Juice for beginners + Popeye spinach juice recipe

 photo img_9981.jpg

So last week I posted on instagram that I got this super cute pink box in the mail, it was a press package with Louisa Lorang’s new book `Juice for begyndere´ or in english `Juice for beginners´. In the box was also all the ingredients to make one of the super delicious (and good for you) juices from her book, the cutest paper straws and a gorgoues recipe card with the recipe for her `Skipper skræk` aka. `Popeye´ juice. I usually only rarely write about these things, but it was too cute and perfectly put together for me not to share. What I didn’t know was that a couple of hours after I posted the photo on instgram I received yet another package and this time it had a brand new Philips juicer (!!) in it – how crazy is that?! They did not only send me the first lovely package with the book and the ingredients, but also a juicer to make sure that I could actually use it. Definitely one of the best and most well thought through pr packages I have received.

I have been using both the book and the juicer for about a week now and I absolutely love both, so I thought I would do a little mini review + share the recipe for the Popeye juice.

First, let me start out with the book. I sadly only think it is available in Danish, so the review will probably only be relevant for some of you, but I will double check whether it might be made available in other languages as well.

The book contains 50 juice recipes and I absolutely love how the book is divided into three different sections, where the first part is dedicated to sweet and fruity (almost dessert like) juices for those who are not quite used to juicing yet, but also as a great alternative to soda or dessert. In the second part the recipes contains more greens and veggies, but are still quite sweet and suitable for those who wants to ease into juicing. The third part is dedicated to juice recipes that are jam-packed with greens and veggies and are probably more appealing to the more hardcore juicers. I absolutely love that the recipes are categorized like this because I think it makes it perfect for juice beginner to start with the first sweet and fruity section and then slowly start working towards the greenies in the third section of the book.

The book is full of super tasty and simple (but still very creative, I had never thought of adding soaked almonds or vanilla to my juices for example) recipes + the pictures are absolutely stunning, which to me is always super important – I need to feel inspired and I most certainly do when I look through this book. If you are considering to jump on the juice wagon, then I can definitely recommend that you try this book. It really is perfect for beginners as the tittle says, but also for someone like me who juices quite often, but usually aren’t super creative with my juice ingredients ;)

The juicer they sent me are this little beauty (you can also get it here) and while I haven’t had the opportunity to throughly test it yet, I can say that so far I am super happy with it! It quickly juices anything that I have thrown in it so far, also whole apples and lemons, and I find it fairly easy to clean. Haha I’m super lazy so I find all juicers to be a bit of a pain to clean, but this one is easier to clean than my old juicer, which is also from Philips (it is this model) and that one is supposed to be one of the easier ones to clean.

Golden beet juice

Golden

“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.”
– Anthony J. D’Angelo

The days are getting darker here and the sun has barely risen before it starts to disappear again, so I thought I would share this recipe for a little liquid sunshine with you lovelies. This golden beet juice is bursting with vitamin C, potassium and so much more goodness – perfect to help stay clear of catching the flu or a cold.

Simply juice 2 golden beets, 4 oranges, 1/2 lemon (peeled) and a thumb of ginger, enjoy!

Pomegranate orange juice

My juicer and I have a bit of a love/hate relationship. I absolutely love fresh juice, but I hate cleaning my juicer, as in I really hate it! Because of this I actually haven’t used my juicer in a while, but when I was grocery shopping the other day and saw that pomegranates are finally back in season I just knew that I had to start juicing again. Pomegranate is one of those super healthy fruits that I really want to love, but I simply cannot stand the texture of the seeds, so instead of eating them on their own I love adding them to my smoothies and juices.

Now, this is hardly a recipe since the only two ingredients are oranges and pomegranate, but I wanted to share it anyway since this is one of my favorite juice combinations – it is not only super tasty and gorgeous (I absolutely love the color), but it is also bursting with vitamin c and antioxidants.

Ingredients:
3 oranges
1 pomegranate
Icecubes

Directions:
Simply peel the oranges and pomegranate – I always peel the pomegranate in a big bowl of water to avoid the pomegranate juice spraying everywhere – and run them through a juicer, pour the juice into a glass and serve it with some ice cubes, enjoy!
