Having a bunch of fasting juice recipes ready when you’re about to go on your raw, healing juice fast can come in handy. Many use fasting as a tool to lose weight, and I don’t blame them. It often works a lot better than the majority of the diets out there.
Fasting not only cleanses your body internally, but it also detoxifies your body and increases your health tremendously.
If you want to get an extra boost out of your enema, it is usually recommended that you do a small enema before you start to clean out the old stuff.
When you’re juicing, you aren’t getting any fiber or solids into your stomach, so you have to get rid of the old somehow, right?
These recipes are the ones I use the most and they are very simple. I like keeping things simple and I am sure our bodies like that, too.
Healthy Recipe #1 – Orange and Carrot Blend
This is probably one of the juices I drink the most. Whenever I get cravings for something sweet I make one of these and it always satisfies my body.
All you have to do is grab as many oranges as you want and when you’ve juiced all of your oranges, add a few carrots. You can vary the amount of carrots you put in depending on what flavor you want.
I typically put in 2-3 medium sized carrots and that gives the orange flavor a nice boost.
Healthy Recipe #2 – Green Orange Mania
This is a recipe I make because I have to get some greens in my diet! Vegetables are very cleansing internally and they are like a retreat for your soul. So you need to get those greens in and this is my way of doing it.
You can take any vegetable, but let’s go with celery and kale. If you were to juice those two and drink it, it would taste pretty bad, and I don’t know, maybe some people like it, but I don’t!
Juice your greens and at the end add a few oranges and it will improve the taste tremendously and it will be a lot easier to drink. And best of all, your body will get the nutrients it needs.
Healthy Recipe #3 – Pineapple and Mango
Are you starting to notice that my fasting juice recipes tend to only contain two or three ingredients? I’m sorry, but that’s the way I have been doing things for a few years, and it works!
I like keeping things simple, but I by no means discourage your from trying your own recipes. Throw in whatever you want in your juicer and see how it tastes. That’s how you learn.
For your pineapple and mango fasting juice recipe all you have to do is peel your pineapple and mango, slice both into small chunks that fit into your juicer and juice away.
I sometimes like to include a carrot right at the end because my juicer can get clogged when I use squishy fruits like pineapples.
[Editor’s Note, Nathalie Says: I don’t recommend juicing fruit on a regular basis, or drinking lots of juiced fruit but if you do juice fruit keep to this rule: only juice fruit with other fruit, except apples, pears, and lemons/limes which can be juiced with veggies. Try to make the majority of your juice consist of vegetables, especially if you have sugar issues or suspect you’ve got a sweet tooth.]
Keep It Simple
Like I said, I like to keep my fasting juice recipes simple, because it means I have to use less brainpower to make them, and to clean everything when I’m all done.
There are tons of great juice recipe books out there, and I’m sure you can find more than plenty online as well, so don’t be shy to trying new things.
Best of luck with your juicing!
