I love juices and smoothies. They’re my preferred way of getting nutritious things into my body when I am too lazy to cook or chew food – which is pretty often. I’ve been posting my favorite creations on Instagram lately with names such as Wolf’s Blood, Orange Goblin and Fight Fire with Fire Tea. If you follow me on there, you know that ginger is my main squeeze – I put it in everything. I have circulation problems, which the chromium, magnesium and zinc in ginger help to alleviate, and I am also old and my body is dying, so ginger’s anti-inflammatory benefits are a bonus, too. But mostly, I abuse ginger’s cold-and-flu-fighting power. As soon as I start to feel that “yuck” in my throat I start downing ginger and citrus at alarming rates. And guess what? It literally always works.
(Psss… I’ve also submitted this recipe to the Virtual Vegan Linky Potluck!)
Anyway, I’m always looking for new ways to squish, blend, and juice fruits, veggies and herbs so I’m super stoked that Emily von Euw, the raw foods wizard behind This Rawsome Vegan Life is coming out with a (un)cookbook that’s right up my alley: 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks: Easy Recipes For Natural Energy & Weight Control the Healthy Way.

Sweet Sunshine Juice
By November 26, 2014Published:
Ginger is an excellent blood cleanser, and pineapple and lemon work to alkalize your stomach, creating a happy habitat for digestion (a healthy gut = a healthy you). Finally, bell peppers carry a surprisingly high amount of vitamin C. All the ingredients combined create a vibrant, glowing yellow juice that will impress even the most skeptical folks. - Emily von Euw
- Wash, peel and chop the produce as needed, removing any seeds from the fruit. Put through your juicer and enjoy in the sun!
