Blood oranges & cucumbers are both in season and oh-so-delicious. The blood oranges can be a bit tart, so I added the cucumber to cut down on the tartness in the juice. I also added a little fresh ginger to give it an extra zing (plus ginger is a wonderful anti-inflammatory). All three ingredients are very cleansing for your body.
This smoothie is SO delicious. You don’t need any additional liquids because the watermelon is made of more than 90% water- as soon as you blend it, it becomes a sweet, delicious liquid base!
Another recipe that is so simple and easy to make, but wanted to post it to share the idea. Strawberries are coming back into season and they’re so flavorful, adding them to your water is another great way to enjoy them! I call this ‘cool aid’ because after the strawberries soak in the water, it becomes a sweet fruit beverage.
This juice is light and delicious. Refreshing cucumber will keep you hydrated and help smoothen your skin and hair, while clementines are rich in immune boosting vitamin-C.
Simple limeade in a glass makes a nice treat. Half the sugar of regular lemonade, plus vitamins and enzymes from raw lemon and lime. Stock up on limes and lemons at your local farmer’s market and store them in the refrigerator to last longer.
This juice is a great way to get in some vitamins and minerals from your greens, yet it’s sweet and delicious.
This juice doesn’t only taste refreshing, it’s incredible for the skin. Carrots are high in vitamin-A (helps clear up acne and stops dryness) and beta-carrotene (a powerful antioxidant that can repair skin damage). Cucumbers cleanse digestion (fun fact: did you know how you digest food directly impacts your skin?) and has a cooling effect on your skin. Ginger reduces inflammation and boosts the immune system. And lemon juice is just all sorts of wonderful for you: it helps fight blackheads and aging, it’s a relaxing agent if you’re stressed (something I could definitely use at times ha) and it also helps with digestion (remember when I said digestion is directly correlated with skin?)
