Store bought juices and smoothies all have preservatives as well as added sugar, therefore like many people I’ve started to make fresh fruit juices and smoothies at home on a weekly basis. Literally takes 10mins and tastes sooo good! It’s also a great way to get lots of your essential nutrients, especially if you aren’t a fan of eating actual fruits or vegetables.
This post will share with you a few of my favourite, quick recipes!
For all the recipes below, simply put the ingredients into a juicer one by one. No particular order is necessary.
Current Favourite Juicing Recipes:
1. The Detox Juice 2 Green Apples, 2 Celery Sticks, Handful of Spinach/Kale, Ginger & Lime juice from half a Lime. Lemon works just as well. This is great for your immune system, weight loss and energy levels. Spinach/Kale is a great source of calcium, iron, copper, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and vitamins A and C. Kale is low calorie and yet incredibly dense with nutrients aiding weight loss. 2. The ABC Juice 1 Apple, 1 Beetroot & 2 Carrots! Beetroot helps greatly with digestion and regularity, whilst the carrots give you Vitamins B and K. The apple adds a nice sweetness the juice. 3. Morning Perfection 1 Apple, 1 Orange, 1 Carrot & Ginger (to your liking) This juice will lead to improved circulation, digestion and any nausea. The apple & orange make it energising and perfect for the morning.
Three Must Try Smoothie Recipes:
1. Tropical Smoothie 1 Banana, 1/2 Mango, 2 Watermelon Slices, A Handful of Raspberries to top, 1/4 Cup ofWater and some Ice Place a couple of banana and mango slices to the side with the raspberries. Put the rest of the chopped banana, mango, watermelon, water and ice into blender and blend until smooth. Pour into large glass and top with the banana, mango and raspberries you initially placed on the side.
2. Avo Smoothie 1 Avocado, 1/2 Cup of Almond Milk or Soya (unsweetened) Milk, 2 Teaspoons of Sugar (Optional - I personally liked it a lot more with the sugar, although obviously not as healthy) Place all the ingredients into the blender and blend. Pour into a small short glass and top with Moringa Powder (Also optional)
3. Berry Breakfast Smoothie 1 Banana, Handful of Berries, 1/2 cup of Milk, Pumpkin Seeds & Raspberries to top. Place everything into a blender, pour into glass and top with Pumpkin Seeds and Raspberries.
