6 Juices That Are Great For You & Don’t Taste Like Shit!

I’m FourFiveSeconds from wildin’: the first day of Spring is next week and I’m beyond ecstatic. March is always a shitty month when it comes to weather—if you live in NYC like myself, you’ll understand the constant struggle of fluctuating weather patterns. So, in order to keep our bodies strong as we say #ByeFelicia to winter, here are some healthy and delicious (I promise!) natural juices to try out.

1. Fruity Punch With a Twist

What you’ll need:

Apples, kiwis, lemon and lime, peeled oranges, and pineapple



Benefits:


Kiwis play a big role in boosting our immune systems and fighting against runny noses. After I came across this recipe this winter on JuiceRecipes, a week didn’t go by where I wasn’t taking this to the head.

2. Immunity Booster

What you’ll need:


Blueberries, apple, beets, ginger, carrots, Vitamin C, Echinacea, B-Complex, and banana

Benefits:


If I’m not getting a Caribbean Coco smoothie to accompany my veggie roti, this is my favorite juice to cop at Melvin’s Juice Box. Echinacea, b-complex, and Vitamin C play important roles in making sure our bodies run smoothly. If you’re ever in NYC, take a trip to Houston Street and try one for yourself—Melvin never disappoints.

3. The Eye Opener

What you’ll need:


Apples, a bunch of carrots, and peeled oranges



Benefits:


Another goodie from JuiceRecipes, this cup of joy is helpful if you’re experiencing problems with digestion. What makes this juice so powerful are the carrots: they prevent dry skin and blemishes and improve eyesight. And ladies, when that time of the month rolls around, carrot juice is our best friend because it reduces water retention and bloating.

4. Don’t Forget Your Roots

What you’ll need:


Beets, lots and lots of carrots, and a sweet potato

Benefits: 


Originally, what drew me to checking this juice out was its name. Beets are very essential in cleaning our bodies, especially the liver and blood. Whether you consume them in a drink or eat them marinated, beets work wonders.

5. Old Fashioned Green Juice



What you’ll need:

Kale, celery, swiss chard, green apples, ginger, lemon, lime, and cucumbers



Benefits:


I don’t remember exactly where I found this recipe, but I’m glad I did. When I feel like crap, I form an assembly line and make arsenals of green juice-filled mason jars. Raw kale is high in protein, vitamins, and is only 33 calories. Yes, it’s a little bitter, but it’s worth it!

6. Neo Green Juice



What you’ll need:


Banana, kale, unfiltered apple juice, water, strawberries, pineapple, chia seeds, hemp seeds, (optional spirulina)

Benefits:


As you take your first sip, you’ll hear your insides saying, “Thank you for loving me!” A dear friend’s mother passed down this recipe to me of her take on green juice. The addition of chia seeds (with its omega-3, fiber, and antioxidants), hemp seeds (which contain essential amino acids and minerals), and spirulina (65% protein) gives this a powerful kick!
