We have been making fresh juices lately and they have been so yummy!!
I love that my kids get excited to make juice!
I also love that they like to drink it!!!
This juice had kale, celery, beets, cucumbers, apples, garlic, ginger, and lemon! I add in some stevia and ice and it is super delicious!!
Don’t mind the face painting-we had spent the day at the zoo!!!
I love the color that beets add to a juice! Did you know that consuming raw beets is cleansing to the blood?? If you research the health benefits of beets you will be amazed at how good they are for our bodies!!
After drinking this juice my husband and I decided that we would do a 1 day juice/smoothie feast the following day. I did not have time to do any shopping so we decided to use what we had on hand.
We began our day with fresh homemade vanilla almond milk!
Next, we had fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and then some ginger tea!
For lunch we had a chocolate banana milkshake which is just bananas, leftover almond milk from breakfast, ice, and cacao powder with some stevia.
In the afternoon I made some green juice which consisted of:
kale, celery, limes, cucumbers, and apples….I placed everything in my VitaMix and blended it up like a smoothie! Then I poured the mixture into a fine strainer bag and squeezed out all the juice!!
Next, we drank fresh squeezed orange juice blended with mangos!
For dinner we had tomato, garlic, green pepper, onion, basil, hemp oil, and cayenne blended together and warmed. We ate this like a soup!
Lastly, we had beet, lemon, pineapple, and kiwi juice!
Squeezing beet juice through the strainer did a number on my hands though…I had red hands for a day!!!
We finished our night with some more ginger tea!! It was a delicious and amazing day!!
What is your favorite juice??
