It’s about time for a green juice.

Let’s make a green juice today! I’m sharing a super easy recipe from Hälsokick with you.

Green balance:

1 handful each: spinach, mint, parsley

4 celery stalks 

1/2 cucumber

3 cm ginger

1 lemon

And here are some add-ons: 1 tsp maca, 1 tsp lucuma and 1 pinch pink salt… just for pimping a little bit. 

Run everything thru the juicer and stir in the add-ons. Cheers!

A recipe from Hälsokick!

Sharing another recipe from my book Hälsokick. Was thinking that maybe you needed something with ginger cuz it’s winter season.  You don’t have to use frozen mango if you don’t like it cold,  and don’t be shy with the ginger… it’s so good for you.

1 glass

Almost 2 cups mango, 1 inch (or more) fresh ginger, 1 cup almond mylk or more, 1 tsp raw honey, 1 tsp non alcohol vanilla extract. Blend until smooth and enjoy! Those raw honey jars you see on the left picture can be found at the Venice Farmers Market on fridays. Honey made from rescued bees.

A color splash from a farm box

A box full of fresh, crispy and organic produce landed on my doorstep today.  What a nice surprise! I’v been lacking a little lately with making my own juices, so i think it’s time to get some healthy homemade juice back into my system – thanks to all these delicious greens.

But first: let’s do a Red Velvet Smoothie. I used 1 small raw beet, 1/2 avocado, 1/2 cup frozen raspberries, 1 tbs raw cacao, 1/2 tbsp vanilla and a little more than 1 cup almond milk. Blend it and add more cacao and vanilla if you like. The rest of the beets are being shredded into a detox sallad together with the kale.

Feel like some it’s-good-for-you-carrot-juice? This one is from my book Hälsokick.  For one small bottleI: 5 farm carrots, 1 large apple and 2 cm fresh ginger, all from Melissa’s farm box. Run it thru the juicer and enjoy it cold.

Today’s greenie: 1 big leaf of curly kale, 1 broccoli flower ( not the whole head, only 1 flower ), 1 apple, 1 large cucumber, 1/2 lemon, a pinch of celtic sea salt and 2 tsp apple cider vinegar (or as much as you can bare). Cheers and drink up!

Thank you Melissa’s for the delicious “Green Juice Box”.  One great thing with Melissa’s is that they offer free delivery from San Diego up to Santa Barbara. And for 25 bucks you get about 7-10 of organic fruits and veggies. Nothing tastes better than eating local. Cheers!
