How to Make Energy Boosting Soul Juice


This ''Soul Juice''* tastes amazingly refreshing and is filled with energy boosting vitamins to start the day. A 500 ml glass keeps hunger at bay. For me it took about 3 hours to sustain hunger with no strenuous exercise.   I would probably drink the 1 litre if I did decide to do a workout. 

It is best to make this juice the same day you want to drink it, otherwise the juice starts to oxidise and looses its greenness and vitamins content. 

To Make This Soul Juice You Will Need


To make 1 Litre of Soul Juice

A whole cucumber

5 celery stalks

5 Pink Lady apples

2 lemons (juice only)

Curly lettuce 1/2 a head

Juicer - I use Jack La Lanne's Power Juicer

Strainer



1. Chop up all of the ingredients and juice them up in your juicer. With the lemons, I squeeze the lemon juice into a glass and remove pips before pouring the lemon juice into the juicer.

2&3.  My juice has a built in strainer to remove most of the pulp, but some pulp may still remain. I double strain my soul juice to remove excess pulp which makes the juice smooth.

When it's juicing it smells so fresh - I think it is the celery. I have never had such a  love for an abnormally green juice before. The ingredients used aren't too expensive (around £6.00), but ultimately, there is no price  for good health and providing your body with nutrients. 

Nutrient Facts

1.  Cucumbers contain essential every day vitamins. A whole cucumber provides B vitamins (this is where the energetic boost comes from!), folic acid (good if you are pregnant), vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorous, Potassium and Zinc. 

2. Not that you would use it specifically as this (or maybe you would...who's to know!), but celery is an aphrodisiac and contains B vitamins (extra energy boost), Vitamin C, vitamin K and Vitamin A. 

*I originally took this recipe from a raw diet blogger but I have amended it to my own preferences. 

Will you be starting your weekend with a Soul Juice? I would love to hear how you found it!

  2. This looks amazing, but I have one problem - I *hate* celery with a passion! Wonder if I could substitute the celery, or does the overall taste blend it out?
    I love smoothies though, especially healthy ones like this.

    1. It does taste pretty strongly of celery. Maybe you could add only a couple of celery sticks and more apples and lettuce? Or you could put in some carrots or some pears? The pears would make it very sweet with the apples though!
