A Writer’s Got To Eat (And Drink): Simple & Healthy Superfood Juice

by @thewritermama on January 21, 2016

Even though our family gets flu shots every fall, it’s still hard to dodge the common colds and viruses going around all winter long.

This year I’ve started making superfood juice at the first sign of a sniffle and my only regret is that I have been so busy making it for Jason and Samantha that I haven’t had enough myself.

So I caught Samantha’s virus, and now I’m sitting down with a large glass of superfood juice (my second of the day) and sharing this recipe with you.

Give it a try. If it tastes good to you, your body will likely benefit from it.

I use a blender, but if you have a juicer, use that instead.

Simple & Healthy Superfood Juice

  • 2 cups of fresh organic orange juice (I got mine at Costco)
  • 1 cup of frozen wild organic blueberries (I got mine at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/2 cup of fresh raspberries (I got mine at Costco)
  • Handful of fresh parsley leaves (rinsed)
  • Handful of fresh cilantro leaves (rinsed)
  • 1-2 mini cucumbers
  • 2 long stalks of celery (or 4 short)
  • 6-10 baby carrots
  • 1 apple quartered and cored
  • 1 pear quartered and cored
  • Handful of Power Greens (I got mine at Trader Joe’s)

Combine ingredients in blender, blending as you go so that everything fits. Once all of the ingredients are blended, fill the blender to the top with more orange juice and run it a bit longer.

You don’t want the juice to be too thick because you need to pour it through a strainer. The juice will still be pulpy after you strain it, but at least you won’t have to chew it. It may take a few minutes for the juice to strain thoroughly. Be sure to get every last drop.

I strain into a large stainless steel bowl and then pour it into a container. Be sure to keep your juice refrigerated.

Rinse or wash blender, bowls, and utensils right after using to save yourself a headache later.

You could use these ingredients or whatever fruits and veggies you have in the house.

You could also add a green powder to your juice, if you like. One that I use and recommend is Vitamineral Green. But try the juice plain first because it’s so tasty.

Enjoy!
