Energizing Acne Fighting Juice Recipes With a Nutribullet

Morning Juice Recipes With a Nutribullet

I’d really love to start juicing for real, with a real juicer. Most likely an Upright Masticating Juicer, still not sure which one. I’ve read a lot of reviews and articles on juicing and there are a few things that make me hesitant to purchase one; the cost, the size, the clean up, and the amount of organic veggies and fruit I need to purchase. There is a great local fruit and veggie delivery service in Toronto, they have a special basket for juicing, the large size is $60/week.  The cost is what scares me the most so I’ve decided to start small. This is where my juice recipes with a nutribullet come in to play. Obviously I can’t ‘juice’ but I can blend things that are easy to blend and benefit from the nutrients that way, right?

I drink one of these juices every morning on my way to work and I feel like they give me a little energy boost, keep my hydrated and help me stay full until lunch. I chose these ingredients because they are easy to blend, they are refreshing and supposed to be beneficial for the skin.

Grapefruit & Papaya:

Pineapple & Cucumber:

  • One handful frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 Cucumber (peeled and sliced)
  • 1 Apple (peeled and sliced, red delicious is my favourite)
  • Filtered water

To make life easier I pre cut all the pineapple and papaya into squares and separate them into the small snack ziploc baggies so I can just grab one in the morning. I like the rest of the ingredients to be fresh. This fills the large size cup that comes with the nutri-bullet.

There are so many benefits to pineapple, apple, cucumber, papaya and grapefruit. Here are a few:

Pineapple juice has an enzyme called Bromelain, this makes it a great anti-inflammatory and helps with digestion. Pineapple is a great source for anti-oxidants, which not only boost your immunity but also help to keep your skin and body look younger.

Papaya has a proteolytic enzyme called papain which is a great digestion aid. Each cup of papaya juice provides 164 milligrams of vitamin C (your entire recommended daily intake). Vitamin C promotes tissue strength by boosting the production of collagen, which helps your skin. It’s also a lot like pineapple in that it’s a great inflammatory.

Cucumbers are rich in two of the most basic elements needed for healthy digestion: water and fiber. This also means they are great for keeping you hydrated. Cucumbers are also a good pick-me up which makes them essential to my morning cocktails.

Grapefruit is common in weight loss plans. Doctors find eating grapefruits lowers insulin, instead of storing sugar and converting them to fats, it uses it as a fuel that leads to weight loss. Grapefruit is also a great fruit to consume to help fight cancer, it contains a group of beneficial phytonutrients, limonoids which might help shield you from cancer.

Apples have a lot of fibre, which can either pull water out of your colon to keep things moving along when you’re backed up, or absorb excess water from your stool to slow your bowels down. Also Foods high in fibre will fill you up without costing you too many calories.
