Apple Ginger Delight: The Energy Drink That’s Good For You

My boyfriend Brooks is a great influence when it comes to eating clean. He’s always looking for tasty ways to incorporate our love to grub with our priority to stay healthy. Brooks created this delicious juice that I’ve been downing nonstop! I love the taste and the benefits – a total win-win! But enough from me… I’ll let him tell you about it himself:

Between Jules rehearsing 6 days a week for her MOVE tour and my staying in shape for next season, our schedules are pretty non-stop. Rehearsing and practicing for dance and hockey is a huge mental and physical demand on your mind and body each day. In order to be able to meet these energetic demands, we’ve started juicing before and after we go about our days.

To juice goes beyond buying a pre-made bottle of OJ. It’s a process of putting vegetables and fruits, often with their skins intact, into a juice machine and extracting the juice. The resulting juice is filled with an abundance of health-building elements — vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. You can juice almost any vegetable or fruit, and each is beneficial to your health in different ways. With a little research, I found a great recipe that kickstarts my and Jules’ days, and gives us an organic energy boost!

Try making this at home and you will feel like you have the energy of a kid on the playground!

Apple Ginger Delight:
• 1 green apple
• 3 carrots
• 2 celery sticks
• 1 lemon
• 1/2 inch ginger

Juice in any order. Give it a quick stir and drink it up!

For optimal absorption, drink the juice on an empty stomach and within 15 minutes of making it. After too long, the juice starts to oxidize and lose valuable nutrients and antioxidants. Cheers!

    Any suggestions for a good juicer?

    • Margaret Henderson

      I wanna know too!

      • Haili

        Hurom is one of the best. It’s very expensive though, retailing around $400. Initially, I would start with a lower end brand to make sure you like it and will stick with it. If you do, going with a more expensive juicer will actually save you money in the long run because it presses more juice out of each piece of fruit/vegetable. Your pulp will be much dryer and it’s actually very good for your dogs coats.

          cool thanks!!

    • Scott Woolsoncroft

      The hamilton beach or G&E big mouth is a nice juicer. $50 bucks at walmart

  • I really Love your blog!!!!!!

  • Margaret Henderson

    What kind of juicer do you guys have??

  • Maxdil

    Thanks for the recipe I’m goint to try it

  • Karen

    so the best kind of juicer is a cold pressed juicer (or a slow juicer). The juicers that are masticating, juice at higher speeds and add heat to your juice, thus killing off some of the good phytonutrients. Omega carries some great slow cold pressed juicers. My friend Julie Loveless (who is a plant based nutritionist and a breast cancer survivor) and I are writing a sexy cookbook all about eating a whole food plant based gluten free diet in order to increase libido and optimize your health.

    Cant wait to make this in my Nutri bullet will have toadd water though . It sounds yummy

    • Erika Yokoyama

      I use nutribullet too and love it. I prefer it over juicer since it keeps all the good fibers in but smooth enough to drink it. My favorite is mint, pineapple, kale, ginger, chia and coconut milk. My girls love organic frozen mixed berries, arugula mix, granola and apple juice.

  • Tricia

    I had an aloe, apple, ginger juice that was good for digestion. It’s delicious too!

  • Scott Woolsoncroft

    One of the best things for you,But only juice what you are gonna consume immediatly’ as the juice nutrients die quickly.Gerson institute cured terminally ill cancer patients with juicing & putting them in sunlight?

  • Ooo that sounds delicious! First, I need to get my hands on a juicer and then I want to try making this. 🙂

  • Jason Delpino

    Blending is better. You can try this 1 red apple 6 strawberries 10 blue berries 1 handful of kayle and half cup of water. Great for weight maintenance and energy

    • Margaret Henderson

      I like blending if I want a smoothie with yogurt or milk, but for just fruits and veggies I like the texture of juice better. I think it depends on whether or not little pieces of things or the thickness that comes with blending bothers you.

    • hotpepper5

      Or kale.
