Here are 3 recipe ideas for delicious and nutritious breakfast juices. They will give you that much needed energy boost in the morning when you most need it.

1. Naturally Sweet Lemon Ginger Power Beet Juice

I’ve learned to really appreciate the flavors of beets and often try new juice and green smoothie recipes with beets as a key ingredient.

Beets are loaded with essential nutrients such as folate, potassium, iron and vitamin C, but most of all, they give you that instant energy boost. Which is why beetroot juice is my go-to drink before I do my workouts.

Beets have a naturally sweet and earthy taste that blends perfectly with the powerful flavors of lemon and ginger. The cucumber in this recipe at Inspired taste adds mineral-rich water, keeping the flavors well in place.

There really is no need to add more fruits to this recipe as the beets already bring in enough sweetness to your juice.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Medium-sized beets
  • 1 Medium-sized cucumber
  • 1 Small piece of fresh ginger (1 inch)
  • 1 Medium-sized lemon

2. The Ultimate Green Juice

It’s always tempting to throw sweet fruits in your juicer as we all love a delicious drink with lots of sweet, fruity flavors. But we shouldn’t ignore greens as they provide us with the most nutrients.

The trick is to get the balance right between flavor and nutrients.

I’ve tried it several times now and it’s amazing. The portion sizes in this recipe are big, so you can store the juice in your Refrigerator for a few days.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Bunches of (lacinato) kale
  • 2 Bunches of spinach
  • 5 Medium-sized cucumbers
  • 6-8 Green apples
  • 1/2 Bunch of celery
  • 1 Head romaine lettuce

3. Apple, Beetroot and Ginger Juice

The deep pink color of this energizing breakfast juice is to die for. Beetroot is certainly not the easiest ingredient to juice as it often requires a bit of manual work.

But the amazing health benefits of this red vegetable make it all worthwhile. The added ginger gives this juice extra flavor that works well with the sweetness of the beetroot and apples.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Large beetroot (approx 400g)
  • 1 Small piece of ginger (1 inch)
  • 5 Medium-sized cucumbers
  • 6 Apples
