A matter of (commonly held) opinion
When it comes to taste, our tongues don't lie...to us at least. The general consensus would say corn corn corn and asparagus. There are a lot of lists and opinions about taste and you have your own, maybe you'll find a few new ones or reconsider some old ones after reading some of these lists.
I want to start by saying that just because a vegetable tastes good doesn't mean you are going to want to drink it. Few people would enjoy a garlic eggplant turnip smoothie. When it comes to the best tasting vegetables for juicing, the juice typically should be refreshing and have sweet/ sour rather than meaty or fatty taste.
According to juicers, these are the best tasting vegetables for juicing.
In order of taste (more or less):
1 Tomatoes (a fruit, though some still consider them one of the best tasting vegetables for juicing)
5 Turnip Greens
7 Collard Greens
3/4 lbs carrots (washed and peeled)
1/2 lemon (peeled)
a few large leaves of greens (kale, spinach, collards)
an apple (any variety - optional)
Put everything in the juicer and mix. Don't let it sit out for too long as it will spoil
You don't have to peel the carrots. I prefer not to. (some say it tastes better if you do)
Carrot juice has lots of vitamins A, B, E and calcium. These vitamins benefit the eyes, bones, teeth, liver and nails, skin and hair as well as being useful in enlisting the help of rabbits.
Mixed Vegetable Juice
Juice the tomatoes in a blender for a more chunky, textured juice. Otherwise use a high speed juicer (or any juicer on the high setting.)
Homemade vegetable juice, never buy over priced over salted juices at the grocery again!
3 medium tomatoes (cut into pieces)
a handful of spinach (use mustard greens for an interestingly spicy flavor!)
1 medium/large stalk of celery
2 medium/large carrots (unpeeled makes the juice "earthier")
1-2 teaspoons salt (to taste)
2 pinches of black pepper
a pinch of chile powder if youd like
Juice the tomatoes, celery, cucumber and additional ingredients in your juicer.
Add sweetener if you like when no one's looking, Or for some extra flavor add salt, pepper and/or cayenne pepper (which goes well with a little onion (1/4 small/medium onion)
Fresh oregano and basil and red bell pepper are also tasty additions!
Spinach juice makes a great base, but it is good as a juice as well. This juice recipe is great for anyone just getting into juicing as the taste is not as overpowering as many other vegetables.
Spinach is neither bitter or strong tasting, so drink up!
1 large bunch of spinach
1 large red apple if you'd like to add some fruit
1/2 lemon (or lime!) peeled (optional)
Put all ingredients in your juicer and juice em up!
Cabbage juice can be a little intimidating at first, it is suggested you blend a little carrot into it (as this recipe outlines,) though it is
Very tasty. Not bitter or strong at all.
1/3 medium cabbage (or the equivalent in outer leaves)
1 bunch spinach
1 large red apple if you'd like to add some fruit
1/2 lemon, peeled (optional)
Put all ingredients in your juicer. A twin gear juicer such as the Green Star Juicer is ideal for greens.
Mix well and enjoy.
You don't have to add the lemon, it's good enough without it. But I just love lemon, so I always add a little.
Try other members of the cabbage family such as kale, broccoli, and collards.

Cucumber, Apple and Ginger
Cucumber is a diuretic. Apples have a lot of pectin, which forms a gel-like material that aids in removing built-up waste that may have accumulated in yer loins. A one-inch piece of ginger mixed with cucumber and apple juice will help lower bad cholesterol, and have a thermogenic effect on the body, helping it to burn calories faster.
Watermelon and Spinach
Watermelons are full of water, and a natural diuretic. They also contain a nutritious helping of vitamins A and C, and lots of potassium. Potassium helps regulate your blood pressure and is necessary for waste elimination. Spinach is one of the few veggies with a significant amount of protein in it. When it comes to juicing, protein can be heard to come by..unless you juice a sirloin. I have, it's not good.
Aside from being protein packed it has vitamin C and calcium. Spinach is also considered a "dark green leafy vegetable" which means it's got iron, a mineral that carries oxygen to body cells. Juicing the rind of the watermelon is completely optional, but do it anyway.
Carrots, Oranges and Kale
This is one of the healthiest recipes on here.
Carrot juice is rich in vitamins B, C, D, E and K and folic acid. Folic acid is a B vitamin and is essential for many metabolic processes. Oranges are a powerhouse of vitamin C and we all know how beneficial that can be. Also, adding a little orange to carrot juice makes it absolutely amazing. If anyone remembers V-8 splash when it was 100% juice, this was one of their flavors, more or less and we at liquid-dietweightloss.com will never understand why they crapped it up, I guess V-8 fusion is the new "splash" it's pretty good.
Kale adds a unique taste to the concocction as well as a host of nutrients. For more information on kale's amazing amazingness click here buddy.
Broccoli, Pear and Plum
Broccoli has a lot of A, C, K and folic acid, not to mention calcium. Increasing your calcium intake can help you lose weight according to the British Journal of Nutrition, only if you are not getting enough though.
Bones are good too according to a new study and calcium = bones.
Pairs contain copper, which aids in preventing free radical damage.
Plums round out this juice with a tangy quality. They also are healthy in that they are LOADED with anti-oxidants and have a good deal of fiber in them.
Grapefruit and Cantaloupe
Grapefruit has been shown to lower insulin levels. Unbeknownst to many, insulin plays a huge role in regulating fat...infact it is pretty much the boss. Cantaloupe is extremely high in vitamins C and A as well as potassium.
Seriously though, lowering insulin is the new black...click here to learn about the role of insulin in the diet!
Ginger, Melon and Carrot
Aside from adding a unique and piquant flavor, ginger provides a whole host of health benefits. Gingerols are natural phytonutrients exclusive to ginger which have painkilling properties which are particularly effective with arthritis. The root also has been shown to lower cholesterol, and prevent the oxidation of LDL cholesterol (lowers "bad cholesterol")
Adding carrot and melon juice rounds off the equation nicely as they too are packed with flavor and beneficial nutrients. Juice 5-6 medium carrots, the inside flesh of one cored medium round melon (crane, galia, persion, etc...) and ginger to taste (try about an inch of the fresh root if you're not sure) When juicing the ginger, feed it in slowly as it can be a bit tough. Also, i prefer not to peel the ginger or the carrots as it gives the juice a heartier taste and so much of the healthiness is believed to be in the peels.
