fresh veggie juice in a mason jar with ice

Got 5 minutes to spare? Blend a batch of this refreshing & energizing veggie juice packed with fresh vegetables & a kick of metabolism boosting spicy jalapeño. Your body will thank you!

Before I share the recipe for this great recipe for Fresh & Spicy Summer Veggie Juice in a Jar, let me just tell you that I have fully embraced this month’s Recipe ReDux Theme, Raising the Bar on Food in a Jar.

Here’s the great thing about serving food in jars…

It’s fun, it’s budget friendly {use any leftover jars you already have-no need to buy extra dishes}, and, if you use small jars, it’s a great way to cut down on portion size.

The next time you get an ice cream craving, bust out the little jars instead of the big bowls, & you’ll see exactly what I mean 🙂

In all fairness though, there’s no need for portion control with this veggie juice because it’s super simple, with no added-sugar…

Just fresh summer veggies {heirloom tomatoes, sweet onions, red bell peppers, cucumbers, zucchini}, salt & pepper, + a kick of spice from fresh jalapeño.

That’s it!

How to Make Fresh Veggie Juice in a Blender

  1. Pick your veggies. I like to use up whatever leftover bits and pieces of veggies I have on hand, including leafy greens or fresh herbs.
  2. Pop ’em in a blender.
  3. Blend, baby, blend.
  4. Pour it in jars {over ice is nice}, and serve!

In less than 5 minutes, you end up with the most delicious and super nourishing fresh veggie juice, that looks like this…

Is fresh veggie juice good for you?

This fresh veggie juice is an easy and delicious way to boost your daily intake of fruits and vegetables.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 5 cups


  • 3 cups chopped tomatoes, Heirloom or other ripe summer tomatoes
  • 1 red orange, or yellow bell pepper, chopped in to large chunks
  • 1 cup cilantro, de-stemmed
  • 1/2 sweet onion, chopped in to large chunks
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and chopped in to large chunks
  • 1/2 zucchini, chopped in to large chunks
  • 2-4 slices fresh jalapeno with seeds, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste


  • Place all veggies, except the jalapeno, in a powerful blender, such as a Vitamix, and blend until liquified.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste and blend.
  • Add 2 slices jalapeno, then blend and taste. If additional spiciness is desired, add 2 + more slices jalapeno and blend well.
  • Serve over ice, or chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.


  • Use this recipe as a starting guide for your own fresh veggie juice, but feel free to experiment with other vegetables, based upon your taste preferences, what’s in your fridge, and what veggies are in season.
  • For a low FODMAP option, omit raw onions, or substitute with green onion tops.
  • Adjust the spice as needed! With 4 slices jalapeño, this had a nice spicy zip to it, but feel free to adjust the amount based upon you own taste.
