Healthy Juice Recipes

Healthy juices can be an acquired taste by which I mean that some can be downright disgusting!

Here are a couple of my favourite juice recipes, all of which I have naturally stolen from my wife!

We use organic fruit & vegetables in our juices. I personally think that if you’re going to go to the trouble of juicing for a health benefit you probably don’t want to juice something that has been sprayed with pesticides or weedkillers…

To Prepare – wash all fruit and veg thoroughly and chop into pieces that will suit your juicer and peel any citrus fruits you are using.

Drink the juice as soon after juicing as is feasible, immediately if possible.

A small handful of parsley

My juicer separates the fibres and spits it out into a second container – this is a magic concoction for composting. I’ll have to find use for all this organic compost one of these days….
