Full of beta carotene, carrots are a great base. Then add sweetness with orange, and a spicy kick with ginger and turmeric, which are both antioxidants and have natural anti-inflammatory properties. You could also try a few pieces of raw sweet potato! Not the first thing that comes to mind for juicing, but it’s loaded with Vitamin C and B6, and is delicious with cinnamon and pear.
A tropical treat on a cold winter day, pineapple, mango, and banana is a delicious escape. The immune-boosting blend is also great if you’re feeling a bit under the weather. Add extra nutrients (and temper the sweetness) by adding a touch of lemon and ginger.
Dark leafy greens are full of nutrients, so start with any combination of kale, spinach, and lettuce, then add some celery and cucumber for hydration. If you want a little sweetness, top it off with green apple, kiwi, banana, or pineapple.
