3 Juice Recipes w/ Love


GREENS 15

Triple leafy greens plus triple fruit equals triple threat. Here we add fennel, celery, and cucumber for a super hydrating juice that is not overly sweet.

MAKES 1 TO 2 (8-OUNCE) SERVINGS

3 celery stalks
1 cucumber, peeled
2 kale leaves
2 Swiss chard leaves
1⁄2 small fennel bulb
1 Fuji apple
1 pear
1 lemon, peeled
1 bunch fresh parsley

PINEAPPLE, BEET, PEAR, GINGER

Along with being a tasty addition to our green juices, pear is one of our favorite fruits for its flavonoid content, which has a lot of promise for improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing diabetes risk and weight gain. 

An unusual component of pears is cinnamic acid. Cinnamic acid has shown promise in studies to reduce the risk of esophageal, gastric, and colorectal cancer. This juice is extra sweet, so we add ginger for a dose of spice and to balance things out.

MAKES 1 TO 2 (16-OUNCE) SERVINGS

1⁄2 pineapple, skin removed
1 beet 
2 pears
1⁄2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled

HOW TO PREP AND USE BEETS IN JUICE 
Scrub your beets well (you don’t have to peel them), then cut off their tops (the leafy beet greens make an amazing side dish or an addition to your juice). Because beets do have a good amount of sugar and they are naturally very sweet, a little goes a long way in juice. When you’re creating your own juice recipes, start with a small amount of beet and then add more to taste.

SPICY TOMATO, GREENS, FENNEL

This tomato-based juice might sound a little bit like a V8, but we guarantee that this one is better for you, better tasting, and more natural. While we don’t recommend that you eat tomatoes if you’re doing a cleanse, tomatoes do have a lot of health benefits. Rich in lycopene, a carotenoid pigment, tomatoes are also an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese. 

And in terms of phytonutrients, you can’t do much better than tomatoes. They are incredibly antioxidant rich, which protects the cardiovascular system; they’ve been shown to regulate fat in the blood; and they are known for reducing the risk of heart disease. These are all great qualities for keeping your heart in tip-top shape.

MAKES 1 TO 2 (16-OUNCE) SERVINGS

2 large tomatoes
Handful of spinach
2 or 3 celery stalks, to taste
1⁄2 small fennel bulb, plus a few of the fronds
2 cloves garlic
1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
