We’ve already covered the effects of juicing in our Miracle Juice Cleanse article, but there’s nothing to say that a juice or smoothie as part of your healthy diet won’t be beneficial. After all, they do contain vitamins and minerals that are better consumed in food than any supplement. If you’re stuck for ideas on how to make delicious, healthy juices then you’re in luck thanks to our fantastic juicing recipes below.
It can be difficult to get your recommended dose of leafy greens each day, so whizzing them into a juice is a quick and easy way to pack them in for a refreshing juice that’s a great morning pick me up or ideal for post workout.
(Apple + Cucumber + Celery) + (Spinach/Kale/Green Cabbage Leaves) + (Ginger Root and Parsley) = A green, tasty and zingy juice for a great energy boost.
(Spinach/Kale/Cabbage Leaves) + (Oranges + Parsley) + (Lemon/Lime) = A delicious immunity booster with a citrus taste and plenty of Vitamin C.
You may not have given much thought to vegetable juices before, but they offer plenty of tasty flavours to help you get your daily intake. Eat with a meal or have as a mid-morning snack to refresh your body.
(Tomato + Lemon/Lime) + (Parsley + Kale/Spinach/Green Cabbage Leaves) + (Celery + Cucumber) = A refreshing morning tonic to get your day off to a great start.
(Carrots + Celery + Cucumber) + (Ginger + Oranges) + (Tomato + Parsley) = A sweet vegetable juice ideal for those who dislike the celery taste.
Fruit juices are a firm favourite and offer some great flavours with different combinations. Adding some leafy greens and vegetables brings even more flavour as well as other nutrients which you may not get from fruit alone.
