How about using those fruits and veggies from your kitchen pantry to make bottles of homemade juices? They are quick, healthy and you don't need a juicer either!
A simple blend to make with the easiest ingredients you can find. Add your carrots, apples, lemon juice, celery, salt and parsley in a blender, give it a buzz, strain and pour yourself a glass of health.
Cucumber is quite the summer favourite. It's refreshing and goes well with almost anything. Pair it with some spinach, lemon, salt and pepper and you have yourself a glass of green goodness.
Getting its beautiful colour from the bright red beetroot, this juice is pretty as it is refreshing. Add some ginger to take this juice a few notches up.
The tangy mango and earthy kale make for an interesting combination. Blend in a little lime juice for the added zest and drink up.
This tangy concoction is anything but boring. You can add some sweetness to it with a little sugar or honey to take the citrus level down.
Take a trip to tropical land with this coconut and pomegranate juice. Coconut water mixed with the pretty ruby-like seeds make for a delicious summer quencher.
Spice up your regular watermelon juice with a hint of ginger and basil. The sweetness of the melon compliments the ginger giving you the perfect summer drink to sip on while you tan in the backyard.
