Whoever says they can’t get their kids to eat greens hasn’t tried this Fruit & Veggie Juice Recipe… It’s Delicious! And, it’s not just for kids. This recipe is packed full of Whole Fruits & Vegetables blended to perfection in the Vitamix.
Why the strange name? My boys have never had a Jamba Juice before, so we jokingly called this ‘JimBob’ Juice & it made us all laugh. The name stuck, and that’s what we’ve called it ever since… I know, we’re weird.
If you don’t already have a VitaMix, I strongly encourage you to check out what this machine is capable of!

“Slurp! Slurp! Mmmm… Mom more JimBob juice please.” ADORABLE!!! :) Can’t wait to try it – Thank you!
Thanks so much for the great ideas! We’ve been gradually “cleaning” up our diet when some recent health concerns with my twin were brought to our attention. Green smoothies have been a hit — but I hadn’t thought of adding the other veggies. I can’t wait to try it!!
Twins!? You must have your hands full! =)
Tasty food that’s healthy is the best way to convince even the pickiest eaters to make a change in their diets… but sometimes the color is what people are afraid of! At least they are willing to drink the green smoothies!
How much did you pay him to say “more jimbob juice please” ;-)
Seriously, tho I love the recipe. However, I think you’ll find that concentrated apple sauce and concentrated grape juice are processed products and almost as bad for you as refined sugar. Just sayin’.
Thanks for the comment! Yes, concentrated juices can be terrible for your blood sugar in great quantities. However, I only recommend using Organic Grape or Apple Juice Concentrates sparingly when you don’t have access to the fresh stuff.
I am brand new to the Vitamix and the idea of raw foods. I just love your site and all your “recipes”
The day before yesterday I tried the dirty juice for dinner and my husband and I loved it.
This morning I made JimBob juice and it is soo yumm!!
I really wante to try your 3GOP but need to get some grapefruit first!
Do the beets need to be cooked first?
I used apple juice instead of the water and concentrate, kiwi, orange, pinapple, pear, strawberries, green grapes, slice of lemon, 1/2 cucumber, handfull of spinach, slice of raw beet, slice of ginger. I ran out of room for the banana! LOL! Soo good and I love the red color!
Nothing was frozen, so I added almost a whole tray of ice. I had to pour some out first!
Thank you soo much – you make it easy and I’m not afraid to try new combos! When I follow recipes in the past like smoothies, the combos were always weird or I didnt have the key ingredient!
I love my vitamix too!
Thanks for your sweet comment! So excited about your new VitaMix! I’m glad you’re jumping in two feet first to start trying new recipes! I don’t cook any of my fruit before putting it into the blend… raw is best. Your version sounds delish!
Enjoy & God Bless!
HI there Erika,
This is great… I use a Nutri bullet.. saving for a Vitamix.
Do you buy the concentrate or do you make them?
I am trying to go sugar free
By the way, the lychee is not a lychee, it is a rambutan!
LOL! Thanks! Once I looked back at the video I realized my mistake. The inner fruits are so similar, but those Rambutan’s are hard to confuse with a Lychee – they’re like a hairy fruit from outer space! =)
I don’t usually make any of my own fruit juice concentrates – since I use them so infrequently. I really do prefer fresh fruit when it’s available. However, Cascadian Farms makes some wonderful all natural, no sugar added Apple & Grape juice concentrates that you can use when fresh fruit isn’t available.
