Juicing Recipes for Energy
Need a little extra zip, and you want to do it naturally, healthily and without the aid of stimulants. If so you’re in the right place. Here are some great juicer recipes for energy that you can make at home with your juice extractor. Green juices and citrus fruit juices are especially good for providing energy because of their detoxification abilities and their natural electrolytes respectively. Enjoy!
Energy Juice Recipe #1 – Get-up-and-go Greens
3 celery stalks
handful of spinach
handful of kale
1″ slice of ginger
This get-up-and-go juice is a fantastic energy enhancer. It’s packed with blood-purifying greens, minerals and vitamins. Spinach and kale are abundant with beta-carotene and vitamin C. It helps with liver cleansing and supports blood flow. Celery is an extremely alkaline vegetable and helps with digestion. It gives you a good amount of magnesium, calcium and natural sodium, which together helps transmit signals from our brains to our muscles so that they function properly, clearly a benefit for energy levels. Ginger is excellent at helping to reduce inflammation in the body, especially in the joints, therefore helping to support maneuverability.
Juicing Recipes for Energy #2 – Citrus Electrolyte Blast
1/2 a large pink grapefruit
1/2 of a lemon
Oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, limes and lemons–try to have these fruits always on hand because they are excellent natural sources of electrolytes. Oranges are an especially great choice. That’s why you might have seen athletes knocking back some juicy slices or downing an orange juice. Citrus juice really does make for great juicer recipes for energy. Don’t juice the peels they make for a very unpleasant taste and contain oils that can upset digestion. The white pith, however, is very healthy and loaded with antioxidants, more so than the flesh in fact!
Juice Recipes for Energy #3 – Veggie Vroom
3 Stalks of celery
1 Handful of spinach
1/4 cup of fresh parsley
Parsley is quite powerful and must always be combined with other juices. Use only tiny amounts at any given time. Parsley is rich in vitamin C and is known as a general stimulant for the body. Celery juice is a great neural tonic and overall body builder. It can help with muscle exhaustion. This juice is good for healthy hair and skin too.
