Last Wednesday I posted two recipes of winter juices Unexpected fresh juices for winter time! / Prophylactic self-isolation series. Day 328th.
And today I need to say, it is not enough!
Why juices? Winter is probably the time to facilitate digestion and boost a physical body with radiant beverages from Nature. Let’s make a nectar of the day!
Today’s recipes are White Cabbage juice and Turbo Cranberry juice!
Before you start
juicer, fine mesh small strainer
Basic rule: before you start you may wash/clean/peel and drain/dry vegetables, herbs, fruits and other ingredients when needed
|White cabbage||300-400 g||0.7-09. lb|
|Aloe vera slices (optional)||3-4||3-4|
Why this combination?
Apple with lemon
might seem banal, but in fact it is a golden combination for making right juice product. It matches well with most of veggies and adds some sweetness. Apple + lemon combination does not work with too-sweet fruits like banana, grapes, mango, etc.
Adds watery consistency to the final product and is almost neutral in taste
In fact, this vegetable is the main ingredient here to make a juice something special, but not only a sweet regular drink. All other ingredients work for it.
Great additive. Those who have tried mono-celery juice would definitely confirm, celery stems are good cleansers for a digestion tract. In combination with other ingredients it adds a great taste.
Improves digestion and beauty of skin. Very good ingredient for morning juices
|Fresh or frozen cranberries||300 g||0.7 lb|
Why this combination?
Grapefruit with apple
The same as for lemon with apple, this combination could be kept a golden standard: citrus plus neutral fruit – an apple. Citrus fruits do not match with too-sweet fruits and berries like grapes, banana, mango because different ferments are involved in their digestion. To neutralize a bit the acidic taste of grapefruit and make it sweeter – apple is added.
Sour berries, created by Nature to consume in late autumn and winter. Great source of vibrant vitamins! Dried cranberries are usually boosted with sugar (or with apple juice which was made with sugar) and therefore, eating dried cranberries contributes to refined sugar intake. The recipe in this post is a great opportunity to change the thing for good – no refined sugar for sure!
How to make these juices:
- Just use a juicer and make a juice of your choice – White Cabbage or Turbo Cranberry juice, but one of this in a day is more than enough.
- Before juicing, peel a lemon/grapefruit of course:)
- I use to strain juice after juicing – the taste is better; because small particles of veggies and fruits still appear in a juice if not straining it.
