6 Tasty and Nutritious Juice Ideas

If you are concerned about your health, excessive weight or a particular health problem, have you tried juicing? The first obvious benefit of juices is that they are healthy. But they have many other benefits too.

E.g. they are easy to make. You don’t have to cook anything and even don’t need a lot of prepping. You’ll just need a juicer. If its feeding chute is wide enough, you don’t even have to cut the produce – you can throw them in as they are. And once your juicing is over, you’ll have to wash the juicer’s parts that come in contact with your produce so as to eliminate the risk of germ buildup and contamination of juice. That’s it.

Another benefit of juices is that they are tasty. This means that you get health without compromising taste. Here are a few such tasty and nutritious juice ideas.

1. Pure Green Juice

These have a lot of water in them; so this juice will keep you well-hydrated, along with offering a big dose of vitamins, minerals and enzymes.

You’ll need:

  • 1 handful of spinach leaves
  • ½ large cucumber

2. Zingy Fruit Juice

If you crave sweets, eating (or drinking the juice of) fruits is always a better idea than munching chocolates, donuts and muffins. And if you enjoy a spicy flavor added to fruit juice, this recipe will give you what you want because it’s added with red chili and ginger for that spicy zing. If you don’t want it, you can just cut down on the spices and enjoy the juice made only of fruit. Or you can even add dry ginger powder. Adding ginger and chili is advisable because they come with their own sets of health benefits.

You can make this juice with:

  • 1 big or 2 medium apples
  • ½ pineapple
  • ½ mango
  • 2 tomatoes
  • ½ red chili
  • ½ inch raw ginger

This juice needs a bit of preparation. You’ll have to peel the pineapple and lime. Remember to remove all the seeds from the chili and remove the stone from the mango. To make this juice even more nutritious and tasty, you can even add carrots to it. Also, after the juice is ready, you can pour it over a handful of ice and enjoy the super-cool juice.
