Juice Shot Recipes: Sweet Revenge & Toxin Ninja

  • by Robin Frey

Small portions of nutrient dense juice, commonly referred to as detox shots, wellness shots, booster shots, or immunity shots are gaining popularity. Health-wise they pack a huge punch of vitamins and antioxidants in a small 2oz – 4oz shot. From a business standpoint, they make a great add-on product to any juice purchase, as they are small and relatively inexpensive compared to a bottle of juice. Usually sold for $3 – $7 depending on size and ingredients (conventional /organic), they can be kept near the register for easy grab-and-go, much like grocery stores do with candy and water.

These mini wellness concoctions typically consist of lemon and ginger, with or without a few added ingredients. Lemon and ginger are known for their high concentration of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. This powerhouse team assists in promoting numerous health benefits including:

  • Boosting the body’s immune system
  • Relief of symptoms from arthritis and other inflammatory illnesses
  • Balancing the body’s PH
  • Neutralizing free radicals that turn healthy cells into sick or cancerous cells
  • Support of digestive health, settles upset stomach
  • Detoxification, cleansing the liver and colon of built up waste and toxins
  • Regulating blood pressure
  • Clearing skin and reducing premature ageing
  • Improving eye care & brain function

If you want to increase your juice sales by adding shots to your menu, here are 2 recipes you will definitely want to try.

Sweet Revenge Wellness Shot Recipe

Sweet RevengeTake your body back!

  • 4 oz peeled lemons (about 2 small lemons)
  • 4 oz ginger (about 4” of ginger)
  • 4 oz organic strawberries (about 5 strawberries)

*Makes approx 8 oz., (4) 2 oz. shots. To make 1 gal, multiply ingredient weights by 16

Why we love this shot: The addition of strawberries softens the blow of the lemon & ginger and also provides an extra jab of Vitamin C and antioxidants. Did you know – (according to USDA and other sources) – ounce for ounce, strawberries are slightly higher in vitamin C and lower in calories than oranges!

Toxin Ninja Wellness Shot

Toxin NinjaFree radicals have no chance!

  • 4 oz peeled lemons (about 2 small lemons)
  • 4 oz ginger (about 4” ginger)
  • 3 oz apple (about ½ large apple)
  • ¼ tsp cayenne
  • 1 tbl maple syrup

*Makes approx 8 oz., (4) 2 oz. shots. To make 1 gal, multiply ingredient weights by 16

Why we love this shot: Cayenne not only gives this shot an extra kick (for those who love a challenge), it also supports weight loss and boosts metabolism. And…the maple syrup. Well let’s just say we don’t need a reason to love maple syrup.

  1. Love the shots! We call them bombs.

    We have a Ginger Bomb (ginger, lemon), Turmeric Bomb (ginger, lemon, turmeric, ACV), Omenga Bomb, (pineapple, Blue Majik, spirulina) and a Charcoal Bomb (purified water, lemon, ginger, agave, activated charcoal).

    1. Awesome, great name for them! All of your shots sound amazing.
      I was curious about the Blue Majik, so I looked it up…chemical free extract of raw, organic Arthrospira platensis (Spirulina), incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, nice!

  2. Hi Guys,
    Thanks for sharing this info. We are trying to provide nothing but shots with continuously varying ingredients, so new ideas are always more than welcome.
    Question though: do you both shred and press the strawberries with X1 like the other ingredients, or does it come out like a pulp? We never used strawberries before, that’s why …

    Thanks again,
    and warm greetings to all those juicers out there!

    1. Hi Jan,
      We like to grind the strawberries with the lemon and ginger (then press), this tends to give a better flavor than grinding alone or pressing without grinding. Good luck and keep up the good work spreading the juice!

  4. We’d like to add immunity shots to our menu – should we try using the X-1 or do you all have a juicer you can recommend for them?

    1. If the ingredients you’re using are ingredients that can be cold-pressed, then yes the X-1 or X-1 Mini will work fine.
