I really missed it, and now I am back at home I’m happy to be reunited with my juicer! I thought I would share my five favourite juices with you.
Just so you know, I have a candida imbalance so I try to avoid making my juices too loaded with fruit. You can adjust yours to taste.
I also add loads of lemon and ginger to all my juices, I enjoy the kick. I’ll leave you to add what works for you.
1. Oldie but goldie
This was my first ever juice recipe. I remember thinking how weird it was to be drinking my vegetables!
Juice 2 or 3 carrots with a couple of sticks of celery and an apple. Add some ginger and a squeeze of lemon.
2. Red devil
Sharon Agates at Agape Cottage introduced me to this combo. It’s one of the few juices I don’t add any ginger as the chilli gives a nice warmth. Watch out for pink pee!
Juice 2 or 3 raw beets with an orange (I like to peel mine) and a scotch bonnet chilli. It’s best to remove the seeds and add a small amount of chilli at a time to taste. I like to add lemon (of course) to give it some zing.
3. Almond and kale smoothie
This is a smoothie rather than a juice. It sounds a bit weird but it’s from GOOP and it works!
Add one handful of kale, 240ml almond milk, 1 tbsp almond butter, 1 tbsp almonds, 1 pitted date and 1 tbsp coconut oil to a powerful blender, and whizz until completely smooth. Breakfast in a glass!
4. Summer special
Another one from GOOP, this time a simple, light summery juice.
Juice a handful of fresh basil (you could also use mint instead) with one cucumber, half a peeled lime and an apple.
5. Green goodness in a glass
This is the one where all the veg in my fridge goes!
I grab whatever we have, usually plenty of dark green leafy’s, some celery, cucumber, romaine or iceberg lettuce and broccoli. I juice it with an apple, peeled lemon and plenty of ginger. You can add mint, parsley, basil or lime – whatever flavours you enjoy.
If I’m having it as a meal, I whizz it in the blender with a handful of spinach and half an avocado. I often add a scoop of greens powder for an extra boost. Green goodness in a glass!
