Healthy Juice Recipe

I received a gift from a client a couple of weeks ago and I thought it was wonderful. I’m always making fruit shakes and things like that so it was a very thoughtful gift. It was a little book by Tarla Dalal called Health Juices for Daily Use.  The book has tons of recipes for healthy juices that you can either make with a blender or a juicer. I’m used to making juices with my blender so I was going to make an attempt at a few of the juices using the blender until just a few days ago another client brought a juicer that she no longer had use for as she would be moving back to the United States. The timing couldn’t be any more impeccable.  So I popped open the book and found a recipe in the section titled Cleansing Juices and found an interesting one called Minty Morning.

This juice is quite simple and only contains two ingredients; oranges and mint leaves. Dalal’s book says that…

“Oranges boost overall resistance and also stimulate the salivary glands thus aiding digestion. Mint on the other hand is rich in iron and vitamin C. It is also the best digestive and cooling herb. By combining the health-giving properties of oranges with mint;  this juice makes for a powerful cleanser”

Check out the recipe.

Ingredients

4 medium sized oranges, peeled and separated into segments

8-10 sprigs of mint with leaves roughly chopped
