It’s officially the holiday season, and that means it’s time to start prepping your favorite dishes! You will be surprised at how easy it is to make your favourite juice recipe more festive (and tasty!). Here are 5 ways to make your healthy juices taste 10 times better.
Looking for a healthier substitute for those mint candy cane cravings? Adding some mint leaves (about 10-15 leaves per serving) while you juice are sure to add a tasty brightness that is sure to wake up all those holiday flavours! Not only that, mint leaves contain rosmarinic acid and menthol which both relieve gas and indigestion.
Perfect for: Sweet to mild fruit juices and after a heavy meal
Who doesn’t love some gingerbread? Throw in an inch or two of fresh ginger while juicing your favourite juice and top it off with some speculoos biscuit crumbs. Voila! You’ve gotten yourself a rich and hearty desert drink.
One of nature’s most powerful anti-inflammatory herbs, ginger is a great addition to any juice. Not only does it add a great spicy flavor, but also acts as an excellent digestive aid when juiced.
Perfect for: Sweet to mild fruit and vegetable juices
Nothing says Christmas quite as much as cinnamon. If you have a sweet tooth, one of our favorite secrets for extra deliciousness is to add cinnamon. You can either mix in some cinnamon powder into your juice or give it a light dusting. Either way, your juice has just turned into a $10 premium beverage.
Cinnamon also has natural anti-inflammatory properties and tastes amazing when paired with apples and carrots!
Perfect for: Sweet or earthy fruits and vegetables
Another Christmas classic. Not only are nutmegs delicious, but they also taste similar to cinnamon albeit more subtle and easier to pair with savoury notes. Nutmeg is a delicious spice that has anti-inflammatory properties, as well as helps you relax and unwind. In fact, nutmeg contains an alkaloid called myristicin that actually induces sleep. So what’s more relaxing than a warm cup of almond milk (that you can make with our juicers), sprinkled with a little nutmeg?
Perfect for: Plant milks and richer mild juices
It’s always fun to garnish our juices. This holiday season is a perfect opportunity to try out figs! The natural sweetness from figs means that they complement sharper flavour profiles from berries and lemons.
Not only are figs delicious, but they’re also an excellent source of fiber. This means that you can eat more figs without feeling guilty about exceeding your daily fiber intake.
Perfect for: Citrus and berry based juices
