Losing weight sits right at the top of many people’s priorities. Some weight loss methods actually work, others don’t, some are safe while others aren’t, some lead to muscle loss and so on. The pros and cons associated with the numerous solutions out there are just about endless. However, there is a healthy way to shed off the excess weight while at the same time keeping your body nourished with essential vitamins through consumption of fresh-made juice. Here are the top ten weight loss juices you can make right at home and at relatively low costs too.
1. Best Green Detox Juice
This is perhaps the best balance of fruits and vegetables in a juice and the apples make the juice sweeter and serve to cancel out the celery taste. You will require 2 green apples, a sprig of mint, a single piece fresh ginger, eight leaves of kale, 1 cucumber and three stalks celery. For the preparation of detox juices, each variant will use a similar preparation method that involves:
- Washing and drying all the ingredients
- Cutting the vegetables and fruits into quarter inch pieces
- Mixing all the ingredients prior to putting in the juicer
- Adding all the ingredients into the juicer and processing into juice (this should be done in line with the product usage instructions)
2. Apple Lemon Juice
This is perfect for a detox early in the morning and has a slightly tangy taste. The main benefit will be the anti-oxidants. The main ingredients are lemons (2 peeled), half a cup water, cucumbers and 3 apples. The preparation method is similar to the other detox juices.
3. Best Green Juice (For kids)
It is basically prepared for kids with several fruits to mask the taste of vegetables in the juice. The vegetables however do provide excellent sources of iron, folic acid, calcium and vitamins. You will require one large kale leaf, ¾ cup baby spinach, 1 green apple, 1 lemon and three peeled oranges.
4. Red zinger
This is another perfect-for-breakfast type of juice with an unrivalled nutritional profile. The juice has a sweet taste with a slight tangy taste from the lemon. The ingredient list is pretty simple with 2 beets, apples, carrots and lemons. Prepare using the earlier mentioned juicing method.
5. Spinach Lemonade
This juice contains high amounts of kale and thus has high level of nutrients and very low-calorie count. One can add two spoonfuls of honey if they prefer a sweeter taste. The ingredients include half cup baby spinach, 3 stalks of celery, a lemon (peeled), 1 apple and a clove of ginger.
6. Orange Dreamsicle
This is perhaps the most delicious of all weight-loss juices. Feel free to freeze the juice for an even better-tasting treat. You will require 2 apples, 2 stalks of celery, a medium sweet potato, 2 pears and 1 large orange (peeled). Prepare the juice as you would with any other juice (explained above).
7. Easy Start Juice
This juice is targeted at those starting out with detox juices due to its relatively simple ingredients with subtle flavors. Prepare the juice using 3 stalks celery, 3 carrots and 2 green apples.
8. Ginger ale
This is a great detox juice especially for those with stomach problems. The main spice in the juice is ginger which comes with the exceptional benefits of nausea prevention from a wide range of events. The ingredients are 4 apples, 3 stalks celery, cucumber, 1 cup baby spinach, 2 peeled limes and one ginger root (medium).
9. Green diuretic
Diuretics remove excess water from the body. This juice requires a few simple ingredients; 1 cucumber (main diuretic), 3 stalks celery (anti-inflammatory), 1 carrot, 2 apples and three spinach leaves. Prepare as explained above.
10. Apple Carrot Juice
As you have probably guessed, this one is really sweet and full of nutrients such as antioxidants and vitamins. Carrots are usually bursting with beta carotene goodness and potassium, very beneficial to the body. You will require a large apple, pineapple chunks (10 ounces), carrots (2) and ginger. Follow the above-mentioned preparation method.
