Juice Yourself to Better Skin and Health: Orange, Pineapple and Lemon Juice

Orange, pineapple, lemon, Manuka active honey and ice juice
'Cold War' juice by Jason Vale, review
A few years ago I bought Phillips juicer which proved to be a very energising purchase. I have been using it at least once a week for the last few years and the juicer still works perfectly well. The sharp bits that do the fruit and vegetables' cutting are a bit less sharp, but still fine.

So, why did I decide to talk about the juicer? The reason for this is that it came together with Jason Vale's book called 'the Juice Master', which has over 100 delicious juice and smoothie recipes, together with my purchase. I have been using this book quite a lot. I must have made at least 20 various juices or smoothies from this book, a lot of them many times. The problem is that I don't always remember which ones I made and which ones were yummy or not. I decided to blog about the juices that I made, so that the pictures and description of what I felt when drinking the juice serve me as my personal diary about the healthy concoctions that I drank. They will remind me of whether they were good or not so good in terms of taste, appearance and quantity. Hopefully, some of you will find my posts inspiring and decide to try out a recipe or two from the same book.

My review of the 'Cold War' juice

'Cold War' is the juice made of orange, pineapple, lemon, Manuka honey and some ice cubes. Look at the picture for the recipe. I made a triple amount as I had to share the juice with my kids and my husband.

The recipe of the juice
The fruit gave me three generous glasses of juice. At first, I tried the juice without honey, but it was too sour. It tasted good and refreshing after I added the remaining Manuka ingredient. My husband and the kids drank the fruity drink with pleasure.

What's in it for you?

  • Lots of vitamin C, which is not only a natural antibiotic, but also helps dissolve mucus and fight against free radicals that damages your skin and may cause heart disease.
  • Manuka honey has powerful antibacterial properties, but you can make the juice with different type of honey. The juice will taste good anyway.

My verdict: I will make this drink again.

Do you ever make your own juice? Which juice is your favourite?
