Some recipes are good for the body. Some are good for the soul. Some satisfy on every level and this is one of those juices! It’s a little different to my regular juices because – hey it has a name! Ha! My juices are usually called Green Juice Day 1 for example (from my Raw7 Juicing & Raw foods for Weight Loss 7-Day Plan).
But some juices deserve more and this is one of those juices!
The recipe calls for fresh aloe vera – but if you don’t have any don’t fret too much. You can buy jellied Aloe Vera (yes, yes, yes I know it’s not raw but come on we don’t ALL have access to fresh aloe all the time, hey!) which you can soak in water to get rid of the sugar coating. It’s a good enough substitute until you can get your hands on the real thing.
Another reason why this rainbow juice is the business is because it’s a juice that can help you use up all the bits and bobs in the fridge – especially those veggies that are on their way to being a little tired – and sweeten the blow with the aloe. This juice looks red and sweet (it’s totes delicious! but is also a feast of veggies!)
The ingredients don’t have real measures as I made up a jug of 24 portions for this one but that doesn’t really matter to be honest – use what you have in measures to satisfy your own palette. Juice up and drop in a piece of aloe to create a tasty, gourmet, juicy splash!
- Beetroot (half)
- Apple (as much as you like 1-2)
- Celery (2-3 stems)
- Red Pepper (one)
- Red Cabbage (lots of)
- Watercress (just a fistful)
- Spinach (handful)
- Turmeric root (small nib)
- Radish (just a few)
Serve with Aloe Vera.
Simply juice using your Tribest Slow Star or other juicer of your choice and serve with a slice of Aloe Vera. Boom.
Keeping it juicy & raw
