See recipe card for quantities.
- Clean and dry produce - Clean and dry the produce.
- Juice the ingredients - Run the produce through the juicer, starting with the celery, then the ginger, beets, and carrots in no particular order. Run the apples and the oranges last so they push out any remnants of the other ingredients.
- Enjoy and store - Enjoy immediately or transfer to air-tight glass bottles, mason jars, or a pitcher to be refrigerated and consumed within 72 hours. Do not freeze.
Hint: When juicing, thoroughly wash the fruits and vegetables to remove any dirt and bacteria.
Substitutions and Variations
- Turmeric - Turmeric is full of antioxidants and curcumin, a natural anti-inflammatory. Use turmeric instead of ginger to make the juice less spicy with a more subtle and earthy taste.
- Apples - Use honey crisp or fuji apples to make the juice sweet and use green apples to make it tart.
- Orange - Use valencia or navel oranges to make the juice sweet and blood oranges or cara cara oranges if they are in season.
- Grapefruit - Add a grapefruit for a tart flavor. Grapefruit is rich in antioxidants and can help reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels. It is high in vitamin C, Beta-carotene, and lycopene.
- Mango - Mango is rich in antioxidants and makes a delicious fruity addition to the juice.
- Cucumber - Add cucumber for a new refreshing flavor. Cucumbers are hydrating and contain antioxidants.
- Spicy - Add a pinch of ground cayenne to add a spicy kick to this juice. Cayenne is known to help with digestion and provide extra protection to the stomach against infections.
- Zinc - Add ½ teaspoon of liquid zinc for extra immune support. Zinc has been known to reduce inflammation, reduce your risk of age-related diseases, and speed wound healing.
I use the Brevile Juice Fountain, but any of these juicers are great too: Hamilton Beach Juicer Machine, Hamilton Beach Premium Juicer Machine, Breville Compact Juice Fountain. Once you make your own batches of fresh juice, you can store them in glass bottles. If you are someone who often buys juice from the store, a juicer is definitely worth the investment! In addition to customizing your own juices, you will also cut down on all of the plastic bottles used in store-bought juice.

How to Store Immunity Boosting Juice
This immune booster juice recipe can be kept in an air-tight glass pitcher or in glass bottles for up to 3 days in a refrigerator. This ensures you get the most out of the vitamins and nutrients before the juice goes stale. The glass bottles are great because you can take them to go and reuse them.
Your juice will taste like anything you put through the juicer. For citrus fruits, remove the peel to avoid any bitterness in your drink. If you are not used to ginger's intensity, add a little first then add more if desired.
