Cleansing green juice recipe
In creating this recipe, I thought I would combine two new passions – first, the Juico UNO juicer. This slow juicer rocks! In comparison to my previous slow juicer, I’ve found it to be very reliable, quiet, and easy to clean too. If you’re a regular in juice bars and want to make them for yourself, it’s a worthwhile investment. And second, the green juice I had while in Cambridge. I made sure to watch carefully when it was made so I knew just what goes into a cleansing green juice.
Cleansing green juice
2 sticks of celery
1/2 medium cucumber
1 medium green apple
1. Start by slicing all the deliciously green produce into finger-like pieces
2. Pop them all into the juicer; I would recommend juicing the apple last
3. Decant into a glass and serve!
As for the pulp, while there’s not much from one juice, you could try making some juice pulp crackers rather than throwing it away!

My Hangover Preventing Juice.
Fruit and vegetables really can work wonders for the body. They are packed full of vitamin and nutrient goodness ready for the taking. As this is the second in a pair of posts that I am doing in partnership with Thrive Magazine, using the lovely Juico Matt Silver Slow Juicer they sent me, I thought that I would put all this goodness to the test.
Hangovers are horrid. Lets be honest, we have all been there, that awful feeling the morning after when all you want to do is be wrapped in cotton wool and curl up in a ball. I have therefore sought to find the perfect, hangover preventing juice. Admittedly this is no miracle cure, but it is packed full of the fruit and vegetable goodness that will help fight that horrible next-day feeling.
I have recently read quite a few articles suggesting a glass of pear juice, pre-night out, helps to prevent a hangover. Those who drank pear juice, prior to a night on the town saw significantly less effects (up to 21% less) the next day due to the effect of enzymes in the pear on the metabolism of alcohol. Although, so far Asian pears have been the main focus of the study, I am willing to have a go with any pear I can get my hands on.
I have partnered the pear with a number of other fruits and vegetables, all of which have qualities that will hopefully help you feel right as reign in the morning.
Coconut water: as well as being rich in nutrients, coconut water is an excellent at hydrating (better than many of the sports drinks out there).
Beetroot and spinach: both contain high levels of vitamin B which support both the liver and the pancreas. Each leaf is packed full of folic acid, vitamin C and sulphur - all nutrients heralded for warding off any evil hangover symptoms.
Pineapple: is rich in potassium, which gives your body a head start replacing the potassium lost due to alcohol's dehydrating effect.
Ginger: stomach soother and all around anti-inflammatory.
So all you have to do is take two small beetroot, a handful of spinach, one large slice of pineapple and a slice of ginger. Pop them all through the juicer and top up with coconut water.
A glass of this before a night out should do you wonders. Go off, paint the town red and dance the night away.

Tropical Thirst Quenching Juice, plus Exclusive Juico UNO Offer
Happy Friday lazy green people, and what a lovely Friday it is! The sun is shining here in Cornwall and I’m trying to stay as cool as possible without reaching for the (dairy-free) ice-cream! Instead, I’m keeping my hydration up and exporting myself to somewhere more exotic with my favourite tropical thirst quenching juice of watermelon, pineapple and cucumber!
I first came across this recipe a few weeks ago, when I was testing out my new Juico UNO juicer and was looking for something extra juicy. What I loved about this recipe is how much juice to pulp ratio you get, and – as my Juico is almost completely self-cleaning – I didn’t have to bother cleaning it out afterwards! Maximum juice and maximum flavour!
1/3 medium Watermelon
½ small pineapple
- 2 Tbsp of coconut water to finish

Make this now: try our Citrus + Dark Greens Juice
Here at Vitalicious, we're loving our shiny new Juico and have added it to our wealth of kitchen kit. It's the perfect 'morning' juicer, meaning that it takes between 5-10 mins to make a juice, clean and drink it. While there's yet to be any official record set for the fastest cold pressed juice, this surely has to be a contender!
There's a tonne of Cavolo Nero at the farmers' markets right now, so it's time to get lean, mean and dark green with this tasty treat. To take some of the bitter edge off, we're throwing in some lemon, lime and grapefruit. The trick with adding citrus is to minimise the sugar that you might otherwise get if you threw a whole apple in, but to give a light, zesty summery taste.
With the sun shining brightly outside, those greens are growing gloriously - which makes the taste all the better! The recipe below makes two juices, so you can either share with a friend, or be greedy like me and enjoy a second helping.
What you'll need:
Cavolo Nero (5 stalks)
Celery (1 stalk)
A Cucumber (yeah, a whole one! Go all out)
1/4 of a lemon
1/8 of a grapefruit (I used pink, but white's good too)
1/2 a lime
Cut the celery and Cavolo Nero into thinner strips if they are wide - one thing you DONT want to do is ram the veggies or fruit into it forcefully. The Juico likes to be treated gently! It'll 'swallow' the fruits and veg, all you have to do is drop it in.
Put the citrus in first. I've had two tries at this and for some reason the extraction is even better when the lemon, lime and grapefruit go in before the greens.
If you're a green juice newbie, add more grapefruit - about 1/4 is a good starter.

