We all have our favourite tipple, our elixir of life that keeps us going and pushes us farther. In this challenge I'm simply asking you to tell us what you drink and why.
Celebrate Juice Challenge rules
- Tell us what you drink
- Why you drink it
- Ideally to enhance performance in sport..."I drink Buckfast cos it get's me smashed quicker" isn't what I'm looking for
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“I just bought a giant bag of carrots, and have been drinking 32 oz of carrot, apple, cucumber juice in the mornings. With the first sip, I feel an instant ZING!!! ”

Iain M Love juice.
Just recently bought a juicer. Have had juice umpteen times since.
My favourite is Apple carrot ginger & kiwi.
Jayney G Green juice two days now. Cucumber and celery. Fantastically cleansing. Eyes look brighter and skin clearer already.
Rick P encouraged this.
Kirsten M Favourite is a home made of smoothie made up of:
1 tall glass orange juice
1 large handful of blueberries
6 large strawberries
1 squeezed lime
1 handful of fresh raspberries
All into the blender and enjoy!
Philippa S During a workout I tend to drink water. If I'm flagging a bit and needing a bit of a boost my drink of choice would be a home made banana smoothie - The one I would generally make uses my cupboard/fridge staples: Banana, weetabix and milk - and I occasionally add a bit of variety with natural yoghurt, apple or honey... Basically breakfast in a glass :-P
Ron W Today I'm completing a 30 day juice fast. While I experimented quite a bit (many losers!) my two main stays were RED and GREEN.
1-2 inches of ginger
1-2 inches of ginger
1 bunch Kale or spinach or whatever greeny you want.
Each makes about a half gallon, the green makes a bit more than the red. Actual amounts vary per size of fruit/veg's involved.
I found that RED was really good for breakfast and as a post work out recovery drink. Green was good for lunch/dinner or anytime through out the day.
Melanie H I juice as many green veggies as I can...it's amazing how much veg you can eat if you juice (otherwise you'd need to be grazing all day!) Adding fennel really takes the 'green' taste away or a lovely granny smith apple!
Brandon G I drink a fruit smoothie every morning on my way to work. It includes mango, strawberry, blueberry, carrot, acai berry, and banana - with flax, honey, and matcha thrown in for good measure. It's good stuff - but don't knock the Buckie, it may be evil, but it's made by monks, so it can't be THAT evil!
Kathy M encouraged this.
Abigail H Got a juicer about three weeks ago and have been experimenting with all sorts of combinations but my favourite is anything that includes beetroot - I love the taste anyway but I been reading lately is supposedly being hailed as a superfood.
Paul C encouraged this.
Cory M Pre-run: in a blender -- chia seeds, water, greens powder and a touch of unflavored pea/hemp/brownrice protein. Why? Massive fuel to keep you going during or long workout.
Post run: in a blender -- low sugar yogurt (sometimes), water, pea/hemp/brownrice protein, L-glutamine, flax seeds, fresh fruit or avocado.
Veggie boost: in a blender -- water, carrots, cucumber, radishes or any other sort of watery veggie I got lying around. It is not great tasting but you feel fantastic. Use a blender to keep the fiber (as opposed to a juicer which discards it).
Loads of water.
None are fantastic tasting, I have to admit but a couple of these a day keep me going through long runs with ease.
Jesse N Alkaline water and tea(no sugar) to hydrate, a protein smoothie for fuel and repair and to get my fruit and veggies in, and a creatine drink for recovery and repair
Louise F decaf coffee and decaf tea (to ensure I don't dehydrate) and water (to keep me hydrated) - and when I'm being naughty, then red wine!
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
