Here’s the final juice recipe in my mini series on the health benefits of Purple Carrots.
Full of antioxidants, anthocyanins – the memory boosters that give blueberries their superfood status – soluble fibre, vitamins and minerals, this juice is a nutritional powerhouse.
The carrot greens contain protein, calcium, magnesium and potassium, the broccoli contains calcium and folate – a mood enhancer – while the sweet potato also has essential fatty acids, B vitamins and Vitamin A.
Purple carrot greens have 6 times more Vitamin C than orange ones!
See Ever Had Purple Carrots? (Juice Recipe Included) for a full nutritional breakdown and the health benefits of eating purple carrots and purple foods in general.
Perfect for an energy booster and pick-me-up!
4 Purple Carrots, scrubbed
1 Sweet Potato, scrubbed
1 Pear (the harder the better)
Small Handful Carrot Greens, washed thoroughly and chopped
1/2 Small Wax-free Lemon, scrubbed, peel left on
3″ Broccoli Stem
Begin with carrots and sweet potato, then the lemon and broccoli, lastly put the carrot greens through between pear and apple to get the most juice from them and help prevent the greens clogging the juicer.
