Juicing with herbs - a must try

Hi friends

When you think of culinary herbs such as parsley and dill, thoughts usually lean towards savory dinners. But what about using them in your juice recipes? Many fresh herbs can be paired with fresh summer fruits and veggies creating flavor combinations that will elevate your tired old juicing routine to an event worthy of cocktail hours

In addition to the amazing taste, herbs can add a whole lot of nutrients to your favorite juices. Most herbs contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals in addition to the unique phytonutrients that provide powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Besides, it's summer so take advantage of all those fabulous little green bundles.

Add fresh, washed produce in the order listed to your juicer and enjoy. Each recipe makes approximately four servings.

Basil

Possibly one of the most revered herbs around the world, basil brings a delicious freshness to everything, and when combined with strawberries and peaches, it is pure heaven. The flavor of this classic herb brings out the delicious sweetness of the fruit and is sure to put a smile on your face long after the summer produce is gone. Oh, and by the way, it is an excellent anti-inflammatory and is great for the heart too.

3 large peaches, halved and pitted

½ bunch fresh basil

10 strawberries, hulled

2  honeycrisp apples

Parsley

One of the most common herbs, is also one of the most nutrient dense. A daily dose of parsley offers a powerful combination of B vitamins and more vitamin C by weight than oranges. It improves digestion, freshens breath and relieves inflammation. This is the perfect accompaniment at lunch or as an after-dinner cocktail.

4 medium carrots

½ bunch fresh parsley

1 inch piece of ginger

Mint

When you’re looking for a little refreshment on a hot summer day, reach for mint. The uplifting, sweet aroma instantly improves your mood, while soothing an upset stomach, or calming down an irritable digestive tract. Enjoy over ice in the afternoon or before dinner.

3 medium pears

1 bunch fresh mint

6 medium plums, pitted

2 granny smith apples

Coriander

 

This herb often sparks a strong reaction - you either love it or leave it. But when you combine it with fresh mango and cantaloupe in your juicer, there will be no leftovers. An unusual combination that also enhances your body’s ability to release toxins, this is the perfect recipe to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

So, you’ve heard about the health benefits of beets, but aren’t sure of the flavor. Don’t fret, the delicate hint of anise found in dill is just the thing to balance out the hearty earth tones of beets. This recipe offers not only a healthy dose of immune-boosting nutrients, but also helps you to fuel up before a fun-filled summer day.
