Juicing can be great to add a bit of extra fruit and veg into your daily diet. There is tons of healthy inspiration out there of things you can put in a juicer, so there is no shortage of recipe ideas! Last week, I read that Zen Sophie brought a juicer and shared her first Carrot, Orange and Ginger Juice recipe. Today, I am going to share with you my own creation – apple, carrot, cucumber, spinach & butternut squash juice!
It really is all that simple. You chop up your fruits and veggies and put them into your juicer. And for a first attempt, it actually tasted pretty good too. This juice is packed full of goodness, and has countless health benefits too.
This blend gives an energizing health kick, and it crammed full of vitamins and minerals. Just check out what one glass can give you:
- vitamin K (bone health)
- vitamin C (skin & brain health)
- vitamin A (eye health)
- vitamin B6 (liver detox)
- vitamin B2 (energy production)
- manganese (blood sugar control)
- folate (cell production & nervous system)
- magnesium (energy production)
- iron (oxygen transport)
- fibre (supports healthy digestion)
- zinc (immune function & skin health)
Wow, that is a bit of a health kick huh? Why not give juicing a go yourself, whether you are looking to increase your energy, improve your skin, give yourself a bit of a detox, drop a few extra pounds, or just to generally feel healthier. There is a juice recipe out there for you!
