Brussels sprouts are sometimes portrayed as one of those foods parents have to force their children to eat. From a health perspective, at least, eating them or consuming their juice is well worth it. Brussels sprouts are a part of the cruciferous family, which includes broccoli and cabbage. These vegetables are known for their anti-cancerous and immunity-enhancing properties, according to JuicingBook.com. Brussels sprouts are a good source of calcium, sulfur, potassium and vitamins A and B-1. However, they contain less calcium and vitamin A than broccoli.

Step 1

Choose Brussels sprouts with dull-green-colored leaves that show no wilting. Remove the outer layer of the Brussels sprouts if yellow or wilted.

Step 2

Wash the Brussels sprouts thoroughly. Cut them up so they will fit into a twin-gear-type juicer. These juicers usually have a smaller opening than a centrifuge juicer, but are better equipped for juicing greens and grasses.

Put the Brussels sprout pieces into the juicer and push them through slowly. Make only about 1/4 cup of Brussels sprout juice at a time. Add carrot or another juice that has a more palatable taste to make the Brussels sprout juice easier to drink.

Drink the juice immediately. Sitting in the open air can cause juice to lose healthful properties.
