Nobody likes having a cold, so today I’m sharing my go to fresh squeezed power juice that I have whenever I feel a cold coming on.
Whenever I feel a little tingle in my throat, cough, or in some other way feel a cold coming on, I whip out my juicer and make this fresh squeezed power juice. It’s full of strong citrusy and vitamin-c packed fruits and topped off with spices that make you sweat a little bit.
Last time I had a cold I squeezed and drank several big glasses of this juice. What had started out as something threatening to become a nasty cold (you know those initial symptoms of aching body and sore throat) never blossomed to more than just that first two or three days of a sore throat. I swear chugging so much of this spicy fresh squeezed power juice was what got me back in action so quickly.
I can’t recommend this juice enough. As soon as you’re feeling the slightest symptom of a cold of flu, make it!
Fresh Squeezed Power Juice
Makes 1 glass
1 apple, chopped into 4 pieces
1 orange, peeled
1/2 lemon, peeled
1 stalk of celery
thumb sized piece of fresh ginger
1/4 tsp chili power
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp turmeric
- Chop all your fruit and vegetables into chunks small enough to fit in your juicer. Peel the lemon and orange. The apple and ginger don’t need peeling.
- Pop all the fruit and vegetables into your juicer.
- Once everything is juiced, add the spices and whisk to combine.
- Taste and then add some cold water to dilute the juice if it’s too tart.
