Green Juices
Method Comments

It is DAY 22 of "Green Juicing With Omega" to celebrate our AMAZING Omega Juicer Giveaway. I have announced two lucky winners, and have just notified a third person. Don't miss out on your chance to win one of the two remaining Omega Vert VRT350 Masticating Juicers. Thankyou for all of your lovely appreciative emails this week. I am SO glad you are enjoying the juices. Please post comments under any recipes that you try. I would love to get your feedback.

Today, I am sharing another fabulous detox juice from the gorgeous Blythe Metz, host of the incredible web series, Blythe Raw Live that airs on WyTV, every Friday at 12PM PT on Ustream or Blythe interviews leading experts in natural health and nutrition, makes delicious raw vegan recipes, shares natural homemade beauty treatments and environmental education. I learn so much watching this show.

Blythe already shared her Greentini Juice earlier this month. YUMMO! This lovely lady is so stunningly gorgeous, and serves as a glowing example of the power of raw juicing. Check out the "Green Juices to Revitalize You" Google + HOA (Hangouts on Air) Blythe and I did last year about the health benefits of juicing. Blythe is so wonderful at using her platform as an actor, lifestyle personality, eco entrepreneur, and social activist to affect social change, and I have so much respect for her. 

This fabulous watermelon, grapefruit detox juice mixing turmeric and radishes strikes a wonderful tasty balance with enormous health benefits. Watermelon juice is not only incredibly hydrating, it is a wonderful natural tonic for gastrointestinal complaints, pulmonary disorders, skin problems, arthritis, gout, headaches, and for boosting energy. Watermelon juice also flushes acids out of the body, renewing the blood. 

Grapefruit contains valuable calcium, potassium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, vitamin C, as well as Vitamin A and some B complex vitamins. The pith contains powerful bioflavonoids which assist healthy blood capillaries, and help burn excess fat in the body. Radishes help to regulate the thyroid, and are great for constipation by stimulating the peristaltic movement of the colon. They also assist with liver detoxification and gall bladder inflammation.

What I love about this juice blend is the addition of turmeric, which is LOADED with goodness. Turmeric contains powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents, as well as having natural antibiotic, antiseptic, and analgesic properties. Turmeric improves digestion, purifies your blood, lowers cholesterol, heals stomach ulcers, prevents gas and bloating, assists fat metabolism, and a slough of other things. It is just MAGICAL. I welcome ANY opportunity to include turmeric into my daily diet. This juice is a really delicious way to get your dose! 

Blythe says of this juice, "This tasty bright pink juice helps rid your body of toxins and fat deposits, making your body function better and your skin glow brighter. A girl best friend for sure. Enjoy!" 

Blythe, thanks for sharing yet another one of your wonderful creations. 
You just RAWK!

Tip: the best way to grate fresh ginger

Nothing beats a porcelain ginger grater! Just rub the whole ginger piece unpeeled over the grater and you have it ready in literally seconds, Procelain ginger graters are as cheap and chips and so easy to clean. Just place the whole grater under running water and everything runs off. That little piece of kitchen gadget mastery would be in my top ten favourite cooking tools. I have had mine for years and travel everywhere with it. Thankyou Tony!

oh man, i did not get an email! LOL
i can’t wait to try this juice


LOL! Yes, this one is a WINNER! YUMMO!

This juice looks awesome. I need to try it now!


Yes. This is really delicious and so cleansing too.

Looks great! I love grapefruit, this is the perfect morning juice! Thanks for sharing.


Yes! This juice is a winner, and grapefruit is so alkalizing and refreshing in the morning. Enjoy :)

this was soooo good!  I couldn’t find the turmeric root so I used ginger and I used coconut water.  What a tasty drink.


Fabulous! Thanks for sharing your experience!

Hi, could you make this as a smoothie instead of juice??? Thanx :)


Yes. Just add 1/2 a grapefruit, only a small amount of turmeric, only one radish (then add more to taste), and then tweak flavours to taste.

Look great! How long should I stay on it?


Sorry Douri - I don’t know what you mean? I don’t recommend just drinking this juice and nothing else. But, it’s a great thing to have on rotation every couple of weeks to flush out your system.

Could I use daikon radish? Thanks for answering in advance.


You will get a different flavor with daikon radishes. It may be too pungent. But, I am always up for juicing anything. Let me know how it goes.

I made this in the blender, with one two radishes and removing a great deal of the pith.  It came out fine and I don’t like watermelon, but that is the only flavor that disappeared.


OK. Thanks for sharing your experience with blending this!
