Jon Cartu Affirm: Easy Wellness Shot Recipes You Can Make at Home

You know life’s busy when french fries become your main source of vegetables and you’ll do anything for a hearty kale salad instead. Between work meetings, birthday parties, and a crazy travel schedule, you may be desperate enough to spend $12 on a fancy wellness shot at your local juicery just to feel good. Do your wallet a favor and get your boost of antioxidants, fiber, hydration, and vitamins for a third of the cost with some DIY recipes instead.

We’ve enlisted the help of Maya Feller, RD, of Brooklyn-based Maya Feller Nutrition, to ensure you’re balancing out your diet in a feasible, convenient, and delicious way — even while on the go. Check out the recipes ahead!

Lemon Ginger Cucumber

“Ginger has some anti-inflammatory activity, and lemons are antioxidant-rich, while whole cucumbers are a nice source of both fiber and hydration,” Feller explained.

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 small cucumber with skin on

Place all ingredients into a high-powered blender, and blend on high for 60 seconds.

Beet Carrot

According to Feller, you get a nutrient-rich mix of vitamins A and C, plus fiber from the beet greens, root, and carrots.

Ingredients:

  • 1 small washed and peeled beet
  • 3 leaves of well-washed beet greens (the whole beet including the root and greens)
  • 1 small unpeeled carrot

Place all ingredients into a high-powered blender with 1/4 cup water, and blend on high for 60 seconds.

Apple Turmeric

The sweet apples are tempered by the flavor of turmeric, which offers a nice dose of antioxidants, Feller said.

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium apple with skin
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh turmeric (if you can’t find fresh turmeric, use 1/2 teaspoon dried)

Place ingredients into a high-powered blender on high for 60 seconds.
