Fruit juice recipes for your diet

Pineapple, melon, and papaya juice
Take one cup of diced pineapple (remove skins), 1 melon slice, 2 diced papayas and half a glass of water. Wash the fruit well. Place it all in a blender and drink immediately without straining. This juice has loads of vitamin C and fibre which makes your body digest fats and helps you lose weight.
Strawberry, orange, and parsley juice
Take 1 cup of strawberries, the juice from an orange, a few parsley leaves, honey and water. Blend into a homogenous consistency. Drink a glass in the morning three times a week for one month. The drink has depurative and diuretic properties which prevents fluid retention.
Pineapple, tamarind, and papaya juice
Take 1 cup of diced pineapple, half a cup of tamarind juice and 1 slice of papaya. Extract the juice from the pineapple then blend it with all of the other ingredients. Strain and drink immediately. This juice prevents fluid retention, rids the body of toxins, rehydrates tissue and speeds up the metabolism.
Pear, pineapple, and yogurt juice
Take 1 pear, 1 pineapple slice, 1 tablespoon of natural sweetener (like stevia), 1 cup of flavourless, low fat yogurt, and half a tablespoon of vanilla extract. Peel the fruit and blend all ingredients for 30 seconds. Drink immediately.
Banana, soy milk, and linseed juice
Take 1 banana, 1 cup of soy milk, 1 tablespoon of natural, low fat yogurt, half a tablespoon of linseed (flax), half a tablespoon of honey, half a cup of frozen cranberries. Blend all of the ingredients and drink a cup before meals. It will help you to feel full so you eat less.
Fruit and vegetable drinks for weight loss
Apple, cucumber, and ginger juice
The ingredients are rich in pectin, which allows the body to rid itself of the accumulation of toxins in the digestive tract. Blend a slice of ginger (approximately 2.5 cm) with a peeled cucumber and the juice from an apple. Drink everyday on an empty stomach.
Watermelon and spinach juice
Watermelon is over 90% water so this is a great diuretic. It also contains vitamins A and C and potassium, which regulates blood pressure. Spinach burns fat and aids the transports of oxygen. Peel, cut and de-seed the watermelon and wash the spinach. Blend well and drink without straining in the morning.
Orange, carrot, and parsley drink
Oranges deliver folic acid, vitamin C, and potassium, whilst carrots are rich in vitamins B, C, D, E, and K, as well as folic acid. This aids your overall metabolism and helps satisfy cravings for sugar. Parsley contains vitamin C and K, which helps the absorption of calcium and prevents hardening of the arteries. Make a smoothie from the ingredients and drink every day.
Broccoli and pear juice
Broccoli is one of the super foods – a great source of vitamins A, C, K, folic acid, and calcium. Calcium has been shown to play an important role in weight loss. Simply wash the broccoli and pear, peel and cut into pieces, then put in a blender. Drink before meals and it will stop you from eating so much as it satisfies hunger.
Carrot, beet, celery, apple, and cucumber juice
The ingredients in this weight loss juice are 5 carrots, half a beetroot, 1 celery, 1 apple, and half a cucumber. Peel and dice all of the ingredients, wash well and put in the blender. To add extra spice you can add a small slice of ginger.
