Fresh Juice

Emily DaFoe

Is there anything better than fresh squeezed orange juice? We don’t think so. It’s a way to keep healthy, enjoy something a little sweet, and keeps the Vitamin C flowing.

This does require a juicer and I can’t advocate enough how important a juicer is for our family. I make fresh veggie juice every morning which helps with warding off sickness, a good way to get extra vitamins, and can help get the body moving if anyone is a little backed up. We also use the fresh juice to make popsicles which are a delicious treat.

RECIPE

  • Orange and Carrot - 3 or 4 large peeled oranges, 8 large carrots and one lemon to cut the sweetness

Here are some of our favorite juices.

  • Celery - straight up! Yes, it’s a trend but it’s refreshing and has a ton of health benefits.

  • Celery with lemon and cucumber. - one stalk of celery, 1 peeled lemon, 1 cucumber

  • Green is Good - kale, spinach, cucumber, celery, ginger and lemon. Just add as much as you want because it’s all good!

  • Tomato with lemon, cucumber and celery - It’s like a salad in a bowl.

  • Pineapple and carrot. This feels like the tropics. Add a little orange juice if you would like.
