This image is for the article "What Fruits and Veggies Juice Well Together? 10 Tasty Combinations" and discusses the best fruit and vegetable juice combinations, such as pineapple juice with orange and carrot juice with celery.

Juicing fruits and vegetables is a delicious way to get a concentrated burst of nutrients into your diet. Extracting the liquid from fresh produce allows you to consume more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants than you could by simply eating whole fruits and veggies.


But not all produce blends well when juiced together. Certain combinations create flavors that are less than palatable. Other fruit and vegetable pairings, however, result in fresh, tasty juices that will have you coming back for sip after sip.


So what fruits and vegetables actually juice well together to create flavorful and nutritious beverages? Here I’ll share 10 of the best fruit and veggie juicing combinations to try at home.



 

Best Basics for Juicing Fruits and Vegetables


Before diving into specific juicing combinations, let’s overview some of the best basics when it comes to juicing produce.

Fruits tend to contain more natural sugars and fluids than vegetables, resulting in higher juice yields and sweeter flavor profiles. They blend well with leafy greens and tart veggies to create balanced juices. Some top fruits for juicing include:


  • Citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruit, lemons

  • Berries like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries

  • Tropical fruits like pineapple, mango, papaya

  • Melons such as honeydew, cantaloupe, watermelon

  • Apples, pears, grapes, cherries



Vegetables have lower sugar content but offer more vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. They produce less juice than fruits but add nutrition and flavor. Good veggies for juicing include:


  • Leafy greens like kale, spinach, chard

  • Root vegetables such as beets, carrots, sweet potato

  • Cruciferous veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage

  • Celery, cucumber, tomatoes, peppers

When combining fruits and vegetables, a general rule is to use 60-85% veggies and 15-40% fruits. This results in well-balanced juices that aren’t overly sweet. But feel free to adjust ratios to suit your tastes.

Now let’s explore 10 of the tastiest fruit and vegetable combinations for juicing.



 

1. Orange Juice Blends


Oranges make an ideal base for fruit and veggie juices. Their sweet, tangy flavor combines beautifully with other produce.

Some refreshing orange juice blend ideas include:


  • Orange, carrot, ginger - A vitamin C powerhouse

  • Orange, beet, carrot - Earthy and sweet

  • Orange, kale, lemon - Tart and green

  • Orange, grapefruit, pineapple - Tropical citrus

  • Orange, apple, strawberry - A fruit lover's dream


Orange juice blends are naturally sweet so you can add more veggie quantities without compromising on taste. They make a great introduction to veggie juicing.



2. Green Juice Blends


Leafy greens are packed with chlorophyll, vitamins, and minerals. Combining them with sweeter, milder produce helps offset their sometimes grassy flavor.


Some green veggie juice ideas include:


  • Cucumber, kale, pineapple, lemon - Refreshing and hydrating

  • Cucumber, celery, spinach, apple, ginger - A green juice classic

  • Kale, parsley, green apple, lime - Herbaceous and tart

  • Spinach, romaine, pear, basil - Mild and sweet

  • Kale, grapefruit, green apple - Bitter and tangy

Aim for at least 50% leafy greens in these combos. The fruits and veggies balance out the intense green flavors.



3. Beet Juice Blends


Vibrant purple beets contain antioxidants and nutrients that support heart health and exercise performance. But their earthy flavor can be polarizing.


Combining beets with fruits and veggies like:


  • Carrots, orange, ginger - A sweet complement

  • Apple, celery, lemon - For a tangy twist

  • Pineapple, orange - To mellow the earthiness

  • Cucumber, berries - For added nutrients

Beets have high sugar content, so they produce juice easily. Keep beet quantities around 25% or less in blends to avoid overpowering other flavors.

Packed with vitamin A, carotenoids, and minerals, carrots make a healthy, sweet addition to fruit and vegetable juices.


Some refreshing carrot juice combinations include:


  • Carrot, orange, celery, ginger - A classic for a reason

  • Carrot, apple, lime - Sweet tartness

  • Carrot, beet, spinach - Vibrant and earthy

  • Carrot, pineapple, lemon - Tropical and tangy

Thanks to their mild flavor, carrots complement both fruits and veggies in juices. For balanced nutrition, aim for at least 50% carrot juice in blends.



5. Berry Juice Blends


Berries like strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries add vibrant color, antioxidants, and sweetness to juices. Their gentle flavors allow them to complement both fruits and vegetables.


Some nutritious berry juice combinations to try:


  • Strawberry, pineapple, orange - Tropical fruit

  • Blueberry, pear, spinach - Fruity and green

  • Raspberry, beet, carrot - Pink Perfection

  • Mixed berries, apple, kale - Sweet and earthy

Since berries are relatively low in sugar and calories, you can use higher ratios of around 50% in blends.



6. Melon Juice Combinations


Melons like honeydew, cantaloupe, and watermelon have high water content and gentle sweetness. This makes them perfect for mixing into fruit and veggie juices.


Refreshing melon juice ideas:


  • Honeydew, lime, cucumber - Cool and crisp

  • Watermelon, strawberry, mint - Sweet berry mix

  • Cantaloupe, peach, pineapple - Tropical fruit

  • Mixed melon, grapefruit, carrot - Fruity and acidic

With their high juice yield and mild flavors, melons can be used as the predominant ingredients in blends.



7. Pineapple Mix-Ins


Like melons, pineapple is hydrating and packs a juicy sweetness that enhances other produce. It brings a tropical flair to juices.


Some tasty pineapple juice combinations include:


  • Pineapple, apple, spinach - Sweet green juice

  • Pineapple, peach, mango - Tropical trio

  • Pineapple, carrot, ginger - Bold and bright

  • Pineapple, beet, orange - Tangy and earthy

Pineapple combines especially well with leafy greens to mask any bitter notes. Use it in 25-50% ratios for best results.

8. Grape and Apple Juice Blends


Both grapes and apples have relatively neutral flavors that make them perfect additions to fruit and veggie juice combos. They add light sweetness and balance without overpowering.


Some grape and apple juice ideas:


  • Grapes, spinach, carrots, lemon - Sweet veggie blend

  • Apple, celery, cucumber, lime - A green juice staple

  • Apple, beet, carrot - Sweet earthy combo

  • Grapes, pineapple, orange - Tropical fruit

Aim to use grapes and apples in 25-50% ratios as their mild flavors won’t hold up as predominant ingredients.



9. Tomato Juice Combos


Yes, tomatoes technically are a fruit! And their savory umami flavor enhances vegetable juices beautifully.


Some tasty tomato juice blends:


  • Tomato, carrot, celery - Savory classic

  • Tomato, beet, spinach - Earthy and rich

  • Tomato, bell pepper, parsley - Garden fresh

  • Tomato, cucumber, dill - Cool and herbal

Tomatoes are great complementary flavors. Keep them to 25-40% of veggie juice recipes for a flavor boost.



10. Avoid Certain Combinations


While most fruits and veggies can be blended into tasty juices, there are a few combinations best avoided:


  • Excess apple or grape juice can overpower other flavors

  • Too much cabbage or broccoli can create unpleasant sulfuric tastes

  • Strong veggies like garlic and onion are best minimized

  • Smooth fruits like bananas and avocados don’t juice well

  • Some fruits like mango, guava, plum don’t blend perfectly


In general, experiment with produce you enjoy eating raw for the best results. And adjust your ingredient ratios until you find combinations that excite your tastebuds.
