Berry Good Morning Juice Recipe

by | Nov 3, 2022 | Breakfast Juice

Description

What a perfect way to start the morning.

I love fresh fruit for breakfast and this juice recipe will put a smile on your face for the rest of the day and also give you plenty of energy.

If you don’t have fresh strawberries or blueberries, you can use thawed frozen berries instead (it is also a good cost effect way to buy them). 

I also recommend you remove the green tops from the strawberries before juicing them.

Taste

Sweet and tangy with a thick, and creamy texture almost like a smoothie.

Ingredients

  •  
    • 400g strawberries
    • 200g blueberries
    • 4 oranges

Juicing Time: 4 mins
Juice Qty: 1000 ml
Serves: 4

Preparation

Strawberry

  • Remove the green stems and leaves (they can be juiced but taste better when removed)
  • Juice whole

Blueberry

  • No preparation require
  • Juice whole

Oranges

  • Remove the orange skin leaving as much white pith as possible which contains many beneficial nutrients
  • Juice whole or cut in half if too big to fit into the wide chute

 

Method

I like to close the smart cap on the juicer before beginning this juice.

Start by adding the strawberries, then the blueberries and let the juicer blend them all together with the smart cap closed.

When mixed open the cap and release the juice into the juice jug.

Finish by juicing the oranges on at a time. Let the juicer run until all the pulp has been pushed through the juicer.

 

Tip: if you don’t have scales to measure the berries then use 1.5 punnets of strawberries (250g each) and 1.5 punnets of blueberries (125g each).

Health Benefits

Strawberry

Strawberries are a true superfood. They are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They rebuild, repair, and rejuvenate the body.

Nutrition: Loaded with Vitamin C they help to boost the immune system by warding off colds, flu, and respiratory infections. They are also loaded with antioxidants, such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid, and quercetin, which help protect the body against oxidative stress and inflammation. When strawberries are allowed to ripen on the plant, they are higher in vitamin C. They are also high in potassium, sodium, and iron.

Cardiovascular / Circulatory System: Strawberries can also help maintain a healthy heart rhythm and heart muscle strength. They contain ellagic acid and flavonoids which are good for cardiovascular health and can help prevent heart disease, stroke, and help to lower cholesterol.

Muscular System: Strawberries are beneficial for the muscular system due to their rich nutrient profile. They are a good source of vitamin C, which plays a crucial role in collagen synthesis. Collagen is a protein that provides structure to muscles, tendons, and ligaments, supporting their strength and integrity. Additionally, strawberries contain antioxidants like anthocyanins, which help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in muscles, promoting faster recovery after exercise. The combination of vitamin C and antioxidants in strawberries can help maintain healthy muscles and support overall muscular function, making them a delicious and nutritious choice for muscle health.

Nervous System: Strawberries contain vitamin C, which is important for brain health and the production of neurotransmitters. Vitamin C also acts as an antioxidant, protecting the brain from damage caused by free radicals.

Sensory System: Strawberries are also well known for being beneficial for age-related macular degeneration and vision-related issues.

Blueberries

The most intriguing health benefit of fresh blueberries is that they may actually reverse the loss of short-term memory that happens as we age.

They also act as an unusual type of pro-biotic by blocking the attachment of bacteria that cause urinary tract infections. They contain chemicals that curb diarrhea and also have viral activity and are high in natural
aspirin.

Anthocyanin is the pigment that makes the blueberries blue and is thought to be responsible for the major health benefit of preventing cancer.

Blueberries are believed to have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all common fruits and vegetables.

Orange

Oranges help quench your thirst and moisten your lungs, letting the energy flow freely in the chest. They also have a wide variety of phytonutrient compounds like anthocyanins, citrus flavanones, and various polyphenols. Oranges are not only a juicy and refreshing fruit but also offer a range of health benefits. Here's why oranges are good for various systems in our body:

Nutrition: Oranges are low in calories but high in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage. They also contain fiber, potassium, and other vitamins and minerals that support overall health.

Immune System: Vitamin C is essential for a healthy immune system. Oranges are a great source of vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system and reduce the risk of colds, flu, and other illnesses. Oranges destroy free radicals that cause signs of skin aging, scouring the intestine and flushing toxins from the body. Freshly squeezed orange juice is a predigested food. This allows for immediate absorption of all its abundant healing properties.

Digestive System: Oranges are a good source of fibre, which can help promote healthy digestion and prevent constipation. The fibre in oranges also helps support a healthy gut microbiome.

Cardiovascular/Circulatory System: Oranges are rich in antioxidants like flavonoids, which have been shown to help reduce inflammation and improve heart health. The potassium in oranges can also help regulate blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease.

Nervous System: Oranges contain vitamin B6, which is important for the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. These neurotransmitters play a role in mood regulation and can help reduce stress and anxiety.

Respiratory System: Oranges are rich in vitamin C, which can help support respiratory health. Vitamin C has been shown to reduce the severity and duration of respiratory infections like the common cold. Oranges are full of lung-friendly antioxidants and packed with vitamin C which is well known for fighting infection and inflammation.

Skin Health: The antioxidants in oranges, including vitamin C, can help reduce the signs of aging and improve skin health. Oranges can also be used topically to improve skin tone and texture.

Skeletal System: Oranges are a good source of calcium, which is important for maintaining strong and healthy bones. Calcium is essential for bone mineralization and can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

Eye Health: Oranges contain nutrients like vitamin A, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which are important for eye health. These nutrients can help reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.
