In this blog post, I'll share my favorite juice recipe, inspired by the amazing juice I discovered at Playa Bowl. Join me as we delve into the goodness of green and recreate this nourishing blend right in your own home.

1. Green Juice Recipe Unveiled: The Playa Bowl Inspiration:

Take a trip down memory lane as I reminisce about the first sip of the green juice that captured my taste buds at Playa Bowl. Explore the unique combination of kale, pineapple, apple, celery, mint, and spinach that makes this juice a true source of vitality and refreshment. It is called ‘Mermaid Fuel’ for anyone who is actually close to a Playa Bowl. Every time I was near one, I always made sure to get it because it was that good. Their coffee is pretty amazing too! But since the moment I've had their juice, I've always wondered how could I make it myself!

2. The Power of Green Juice: Nutrient-Packed Ingredients:

Dive into the nutritional benefits of each ingredient in this powerhouse juice. From kale's superfood status to the digestion-aiding properties of celery, discover how this blend serves as a holistic source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The best part is that it doesn't taste bad at all. It is actually pretty sweet because of the fruits that are blended into it. I always wish I bought more when I have the chance to snag some. 

  • Kale's Superfood Status: Packed with vitamins A, C, and K, kale is a nutritional powerhouse that supports your immune system, skin health, and bone density. Its high fiber content aids digestion and promotes a feeling of fullness, making it an excellent addition to your wellness routine.
  • Celery's Digestive Aid: The inclusion of celery provides more than just a crunchy texture. Rich in antioxidants and boasting anti-inflammatory properties, celery supports digestion, reduces bloating, and contributes to overall gut health. It's a hydrating veggie that adds both flavor and wellness benefits to your juice.
  • Green Apples' Natural Sweetness: Beyond their delightful sweetness, green apples offer a wealth of antioxidants and dietary fiber. The natural sugars found in apples provide a clean energy boost, while the fiber aids in regulating blood sugar levels and promoting a healthy heart.
  • Pineapple's Tropical Twist: The vibrant flavor of pineapple isn't just for taste; it's a rich source of vitamin C, manganese, and digestive enzymes like bromelain. These elements support immune function, enhance skin health, and may even contribute to a more efficient metabolism.

What Juicer Should I Get?!

In my journey of embracing the vibrant world of juicing, I made a conscious investment in the Nama J2 juicer, a prized possession that exceeds $500. As a dedicated juicing enthusiast for the past three years, I recognize the value of quality in extracting the purest essence from fruits and vegetables. The Nama J2, with its advanced features and superior performance, has truly elevated my juicing experience. However, I understand that the world of juicers offers a variety of excellent options at more budget-friendly prices, especially on platforms like Amazon. For those who may not be ready to make a substantial investment, I encourage you to explore the plethora of affordable and efficient juicers available online – there's no shame in finding a juicing companion that fits both your lifestyle and budget. Happy juicing!

Sharing My Routine With You!

This is how I like to include juicing into my daily life: When I get up in the morning, 5 am ( I know, crazy!)I take juice out of the freezer for the day. All of my juices are done in large batches and put in containers to be frozen. I love the mason jars because they don’t hold scent, price friendly and they are glass. Anyway! Once I’m halfway through my day, my juice is usually defrosted and ready to drink. You can make the juice as you want it, but cleaning up all that equipment can be a hassle in the middle of your day. I work from home so if the urge strikes me, sometimes I do! If you don’t work from home, pre batching your juice and taking it on the go in a sturdy glass container!
