Happy New year everyone! Here’s my daily health juice recipe to start off the new year on a great, healthy note 🙂
Borosil India with the Food Bloggers’ Association of India, just sent over their newly launched juicer. Stylish, sleek and extremely easy to use, it has got me hooked!
My health juice (more red than green) is my absolute daily fix. Filled with ingredients that are great for your hair, skin and overall well being, my day is pretty much incomplete without the juice. I allow myself 3 portions of vegetables in a day, the juice being one of them. The benefits of green juice cannot be experienced overnight, so if you’re thinking you will wake up with glowing skin a week’s time, sorry to burst your bubble ! They have multiple benefits in the long run, especially protecting you against several diseases.
Tomatoes are rich sources of Vitamin C, B6, K, betacarotene, potassium and iron. Carrots as we know are rich in Vitamins A & C, potassium, iron and folate. Coriander has disinfectant, detoxifying, antiseptic, anti fungal and antioxidant properties. It also stimulates digestion. Garlic is also is filled with Vitamins A, C and B-complex.
1 medium sized beetroot
1/2 red apple
1 small clove garlic
1 small green chilli
1 medium sized carrot
Juice of 1 lemon
(I add half an apple purely for taste)
1. Dice all the tomatoes, the beetroot, the carrot and the apple and put them into the Borosil Juice mixer. Then blend the coriander, chilli and garlic.
2. Pour into a clean glass and squeeze the juice of half a lemon. Serve immediately.
Green juices can lose their nutrients very quickly if not consumed as soon as they have been prepared.
Tip: Do not dice / chop the vegetables and leave them overnight. Prep them exactly before making your juice.
You can also add mint and spinach leaves as they have great health benefits as well.
