How to Make Radish Juice

By Nick Marshall

Most often used as a salad vegetable, the fiery radish might not jump out as an ideal candidate for juicing, but it produces a bracing, sinus-clearing tonic to kick-start the day. For a sweeter, more palatable alternative, combine with other root vegetables such as carrot and beets, or autumn fruit such as apple.

Radishes make a surprisingly refreshing juice.

Fiery Juice

Step 1

Wash the radishes thoroughly under cold running water to remove any dirt or pesticide residue.

Step 2

Place the radishes on a chopping board and cut into halves or quarters depending on the size of the juicer aperture.

Step 3

Pass the radishes 1 by 1 through the juicer. Approximately 10 radishes will be sufficient to yield enough liquid for a single serving.

Step 4

Pour the collected juice into a glass through a strainer to remove any pulp and serve.
