Vegetable Juicing Recipes

Have A V8? Not

Move over V8, there’s a new sherriff in town and its name is “home-made” vegetable juice. While many are standing in line at the local Starbucks or perhaps a getting a sugar rush from the super sized Jamba Juice, there are many who are content with having a V3, V4 or V5. Vegetable Juice converts have replaced the old school V8 juice that I grew up drinking with my dad; with something new and exciting. No more shelved, canned or bottled vegetable juices with the unnecessary salt and preservatives
