Summertime Juice

A refreshing and cooling juice to support your wellbeing.

Ingredients:

Carrots

Celery

Whole lemon or lime

Fresh ginger

Fresh mint

I like to have quite a few carrots in the drink as a base. I use about 5 large ones and several stalks of celery. One whole piece of citrus such as a lemon, a small sliver of ginger to taste and a generous handful of mint. Each person will like these flavours differently so it may take some adjusting to suit you.

Wash all ingredients well. I do not peel the carrots of lemon. Place in the juicer and then mix slightly when juiced. It can be cooled and then enjoyed. Often l will also add bok choy for a variety in the flavour but of course you can add any other vegetable that you enjoy.

Refreshing green juice

A cold pressed juicer is wonderful for making green juices!

This is a wonderful juice to drink on a really hot day. I like to vary the greens in my juices and when l can purchase or grow good quality bok choy it is wonderful to juice. This recipe uses a cold pressed juicer which helps to retain the nutrients in the delicate greens. When l was recovering from chronic illness several years ago green juices were an important part of my day and now they are just a delight to drink. This juice is a really stunning colour which makes it very inviting to drink and a green juice can be a wonderful re-energiser when you are feeling a bit worn out from the day. An afternoon pick me up is how l like to think about it and the nutrients are readily available so you start to feel better in a very short time. On a hot day if l am slightly dehydrated l sip this drink slowly and it is an excellent energy booster.

A beautiful colour

This juice is a really stunning colour which makes it very inviting to drink. A green juice can be a wonderful re-energiser when you are feeling a bit worn out from the day. An afternoon pick me up is how l like to think about it and the nutrients are readily available so you start to feel better in a very short time. If it is a hot day and l haven’t had enough to drink sometimes l need more than just water and sipping this slowly is a great energy booster.

Ingredients:

1 green apples with the skin on (well washed)

2 sticks of celery with the leafy ends included

1 lebanese cucumber-well washed

1 bunch of bok choy or a similar green

1/2 a lemon with the skin on

A 2 cm piece of fresh ginger

A small handful of mint.

Process this in the cold press juicer and drink it straight away. Some added ice will give it a nice chill.
