burning superpowers, they can help you conveniently add extra nutrients to your diet and promote weight loss. It is one of the best ways to eat more vegetables without losing valuable vitamins and minerals that lower their content during cooking or exposure to high heat. Find juice diet recipes that we prepared for you further below!  

There are many diets and eating plans out there. The most popular is probably a low-carb or whole-food diet. The same method may not work for everyone. Always consult your doctor first on any diet plan you consider following. 

Juice Diet Recipes 

If you are on a weight loss crusade, sacrifice all your favourite comfort foods. These recipe ideas may spark some inspiration and bring ideas on including juice in your daily diet. 

Healthy Refreshment 

In case you are a regular drinker of sugary soft drinks and sodas, it may be a real challenge to remove them from your diet and jump directly on pure water. Replacing these fizzy refreshments with flavorful juices from fresh ingredients may be a good way to start. Coffee and tea, with no added sugar or milk, have no calories. However, they are the best drunk in the morning for their caffeine content, whereas juices can be enjoyed throughout the day. Vegetable-based juices are most suitable for the evening and before sleep when we should consume fewer carbohydrates. Eating a light and nutritious dinner will not stress our digestive system, resulting in a good sleep.

Ways To Boost Your Weight Loss 

Regular exercise triggers fat burning in your body. It helps make the most out of your new weight-reducing eating habits. See if you can fit a few fitness visits into your weekly schedule. Exercising doesn’t have to be only weightlifting. Get back to sports you did before, or start something completely new. If you are not keen on sports, try incorporating more movement into your daily life. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, or get off a bus stop earlier and walk the rest.  

Good sleep is also very important for well-being. It helps maintain weight and overall vitality. A balanced diet may help improve your sleep and make you feel well-rested in the morning.  

Tips On Making Fresh Juice 

Invest in quality appliances. A good juicer will squeeze and extract almost every drop of your fresh ingredients. A few juicing machines are on the market, each using different techniques to process fruits and vegetables. With different mechanisms comes a different price as well. Cold press juicers make juice with the most nutrition preserved in it. It takes a bit longer to make, and they are still quite pricey. Centrifugal juicers extract liquids a lot faster, almost every drop of it. This can be seen in the dry pulp left in the waste container. Some models are affordable, compact, and packed with powerful performance.  

What To Stock Up On 

It is good to always keep some juice-rich ingredients in your fridge if you want to make some quick diet drinks. This is the list of a few ingredients that are best for juicing. You probably have most of these ingredients in your fridge already.  


Carrots are low on calories and carbs but rich in nutrients. It may help with blood sugar control and reduce the risk of heart disease. Its mineral and vitamin composition may also improve skin health. It is a cheap, accessible vegetable with a lot of juice within its fibres, one of the best vegetables to juice.  


Celery can be seen in many juice recipes these days. People say it has weight-reducing properties. Although more scientific research is needed to prove this claim, you should still include a few stalks in your juice. It contains a lot of vitamins and antioxidants. High water content also helps hydrate your body. Abundant flavonoids help protect the body against inflammation. 


Rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This green superfood, unfortunately, loses most of its nutritional value when cooked as the heat lowers the number of bioactive compounds. Eating raw broccoli takes some time to get used to. However, adding it to the juicer extracts its rich content seamlessly and directly into the glass. Use all parts of the Broccoli, including the stalk.

This leafy vegetable with a mild flavour can be used in almost any recipe. It pairs well with fruit, too, especially pineapple. It is high in antioxidants and may contribute to the improvement of eyesight and healthy skin. 


Maybe you didn’t think about juicing cabbage. Its sturdy texture makes it easy to extract its nutritious juice, full of vitamin C. Flavour is mild and easy to blend with most ingredients. 


To bring more creativity into your diet juice recipe book, try Zucchini. It is easy to juice and pair with a lot of other ingredients. Its low-calorie density and high water content may bring the feeling of fullness and contribute to weight loss.  


It’s my favourite type of juice. Consuming beets is linked to many health benefits, including lowering blood pressure and improving blood flow. Usually, they have to be boiled or roasted for a long time. Exposure to high heat lowers the nutrition content. Juicing fresh, raw beetroot can enrich our diet in seconds. 

Bell Pepper 

Juicing peppers is not that common. Besides being a source of many vitamins and minerals, they also have a juicy texture. Their slightly sweet flavour can balance the sweetness in your recipes without adding any fruits. Why not give them a try? 


Cold, fresh cucumber juice will bring similar refreshment as store-bought soda, if not better. Give it a try on hot, sunny days. Low on calories and carbohydrates and full of water content. It is a great vegetable to build your recipes on.  


Another ingredient with high water content and low calories. Carbs amount to roughly 4% of its content. Tomatoes are rich in carotenoids, especially lycopene, which may help lower bad cholesterol. Did you know that, botanically, it belongs to the fruit family, not vegetables?  


If you are bored of vegetables and looking for fruity refreshment on hot days, go for watermelon. Although it is a fruit, it has low carbs and calories. High water content makes it a very hydrating fruit. It can be a guilt-free drink to include in your weight loss diet. 

