I have made & lot of shakes lately to start my day. I eat them after my cardio & full body work out. I also made a few home-made juices. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do.
First, 2 lovely home-pressed juices of mine that are my favourite of this moment.
A tasty beetroot & ginger juice!
A tasty cucumber, spinach & green celery juice!
Beetroot & ginger juice: ( serves 1 big glass )
2 large red beets, peeled & cut into chunks
1 piece of fresh ginger, about 2.5 cm long & 1.5 cm thick, peeled & cut into chunks
1. Take your juicer & place the vegetable presser in. Place the red beetroot chunks in it, place a big glass under the opening where the juice comes out & press until all the beetroot chunks are juiced all the way through.
2. Afterwards, place the ginger pieces in the juicer & press until the juice has come out, all the way. Mix the juices with a spoon so that the juices are well mixed into the glass.
3. Serve instantly & enjoy!
Cucumber, celery & spinach juice: ( Serves 2 glasses )
2 green celery, cleaned & cut into larger pieces
2 cucumber, cleaned & deseeded, cut into larger pieces
about 300 gr fresh washed & cleaned spinach leaves, spun dry

2. Place each ingredient, piece after piece, into the juicer. Juice until all pieces are used up.
