Set the Juice Loose

Share

Eagle-eyed readers will know we love a juice recipe at this mag, and these two come courtesy of the Simply Healing Retreat. They’re designed to help you boost your energy levels and replenish nutrients in the heat.

ENERGY-BOOSTING MORNING GREEN JUICE
To make, simply juice:
2 green apples
1 handful of spinach
1 inch of turmeric root
1 inch of ginger
3 celery stalks
4 kale leaves
1/2 a lemon

This morning juice is full of flavour, antioxidants and health – and will keep you going much longer than a coffee! It’s rich in manganese, which will help reduce insulin resistance and therefore balance your blood sugar levels and reduce cravings. It’s also rich in fibre, vitamin C, potassium and vitamin K, thanks to the celery, kale, lemon and apples. Ginger is also a natural antihistamine, making it great for those suffering with hay fever and a stuffy nose.

SUMMER FRUIT PUNCH
To make, simply juice:
2 ripe peaches
2 nectarines
1 punnet strawberries
1 large lime

Pour into a long glass over ice cubes and sip in the sunshine. The strawberries are packed with vitamin C and antioxidants that will help protect your skin from sun damage whilst the lime is a great detoxifier and metabolism-booster. It adds a burst of freshness too – making it the perfect thirst-quencher! Peaches are also a good source of potassium, which not only help with healthy blood pressure but will act as an electrolyte to help regulate hydration – perfect for when it’s super hot outside and you need to replenish some of the nutrients lost through sweat.

The Simply Healing Centre is a retreat specialising in serious detoxes targeting the body from the inside out, from juice cleansing and colonic hydrotherapy, to meditation and shamanic healing.
