Quick Fresh Juice Recipes for a Quick

Juicing is an efficient way to gain energy while losing weight, to reach your daily intake of the recommended amount of fresh fruits and vegetables and to quickly absorb essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs to function optimally. So even if you're constantly busy with work, school or other daily demands, you can still achieve your ideal body through juicing.

All you need to get started is a good juicer and your favorite fresh fruits and vegetables and you're good to go!

Here are a few quick green juice recipes to help you get started with juicing:

Easy Greens

This delicious, low-calorie juice is an instant refresher that will help alleviate stress. It includes a cucumber which is made up of mostly water, making the juice hydrating and at the same time giving it a refreshing twist. Cucumbers are also natural diuretics which play a big role in eliminating harmful toxins that may get in the way of your health and weight loss.

Because of the cucumber and other healthy ingredients, this delicious juice is rich in protein, sodium, silicon and pectin (a compound known to contribute to weight loss).


1 cucumber

1 green apple

3 celery stalks

2 tbsp. vanilla protein powder

Ring My Bell Peppers

Red bell peppers are packed full of Vitamin C, twice the amount found in green bell peppers and a higher amount than oranges. They are also rich in carotenoids which contribute to skin health and swelling caused by arthritis. This juice helps protect the cardiovascular system and helps reduce the amount of bad cholesterol in the body, making it easier for the body to lose weight.

This nutritious, one-of-a-kind juice is definitely something to try if you want beautiful, glowing skin to go with your fit and healthy body.
