Description

Have you seen those ads on social media promoting “Drink this juice every day and lose weight?”

I’m sorry to disappoint you because losing weight is not as simple as drinking magic juice. It did, however, inspire me to create a juice recipe that is very low in calories (90kcal), high in water content, and stimulates your metabolism which is helpful for weight loss.

When you combine healthy eating and exercise with a daily fat-burning juice recipe like this one you tip the scales in your favour to achieve your healthy weight goal.

 

Happy Juicing!

Taste

Easy to drink, very light and soft on the pallette with a sweet veggie flavour and a spiciness from the ginger.

Ingredients

  • 1 cucumber
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 handful kale leaves
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 ginger piece, 5cm

Juicing Time: 2 mins
Juice Qty: 600 ml
Serves: 2

Preparation

Carrots

  • Cut carrots once lengthwise to release the core
  • Juice with skin on
  • Note: If larger carrots are used cut lengthwise again, into quarters
  • REVO830: no need to cut if they fit in the carrot chute
  • AUTO10: Cut into 2 or 3 pieces across the carrot to fit in the hopper

Cucumber

  • Cut into chunks to fit down the chute
  • Juice with skin on

Kale

  • Cut leaves away from the main stalk if you want less bitterness
  • Roughly chop the leaves

Lemon

  • Remove stickers and cut off any hard end points
  • Slice lemons into rounds with skin on to give more flavour and get more juice from each lemon.

Ginger

  • Wash and dry
  • Cut into thin pieces the size of your thumbnail leaving the skin on

Cold Press Juicing Method

Juice the Kale leaves first. Add the entire handful the wide chute.

Next add the carrots one half at a time. Go slow with carrots to let the juicer press each piece through before adding the next half.

Add the ginger followed by the cucumber chunks on piece at a time.

Finish making this juice recipe by adding the lemon slices at the end.

 

Tip: if you don’t like the strong aroma of kale in juice substitute with baby spinach

 

Health Benefits

Cucumber

Cucumber juice is highly alkalinizing and very hydrating. When your blood is well hydrated it can carry more oxygen which increases energy levels, kills bacteria and viruses and improves circulation.

Nutrition: Cucumbers are a good source of vitamins K and C, as well as minerals like potassium and magnesium. These nutrients are important for bone health, immune function, and heart health. Cucumbers contain antioxidants like beta-carotene, vitamin C, and flavonoids, which help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals and may reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

All Systems: Cucumbers can counteract toxins and lift depression; cleanse the blood; quench thirst, moisten the lungs, and purify the skin. They are also a good antidote for conjunctivitis, sore throat, acne, and inflamed skin diseases. Hence the saying, 'cool as a cucumber'.

Cardiovascular / Circulatory System: Cucumbers are a good source of potassium, which helps regulate blood pressure. A diet rich in potassium can help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. Cucumbers contain antioxidants like beta-carotene and flavonoids, which help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in the body, both of which are linked to heart disease.

Digestive System: Cucumber juice also cools most inflammatory or heat-related conditions, including stomach inflammation. The fiber in cucumbers acts as a prebiotic, feeding the beneficial bacteria in the gut. This can help maintain a healthy balance of gut bacteria, which is important for overall digestive health. Cucumbers are also allies to the liver due to their ability to hydrate it. Your liver’s always in need of living water that’s filled with minerals and other nutrients because your liver keeps your blood hydrated. It relies on sources such as cucumber for that living water.

Integumentary (Skin) System: Cucumbers contain silica, a compound that is important for healthy connective tissues, including skin, hair, and nails. Applying cucumber slices to the skin may also help soothe sunburns and reduce swelling.

Carrot

Carrots are well known in juicing circles as the anti-cancer kings of the vegetable world. They contain antioxidants including alpha-carotene, lutein, beta-carotene and lycopene to name a few. Beta-carotene is the main nutrients when it comes to its cancer preventing properties. The body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A. It is believed that beta-carotene can break down the protective mucous membrane around cancer cells.

Carrot juice is also an effective natural remedy for an ulcer in the stomach. When carrots are juiced, they’re higher in antiseptic phytochemical compounds that inhibit the growth of unfriendly microorganisms in the intestines.

Ginger

Ginger is one of the world’s oldest and most popular medicinal spices. It is known to greatly aid in digestion and assimilation and is widely regarded to help prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo.

Ginger is like every's favourite Auntie (anti). Anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-spasmodic, anti-nausea, anti-bacterial.

Ginger will support your overall immune system, so is great to use during the winter months, to help fight off colds. Gingerols in ginger cause a rapid and noticeable widening of the blood vessel walls and in turn helps to enhance circulation and also lower blood pressure.

Ginger also has its own signature variety of vitamin C and helps bring the body out of a reactive state when you’re sick.

Kale

Kale is among the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. The most beneficial component is its ability to relieve inflammation, thanks to its antioxidants and organic sulphur.

Nutrition: Kale contains isothiocyanates which have been shown to help protect the stomach from H. Pylori bacteria. A nutritionally packed leafy vegetable that contains incredible healing and rejuvenating properties. Kale is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, chlorophyll, amino acids, vitamins A, C, E, K, B-complex and minerals such as iron, magnesium, copper, and potassium.

Cardiovascular / Circulatory System: Kale is high in antioxidants like vitamin C, beta-carotene, and flavonoids. These antioxidants help reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, which are risk factors for cardiovascular disease. It is also rich in Potassium which is an essential mineral that helps regulate blood pressure and help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of stroke.

Muscular System: Kale is beneficial for the muscular system due to its high content of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It is particularly rich in vitamin K, which plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy bones and muscles. Vitamin K helps regulate calcium, which is essential for muscle contraction. Additionally, kale is a good source of iron, which is necessary for the production of hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to muscles. Including kale in your diet can help support muscle function, repair, and overall muscular health.

Nervous System: Kale also provides a good amount of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids in the form of alpha linolenic-acid (ALA), vital for good brain health.
