5 Simple Juicing Recipes For Colds That Taste Great
The sad fact is that there is still no cure for the common cold. While there is no cure, there is a way you can power through the cold and even reduce the amount of time it takes to get better.
By juicing you can give your immune system the boost it needs to kick your cold to the curb, put the box of tissues away, and get up out of bed. Here are some of the best juicing recipes for fighting colds.
Vitamin C Is Your Friend
If you want to reduce your cold symptoms then you get some vitamin C in your system. Vitamin C is known for its cold fighting abilities. Think back to every time you have been sick. Suddenly it makes sense why your parents wanted you to drink lots of orange juice.
While juicing holds tons of benefits, do0n’t forget other natural remedies, solutions and cures for the cold or flu.
An excellent solution is elderberry syrup. It has consistently had better results with flu and colds than any known pharmaceutical on the market today…including vaccines (flu shots).
Pomegranate, Lemon, & Kale
If you do not want to pour gallon after gallon of orange juice into your system then this is the recipe for you. Pomegranate juice offers a nice, fragrant flavor. The lemon juice in this recipe will reinforce the vitamin C you take in while the kale will let you get in the nutrients from greens.
1 Large Pomegranate
1 Bunch of freshly chopped kale
If you are new to juicing and can’t quite get over the bitter taste of kale, many you should take a look at spinach and it’s benefits. Spinach mixes well with almost anything and is easy for kids to handle quite easily.
Pineapple Pear & Peach
This may seem like a tropical style punch, but it’s a really a tropical punch to your cold’s metaphorical face. This powerful juice is especially helpful at lowering inflammation. The Pear content is also loaded with anti-oxidants which can be a major boost to your immune system.
Blackberry Kiwi Pear
As previously mentioned, pears are jam packed with antioxidants. Kiwi is also a tremendous booster for immunity, enhancing the strengths of your immune system that are already there.
1 Cup Blackberry
Orange You Tired Of The Cold?
Ginger is a great anti-inflammatory and oranges are loaded with vitamin C. If you’re looking for something to kick your cold in the teeth, here you go.
- 3 carrots, peeled if not organic
- 1 pineapple, peeled and cored
- 4 oranges, peeled

Lemon Ginger Burn
Ginger and turmeric share some amazing health benefits and are totally worth juicing, but this juice is stout enough it needs a little raw honey to cut the sour heat.

- 1 inch or more of ginger
- 1 tablespoon of ground turmeric
- Black pepper
