We’re a few weeks into the new year, which means most of us have already given our resolutions the old college try, and traded in our salads for frozen leftover Christmas cookies. But just because we’ve fallen off the wagon doesn’t mean we should wait until 2017 to get healthy. The 50 Shades of Green juice from The Squeeze: Simply RAWnchy Detox Juices, Smoothies, Clean Eats & Treats ($20; amazon.com) is a simple and delicious way to ease back into our clean eating goals.
This particular blend boasts a myriad of health benefits: “Basil is antimicrobial, antifungal, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory,” writes Karliin Brooks, the book’s author and founder of The Squeeze, a wellness and beauty lifestyle company. “This juice is filled with rich minerals, silica, potassium, and magnesium, meaning it’s fabulous for your skin, hair, nails, and any skin-related complications.” It’s time to hit the juicer—recipe below!
