Our 5 Juicers in 5 Days Giveaway sponsored by HealthyJuicer.com is in full swing, so I felt it was only appropriate to share a new juice recipe this week! (This Contest Ended June 28, 2013)
Hallie Jordan Jacobs won our first juicer yesterday, but we still have FOUR more to give away, so click the link above and enter to win!
This juice contains celery which is great for weight loss! Celery is reported to be a negative calorie food, which means it takes the body more calories to digest it than the food itself contains.*
The pears in this juice give it a nice sweetness, while also providing more than your daily supply of fiber! One pear has 6 grams of fiber, this juice contains 6 pears, i.e. 36 grams of fiber from the pears alone! The suggested daily requirement of fiber is 25 to 30 grams.
Obviously I don’t even have to get you started on kale! We all know that kale is the superfood sweeping the nation packing tons of Vitamins A, C and K with health benefits ranging from reducing the chances of developing cancer to bone health as well as aiding in blood clotting.
The mint in this juice gives it great flavor while also helping to soothe stomach issues, clear your skin and eliminate your body of toxins.
What are you waiting for? It’s time to get healthy juicing!
- 6 pears (sliced and de-seeded)
- 2 stalks celery
- 3 cups kale
- 2 tbsp fresh mint
Juice all of the ingredients together.
Chill and serve.
This green detox juice is perfect for detoxing after a long weekend… such as Memorial Day… which just so happens to be this weekend!
After kicking back a few cold ones and some delicious BBQ, this juice will clear your skin and make you feel like a brand new person!
The kale and lemons give skin an amazing glow, while the ginger is perfect for helping with digestion and the apples, well as the old saying goes, an apple a day keeps the doctor away 😉
- 6 apples (fuji or granny smith work best)
- 1 bunch kale (app. 2 cups chopped)
- 1 lemon
- 1 tsp size knob of ginger
Begin by slicing the apples. If you have one of these handy-dandy apple corer-slicers, then this step is super easy!
Next, begin by juicing half of the apples, followed by the kale and ginger, then the rest of the apples, followed by the lemon.
Make sure to use a crisp apple, if the apple is too soft it will come out more like applesauce. In this recipe mine were on the verge of too soft. I’ve found that my favorite apples to use in this recipe are green granny smiths.
Have a great weekend and happy juicing 🙂 Don’t forget to check out our Healthy Celery Pear Juice, Vitamin Boost Juice and Antioxidant Immunity Juice for even more healthy and delicious juice recipes!
