Hey January goals! I am looking at you girl! Everyone else still feeling the high of a new year and goals to crush? Well if you are, here is a great juicing recipe to keep you going! And, if you’re not, well then here is a great juicing recipe to get you excited about those health goals again!
Either way, this is for you! And, ultimately it’s just a dang good juice recipe.
A juicer is one of those things that I didn’t really think I needed, until I got one. And, now this bad boy gets so much use. I like who I am when I’m juicing. Like, I can be anyone. I could be that California yoga girl who casually surfs for her afternoon workout. Or, the bad ass fitness babe with abs for days. You can be anyone when you juice.
I bought this juicer and have been really happy with it. It’s really heavy duty, made from stainless steel, and cuts through whatever fruit or vegetable I throw at it. I’ve used less expensive ones made from plastic, and they just flat out didn’t work as well.
Ha! Okay, maybe we are going a little far. But, when I make the effort to give my body what it needs, I do feel like I can conquer the world. And, I could be any version of myself that I want. That is a pretty powerful feeling.
What I hear from people a lot about starting to use a juicer is that they are messy. And, I won’t argue that fact. But, what I will argue is that the smaller, removable parts I just pop in the dishwasher. And, so it really isn’t much more work than a blender. If your budget limits you to a juicer, or a blender, then I would go with the blender. A good, high end blender, like this one I have, is so versatile. And, if that’s a little outside your blender budget, I used this one for years, and still use it as our camping blender. Believe me, it’s a million times better than a Ninja.
Why you want a juicer in addition to a blender though is for vegetables. In a smoothie, I’ll do dark leafy greens, like spinach, kale and chard. But, with a juicer you can break down those veggies even better. So, it opens up cucumber, ginger, and beets.
- 1" knob of fresh ginger
- ½ apple
- 3 carrots
- ¼-1/3 pineapple
- Add all ingredients into juicer.
- Serve and enjoy!