If you have made almond milk (or any other nut milk) do not throw the pulp away. Instead turn it into simple, quick, delicious and gluten-free almond pulp cookies. I got recently send, from the lovely people at the Thrive Magazine, Juico Slow Juicer and decided to put it to a test and make some almond milk. (Link to my post about almond milk) The milk was so delicious and left me with loads of yummy almond pulp, which is full of protein, vitamins and fiber, so I couldn’t bear to throw it away that I decided to bake up some biscuits. I added some shredded coconut for texture, honey for touch of sweetness, chia egg to help to bind it together, cinnamon for a bit of warmth and spice and of course a splash of freshly made almond milk to ensure the cookies are not too crumbly. Here are my ingredients but do not let me limit your creativity and add/change/swap your favourite ingredients.
Don’t worry if you don’t have any pulp left, you could use almond flour or ground almonds too.
2 cups almond pulp
1 chia egg (1tbsp of chia seeds + 3tbsp almond milk, let sit for 10 min)
6 tbsp. almond milk
1-2 tbsp. honey (depending how sweet your sweet tooth is)
1 heaped tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp. unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line up your baking tray with baking paper.
Next mix all ingredients in a bowl and combine well. Roll dough into balls, place on the baking tray and flatten with your fingers to create a cookie shape. Pop in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown colour. Let cool down completely before taking of the tray and devouring.
There you go, how simple. If you do give the almond milk a go, save the leftover pulp and try baking these cookies, they are worth it! Remember to serve them with glass of homemade almond milk.

Another juicer recipe for you….
BUT this is not a juice!
One of the things that has always frustrating me about the idea of juicer is what to do with the pulp…. I almost feel like shooting ’Nooooooo’ as I tip it into the compost.
If you are anything like me, that has probably played on your mind too. Organic veggies are not cheap and so I want to salvage an much as I possible can of them. I know there are recipes out their for juice pulp burgers and such which I am yet to try but today I have something much, much easier. Plus it requires no cooking which also means no loss of nutritional value. Win win!!
Play around with various different pulp combinations. You may find some veggies are more fibrous than others, and some pulp remains wetter than others. I think the fact that this particulate batch had some tomato pulp gave it a great texture.
Get creative with herbs and spices too. This recipe is simply a guide to get started.
I kept this batch in a sealed container in the fridge and used it as a side or topping for various meals and snacks over the following couple of days…. try in salads, mixed with hummus, over avocado toast, in sandwiches. Or even sprinkle over hot meals one such as pastas dishes once served, to give a boost of colour and fibre!
You’ll see my Juico photos popping up over social media… plus a few videos clips I recorded. (you would have laughed at my ridiculous video set-up balancing my camera on a box stacked on a step ladder in the kitchen to get the angle) I’m no video pro but i’m having fun trying!
P.s like I mentioned join my first post. I was gifted the Juico Uno Juicer in return for trialling it and producing content to show how it can be used… but as ever all the thoughts here are all my own!
If you have a juicer… you must give this a go next time to have some veggie based pulp! (then let me know what you think!)
recipe: ‘salad’ coleslaw
Serves approx. 4
The pulp leftover from juicing:
1 red pepper
2 large carrots
6 romaine lettuce leaves (or equivalent)
1 garlic clove
1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs balsamic vinegar
a little salt and pepper to taste
herbs or species to taste (I used a tablespoon chopped fresh mint or you could use a sprinkle of cayenne for a kick)
Make the juice using the vegetables and set aside to consume separately.
The remaining pulp will be fairly wet due to the nature of vegetables used. Toss with a fork to mix and then add the remaining ingredients. Toss again to mix and then serve as a side or anywhere you’d use ‘coleslaw’ such as a burger topping’.
Slightly spicy and full of goodness, this bright green juice will get you going
- 2 Medium Green Apples (360g)
- 4 Celery stalks, large (25 - 30cm long) (250g)

The celery in this juice will provide you with a wide range of B vitamins, potassium, folic acid, iron, phosphorus, sodium and amino acids – all of which when combined are said to be a good muscle relaxant for those of you who are active. Apples are a good source of pectin, a soluble Fibre which are know to help with appetite control and can improve digestion and contribute to reduce cholesterol. Cucumbers are an excellent source of vitamins A, C and K, phosphorus, manganese, magnesium and potassium. Cucumbers are known to help with water retention, and are also high in Silicon which is very important in cell structure of connective tissues.
This 100% fruit juice is a real treat to combat the winter creeping in.
