Low carb juice home made recipes with juicer.

Unfortunately, you're probably not going to find many answers to this simply because basically all juice is *is* sugar - of course, any home-made juice is going to be slightly better than something sweetened with HFCS, but it's still all just sugar. It's much better to just eat the fruit - that way at least there's some fiber!

Whoops sorry you are correct but I forgot that I was thinking vegetable juice.

Even if you juice a relatively low-carb vegetable like broccoli you are removing much of the fibre and effectively concentrating the portion that is richer in carbohydrates/sugars... plus making them easier/faster to digest

Correction: before I get jumped on for being imprecise in my above post, I should point out that fibre (cellulose) is also a carbohydrate... just not one that humans can digest. More correctly I would suggest that juicing will effectively concentrate the digestible carbohydrates, while making them more available for faster digestion... likely resulting in an higher and faster BG spike.

If you're still keen on juices, there isn't really a lot you can do to reduce the carb count since it's an integral part of the juice.

 

What you could do though is buy regular juice and then dilute it with water, and add sweetener to taste.

 

Make sure the juice you buy is an unsweetened one in the first place as well. It came as a huge surprise to me when I moved to the UAE to find that a lot of juices are sweetened. In the UK, sweetened juice is pretty much unheard of.

Yes, juice from the fruit is so delicious and in line with this I have found a new brand for home juicer... Breville BJE510XL is such a wonderful juicer in the world.. I hope all of you can experience also like what I've experienced.
