    Default Juicing in the morning- best recipes for maximum benefit?

    I have to admit, I am awesome telling my kids what to do with their health, but I'm not taking care of myself, not sitting down to eat, struggling with water intake, ect.

    I have started a morning ritual of juicing. I have been fiddling around with varieties for the past couple of weeks, but this mornings concoction has sent me over the edge of yukkiness.

    - Strawberries (5)
    - Passionfruit (1)
    - Kiwifruit (1)
    - Half a beetroot, don't ask me why.
    - Black and white chia seeds.

    I have tried to base it with an apple/ blackcurrent Nudie juice, but felt like the health benefits would be minimal, more sugar than anything.

    Does anyone have recipes or guide me toward the best nutrient/taste combos? I would really prefer to bulk my fruit and vegetable intake in the mornings, the more tired I get, the less willing I am to do it.

    My DP makes a bulk lot of juice each Sunday so he doesn't have to do each day.

    7 Lebanese cucumbers
    7 apples
    7 oranges
    1/2 bunch kale
    1/2 bunch Spinach or silver wet
    Small piece of ginger
    1/2 pineapple
    7 tomatoes

    He likes this one even though it has a big green base which may sound yuck the fruit gives it a sweet tastes

    Add a bit of water aswell but his depends on the juicier we have. We have a ninja but found that there is a lot of waste product and it is very Bitsy to drink so he strains it. My mum on the other hand has a kuvingos juicer so we have borrowed that until we can afford to buy one ourselves as they are around $600

    Fruit juice has a very high concentration of sugar. I would be focussing on more veges and less fruit. By adding chia seeds etc I am assuming you are making a smoothly rather than actual juice?

    If it's juice your extracting, I would try using a combo of cucumber, celery, kale, lemon, ginger and green apple if you need extra sweetness.

    If your using a Nutri bullet or similar to make your 'juice' I would suggest a frozen banana, baby spinach, cucumber, celery, mint, and lemon. Adding chia seeds will thicken it.

    You need mostly veg/greens & just one fruit if you want it to be healthy. Tart it up with lemon or ginger if you need to.

    I have found a combo of about 50% fruit and 50% green veg is good. And less is more when it comes to the number of different things you put in there. So pineapple/Apple/pear is all good for the fruit and kale/spinach for the green veg, but cucumber goes well too without adding too much extra flavour. I put it all in a high speed blender so you keep all the fibre, rather than juicing.
    I think this looks like a good recipe too, but haven't tried it yet:
