Glowing Pumpkin Juice
And our pumpkin obsession CONTINUES! This time though, we're still recovering from our slight overindulgence in our super sweet layered Pumpkin Chocolate Fudge. This beautiful, saffron colored juice did just the trick. Packed with citrus and seasonal pumpkin, this juice will brighten your day...and your skin! The beta carotene in the pumpkin is a powerful antioxidant crucial for normal skin cell development healthy skin tone. The Vitamin C found in the oranges, apples, and lemons not only builds a strong immune system and helps blemishes heal properly but also helps firm & tone skin, prevent free-radical damage, protects skin cells, and prevents signs of aging (like wrinkles!). And the mango? Delicious, yes, but also packed with beta carotene and Vitamin A- giving you that extra soft, smooth skin you CRAVE in this cool fall weather. Plus, what could be easier than cutting up your fruits and letting the juicer do all the work? Except when it comes to washing the damn thing, but that's a whole different story...so let's drink!
1 small pumpkin, skinned, deseeded, and cubed (about 2 cups)
4 oranges, peeled
2 apples, cored
2 lemons, peeled
1 mango, peeled & pitted
Prep all fruits by washing, peeling (if necessary), and cutting them. Throw into your juicer a few pieces at a time, being sure to juice the stubborn pumpkin on 'HIGH'. Juice completely into a large container. Serve in two smaller containers, or refrigerate leftovers for up to 3 days. Enjoy!
