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…

  • 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.
