Early Fall blessings to All! The maple leaves are just beginning to offer a glimpse of their potential red, orange, & yellow glory yet to come! Can't wait. My favorite season of the year is here . . . cooler temperatures, drier air, high-energy color in the woodlands, and time to harvest my winter squashes before the squirrels and deer discover their sweetness . . . buttercup, butternut, acorn, and pumpkin. Yum! I cut and stored 48 buttercup squash just last week. I haven't even counted the other squash yet. Good harvest so far! Sorry for my long absence, I've been busy prepping and teaching medicinal herb classes and also preparing for an intensive, long weekend class in advanced Ayurveda for myself.
Today I will share with you another juice recipe from my book, "Raw Energy". The juice is gloriously colored, sweet and tangy. Wonderful for children and adults. Enjoy!
Here Comes The Sun
This vibrant juice beams with the colors of the sunrise and is simply chock-full of energetic vibrations that will strengthen and balance your innermost being. An anti-oxidant rich cocktail that will help boost your immunity to colds and flu. I suggest you and your family partake of this luscioius juice frequently. If you want to up the already high anti-oxidant level, then add 1/2 to 1 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries or concord grapes to the blend. It will turn a blue/orange color, but will be ultra potent! Here's to your winter health!
- 3 medium oranges, tangerines, or tangelos, peeled & sectioned
- 3 medium carrots
- 1 ripe, medium papaya, seeded, flesh scooped out
1. Wash all produce thoroughly. Juice the oranges, carrots, and papaya, together. For this recipe, you don't need to use a separate citrus juicer for the citrus fruit - just toss it in with the other ingredients.
2. Stir to blend before consuming. Drink immediately.
