Reddy Set Go Juice Recipe

by | Jun 12, 2024 | Breakfast Juice

Description

Nothing beats a fresh watermelon and apple juice to get your day under way.

I named this one Reddy Set Go as the red colour will get you fired up in the morning along with a hint of spice from the ginger.

This juice is not only delicious but also packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, making it a perfect refreshing drink for any time of the day.

Happy Juicing!

Taste

Sweet and refreshing with a hint of citrusy tang and a subtle spicy undertone from the ginger.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 watermelon
  • 2 red apples
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 piece ginger, 2cm

Juicing Time: 3 mins
Juice Qty: 1000ml
Serves:  4

Preparation

Watermelon

  • Thinly slice the outer green skin leaving most of the white flesh intact (you can leave the skin on if you wish, it will change the colour and taste)
  • Cut the melon into slices about two fingers wide
  • Cut the slices in long strips about three fingers wide

Apples

  • Remove the stems and remove any stickers
  • Juice apples whole with skin and seeds.
  • Cut in half or quarters if too big to fit into the wide chute

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

If you like ginger then start with the cap closed.

Juice one apple, followed by the ginger and then the second apple. Allow the ginger and the apple to mix well before releasing the cap.

Juice the watermelon strips followed by the lemon.

 

Tip: watermelon works like a miracle on first, second and third degree burns. Eat it, drink it or soak the burn in it!

 

AUTO10 Layering: ginger, watermelon, lemon, apple

Health Benefits

Watermelon

Watermelon is an excellent fruit for juicing and good for your “melon” (aka head) because it is 93% water that is full of electrolytes and can help hydrate the brain.

Watermelon also cools the body, cleanses the kidneys, and has been shown to purify the skin, promote shiny hair and strong nails.

Watermelon has high levels of lycopene, the bright red carotene that is a powerful antioxidant to neutralise free radicals. It is also high in citrulline and arginine, amino acids that may help lower the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and may also help in preventing prostate cancer.

Watermelon is also known to significantly reduce inflammation, help flush out edema, aid in weight loss, and alleviate depression.

The skin of the watermelon is equally beneficial to juice as it is one of the highest organic sodium foods in nature and one of the best sources of chlorophyll.

Apple

Apples are the "Queen of the Fruits". The old saying "an apple a day..." is truly ancient wisdom as they protect and heal every human body system and cell. Apples are a true healing food.

Nutrition: Apples contain vitamins C and K, as well as potassium. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that supports the immune system, while vitamin K is important for blood clotting and bone health. Potassium is essential for heart health and muscle function. Apples are rich in antioxidants, including flavonoids and polyphenols. These compounds may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation.

All Systems: Apples also starve viruses. When their pectin fibers enter the digestive system, they release phytochemicals that bind onto viruses, shrouding viral cells so that they can’t feed and proliferate.

Cardiovascular / Circulatory System: Apples contain nutrients like vitamin C and potassium, which are important for heart health. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that supports the immune system, while potassium helps regulate blood pressure. Some research suggests that eating apples may be associated with a reduced risk of stroke, possibly due to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Some research suggests that eating apples may be associated with a reduced risk of stroke, possibly due to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

Digestive System: Apples are high in a soluble fibre (still in the juice) called pectin that forms a gel-like substance in the intestine. This gel can bind to cholesterol, removing it from the body, which may aid in reducing blood pressure levels. Apple juice provides living water to support the liver’s hydration capabilities, so it can store the water and then release it back into the bloodstream when the blood becomes dehydrated and isn’t flowing very well.

Nervous System: They are also high in malic acid that binds with any heavy metals in the brain. The word 'malic' comes from the Latin word 'malum', meaning 'apple' which is why I recommend to people who have brain or neurological symptoms to consume more apples.

Lemon

Lemons are a must have ingredient in any juicing kitchen. They help make veggie juices taste better and help fruit juices last long when stored in the fridge. Lemons are rich in bioflavonoids which can significantly boost the immune system and reduce inflammation in the body. Lemon juice is known to be particularly beneficial for colds, coughs, and sore throats.

Lemons are not only a bright and tangy addition to dishes but also offer a range of health benefits. Here's why lemons are good for various systems in our body:

Nutrition: Lemons are low in calories but high in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage. They also contain citric acid, potassium, and other nutrients that support overall health.

Digestive System: The citric acid in lemons can help improve digestion by stimulating the production of stomach acid. This can aid in the digestion of food and prevent digestive issues like indigestion and bloating.

Immune System: Vitamin C is essential for a healthy immune system. Lemons are a great source of vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system and reduce the duration and severity of colds and flu. 

Detoxification: Lemons are often used in detox diets because they can help cleanse the body and promote the elimination of toxins. The citric acid in lemons helps stimulate the liver, which is the body's main detoxification organ. Lemons act as a cleanser and astringent; they squeeze toxins from the tissues and stimulate the liver to detoxify. Lemon juice is also beneficial for removing poisons in the form of old drug residues from the body.

Skin Health: The antioxidants in lemons, including vitamin C, can help reduce the signs of aging and improve skin health. Lemon juice can also be used topically to lighten dark spots and blemishes on the skin.

Hydration: Lemon water is a refreshing and hydrating beverage that can help keep you hydrated throughout the day. Staying hydrated is important for overall health and can help improve energy levels and mood.

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.
