My Green Juice Recipe!

Hi everyone! Hope you've all had a great week! I just uploaded a new video showing you exactly how I've been making my green juice recently, and the quantities of each ingredient - which is not super important really, just as long as you're getting in the veggies, but a lot of you have asked me to include this part as well :) If you've been following my channel / blog these last few years, it's no surprise that I LOVE to juice, especially greens - they are just so good for your skin, hair and overall health! It is a little extra work to prepare it, but I see it as an investment.

Over the years I've gone on and off juicing and I notice when I do it regularly my skin looks so good. I am very prone to breakouts, but incorporating green juices is like the best acne treatment ever - plus it's totally natural and also makes your skin GLOW! I hope you guys enjoy this video and maybe find it helpful! XOXO





GREEN JUICE RECIPE:
(Amounts do not have to be exact of course :) Tailor to your preference / what you’ve got!) 

1 bunch of celery
3 apples
1 cucumber
2 lemons 
Piece of ginger 
Bunch of kale / spinach / parsley… 


BENEFITS: 

Celery
- Contains anti-cancer phytonutrients (acetylenics, phonolic acids, coumarins) 
- Aids in digestion (naturally gets things moving)
- The minerals and essential oils in celery juice have a calming effect on the nervous system
- Helps stabilize blood sugar levels (prevents cravings, mood swings...)
- Highly detoxifying 

Apple
- Gives a nice sweetness to the juice
- Rich in vit A, B and C
- Contains many antioxidants 
- High flavanoid content (anti-cancer)

Cucumber
- High water content 
- Rich in vit A, C, K, silica and chlorophyll 
- Great source of calcium and copper
- Promotes healthy skin, nails and hair due to high content of magnesium, potassium, silicon

Lemon 
- Works in the body by drawing out toxins
- Highly alkaline, helping to regulate body's natural pH level 
- Contains many antioxidants 
- Rich in vit C
- Has an energizing and uplifting effect on the body 

Ginger 
- Helps to even skin tone and clear dark spots
- Improves absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients in the body
- Promotes tranquility if feeling nauseous or have an upset stomach 
- Contains chromium, magnesium and zinc which can help to improve blood flow, as well as help prevent chills, fever, and excessive sweat

Spinach / Kale
- High in carotenes, amino acids, iron, iodine, potassium and magnesium, Vitamins A, C, K, E and B complex
- Contains anti-inflammatory & anti-cancer agents
- It is alkaline, thus helps regulate your body's natural pH level 
- High in protein (you get the same amount of protein from a bunch of spinach as you would obtain from a morsel of meat)
- Helps in the creation of red blood cells



RECOMMENDED JUICERS



My top two recommendations for juicers are the Breville Juice Fountain Plus (around $150) and the Tribest Slowstar Juicer (around $380). 

They both work really well, however if you're on a budget I would go for the Breville as it's more affordable - but still works great. The Slowstar is a vertical "slow" juicer and works by a squeezing method as opposed to the traditional spinning method. This allows for more juice per fruit/vegetable and allows more of the nutrients to be preserved during extraction. The Slowstar is also a 2 in 1, and comes with a mincing attachment to make nut butters and sorbets. You could also make nut milk with this machine!

I talk more about these juicers in detail in my previous Green Juice video, which you can watch hereAre you into juicing? If so what do you like to juice? Let me know below in the comments! XOXO

  1. I think this juice recipe is my all time favourite!!! I had it for 2 weeks straight and I was literally glowing :) How would you suggest incorporating into your daily routine as I use to have it first thing in the day but then I'm hungry an hour later?
