This juice recipe is a bit different today, because it wasn’t made by me, but my good friend Matt. Check out my interview with him on his 10 day juice fast, support from me, boxing and how he found 10 days of juicing (he had never doing a juice fast before). Also we both have very different cool accents, as mine is antipodean and his is northern, so you might like that too. Anywho in the clip we talk about a juice that I was going to share a recipe for and that Matt and I found helped with breaking up the green juices. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE my green juices, but after day 8 or so you need some others added in there for variety. If you follow me on Facebook I’m always posting other recipes and ideas with colour, because not only is it good to eat a plate that looks like a rainbow, but it’s also good to drink the colours of the rainbow too!
Carrot’s and sweet potato are such a good combo together as the carrot’s give the juice a sweetness and the sweet potato gives it an earthy flavour and combining both provides you with lots of beta-carotene. Beta-carotene breaks down into two vitamin A molecules, which your body uses to maintain healthy kidneys, as well as boost your immune system and tissues within your eyes. Pretty awesome eh? I really enjoyed the Magic Matt Juice and was so impressed and I’m thankful for my friend sharing, so now time to share it with YOU!
- 1 x tomatoes
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1x sweet potato
- 3x carrots
- 1x red/green pepper
- handful of grapes
- hugs and happy thoughts towards a good friend
Depending on how much you like tomato you can add more and the same goes cayenne pepper (I like my spicy and to get my metabolism working). If you like it a bit sweeter add more grapes and carrot, like any juice experiment with what works best for your tastebuds and above all have fun!
