I wouldn’t say that the juice recipes discussed in this article is the elixir of youth but it contains enough antioxidants to prevent oxidative stress or damage to your body from the environment or food you eat every day. Here are some juicing recipes to help reverse aging or at least slow down the aging process.
#1 Fountain of Youth Cocktail Recipe
This first recipe uses a lot of berries and is what I call the “Fountain of Youth Cocktail”.
Berries are well known to have high content of antioxidants. This is mainly attributed to the high surface to volume ratio that ensures a relatively higher proportion of pigmented skin. Raspberries and blackberries are used in this cocktail. Check out the ingredients below!
¼” knob of ginger, unpeeled if organic
1 pint blackberries
1 pint raspberries
Use your juicer to blend the ginger
Next blend it with berries in the juicer
Juice the lemon by hand
Stir and serve immediately
#2 A Beeting Heart
Beets are rich in fibre, phytochemicals and many minerals. Cantaloupe, used in this recipe also contains myoinositol, a lipid that can prevent hardening of arteries. Hence, the name! Drink this to your heart’s content!
2 medium carrots
1 beet, greens remove
½ cantaloupe melon, peeled.
Juice all ingredients and serve immediately!
#3 Liquid Ambrosia
Pomegranate is rich in Vitamin C and this makes it a very powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals and this means less cell damage, better cell healing and hence improved wellbeing. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals that causes oxidant damage that also damages collagen and elastin that are the building blocks of protein.
So besides pomegranate, what else do you use to make Liquid Ambrosia? Check it out below!
1 pomegranate fruit
2 small oranges
Slice open the pomegranate and scoop out the seeds using a spoon.
Juice the pomegranate seeds in a juicer of your choice while manually juice the orange using your hands
Stir together and serve. ENJOY!
#4 Green Monster
This recipe uses a combination of a lot of healthy vegetables that you may not drink so often. Think of vegetableslike wheatgrass, celery and spinach leaves.This “Green Monster Recipe”uses these ingredients. But take note, not all juicers work well juicing vegetables especially wheatgrass as they need special wheatgrass juicers or masticating juicers to help make the job easier.
[box type=”info”] Alternatively, you can have a look at some great masticating juicers that will definitely juice wheatgrass effectively [/box]
1 cup wheatgrass
1 celery stalk with leaves
1 handful spinach leaves
2 kale leaves
½ lemon, peeled.
Prepare wheatgrass shot in a wheatgrass juicer or blender
Juice all the remaining ingredients in the recipe
Stir and serve immediately
I hope the recipes above will inspire you to make some of them in the kitchen as they are healthy and wholesome. You will certainly need a different kind of juicer if you are planning to juice some of the vegetables and wheatgrass found in the recipe above. Normal centrifugal juicers will not do the job well.
