juice

Yesterday Andrea bought a Juicer for me! We had a voucher because of returned goods in a home appliance store so...there it is!
Therefore this morning I was looking for nice and healthy recipes to share with you. First of all use the best quality produce you can get, great if it's organic or sustainably grown. If that's not happening, wash it gently, but thoroughly.

Healing cranberry cleanser
Ingredients
2 cups kale, fresh
1 cup water
1 cup cranberries
2 oranges, peeled
2 bananas
Directions
Cranberries are an antioxidant powerhouse, so get them fresh during the fall and winter. By drinking this Healing Cranberry Cleanser green smoothie with cranberry, your body will experience the immediate effects of natural energy. Get your healthy dose of vitamin C and fiber in this healing green smoothie! Blend kale and water until smooth. Next add the remaining fruits and blend again.

Peach coconut dream
Ingredients
2 cups spinach, fresh
1 cup coconut water
2 cups grapes
2 peaches
Directions
Enjoy this mildly sweet Peach Coconut Dream green smoothie— perfect for those watching their sugar intake. If you want it sweeter— feel free to add a banana, which also adds more potassium. Blend spinach and coconut water until smooth. Next add the remaining fruits and blend again.

Pink lady carrot
Ingredients
1 medium beet
5 large carrots
1 medium sweet potato
Directions
This juice is the easiest to make, requiring only three non-leafy ingredients! Blend al the ingredients together.

Pomegranate molasses
Ingredients
4 cups pomegranate juice
1/2 cup sugar
juice of 1 lemon
Directions
This is not just a juice.
 First of all extract the juice from the pomegranate. Then put all the ingredients in a saucepan and simmer on medium heat. Keep stirring once in a while for approximately 1.5 hours until the liquid has reduced by half and has thickened. Allow to cool before storing in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.

I found some interesting recipes on simplegreensmoothies, on 101cookbooks and on sipsandspoonfuls (pics comes from 101cookbooks). Enjoy and let me know if you have any suggestion or recipe!
