Diet Juice Recipe
If you juice at home with a juicer, you are removing a lot of the fiber that helps your body properly process fructose, but many of the best nutrients are still available. Fruit juices can be reduced in calories, and in cost, if you mix them with half a glass of water, or make them a third water.
Diet juices at the store are likely mixed with water and added flavors and artificial sweeteners to make them taste good.
This is incredibly unhealthy, mainly because chemical sweeteners are dangerous. There is no need to drink diet juice at all, but if you are fighting candida or sugar addiction, or simply want to make your homemade juice last longer, dilute the recipes below with water.
This will make them more hydrating, and less caloric. You can also squeeze in a bit of fresh lemon juice afterwards to boost flavor and antioxidants. Most of the recipes below combine fruits and vegetables, which lowers the sugars already, so, again, diluting is optional, not necessary.
Cranberries and Carrots:
Your success with this diet juice recipe depends on your juicer.
Many household juicers rotate too fast to make the most out of berries. If you have a high-powered rotary juicer, juice the cranberries in your blender after juicing the carrots and apples. You can blend the three ingredients nicely:
1 cup fresh cranberries
1 sm zucchini squash
1 to 2 cups cauliflower florets plus stalk
1 to 2 cups broccoli florets plus stalk
4 celery stalks
Leafs and Berries:
Again, you may need to use your blender for the berries part of this. Juice the large leafs first, such as the kale, romaine and red leaf lettuce. You can then include the juice in the blender with the berries and spinach.
1 bunch Romaine lettuce
1 Bunch kale
1 bunch Red Leaf Lettuce
½ cup strawberries
½ cup blueberries
½ cup raspberries
1 kiwi fruit
½ cup spinach
