Join the Juicing Brigade with these Home Recipes

Written By My Farm Fresh Box

Spring has sprung here in the UK and thoughts are turning to long sunny weekends, days out in the countryside and getting fit and healthy in time for summer.  This change in the weather brings a change in meals, with winter warmers such as casseroles and soups giving way to lighter snacks and drinks such as juices and smoothies.

Juices are a popular way to tuck in to those healthy vitamins and minerals that fruit and vegetables provide us with and the key to a good juice is using the freshest ingredients you can get. We take a look at some home juicing recipes you can enjoy using the tasty contents of one of our fresh fruit and veg boxes.

Farm Fresh 'Green Goodness'

Fresh green smoothies from your Farm Fresh Delivery

  • Kale
  • Green Grapes (25-30)
  • Cucumber
  • Granny Smith Apple

Packed full of vitamin K for healthy blood and bones, and plenty of iron, this simple recipe couldn't be easier. Take a handful of Kale, core and cut the apple, slice the cucumber and then add to a blender with  25-30 grapes. Whizz until smooth and enjoy!

TIP: If your drink is bit too thick, thin it out a little with some ice to water it down whilst maintaining the freshness.

Beetroot & Kale

Fresh Kale is great in a smoothie

  • Kale
  • Tops from 2 fennel bulbs
  • Beetroot
  • Small cucumbers (5)
  • ½ lemon

Mixing up some sweet tasting fennel with a kale and beetroot smoothie helps to undercut some of the harshness of beetroot. The cucumber meanwhile acts as additional water in order to thin out the mixture so it's perfect for drinking. Just pop all of the ingredients in a blender for a refreshing and healthy juice.
 

Immunity-boosting Vitamin Juice

Grapefruit Delivery

  • grapefruit
  • oranges (2)
  • kiwi

The worst of the winter cold season may be behind us, but the changing of the seasons can often bring out a cold just when you think you are clear of it! This vitamin-packed juice will therefore help to ward off those bugs, and provide a tasty treat at the same time. Peel and cut the grapefruit, cut the kiwi into wedges and juice!

Best of the Bunch

Pineapple Smoothie - Fruit Box Delivery

  • Beetroot
  • Red Cabbage
  • Carrots (3)
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • Orange
  • 1/4 Pineapple
  • Spinach

It is true that variety is the spice of life and you would be hard-pushed to get more varied than the fruits and vegetables in this juice recipe. Beetroot gives this drink its rich red appearance, while the carrot and pineapple sweetens it up just enough for you to forget that this is a super-healthy drink!

Refreshingly Simple

Fresh Cucumber Juice - Veg Box

  • 8 celery stalks
  • 2 medium cucumbers or equivalent
  • ½ bunch parsley
  • 1 small lemon

At My Farm Fresh Box, we like to keep it simple, as it's what nature does best! So this simple and refreshing juice will be a breeze. Take 8 stalks of celery, one large cucumber, a handful of parsley and blitz with the juice of one lemon.

Protein Punch

Almonds and Vegetable Smoothie

  • Oranges
  • Almonds
  • Sweet potato
  • Apple

This one really does mix things up - combining both fruit and veg, as well as nuts. It's reasons like this that our mixed fruit and veg boxes exist! Protein, from almonds, is great for helping to build and repair muscles and will come in handy after a brisk Spring walk.

Sweet Beets

Fresh Beetroot Smoothie - Veg Box Delivery

  • Beetroot
  • Carrots (10)
  • Sweet Potato

This recipe can almost be substituted for lunch thanks to its satiating ingredients and slightly thicker texture. It is packed full of nutrients including vitamin C. Beetroot has also been known to help lower blood pressure, so this drink is great for your heart as well as your taste buds.

Our mixed boxes of fruit and vegetables are perfect if you are looking for a variety of ingredients to blend into a juice or smoothie. We always pick the freshest in season product to ensure you get all of the nutrients available.

If you have a particular recipe in mind, you are free to choose your own box contents too - just take a look at the produce on offer and let us know what you'd prefer to get delivered direct to your door!
