3 spring juice recipes from The Squeeze truck


The Squeeze's Karliin Brooks shares splashy, seasonal recipes that are ripe for juicing at home.

The SqueezeWhen Karliin Brooks founded The Squeeze, an organic juice and raw food truck in Manhattan, nine months ago, it was with the idea of making a documentary of a traveling juice truck that cures people’s illness and ailments through intensive juicing.

While the documentary hasn’t become a reality (yet), The Squeeze is gaining fans citywide, particularly for its cleverly named juices, like “The Jeans I Wore in High School” and “My Plastic Surgeon Got Laid Off…By Me” (it’s packed with cucumbers for great skin).

And the arrival of warmer weather is sure to supercharge New Yorkers’ cravings for cold-pressed, curbside-served juices. “The Squeeze fully exploits the bounty of spring and summer with seasonal juices, like watermelon-mint and musk melon-ginger,” Brooks says.
