25 Healthy Juice Recipes

Juicing and blending fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs have always been popular. Whether enjoying an early morning boosting energy juice or late evening calming down and relaxing concoction, healthy juice recipes can be an essential part of our daily routine.
More and more people are becoming food and beverage conscious, preferring the homemade “know what is in” juices, mocktails, or milkshakes, and just trying to stay away from drinks with lots of artificial additives and sweeteners.

Nettle Recipes

nettle^, or stinging nettle, is a shrub that comes from northern Europe and Asia, and it has a lot of potential health benefits. People have used it for centuries to help with health issues such as arthritis, pain, inflammation, and hay fever.

Stinging nettle offers a variety of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids, polyphenols, and pigments — many of which also act as antioxidants inside your body.
