If you need an energy booster drink without having to worry about extra calories yet being nutritiously wholesome, then put the coffee cup down, instead, take the time to blend or juice your way to a healthy, delicious glass of juice that will keep you pumped full of energy, refreshed and ready to go. Try one of these top three juicing recipes and see for yourself the change in levels of energy and productivity.
Jicama Pear Juice
Wondering what Jicama is? Well it looks something like a potato but taste more like a cross between celery and kiwi which is easily available in super markets. Jicama (also known as Mexican potato) tastes especially good in combination with either pears or carrots.
- 2 cups of peeled and chopped Jicama
- 2 carrots
- 1 ripe pear
- 1 peeled lemon
- A few mint leaves for garnish (optional)
It’s a simple two step process, place all the ingredients except the mint leaves into a blender and blend till smooth, use a sieve if necessary to remove all the pulp, if you are using a juicer you won’t need to do this. Finally garnish with mint for that five star feeling. This recipe yields two glasses of juice and would only take 5 minutes.
This next recipe packs a healthy punch, filled with protein and fiber and just the right amount of fat and calories to keep you fit. All you need are the ingredients and a blender and viola! you’re all set.
- 1 golden beetroot
- 3 large carrots
- 4 stalks of celery
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1/2 thumb ginger
- 1 medium pear
Toss all your ingredients into a blender and hit start, pour out your delicious concoction and feel your energy build as you drink up.
