Hey home free fam! It’s been awhile since we’ve posted- we’ve been busy with the move but are all settled into our new home in Asheville 🙂 We have taken this opportunity to really revamp our health and habits. Focusing on our health internally with the foods with put into our body as well as externally through physical exercise. So far we’ve enjoyed hiking, tubing, and rollerblading around our new area. As well as yoga and Qi Gong in the mornings on our cute porch outside. With a focus on diet and exercise we can already feel our spiritual side flourishing.

I wanted to share some delicious juice recipes I recently used. Juicing allows for the increased absorption of nutrients and increased consumption of fruits and veggies. The juicer I use is older and was given to me from my parents who purchased it during the days of infomercials on TV…you can use the links below to view some affordable juicers on Amazon.

Check out the recipes below

Ginger Zinger

Ingredients: 5 stalks celery, 2 stalks kale, 1/2 cucumber, 2.5 cm ginger root, 1/2 lemon, and 2 apples. The amount of each ingredient used is dependent on how much juice you want. I prefer to juice enough for the week so the amounts I used made approximately 3 servings.

Sweet Beet

Ingredients: 3 beets, 5 carrots*, 4 celery stalks, 1/2 lemon, 1.5 cm ginger root, 2 apples. These amounts created approximately 5 servings.

Summer Surprise

Ingredients: 2 oranges, 3 apples, 4 carrots*, 3 celery stalks, 1.5 cm ginger root, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, and 1 tsp ground turmeric. Approximately 5 servings.

*Please note our carrots were fresh from the local farm and a lot smaller than the ones you find in the grocery store.


For each recipe, I would use a measuring cup to collect the juice, pouring into the mason jar container I was using for each batch as necessary. There is no order you need to juice the fruits and veggies in, and I didn’t find it necessary to clean the juicer between each recipe. Once each recipe was completed I put the lid on the mason jar and immediately placed into the refrigerator. Keep in mind fresh juice is perishable and begins oxidizing immediately, your juice should be consumed within a few days.

Drop a comment and let us know your fav juicing recipes or if you have any questions about the ones we shared today. Much love, Nikki
