I’ve already talked about my love for green smoothies, and how they can help you lose weight, but there are juicing recipes out there that are just as beneficial. They can help you bust belly fat, detox your body, and cleanse your system, plus they’re tasty as can be with all-natural fruits and veggies. So if smoothies aren’t really your thing, or you’re craving a change, juicing is the way to go!
My dad hopped on the juicing train way before it was ever a “thing.” When I was little he would make juices in his juicer all the time, my favourite being an orange, carrot, ginger medley of some sort. But I wasn’t convinced. At such a young age, I didn’t realize all of the nutritious benefits that those homemade juices could have, and would often opt for store-bought juice, that of course is full of sugar. Kids, right?
Now I praise my dad and his health-nut, juicing ways. Homemade juices are a great way to get the nutrients and vitamins your body craves and needs to function. It’s not always easy to get the recommended dose of fruits and veggies on the daily, but juicing recipes make it simple and fun.
Plus, as we head into summer, you may have your bikini body on your mind. With a healthy diet and regular exercise, these delicious juicing recipes are sure to help you lose weight and look amazing from the gym to the beach and everywhere in between.
You can really add just about anything to your juice. Everyone has different taste buds and enjoys different fruits and vegetables, which makes juicing personal! If you’d rather have some direction and suggestions, I’ve rounded up 12 amazing juicing recipes for weight loss, and I highly recommend you watch Joe Cross’ documentary, Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead and buy his book The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet: Lose Weight, Get Healthy and Feel Amazing.
Bring it, summer!

2. Hot Pink Beautifying Juice (Vegannie)
With metabolism-boosting lemon, not only is this juice great for weight loss, it’s also amazing for your skin.
