Drink The Rainbow!

    Directions

    Ever heard of the expression ‘eat the rainbow’? How about DRINK the rainbow?!

    I’ve been into fruit and vegetable juices for many years now but tend to make smoothies more often for convenience. When I do feel like having a vibrant and full of nutrients juice, I make one of these four juices.

    All four juices are just 3 ingredients each! I like to keep it simple and pair the ingredients that compliment each other.

    A bit about the health benefits:

    Green Juice (kale, apple, cucumber): Both the kale and green apple are high in fiber which is great for digestive health. Cucumber keeps you hydrated and helps flush out toxins.

    Orange Juice (orange, carrot, ginger): As most of us know oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C which helps boost immunity. Carrots protect eye health and are a great source of antioxidants. Ginger is among the healthiest spices on the planet. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects and can help lower blood sugars and improve heart disease risk factors.

    Yellow Juice (yellow bell pepper, lemon, grapefruit): Yellow bell peppers are sweet and contain fiber, protein and iron. Lemon and grapefruit help to boost levels of vitamin C in your body.

    Purple Juice (red beet, celery, lemon): Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium. These are all good for our bones, liver and kidneys. Celery is an excellent source of antioxidants and has beneficial enzymes. It also contains vitamins K, C, potassium and folate.

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Green Juice

    Wash the kale and apple. As I buy organic produce I do not peel the apple or cucumber. No need to remove the kale stems either. Cut the apple in half and add to the juicer. Add 3-4 leaves of kale at a time and add the cucumber in whole.

    If you are using a high-speed blender, blend everything on high then strain using a fine mesh strainer.

    This makes 1 serving.

    2
    Done

    Orange Juice

    Peel the orange and cut in half. Wash the carrots and keep whole. I do not peel the carrots to keep it easy. I also toss in the knob of ginger into the juicer as is.

    If you are using a high-speed blender, cut the ginger in half. Blend everything on high then strain using a fine mesh strainer.

    This makes 1 serving.

    Done

    Yellow Juice

    Wash the yellow bell pepper and cut in half then remove the stem. Peel the lemon and grapefruit. Cut the grapefruit in half. Press everything through your juicer.

    If you are using a high-speed blender, blend everything on high then strain using a fine mesh strainer.

    This makes 1 serving.

    Done

    Purple Juice

    Peel the beet and lemon and wash your celery. Press everything through your juicer.

    If you are using a high-speed blender, blend everything on high then strain using a fine mesh strainer.

    This makes 1 serving.

    I love the simple ingredients! I shy away from juicing most of the time because of the time factor and a busy house – these look much easier to manage!

    This reminds me of the Skittles marketing phrase TASTE THE RAINBOW! Except, this is the rainbow I’d much rather taste! YUMMY!

    Wow, so so beautiful! SO kind of you to share so many recipes in one post with us. I LOVE lemon and beets in smoothies, and cucumbers, too. They’re all beautiful!

    So refreshing and colorful! I really love beet juice, despite the fact that I don’t like cooked beets, so I’ll need to give this version a whirl.

    This is so gorgeous! I love the idea of yellow pepper in the yellow juice – I’ve never thought to use peppers in my juicing.
