Healthy Juices; Orange, Yellow and Green

So I thought I’d do a different kind of blogpost today as different is good, right? I think everybody is trying to eat healthier especially as summer is here (however the weather doesn’t indicate that) which means beach bodies. Juices are super healthy and actually super tasty too. They can be a great alternative to sugary foods as juices with lots of fruit in are naturally sweet. I have the cookworks whole fruit juicer which I bought just before I started a juice detox. If you don’t know what a juice detox is then it’s basically replacing all solid food with juices. I did this for 3 days, having 5 juices a day alongside coconut water. After completing the detox I felt amazing so I wanted to keep juices in my life on a regular basis. I’ve chosen my favourite orange, yellow and green juice to show you.  
Apple, Pear and Carrot Juice – Orange;

For this juice you will need;

  • 2 red apples
  • 2 pears
  • 1 carrot (I only had miniature ones so I used 3 of them)


This is the perfect juice for breakfast as it’s sweet from the fruit but not too sugary for the start of the day.

It’s pretty self explanatory what you do, simply chop up your ingredients and juice them!


Pineapple, Pepper, Lemon and Ginger Juice – Yellow;

For this juice you will need;

  • 1/2 pineapple
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 lemon
  • Ginger (As much as you want really, it just depends on how strong you want your ginger flavour)   

This is the perfect pick me up juice in the afternoon when you start to lag as it’s sweet and zingy so refreshes you.

Again, you just chop your ingredients up and juice them! Make sure you take the peel off the lemon though as the juice from the lemon peel is bitter!
















Cucumber, Apple, Kale and Parsley Juice – Green;

For this juice you will need;

  • 2 cucumbers
  • 2 green apples
  • Small handful of kale
  • Couple of sprigs of parsley
This is the perfect juice to accompany a meal as it is nutritious and tastes more savoury than the other juices.




You don’t have to peel any of these so you just chop them up and chuck them in the juicer!

These recipes are just rough guidelines and the quantities don’t really matter, you’ll just end up with a different but equally as yummy juice.

Let me know if you’ve tried juicing and if so did you like it? What are your favourite juice recipes, please share them!
