Work your way up to those fruit-free recipes that die-hard juicers love with these sweeter concoctions that will get you excited about your new juicing habit.
P.A.M. (Pineapple, Apple, Mint) Juice
Start off on a very sweet note with a juice that just about anyone will like. With only three palate-pleasing ingredients, this belly debloater — inspired by BluePrint Cleanse's blockbuster P.A.M. juice — may be short on vegetables, but it's big on taste.

Sweet Greens Juice
Now that you're getting used to your juicer, it's time to add a few more nutrients into the mix. This sweet greens juice recipe, inspired by the Evolution bottled cold-pressed juice sold at some Starbucks locations, has a little bit of everything: celery, lettuce, cucumbers, and apple, among other produce. If you want to make it sweeter, decrease the amount of celery used.
