A lot of our regular juices are, unsurprisingly, frequent exercisers. Immediate effect of exercise include improvements in mood, heart health and clearer skin.


Beetroot has been proven to increase stamina and powder during workout, helping you to exercise more efficiently. Mixed with a bit of kick from the ginger, and cucumber and greens, this is like an energy boost in a glass and is perfect for pre-exercise stamina.

You will need:
  • 2 cups Beetroot (washed, trimmed and chopped)
  • 2 cups Kale
  • 2 cups Spinach
  • 5 cm (2in) piece fresh root ginger (unpeeled)
  • 2 cups cucumber (chopped)


This is an extremely satisfying juice for any time of the day, but especially after a workout. It's a beautiful deep green colour too. If you are making this juice in advance, make sure to shake it vigorously, as the chia seeds will clump at the bottom. The coconut water and chia are chock-full of protein and electrolytes - vital minerals such as sodium, potassium and magnesium that can be lost through sweating. The chlorophyll-rich greens also help eliminate any lactic acid build-up. 

In a juicer add:
  • 3 cups Chard
  • 3 cups COS Lettuce
  • 2 cups Broccoli pieces (florets and stems)
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • a pinch of Himalayan salt

Et voila!
