Get the Most from your Juice! Top Ten Fresh Juice Tips

 

ultimate juices and smoothies

We all know that fresh juices and smoothies are great ways to get much-needed nutrients – they are a fun way to make sure we get the fruits and vegetables we need to eat every day for optimum health.

But if you’re making juices and smoothies, you want to be sure you’re doing it right, so you gain the most benefit and the best nutrition.

Here are my Top Ten Best Fresh Juice Tips:

Fresh Juice Tip #1 – Fewer Ingredients

fresh juice - fewer ingredients are bestWhen you’re making a juice, don’t go crazy with too many flavours.

You do not need to throw every vegetable and fruit you have into each juice or smoothie you make!

Choose two or perhaps three good vegetables, and add an apple for sweetness.

The taste of each fruit or vegetable you use will be able to shine through your blend.

Fresh Juice Tip #2 – Pay Attention

Whenever you add a new ingredient to a juice or smoothie, pay attention to what your body tells you.

It’s possible that certain ingredients just may not mesh with your body’s systems.

When you pinpoint the problem ingredient, you know exactly where the problem lies.

Then you can decide not to include it again, or just add a tiny amount each day to get your body used to it.

Fresh Juice Tip #3 – Combinations

One of the big benefits of fresh, homemade juices is that they are pure, nutrient-rich liquids that are very easy for your body to digest.

Smoothies on the other hand include the pulp of the fruit and vegetables used to make them. This means you get extra fibre and protein. Plus they’re more filling, which can be beneficial if you wish to lose weight because you’ll eat less of other foods.

Tip:- If you want the benefits of both methods, use your juicer to make a juice, but add in some of the pulp that you’d normally discard. You can also add fresh chunks of some of the vegetable ingredients. This makes the juice more filling and satisfying – the best of both worlds!

Fresh Juice Tip #4 – Strain Your Juice

If on the other hand, you want a juice with absolutely no pulp, and your juicing machine sometimes leaves a little pulp in the final mixture, simply filter the juice as it comes out through some cheesecloth, or use a coffee filter in the top of the glass you’re juicing into.

This will also get rid of a lot of the foam your juicer produces.

Fresh Juice Tip #5 – Get Kids to Eat Veggies

Juice some yummy fruits, and quietly throw in a vegetable or two – your children will never know the difference.

 

Fresh Juice Tip #6– Drink Immediately or Store Correctly

After juicing, you should drink the juice immediately. You’ll get the most beneficial nutrients that way.

If you won’t be drinking your juice or smoothie immediately, you need to store it in the refrigerator.

Always store it in an airtight container, to “lock in” the goodness.

And try to use a container which is just the right size – a large jar that is only half full of juice, will also contain half air. When your container is full or nearly full of juice, there’s no room for air.

Fresh Juice Tip #7 – Add Lemon Juice

Sometimes juices may discolour when left in the fridge. To avoid this, add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. It will act as a natural preservative and keep your juice fresher and colourful.

Fresh Juice Tip #8 – Ways to Lose Weight with Juices

Homemade fresh juices and smoothies are a great way to help lose weight if you wish, but just drinking loads of them won’t necessarily have the pounds melting away!

Here are some ways you can help:

  • Because fresh juices are, well, just liquid, it’s easy to just gulp one down. Instead, savour the juice, and drink it slowly. Allow yourself to enjoy each and every flavour contained in it. Keep it in your mouth for a few moments before swallowing to fully appreciate it (and start the digestion process).
  • use kale in fresh juiceDrink a fresh juice prior to a meal. You get great health benefits from juicing and provide your body with a good tasting snack as well.  As an extra benefit, by the time you’re ready to eat, you won’t be nearly as hungry, so you’ll take in fewer calories.
  • Use lots of low- or negative-calorie foods in your juices so that you don’t have to burn off much energy after drinking your juices.  Herbs, cabbage and deep green veggies like kale and broccoli are perfect. In addition, fruits that are high in fibre are an excellent choice, because it requires a large amount of digestion in order to effectively break them down.

Fresh Juice Tip #9 – Remember 70

fresh juice should be green juice You’re making juices and smoothies in order to get more nutrition from your food and become healthier. So make your juices and smoothies with at least 60% to 70% greens – for example broccoli, chard, kale, parsley and spinach.

Use the remaining percentage to flavour the juice with other vegetables or fruits.

Fruit juices are not as beneficial to you as juices based on greens.
