Ever have those days when you’re lacking energy as well as the time and motivation to do something about it?
Yea, me too.
That’s when I am especially appreciate of 3 to 4 ingredient recipes that’ll get my energy levels back up. Like the super simple juicing recipes for energy below.
The first one is my absolute favorite and go to recipe for when I know I’m in a slump – just 3 ingredients, strangely delicious, and ridiculously energizing (especially when you juice it on a regular basis).
But don’t discard the others – they’re just as simple, very delicious, and although they’re not as potent, they’re perfect to juice on a daily basis!
#1. A Stupid Simple Juice Recipe for Energy
If you haven’t yet tried ginseng in a juice recipe, this is your chance! The Energizer Bunny is a rejuvenating juice that takes just a few minutes to make and results in energy that keeps going and going.
Ginseng’s super multi-faceted – this potent root boosts immunity, purified your blood, reduces stress, increases stamina and goes a long way toward improving your overall energy levels.
It’s even been shown to enhance memory and boost cognitive function! Not to mention the metabolism boost it gives your system…
To top it all off, apples and carrots add an anti-oxidant-laden sweetness to the mix!
In case you find the taste of ginger too strong for you, you can increase the carrots and decrease the ginseng to start.
Want a lil extra oomph in this recipe? Add…
Chia seeds for its omega 3 fatty acids & to prolong hydration!
MSM for better immunity, energy & to heal sore, painful joints!
#2. A Sweet & Spicy Energizing Juice
Better than Gatorade—this energizing weight loss juice recipe will bring you back to the days when Grandpa Joe sat on the old farmhouse porch all the sunny afternoon, eating slice after slice of watermelon and spitting out the seeds.
Melons are especially great juicing ingredients in the summer because of the electrolytes they contain, and the potent mix of vital vitamins in this drink will help keep away any and all summer sniffles.
Melons also contain a good range of energy-boosting B vitamins which are also a must-have in the draining summer days when sweltering outdoor conditions and decreased exercise may threaten to bring down your metabolism.
And remember – despite their yummy sweetness, melons are pretty low in sugar – making them perfect for when you need a sweet treat without increasing your waistline.
Ginger is optional, but I recommend it as it adds a delicious kick to this overall sweet energizing juice recipe!
