The “Glow” Juice

Kreation Kafe is a “go-to” because it’s incredibly fresh, carpeted in bright green AstroTurf and cute puppies, while reclaimed wood and succulents hug all of the big open windows looking out on Abbot Kinney for perfect people watching (my kind of place)!

One thing they’ve mastered: simple clean juices that make you feel like you’re upgrading your entire life’s existence with just 16 oz. of juice, for the “bargain price” of $8-$12 a bottle.

Hey, glowing skin doesn’t come cheap, or does it?

[Queue the angels singing and harps playing]…. I give you “The Glow Juice” recipe.

Now, we can all make these awesome bougie juices (but far less diluted, and much fresher) for under $5, and triple the ounces of glow all week!

Ready, set, juice!!

1 green pepper, 1 orange, 1 large cucumber, 1 1/2 green apples, and a few inches of peeled aloe. You can add 3-4 cups of water to stretch the juice longer, and make it more of an actual juice, less of a thick smoothie. 

So, what makes these 5 very simple ingredients so worthy of your blender’s blades? 

Green Peppers: Silicon-rich pepper, supports complexion doing as much for your skin as a moisturizer. Also a great source for potassium, which balances fluids and minerals in your body to regulate blood pressure.

Aloe Vera: Cellular regeneration, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, and detoxification all contribute to the stabilization aided by consumption of Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera is also known to improve the immune system and promote fast recovery from illness.

Cucumber: high in water, flush toxins that impede normal GI and urinary function. Also, equally hydrating as water, but more nutritious than water.

Apple: Antioxidant-rich apple purifies the blood while satisfying hunger to combat cravings and promote weight-loss. Soluble fiber in apples lowers cholesterol and increases heart health.

Orange: With over 60 flavonoids and 170 phytonutrients, oranges have a ton of health benefits from regulating blood pressure to relieving constipation. The beta-carotene also protects skin cells from damage.

Enjoy, and happy glowing!
