As part of my eat clean month I’m juicing fruit from the garden. And there is plenty! You’ve got to love picking fruit from the tree and juicing it. But even if you can’t pick your own, a few choice fruits mixed with vegetables and you’re getting a good start on your 5 a day. I’ve also found that juicing encourages me to eat well all day. Each recipe serves 1.
Apple, carrot and ginger
Juice 2 medium carrots, 1 medium apple, 1″ peeled fresh ginger.
Pear, spinach and ginger
Juice 2 pears, 40g spinach and 1″ piece of peeled ginger for a really delicious green juice. My favourite – I think!
Kale, green apple and celery
Juice 30g kale, 1 green apple, 1 stalk of celery, 1 sprig of mint.
Beetroot, apple, cucumber
Juice half a cucumber, 2 beetroot, 2 apples.
Cucumber, mint, pear, spinach and lime
Half a cucumber, 1 pear, 25 g spinach, a sprig of mint.
Raspberry, melon, basil and lime
Juice 75g raspberries, 300g melon, 1 sprig (approx 5g) fresh basil, a squeeze of lime juice.
Kale, apple and carrot
Juice 20g kale, 2 small apples, 1 large carrot, I sprig of mint (I find mint helps the flavour where kale is involved!)