Additions To Your Diet Juice 

Stock up on a few of these ingredients to add further nutritional value. They are easy to pair with most fresh fruits and vegetables. They may put a new twist on the recipes that you may find boring already. 


A spice used in cooking and alternative medicine for hundreds of years. It has powerful antioxidant properties and can help fight inflammation. Some studies claim that it may help improve weight reduction. 


Another spice loaded with antioxidants. Cinnamon is an inner bark of specific species of trees. It is usually ground to a fine powder when used in cooking. Use it to enhance the flavour of your recipes. It goes exceptionally well with carrots, ginger, tomato or mint.  

Chia Seeds 

This South American superfood should be on the list of your daily diet. It contains many antioxidants and nutrients, especially those important for bones. Chia seeds may help reduce appetite and help regulate blood sugars. 


A new trend in the whole food diet promotes wheatgrass for its health-beneficial properties. It may help reduce cholesterol and aid weight loss. It is easy to grow at home and is used fresh in cooking or juicing.

Diet Juice Recipes For Weight Loss 

1. Hot Carrot Celery Juice 


  • 1-2 big carrots 
  • 3-4 stalks of celery 
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger 
  • 1 Apple (optionally)


Carrot and celery go together naturally well. Ginger adds a hot and refreshing flavour.

If you are not too strict on carb intake, throw an apple into the mix.

2. Lean Green 

juice diet recipes


  • 1 medium-sized Broccoli 
  • ½ medium-sized cucumber 
  • 150g fresh spinach 
  • ¼ of small cabbage 
  • 30g fresh parsley 
  • ¼ large lemon


This nutritional powerhouse will bring good nutrition to fuel you throughout the day. Use broccoli raw, including the stem. Add parsley with spinach altogether into the juicer’s feeding tube.

Press it slightly in your hands before juicing, making a ball. The harder texture will make it easier to juice. Using a powerful centrifugal juicer, you could use the whole lemon without peeling if it hasn’t been waxed.

3. Tomato Tornado 

juice diet recipes


  • 3 medium-sized tomatoes 
  • 1 Zucchini 
  • 3-4 stalks of celery 
  • 30g of fresh parsley 
  • 1-2 bird chilli peppers


Tomatoes have a high water content.

Chilli improves digestion.

Have this juice cocktail after lunch or dinner for an additional nutritional boost and easier digestion.

4. Minted Beets 

juice diet recipes


  • 3-4 raw beetroots 
  • 1 cucumber 
  • ¼ cabbage 
  • 20g mint 
  • ¼ large lemon


Cucumber will add water to this recipe, diluting the thick, nutritious texture. Lemon brings the whole mixture together with a refreshing, citrusy tone.

Enjoy this nitrate-rich drink, especially before exercise. Dietary nitrate supplementation may improve endurance.

5. Zucchini Medley 

juice diet recipes


  • 1 medium-sized broccoli 
  • 1 Big Zucchini 
  • 150g Kale 
  • 1 medium-sized carrot 
  • 1 red bell peppers


At first, it may resemble a glass full of soup, more than juice, and I don’t blame you. It is most suitable to drink after dinner for extra nutrients that can be distributed throughout your body while sleeping.

Zucchini has a mild flavour, going well with broccoli or other leafy vegetables. Carrots and bell peppers bring many carotenoids and a refreshing, sweet balance.

6. Cucumber Pomegranate 

juice diet recipes


  • 1 big pomegranate, deseeded. 
  • 1 cucumber 
  • 20g mint 
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger


Pomegranate is a popular fruit to juice across the Mediterranean and Middle East Asia.

It may improve exercise performance as it may enhance blood flow thanks to the high levels of dietary nitrate. Its relatively low-calorie content makes it a good fruit for a weight-loss diet.

7. Zesty Watermelon  

juice diet recipes


  • 300g Cold watermelon 
  • 2 stalks of celery 
  • ½ lime 
  • Fresh mint


Juice everything, excluding the mint. Add fresh mint to the glass with your watermelon. Start with watermelon if you miss fruit or crave something a bit sweeter.

Composed mainly of water, it is naturally low in calories and carbs. Juice it fresh, right out of the fridge, if possible.

Lime adds a crisp balance to the drink. You won’t need to put any ice in the glass to quench your thirst on hot days.

8. Spinach Detox 

juice diet recipes


  • 2 kiwi 
  • 1 apple 
  • 100g fresh spinach 
  • ½ lime 
  • ½ Cucumber


This juice is high in vitamin C and antioxidants, thanks to kiwi and spinach.

Pick a soft and ripe one. It will add sweetness to the drink. Have it in the morning for a fresh start to the day.

9. Silk Road 

juice diet recipes


  • 1 Apple 
  • 1 Big carrot 
  • ½ lime 
  • 3 stalks of fresh lemongrass


Apples and carrots go together naturally well. Lemongrass doesn’t contain much juice. However, the oils within its fibres give this recipe a rich, fresh aroma.

It is not very suitable for blending because of its hard structure. The fibres won’t break down that easily, leaving a smoothie full of lemongrass splinters, whereas a juicer can deal with it without fuss. You can find it in most Asian grocery stores.
