Juicing is all the rage for dieters, and for good reason. Fruit and vegetable juices are a great way to get a lot of nutrition and fill yourself up without many calories. While there is nothing wrong with drinking simple juices made of one fruit, more elaborate recipes can be an extremely effective way to get the most bang for your buck.
Fruit juices can be a very effective way to mask the taste of the kind of vegetables that can be harder to choke down on their own, giving you a delicious beverage with an explosion of vital nutrients. Read on for some of the best juicing recipes for weight loss.
For a refreshing, subtly sweet treat, this green juice is the perfect solution. Simply chop 3 celery stalks, half of a cucumber, a green apple, and a pear into small enough pieces to juice. Then, pop them into a juicer, and you will be left with a delicious and refreshing summer treat. This cooling juice tastes mostly like water with a hint of sweetness, but is packed with nutrients. A great introduction to green juices!
This recipe uses ginger to add some spicy flavor to a lot of nutrition in the form of carrots. This recipe calls for 2 apples of any variety you prefer, 5 unpeeled whole carrots, a half inch chunk of ginger root, and 1/4 of the fruit of a lemon (no peel). Again, make sure to chop everything into juicer-friendly chunks, and then go for it! This bright orange juice gets a lot of its flavor from the interplay between the spiciness of the ginger, the sweetness of the apple, and the sourness of the lemon. Sneaking in the background is the carrot, adding an enormous amount of healthy beta carotene to the mix. Spicy and delicious, this juice is a blast of flavor and nutrients.
The next recipe takes advantage of the powerful flavors of pineapple and banana to tuck some kale into the mix, creating an enormously sweet and nutritious juice. This calls for one quarter of the fruit of a pineapple (no core or skin), a whole ripe banana with no skin, and 4 leaves of kale. Again, make sure to cut the pineapple down to size, and then add it all to the juicer. This will create a thick green juice that tastes tropical and delicious, with not a hint of the bitter taste of kale. However, the nutrition will make it in. Dark leafy greens are bursting with vitamin C and other nutrients that make this juice much healthier than it tastes.
