Do you ever have those mornings when coffee is just not enough? No matter how many cups you drink, you feel as if you are lacking in energy and need a quick re-boot to the system. This is the time to turn to green juices, as they are pure aroma theraphy for the morning. These green juices are on the top of my list that I blend on a regular basis to give my metabolism a boost and nourish my body with vitamins and antioxidants that remove toxins and heal the skin. The detox juice is delicious in flavour, a little sweet and fulfilling in texture while the latter is refreshing and extremely hydrating. Both juices are great to implement into your weekly routines to feed your body with all the green goodness! To make the juices, all you need to do is blend the ingredients and drink immediately or they last up to a day in the refrigerator. Green juices aim for optimal health as all the nutrients absorb into the body immediately when raw and in liquid form!

Detox Green Juice

  • 1 cup parsley
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves
  • large chunk ginger (about 4cm x 3cm)
  • 3 small celery stalks
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup oat milk
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 mandarin

This detox juice has a great texture from the flax seeds with a bit of sweetness from the mandarin and a good kick from the ginger. I love to use a lot of ginger so, you can add less if you think this is too strong. The anti inflammatory ingredients above give your metabolism and immune system a real boost and cleanses the body from toxins. Incredibly alkalizing, this juice is packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for a healthy body.

Glowing Skin Green juice

  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 cup mint leaves
  • large chunk ginger (about 4cm x 3cm)
  • 1 apple ( or 1 cup pineapple)
  • 1 large celery stalk
  • 1 cup chopped kale leaves (or spinach+kale combination)
  • 1 juice of lemon/lime

This juice helps prevent cell damage and allows your skin to stay healthy, hydrated and give you that glow you are after! Vitamin C and A keeps your skin firm allowing it to radiant from within. Vitamin K lowers stress and naturally water keeps the skin from dryness which causes less wrinkles and flaking. Leafy greens are high in antioxidants and phytochemicals that help prevent inflammation that can cause skin issues. The soothing mint leaves not only give a refreshing flavour but also the salicylic acid in it helps keep the skin more clear. This juice is also great for digestion giving a boost to the immune system.
