As temperatures drop, it may not seem like prime time for cold-pressed juices and smoothies. In fact, the opposite is true. Our contributor, Nora Zelevansky, writes about why “Juicing in Winter” is so important. You can read her story when it comes out in our January/February issue.

Meanwhile, here is a sneak peek at some recipes we gathered from a variety of innovative top cold-pressed juice companies, which also offer bonuses from sustainable packaging to charitable tie-ins. Enjoy you winter juicing, and Drink up!

Winter Juicing 101

LOVE GRACE Apple Spice

5 apples

1/2 lemon

1 inch of Turmeric

1 inch of Ginger

Dash of pumpkin spice

Dash of cayenne

Juice the apples, lemon, ginger and turmeric. Stir in a dash of pumpkin spice and cayenne (to taste) for an additional kick. Serves 1

GLOW BIO Vegan Vanilla Latte

This recipe is a really simple and delicious cold-weather drink option, which  is nice to have in the evenings, to help soothe your nervous system.

12 oz unsweetened almond milk

1 tsp cinnamon

Stevia, as desired to sweeten

Measure out the almond milk. You can either make it yourself (Check out my Youtube video on easy-to-make instructions), or get an organic variety at a market.

Heat the almond milk in a pot to warm it up. Don’t boil!. Pour the milk back into your mug, then add 1 tsp. of cinnamon and stir. Sweeten as desired with Stevia.

Sip slowly and enjoy!

PALETA Apple, Carrot, Kale and Ginger

To make this at home in a blender (if you don’t have a cold-press), use lots of ice to keep the blender from heating up the juice.

10 kale leaves

 5 medium carrots

 2 medium apples

½” peeled ginger root

Handful of ice

Simply toss into a blender and liquefy. Bottoms up!

SUJA Carrot Apple

Juice  half a carrot and apple, add a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg. Simple, warming, and nourishing!

DAILY GREENS Vanilla-Grapefruit Green Juice

The vanilla with grapefruit adds a nice touch of sweetness without adding calories.

1 cucumber

3 to 4 kale leaves

Handful of cilantro leaves (from 2 to 3 stems)

1/2 grapefruit

1/4 lime

1 tbsp vanilla extract

Wash the cucumber, kale, and cilantro. Peel the grapefruit and lime and cut each into quarters that will fit through your juicer. Run all ingredients through your juicer and scrape off foam (if desired).

Stir in the vanilla, and enjoy this wonderful combination!
