Juices To Flatten Your Belly, Cleanse And Fight Infection
The Belly Flattener
Juicy secret: Mint stimulates saliva production, which aids digestion. Handy when it has the roughage of the beetroot and carrots to deal with. Mojito, anyone? Just kidding…
– 4 carrots
– 1 bunch beetroot
– 1 apple
– 2 small cucumbers
– Small knob ginger
– Handful of mint
– Juice of 1 lemon 250ml water
Roughly chop the veg and apple. Blend together all ingredients and drink immediately.
Juicy secret: Cucumber is a natural diuretic, speeding up your body’s cleansing process. Natural oils in the skin also nourish and strengthen your hair, nails and skin.
– 2 cucumbers
– 1 apple
– Handful Swiss chard
– 3 mint leaves
– 200g alfalfa sprouts
– 200ml filtered water
– 1 tsp chia seeds
Whizz up the cucumber and apple first, then add the rest. Use the smaller leaves from the chard – they’re less bitter.
Juicy secret: Lauric acid in coconuts is a natural antibiotic, which can help to fight bad bacteria. It’s also rich in caprylic acid, a potent antifungal that combats thrush and eczema. Who knew?
– 1 coconut
– 250ml coconut or filtered water
– 1 tbsp sugar-free almond butter
– 1 tsp raw cacao powder
– 1 tsp maca powder
Crack open the coconut and scrape out the insides into the blender. Add the rest and blend together. Way better than a chocolate brownie. For your body, that is…
