Let’s start!

1. Roasted Pineapple Juice

According to the USDA, pineapple is as a rich source of Vitamin C: one serving of 165g has 130 percent of an average person’s daily need.

As Vitamin C water soluble antioxidant has the potential to heal cell damage, consuming pineapple juice may help reduce wrinkles, improve skin texture. It potentially helps reduce joint pain and heart diseases, and battle against cancer.

Pineapples are also rich in various other antioxidants, including vitamin A, beta carotene, bromelain, various flavonoid compounds, and high levels of manganese.

And more importantly, pineapple juice is super tasty!

Best time to drink

The vitamin C in pineapple juice doesn’t require food to be absorbed into your digestive system. You can drink it on an empty stomach in the morning before breakfast.

However, since it contains a large amount of the acid, drinking pineapple juice after meal may be a better option for some people with a sensitive stomach. The juice aids with digestion too, as it contains some protein-digesting enzymes in it.

Ingredients (For 2 servings)

  • 4 fresh pineapple
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp black salt
  • 1 lemon juice
  • Optional: Fresh chopped mint leaves for decoration

Directions

  • 1. Roast the fresh pineapple until it is well cooked
  • 2. Peel and core the pineapple, cut it into small cubes. Juice it with a juicer.
  • 3. Add pepper powder, black salt, and lemon juice into the juice.
  • 4. Decorate with roasted cumin powder and chopped mint.

2. Mixed Fruits And Spinach Juice

While apple and pineapple is very rich in vitamin C, spinach is a great source of Vitamin A. 3.5 oz or 100 gram of the vegetable can offer more than a half of your daily need of the vitamin!

As it works as an antioxidant, the vitamin A in spinach supports healthy vision, skin, bones and other tissues in the body.

Spinach also contains a lot of Vitamin B3, which helps control cholesterol levels and potentially lowers the risk of Alzheimer's disease, cataracts, osteoarthritis, and type 1 diabetes.

Spinach juice will also provide zinc, fiber, vitamins C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, and other minerals. What a source of nourishments!

Mixed Fruits And Spinach Juice

Best time to drink

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin. That means it is absorbed in fat globules that travel through the lymphatic system of the small intestines and into the bloodstream.

Thus, the best time to drink this juice is after you eat a little of something fatty – salmon, liver, or avocado. The fat will help your body absorb the vitamin quickly.

Ingredients (For 2 servings)

  • 1 cup fresh pineapple, chopped
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 medium green apple
  • 1 Tbsp ginger, peeled and chopped
  • optional: 2 Tbsp mint leaves. 1/2 grapefruit, peeled and de-seeded.

Directions

  • 1. Juice the lemon
  • 2. Core and slice the apple. Use this amazing apple corer and slicer!
  • 3. Juice all the greens, followed by the fruit. By juicing the more fibrous ingredients first so they won’t get stuck in the machine. Try this order: spinach, some apple, parsley, some pineapple, ginger, rest of apple, rest of pineapple, lemon juice.
  • 4. Add the lemon juice to the mixture.

3. Fresh Pressed Ginger Pear Juice

Pear is a rich source of copper and other minerals. Copper plays an important role in the formation of collagen, thus helping to prevent wrinkles and maintain the young look on your skin. It also utilises iron absorption and supports enzymatic reactions in the body.

Pear juice is beneficial to your skin, hair, eyes, and the growth of your body as a whole. You can even serve this at any sort of party - it looks fashionable, and has an exotic taste.

Best time to drink

Any time! My personal favorite use of this ginger juice is just before a meal. The light sweetness and sourness of the pear, the tamarin and the lemon combines with the gentle “bite” of the ginger to make this drink a perfect appetizer.

This pear ginger juice is very low in calories, so you can even drink it before bedtime if you want.

Ingredients (For 2 servings)

  • 1 large organic pear
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger
  • 1 medium sized tangerine
  • 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice

  • 2. Wash and slice the pear. (Core it if you want.) Peel the ginger.
  • 3. Juice tangerine and lemon juice. Set aside in a glass.
  • 4. Turn on the juicer to turn your pear and ginger. Finish by pouring the citrus juice right into the juicer to blend them together. Pour the mixture into the glasses.
  • 5. Put the ginger chew garnish on top, and the juice is ready to be served!

4. Low-Carb Star Fruit Ginger Juice

Starfruit is a fruit very low in calories: a serving of the fruit provides only 51 calories! It is one of the few fruit juices that have a very little amount of carbohydrates. Unlike many other fruit juices, this is a drink you can enjoy while on a low-carb diet.

While low in sugar, the fruit is high in the cell-healing Vitamin C, B-complex, and other anti-oxidants. If you’re looking for a tasty drink that is beneficial to your health and the skin, this is it.

5. Mixed Wheatgrass Juice

Wheatgrass contains almost all of the vitamins we need, especially the B complex, and a large number of minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, and phytonutrients. Two ounces of wheatgrass juice has the nutritional equivalent of five pounds of the best raw organic vegetables!

Unfortunately, wheatgrass juice alone tastes somewhat...boring to say the least. In this recipe, the grass is combined with lemon, apple, and carrots to make a more tasty, appealing and freshening drink. Of course, it is also a perfect source of antioxidants.
