Apple Juicer Recipes

Apples are a good source of important antioxidants like vitamins A, C and E. These three vitamins combined have a greater effect strengthening the immune system, than any one of them alone. Apples also contain other powerful antioxidants from a family of plant chemicals called flavonoids. In particular, apples contain flavonoids called quercetin, rutin and catechin. Research has shown that flavonoids have anti-inflammatory properties that can help lower the risk of developing heart disease and cancers and can also help with respiratory problems like asthma. One small study discovered that giving men and women 12oz of apple juice per day had beneficial effects on their cholesterol levels. The antioxidants in apple juice protected LDL "bad" cholesterol from oxidative effects of free radicals. Such oxidation damages LDL cholesterol creating atherosclerosis, a leading cause of heart disease.

Apple Juice Recipe
3 - 4 apples (green, red or a mix)

The only thing I remove from an apple before juicing is the stem. I juice the skin and the core because they contain many of the flavonoids. Juicing the skin will also provide fiber in the juice. This will provide a cloudy but exceptionally nutritious apple juice.

Cold Remedy
2 apples
1 lemon
1" slice of fresh ginger root

Juice the apples whole, only stem needs to be removed. Only juice the flesh of the lemon, not the rind. Juice the ginger root first followed by the apples and lemon. The high water volume of the lemons and apples will help flush more of the ginger juice into the glass. This drink is great warmed up with a little added honey on a cold night. Alternatively, it is also a refreshing drink served chilled on a hot day!

Orange Juicer Recipes

Not only a great source of vitamin C, orange juicer recipes also contain other important nutrients like vitamin A, folate, potassium and calcium. Oranges, like other citrus fruits, also contain the potent phytochemicals hesperidin and tangeritin. Both hesperidin and tangeritin have been shown to have anti-cancer properties, reduce cholesterol and have anti-inflammatory properties.

Plain Ole O.J
4 - 5 oranges

After you have peeled the oranges, I recommend scraping out some of the white pith from the inside of the peel. Juice the oranges with the pith. Hesperidin, tangeritin and many other flavonoids are found abundantly in the white pith. This applies to all citrus fruits.

Breakfast Citrus Blend
3 oranges
1 grapefruit

Tropical Delight
1 cup of pineapple
1 orange
1 small papaya
1 small guava
1 mango

Peel mango, guava, papaya and orange. Use only the flesh of the pineapple. Juice, stir well, enjoy!

Berry Juicer recipes

The Berry Juicer Smoothie
2 cup of strawberries
2 cups of blueberries
1 1/2 cups of raspberries

Wash berries, top the strawberries, juice, enjoy! This one is very tasty and is loaded with antioxidants such as anthocyanins and vitamin C.

The Black Kiwi
2 cups of blackberries
2 kiwis

Wash blackberries, peel kiwis and juice. I really like this combination. It is great for the immune system because kiwis and blackberries are both abundant in vitamins A, C and E. These vitamins can also protect us against atherosclerosis and heart disease.

A Touch of Strawberry
1 cup of blueberries
1/3 cup of strawberries
1 apple

Wash berries, top strawberries. I always juice the whole apple, core and skin. The flavonoids in apples are found in most abundance in the skin, and the core is also nutrient packed.

      I tried out "the berry juicer smoothie" recipe and it is delicious. Those berries together is a really nice mix. Although, this is not the cheapest of juices. All those berries add up.
