Most of us think of juicing as an expensive deal but is it really the case? What we’ve found that people often fail to act smartly. Wrong selection of the ingredients, personal preferences, and many other factors cost much more than it should.

The truth is, you can continue juicing throughout the year without spending as much as most of us anticipate. Let’s show you how you can save money without compromising on nutrition:

Go Local

Nature feeds us with alternatives. One thing grows in one area and its substitute grows on another land. Make sure to select the locally available vegetables and fruits. And change your ingredients seasonally. In this way, you don’t have to use stored products. Fresh fruits and vegs are the keys to good health.

Don’t Overdo Juicing

A balanced diet is important. Sometimes people tend to overdo juicing which increases the cost and doesn’t really serve the purpose. Avoid drinking more than 3 glasses of juice a day. In this way, you actually reduce the intake of fresh water. Your appetite for solid food also drops down.

Love Gardening

The best way to cut the cost short is growing your own fruits and vegs. If there is a shortage of space, you can grow various vegs in the plant-pots. Having a small orchard is a real gift as you can grow some native fruits without any problem. A little care, devotion,and knowledge about the local vegetation is all that you need to serve the purpose.
Now is the time for the countdown of our top 5 healthy and cheapest juices.

1. The Kale-Fruit Collaboration

Time required = 3 minutes
Quantity = 12 ounces


Kale - 2 leaves
Banana (ripe) - 1
Orange (peel removed) - 1
Strawberries (halved) – 1 cup
Carrots - 3


Push the ingredients one by one through the juicer. (Make sure that the carrots go at the end). Stir it and drink immediately before the oxygen degenerates the kale’s nutrition.

Early morning (before breakfast) is the best time for this juice.

(DO NOT use a centrifugal juicer for this recipe as it can’t properly blend the ingredients).

2. Kale-Apple Collaboration

Time = 3 minutes
Quantity = 12 ounces


Tart Apple - 2 (cut into 8 pieces each)
Kale - 5 Leaves


It doesn’t get simpler than this. First juice the apple pieces and then juice the kale leaves so that the oxygen gets the least time to spoil the kale’s nutrients. Drink immediately. Of course, this is best for the summer season when you don’t find orange and carrot to accompany the kale.
The tart apple brings to you a unique taste way different from that of the conventional apple juice.
(DO NOT use a centrifugal juicer for this recipe as it can’t properly blend the ingredients).
