Health drinks for the heart and soul 

By changing what you eat, you can enliven your heart and enhance your soul.  I found an amazing post this week containing some delicious healthy drink recipes. The article was so tasty that I left a comment for the writer requesting permission to share his work; luckily he agreed.  The post was written by Jaison, if you’re interested in reading more of his material, you can find his blog at the following address:

The Body Cleanser: Use 3 parts apple 1 part ginger and 3 parts carrot. The main benefits of this juice include revitalization of the body, good for cold and glowing skin. Beauticians usually prescribe this juice because of its extremely good effects on the skin. But the benefits are not limited to the skin. It has a cleansing and boosting effect to the whole body.

The Cholesterol BusterThe Cholesterol Buster:
 A juice made from Apple cucumber and celery is known to fight cancerand reduce cholesterol. It also improves any sort of stomach upset and headache. This juice is a must have once you have crossed your 30’s. If you have this juice every other day, then you will not have to worry about your cholesterol level any more.  Sample proportion – 2 parts apple, 1 part cucumber and 1 part celery
Super BreathSuper Breath:  This juice is specifically for people who want toimprove their skin complexion. The ingredients are Apple, Carrot and Tomato. For better effect use Green apples. This juice also had an added advantage of eliminating bad breath. This is due to the Apple, Tomato combination. Sample proportion- 2 part apple, 2 part carrot and 1 part tomato
Super CoolerSuper Cooler:  A combination of Bitter gourd milk and Apple is used when one generates lots of internal body heat. This juice will instantly cool down your internal body heat and make you more comfortable. It also fights bad breath just like our previous recipe.  Sample proportion- 1 part Bitter gourd, 1 cup milk, 2 full Apples
Super SkinSuper Skin:  It is a very well know fact that orange and cucumber are the most vital things to have if one is concerned about the skin. A combination of these two combined with ginger will act as a supper supplement for your skin. Its combined effect will improve the skin texture and moisture content in the skin. It is also a body heat reducing drink.  Sample Proportion- 2 parts orange 2 parts cucumber ½ part ginger
The Wild Thing:  Now, this one is one of my favorites. Apple, Pineapple and Watermelon blends together to form a wonderful mouth watering juice which is excellent for you kidney and bladder. It also helps dispelling excess salts from your body. Some people use a tint of salt with this juice but I like to drink it as it is without the salt flavor.  Sample proportion- 2 Apples, ½ Pine apple and ¼ Watermelon (The seeds should be removed otherwise the taste will differ)
The Vitamin JuiceThe Vitamin Juice:  This is an extremely healthy drink with loads and loads of vitamin content. It is made from Honeydew, black grapes, watermelon and milk. If you have kids at home, they will love this. Other than Vitamin C, it also has Vitamin B12.  It also increases the cell activity and strengthens body immunity.  Sample Proportion- Mix in equal proportions.
The Sugar FighterThe Sugar Fighter: This is a simple but very useful and easy to digest juice. It regulates the sugar content in our body. The juice is made of Pear and banana. Pear is good for an ulcer, constipation, and urination and also works for congestion, fever alleviation, and cough. Banana is good for people who have high blood pressure because it is low in salt. Banana contains tryptophan, a type of protein  that the body converts into serotonin. Serotonin is a hormone that is known to make you feel happy and improve your mood. Sample Proportion 3 parts pear and 2 parts banana.
 Anti OxidantAnti Oxidant:  A juice made by mixing mango, pear, carrot and apple will act as an antioxidant. It clears the body heat, counteracts toxicity and decrease blood pressure. Apple is a well known anti oxidant. The addition of mango makes this juice a very tasty drink. Sample proportion- 3 parts mango, 2 parts peer, 2 parts carrot, 2 parts apple.
 Purple Pine:  Purple pine is made from pineapple and grapes. A black grape is usually used. The drink is high in iron and pineapple acts as a Potential Anti-Inflammatory and Digestive agent. It is a good drink to have after your lunch or dinner. Grape juice is known to be good for heart.  Sample Proportion- ½ Pineapple and 1 full cup of grapes.
 health drinksPink Floyd:  This is an extremely tasty juice (Most of the times used as milk shake) which is made from a combination of banana and strawberry. The strawberries should be ripe enough and should be mixed or blend very well before using. Some people filter this drink but I like to drink it without filtering because I love those tiny strawberry pieces floating in the drink.   Sample Proportion- 8 medium size strawberries and 3 bananas with half cup milk
