#RealJuice with Philips and Madeline Shaw - Weekend juice recipes

Tuesday, 4 November 2014

Juicing seems to be buzz word this year in the  health community but taking part in a juice detox can actually not be that good for you or your health. Philips are campaign for #RealJuice and want to encourage people to ditch bottled juice in exchange for one fresh juice a day rather than an extreme detox.

I am currently following the #RealJuice plan created by Madeline Shaw (Millie Mackintosh’s nutritionist) and Phillips. You can read more about the plan and my first 5 days following it here but I've shared the weekend recipes below.

Here are a couple of tasty recipes from the plan that you can try yourself at home:

: Hangover helper juice - 3 medium-size tomatoes, 3 stalks of celery, 1 peeled lemon (or less according to taste), 2cm of ginger, 1 jalapeño pepper (seedless), 1/2 a cucumber

This is a spin on the classic bloody mary and the ginger and pepper gives it a real kick.

Sunday: Classic cleanse juice - 3 carrots, a beetroot, an apple and two stalks of celery.

Beetroot contributes to cleansing of your living, helping to reinvigorate your body. It was a little too earthy for my tastes so I simply added another apple. Delicious!

Which of these juices sounds the most tempting to you?
Have you tried any of the juices from the first five days of the plan?


  1. I am on Slimming World at the moment so I am being healthy! This looks good!

  2. They always look much nicer once they have been blitzed together, beforehand, not a chance I would try it.

  3. It looks so Healthy and dont think I could do the five day juices plan, x

  4. The first one sounds pretty powerful. I could do with some of that this Saturday morning actually!
