A Juice Fast in the Dead of Winter Calls for Summertime Heat!
A juice fast in the dead of winter calls for something spicy and gingery. Something that will warm me up from the inside out! Besides, who wants to sip on a cold green juice during a winter blizzard? Not me! My body is craving drinks that will warm me from head to toe. Not a drink that will turn me into an ice sickle!
Juicing in the summer is easier!
A Juice fast in the summertime is easier than a juice fast in the wintertime. But then, fasting isn’t about our comfort is it? I am beginning to see that there is more that needs to “die” during this winter fast – my attitude. Fasting definitely has a way of exposing what’s in your heart.
But no matter how many times I have experienced fasting, I still find it very hard to drink cold drinks in the wintertime! So how is a girl to warm up on this juice fast? I’m going to create a juice that I call “Summertime Heat”! A juice with lots of ginger and cayenne pepper is exactly what I need to heat up these bones!
1 cucumber, chopped
1 lemon, peeled
3 celery stalks
1 pear, peeled
1/2 – 1 inch piece of ginger root
1 kiwi, peeled
handful of dandelion greens
a dash of cayenne pepper
Juice cucumber, lemon, celery, pear and ginger in a juicer. Pour into a high-powered blender, add kiwi, dandelion greens and pepper blending well. Enjoy!
*If dandelion greens are not in season, kale is a great alternative.
This “Summertime Heat” will definitely get your blood moving and so will my Spicy & Hot Carrot Juice too!
