Here are some of our favorite natural fruit juice recipes:
Simple Apple Juice
– 3 large apples
Cut out the stems and mix sweet and tart apples for the best fresh juice taste.
Juicing the peel will greatly increase the antioxidant of the juice. The peels and skins of fruits and vegetables are where you will find the majority of antioxidants. This is their protection against oxidative damage as a result of sun exposure. Flavonoids are the type of antioxidant found most abundantly in apples and their peel.
Sweet Orange Juice
– 5 large oranges
Peel oranges, juice and enjoy.
For increased antioxidant content juice the white pith too, but don’t juice the peel because it tastes awful! The pith is loaded with antioxidants called flavonoids and juicing it will greatly increaser the overll antioxidant profile of the juice. You can even scrape a little more of the white stuff from inside the peel and put that through the juicer, too.
– 3 oranges
– 1 grapefruit
Peel, juice, enjoy.
Peel kiwis and wash berries, juice, enjoy.
