Juicing is an exciting way to include more fruit and vegetables in your daily diet and can take you a long way towards achieving your goal of 5 a day.
However, it can sometimes be difficult to think of juicing recipes that are beneficial for your health and which also taste good. Some fruits and vegetables naturally work well together, but others produce a flavor which is less than appealing. While it may be tempting to only juice fruits, this will cause the calories and sugar to mount up, so focusing on using more green vegetables is the best idea. It can be challenging to think of ways to include leafy vegetables in your juices, so here are some of the best green juicing recipes out there so you can get started with your new healthier lifestyle.
Adding green juice into your diet is a breeze with the Green Goddess juice. Celery and cucumber are both full of water and this makes them perfect for juicing, while the green apple contributes a fruity, sweet flavor to make the juice more palatable for juicing beginners. Super hydrating and refreshing, this juice is ideal on warm days.
3 celery stalks
1/2 a large cucumber, quartered
1 green apple, cut into 8 pieces
1 pear, cut into 8 pieces
Juice the ingredients together then drink straight away or allow to chill in the fridge for an hour before enjoying.
The Tropi-Kale juice allows you to obtain a wide range of nutrients thanks to the leafy dark greens that it contains. However, despite its healthy content, this juice tastes really tropical! While this recipe doesn’t work too well in a centrifugal juicer, it is ideal for masticating models.
1/4 fresh pineapple with the core and skin removed, cut into 1 inch strips
1 peeled ripe banana
4 kale leaves
Juice the kale and the pineapple then switch to a coarse strainer and juice your banana. Consume straight away or chill and drink within an hour.
