3 Super-Healing Summer Juices

3 Super-Healing Summer Juices

Who doesn’t love a glass of fresh juice on a hot summer day? These three recipes are not only thirst-quenching and delicious, they’re also cleansing and healing. Enjoy!

Body Cooler

This delicious juice helps to cool your body temperature while quelling inflammation and pain. The celery contains many anti-pain and anti-inflammatory compounds.

  • 4 carrots
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 apple, cored

Juice all ingredients in a juicer. Drink immediately.

Blood, Liver, and Kidney Cleanser

Dandelion is useful for cleansing the blood, kidneys, and liver. When added to apple juice it makes a great green-colored cocktail.

  • 3 apples
  • handful of fresh dandelion leaves (if you are digging them yourself, be sure to obtain organic dandelion where there has been no spraying and far removed from traffic areas.

Pass all ingredients through a juicer. Drink immediately.
Note: Be aware that dandelion is a natural diuretic and should not be mixed with diuretic medications.

Citrus Cocktail

The grapefruit and lemon help break down fat stores and make your body chemistry more alkaline. The orange adds more vitamin C and sweetens this juice.

  • 1 orange
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 cup water

Juice all ingredients with a citrus juicer or peel the ingredients and blend together with water in a blender. Drink immediately.
