The summer heat is really getting to me and I have been juicing like crazy trying to come up with delicious new recipes that give me my dose of nutrition, quench my thirst, and taste yummy and I think I found a winner!!!
This juice makes about eight and half cups of juice, a little over 64 oz. of pure deliciousness. Are you ready to find out what is in this tasty treat??
1 Carton of Strawberries
Juice that baby up, strain, put it in a glass with ice and drink to your hearts desire!! You can’t even taste the carrots, but you can sure taste the mango! Here is what I promised in my Thank Goodness For Apples post, all the nutritional info!
Pineapple: Filled with vitamins and minerals which means certain minerals like manganese are good for bones and certain vitamins like C helps to prevent this sickies! Another thing that I found out was that it is good for keeping your gums healthy and there is this magical enzyme called Bromelain which aids in digestion along with other properties.
Pomegranates: Despite the finger strength training you get from removing the seeds you also benefit from it’s many anti-oxidants that protect against heart disease and cancer (it’s those wonderful flavonoids and polyphenols at work again). Then there are punicalagins which apparently are unique only to pomegranates and work wonders for the heart!
Mangoes: Great for removing toxins and is awesome for cleaning pores (hmm might have to try that in a face mask soon!) thanks to collagen. Let’s not forget our vitamins, mangoes contain Vitamin A and C which are great anti-oxidants for optimal health!\
Peaches: Due to beta-carotene it is makes you have night vision (not really, it’s just good for your eyes) and also promotes healthy skin, even fights free radicals due to it’s pluthera of anti-oxidants.
Plums: Aid in the ability to absorb iron and contains vitamin c which is good for repairing tissues and building a healthy immune system. Keeps your eyes sharp and are known for their natural laxative properties.
Carrots: Carotenoids!! Need I say more? If so did you know that they are synergistic which means that it is harmonious for you to eat these Vitamin A sticks? Try finding out that they make your skin glow and help flush out the liver. You can even use it for medicinal purposes.
Strawberries: This anti-oxidant rich powerhouse of a fruit is an anti-inflammatory thanks to manganese (which also helps with awesome bones) and helps combat cancerous cells due to it’s extremely high Vitamin C content. Just to name a few.
Let me know if you have anything else to add! For times sake I must come to an end, but until next time!
