8 Healthy Juice Recipes for Consecration – Use a combination of your favorite fruits to create your own customized juice blends.

When we think of fasting, we often don’t think of juicing or smoothies.    But juicing and smoothies are considered a “green meal” and can have many benefits.  Juices can be a great way to add nutrients to your diet and to easily absorb vitamins. 

For many, the idea of juicing vegetables may be a bit challenging, especially for beginners who are starting a consecration for the first time.  But with a simple blender or juicer and a few of your favorite fruits, you’ll find that adding fresh juices are an easy way to better health.  Certain elements like ginger and pineapple can reduce inflammation, and you can also add spices for added benefits and flavor.

Below we’ve listed 7 popular juice combinations and recipes that taste fresh and yummy but will offer you more nutrients and vitamins at consecration time: or any time of the year.  All of these ingredients can be found at your local grocery store or farmer’s market. Just have your juicer ready, toss in the ingredients, add a touch of ice, and you’re ready to go!
