Strawberry Rhubarb Juice

image

Rhubarb is in season! I am always looking for new ways to use the rhubarb that grows so abundantly in my garden. Rhubarb is high in iron, calcium and potassium. I recently read that 1 cup of cooked rhubarb has twice the amount of calcium than that of 1 cup of milk! When juicing rhubarb, be sure not to include the leaves because they are poisonous.

2 stalks rhubarb (trimmed)
5-6 strawberries
2 carrots
1 apple

Wash all produce thoroughly. Process through the juicer. Stir. Pour over ice and serve immediately.

Berry Basil Juice

We like to add basil to any juice for a fresh, herb flavour. However, basil can be a bit tricky to juice. We feed it through tube with other ingredients for best results. Basil helps with indigestion, nervous tension, stress and tension headaches.

1 bunch kale
2 small apples
2 cups strawberries
2 cups blueberries
handful fresh basil

Wash all produce thoroughly. Process through the juicer. Stir. Pour over ice and serve immediately.

This juice is high in antioxidants and vitamins. It’s fresh, delicious and super quick to process. Be sure to wash all of the produce well before juicing.

5-6 medium carrots
2 apples
1 medium lime or 3 key limes

Using a juicer process carrots, apples and limes. Whisk and pour over ice. Drink immediately.

Green Goodness Juice

Juicing is definitely gaining popularity. I first began learning about juicing in the Hungry for Change documentary http://www.hungryforchange.tv/ Afterwards, I was intrigued and curious to learn more. After (what felt like) extensive research, I purchased a Breville Juice Fountain which is a centrifugal juicing system. I’ve been juicing several times a week and have been loving experimenting with new creations. I definitely have increased my daily veggie intake and I have also been a having fun trying out new items from the produce section! Experts say that there are many benefits to drinking fresh juice including an improved immune system, increased energy and clear skin. No wonder it is becoming popular!

1 English cucumber
