Spicing it up with Juices

With the bounty of summer produce and fruits well on their way to stores and farmers markets, I have become obsessed with juicing. And not just obsessed with the act of juicing but the fact that I have another outlet for creating recipes and incorporating spices into them!

Juicing is a really good way to detox the body without depriving it of essential nutrients and always use organic produce. Here are just a few of the recipes I have been working with and some ideas on how to bring those digestive spices out to help clean out the system even more!

Beet, Carrot & Cumin (pictured)

1 medium beet, peeled
8 juicing carrots, peeled
2 mini cucumbers
1 tsp toasted cumin seeds (added at the end)

Carrot, Apple & Ginger

8 juicing carrots, peeled
4 red apples, peeled, cored and cut into pieces
2 celery stalks
2 rhubarb stalks
tiny piece of fresh ginger

Mango, Apple & Cardamom

2 Ataulfo or very ripe mangoes
4 apples
1 banana
1/2 tsp Coorg Bold Cardamom (add at the end)

Other spices that would go really well with any vegetable and/or fruit juice include:
Black Pepper (try it with pineapple or orange)
Paprika (great with a green juice)
Nigella Seeds (if juicing squash or sweet potato)
