Sunshine In A Glass
I don't know about you, but as soon as August hits, I begin to feel a little blue about summer coming to an end. Eating a plant-based diet can greatly improve our health and elevate our mood, especially when we eat (and drink) the rainbow!
This juice recipe is literally sunshine in a glass that you can enjoy anytime you need some extra light in your life! And on that note, it will make you feel lighter!
The Juice Is Ideal For:
- Fighting inflammation
- Improved digestion
- Beating belly bloat
- Detoxing heavy metals
- Boosting the immune system
- Giving your skin a healthy glow
- Energizing + invigorating
Lighten Up & Loosen Up
Thanks to a healthy dose of ginger root and a touch of celery, this juice is fantastic for digestion, which equates to reduced belly bloating and regular elimination.
This juice also boasts a bounty of anti-inflammatory benefits, due to the powerful effects of turmeric root, and the curcumin it contains. Pineapple is another commonly overlooked anti-inflammatory that contains a potent enzyme called bromelain, that's great for muscle recovery and repair.
Another overlooked fruit with powerful benefits when juiced in the Granny Smith apple. This variety is desirable for juicing, because the more tart the apple, the more malic acid it contains. Malic acid stimulates the metabolism and also helps to detox heavy metals from the body.
On top of the anti-bloating and anti-inflammatory benefits, this Liquid Gold juice also contains a whopping dose of Vitamin C to keep your skin and immune system in check. Thank you, citrus!

raw vegan, gluten-free, oil-free, low-fat, energizing + rainbow-licious
time: 10 min // serves: 1-2
- 8-12oz fresh-squeezed orange juice (about 5 oranges)
- 2 stalks of celery
- 2 Granny Smith apples
- 2-3 cups pineapple
- 1 large knob of ginger
- 1 chunk of turmeric
- Juice oranges using a citrus juicer and set aside.
- Cut other ingredients into chunks and place into juicer. Start with ginger and turmeric root so the juicier ingredients will flush them through completely.
- Pour juice from juicer plus orange juice into fine mesh strainer to eliminate any extra pulp, for an extra smooth and sweet finished product.
- If you do not own a juicer, you can also blend all ingredients and strain with a fine mesh strainer.
- Will last in refrigerator for 24-48 hours in an airtight container, but tastiest and most nutritious when fresh.

The Juice Is Worth The Squeeze
If you're looking to amp up your health, juicing is a great way to go! There are tons of juicers of varying price ranges on the market, but the quality of your juicer directly impacts the quality and nutritional value of your juice!
An investment in quality is an investment in your health and happiness!
My new Omega NC900 has definitely made the juice worth the squeeze! This super quiet motor, slow masticating, dual-stage extraction juicer comes with adjustable settings depending on what type of recipe you're making. Due to these features, you'll get maximum extraction, it will not damage your produce via grinding and gnashing, and it reduces oxidation, significantly! All of this jargon essentially means you'll get more juice for your squeeze, and it'll be less bubbly, more nutrient dense, and more flavorful!
You can use this juicer for:
- Fruits & veggies
- Nut milks
- Nut butters
- and even Baby food! (good news for me)! ;)
