Take Your Juice Routine to the Next Level

For many, morning juice has become a must. Each day, bleary-eyed, we chop and feed fresh produce through our juicer, eagerly awaiting the creamy rich goodness to wake us up. We have our favorite flavor combinations down.

But what I’m about to tell you will open it up to a whole new level. It’s the game of playing with herbal infusions.

Cinnamon, chamomile, mint, ginger, and turmeric — all of them have extreme health benefits and can take the flavors of your juice to new heights. I like to brew a sort of tea with my desired herb (or combination of herbs), stash it in the fridge, and use it all week long in combination with my morning juice. Below are two recipes to get you started. Once you figure out the simple process, use the same method to experiment with other flavor combinations and let us know what you find!
