The Hydrator Juice

Jun 20, 2014 BY Joy McCarthy

Hey guys!

I woke up this morning feeling totally craving a fresh juice. Not surprisingly as I've been sweating more these days because I've upped the ante on my workouts! I've been doing Eat Clean Body Lean (Walker's daily energizers sure do get my heart-rate up) and barreworks (it's like a ballet bootcamp). However, I'm feeling stronger and my bike rides to the office are getting faster and faster!

The Hydrator Juice was the perfect way to start the day because not only is it full of electrolytic minerals such as potassium, magnesium, sodium (celery) but it's incredibly hydrating to my joyous cells. Most of the veggies and fruits I used are over 85% water content.

When you hydrate properly, your body can work more efficiently overall to burn fat, eliminate wastes, digest food and create beautiful skin from within. That's been the theme lately from my segment on Global last week to my workshop tomorrow -- beautify from the inside out.

Here's the recipe, I hope you enjoy it!

  • Half a cucumber
  • 4 celery* stalks
  • 1 lime
  • 4 kale leaves
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 3 carrots
  1. Using a juice extractor, place all the fruits and veggies in one by one.


You can juice the celery tops, the leafy part. I had to cut it off because it was a little slimy and you don't want to eat that!

By the way, have you tried the Watermelon Cucumber Salad yet? Talk about getting your hydration from food!

Have a joyous day!

I love the idea of the lime and grapefruit in this juice! Sounds super refreshing :) I've been juicing a lot more now that summer is here and like you, I've also been adding more workouts into my routine. I've started doing kettle bell each week along with long walks every Saturday morning and yoga a few times a week!

What do you recommend as a fruit alternative when you are highly allergic to apples, and mildly allergic to peaches, pears, plums, nectarines and apricots.

Hi Sharon, There aren't any of those fruits in this recipe, and what you'd swap out would depend on how that particular fruit was used in the recipe. Kate - Joyous Health Team

Could you recommend a specific model of juicer you love? Are cold-press juicers preferred? If juicing in the morning, would you still start with hot lemon water and then juice? <3 Thanks, Rita

Hi Rita! The brands Hurom & Omega make great juicers. The key is to look for a slow masticating juicer in order to retain the most nutrients. I typically start with warm lemon water first thing in the morning no mater what I'm eating/drinking but it's not absolutely necessary, especially if you're adding lemon to your juice :) Heather- Joyous Health Team
