jungle juice + almond milk = gorilla juice


April 8, 2014 by shitpetesays

I thought I’d start my first post in my ‘happy, healthy living and eating’ series with a bang…King Kong style!

It’s a powerful lean muscle builder and provides huge amounts of natural energy/fuel for your body. Ideal for pre and post workout drinks. I’ve made some slight changes to the original recipe which adds even more nutritional value and improves the taste.

1 cup of RAW almonds (not roasted)
3 cups of water
1 teaspoon of Pink Himalayan Rock Salt (full of nutritious minerals)

OR buy a good quality, organic almond milk from your local

1 – Place almonds in a large bowl and soak in the 3 cups of water and salt for about 24 hours
2 – Try to rinse the almonds every 6 or so hours, readding 3 cups of water each time – this method helps to draw out the vital enzymes needed to penetrate your cells with the goodness of this juice
3 – After about 24 hours, put in blender/food processor (along with 1 cup of water to begin with, slowly adding more as required) and turn into a milk. You may find you have sand sized almonds left in the mixture – personally, I keep it this way, adding texture to the drink and ensuring I dont lose any nutritional value. If you’d like it to be liquid only, then just pour through a very fine strainer and only keep the milk.

4 Kale leaves
1 bunch of spinach
1 bunch of parsley
5-7 celery sticks
2 granny smith apples
1/2 a cucumber
1/2 a head of broccoli
2 slices of pineapple (optional for sweetness)



Cut the ingredients into a manageable size for your juicer, then juice them all together.

A cold press juicer is always your best option – try to avoid centrifugal juicers as you’ll achieve inferior results with a lower juice yield and a less nutritional juice all round with less of the vital enzymes.

The plug: I get very low prices on top brand slow juicers so just comment below if you’re interested

Either make your own from a real coconut and it’s flesh or buy a good quality, pre-made one (Cocobella (@drinkcocobella) is good) – Josie loves it!

Add an even ratio of each of the above to a blender along with some chia seeds and LSA mix (this will thinken it up), blend and serve as cold as possible.

You can even try adding kefir if you like 🙂

Here’s a video from the creators of the original
