Workout Juice Recipe
This juice combination is the perfect balance of sodium and potassium to help prevent the build-up of lactic acid and cramps after a good workout, as well as replacing natural salts lost from sweating.
The taste is sour, slightly sweet and salty, one of my favorite juices.
- 1 cucumber
- 4 green apples
- 3 celery stalks
- 1/2 lemon
Juicing Time: 2 mins
Juice Qty: 900 ml
- Cut in half or chunks to fit down the chute
- Juice with skin on
- 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.
- Chop into small pieces (5cm) across the stalks to cut the long stringy fibre
- You can juice the leaves if you like the bitter taste otherwise discard
- 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.
An easy juice to make in any order or combination.
I started with cucumber as it is the softest ingredient then I added the celery one handful at a time.
Next I juiced the whole apples and finished with the lemon slices.
Tip: this combination is also good for arthritis sufferers as it helps reduce acidity in the body. The juice will stay fresh for 3-4 days so make up a big batch!

Cucumbers contain a high quantity of silica which is the mineral responsible for strengthening the connective tissue which holds the body together including bones, tendons, ligaments, muscle and cartilage.
Cucumber also contains erepsis, a digestive enzyme that breaks down protein and cleanses the intestines. This property makes cucumbers excellent for weight loss and also enables them to destroy worms, especially tapeworms.
Celery is very alkalising in the body, which is extremely important after a good workout to help flush lactic acid from the body. It also helps flush excessive carbon dioxide.
Lemons are high in potassium to help control blood pressure as well as nourishing the brain and nerve cells. Potassium is essential for the body’s growth, maintenance and energy production.
