Juices for Vitality!

Juices for Vitality

Feeling a little sluggish? Tired or just lacking energy? Want to surf longer, paddle harder and get wave after wave? Why not enter the world of raw juicing.

In such a technological age a lot of us seem to ignore or minimise natural therapies, when really they are the best thing for us. The team at Ola Nina has become a little juice crazed lately so we’ve decided to share all our recipes. For maximum juicing results use a juicer with a 1200 watt motor.

Below is one our favourites:
Berry Morning Delight

(Makes about two glasses)
You will need
 6-7 strawberries

A generous handful of blueberries, blackberries and raspberries

1 ripe banana

A cup of soy milk

A tablespoon of honey

Two tablespoons of vanilla yogurt

A teaspoon of chia seeds

Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until a smooth texture. Add crushed ice if desired.

Radiance Tea

Do you love tea? Our delicious Radiance Tea will make your day.

Radiance Tea
Dried dandelion (2 teaspoons)
Mint (1 handful)
1 Lemon

Boil the water and fill a tea pot. Add dandelion, lemon juice and a a handful of shredded mint leaves. Leave to stand for 3 mins. Add lemon slices to serve.

Health Benefits
Dandelion and Lemon are used for detoxifying the body and help restore your inner glow. Mint is rich in Vitamins A and C and contains smaller amounts of Vitamin B2. It also adds a fresh flavour and smells delicious. Herbal tea is also good for rehydration.
