We had some kiwi fruits leftover from an impulsive fruit and veg shop and they were on the verge of going off, so I whipped up this fresh kiwi juice to have the other morning.
The nitty gritty of this kiwi juice recipe (makes two servings):
- 3 kiwi fuits
- 4 apples
- 2 sticks of celery
- 1 lime
- 1 chunk of ginger
- A handful of parsley
- A handful of mint
Peel the lime, then chuck everything in your juicer and juice.
Pour the juice over ice and blend. Then you’re done!
Oh my goodness… can you see the time. It’s sooo early!
But I can still fake a nice happy smile for you guys!
How fluffy is my hair in these photos? I feel like Hermione from Harry Potter in books 1-3 before she found conditioner and other hair products!
Why Is This Kiwi Juice Good For You?
- Kiwi: Kiwi’s contain a high level of vitamin c, almost twice as much as an orange. They are also a good source of potassium. They are good for asthma, digestion, cleansing and energizing
- Lime: Good for aches and pains as well as cleansing the system – the acid scours the intestinal tract; eliminating toxins; neutralizing harmful bacteria
- Celery: It contains the perfect balance of sodium and potassium which works like a natural electrolyte for pre and post workouts to prevent (reduce) achy muscles and replace lost salts. It also has a very alkalining effect on the system and because of this, it is very helpful for treating arthritis. Celery is a good natural source of sodium and potassium and is a great all round detoxifier and cleanser – and does wonders for your skin.
Celery is very alkalining in the body, which is important in prevention of almost all diseases as well as for general aches and pains. It is also a natural diuretic and can reduce fluid retention, which is the reason why its helpful for reducing high blood pressure.
- Ginger: As well as being a natural anti-histamine, anti-septic, anti-viral and anti-inflamatory, ginger is also well renowned for soothing the stomach and helping to relieve nausea.
FYI – this juice is best served straight away as it’ll seperate and look like bog water if you leave it! All it takes is a quick stir to get it looking back to its usual lovely green state, but it might put you off a bit!
