(Please read to the end, there’s a special video feature for anyone interested in juicing).
As you know, I love juiced sweet potato, so forgive me for posting another one! Sweet potato on its own is so full of nutrients – vitamins including betacarotene, minerals, fibre, essential fatty acids – but combined with the carrot, broccoli, spinach and avocado, this blended juice packs quite a nutritional punch.
The apples add soluble fibre and all the fruit is high in vitamin C.
The broccoli and spinach are good sources of bio accessible calcium.
The avocado also provides protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, and contributes to a more satisfying, satiating juice.
These nutrient-packed, versatile fruit are very good for your skin, heart, eyes and regulating blood sugar levels. They fill you up so you don’t eat as much. I have some avocado at least once a day. It is one of those foods you could live off if you were stuck on a desert island (though when you were rescued you’d probably never want to see one again!).
This juice is high in antioxidants, helping to boost your immune system and ward off those winter viruses.
Metal straws protect your teeth when drinking juices, they are reuseable, can go in the dishwasher and don’t end up in landfill – and they’re not made of plastic, so no nasty chemicals. You can find them on Amazon, the ones I have came with their own tiny cleaning brush.

Jay Kordich is known as the Father of Juicing. As a very young and athletic man he was diagnosed with terminal bladder cancer. He chose to work with doctors who specialised in juice therapy. He is still alive today at the age of 93. This is his first video lecture fom 30 years ago on how to juice. I learn something from him every time I see him.
Please note he is using organic produce and using the skins. Please be sure to wash your produce thoroughly and consult your doctor if you are taking medications.

Just watched the video, it’s brilliant, thank you for sharing! I learned a lot – won’t be peeling pineapples or picking grapes off their stems anymore! Also interesting about not mixing fruit and vegetables apart from apples. I recently did the Jason Vale 3 day juice cleanse (on your recommendation!) and he sometimes has pineapples and beetroots mixed during that one. Maybe opinions on what can be mixed have changed since this video was made?
Yes I noticed that too. I had already cut out pineapple as I discovered I was allergic to it and this year have been cutting down the fruit to reach the optimum 80% veg 20% fruit ratio. As a longterm juicer I really should be a grown-up about not needing sweet juices! Anyway, I realised on doing this that I no longer have any bloating when I don’t mix fruits and veg. I have longterm digestive probs from longterm meds that I no longer take, so this may not be a problem for most people. I know that Jason comes under some criticism from certain quarters about the amount of fruit in his cleansing programs but I actually agree that you have to get people juicing and carry on juicing, if they hate the taste of the juice first off they are never going to do it again. The idea is, you start juicing, get used to it and then gradually cut down on the amount of fruit in them.
Re juicing pineapples: be sure you have a juicer that can manage the peel, and also be sure they are organic. Similarly, grapes are among the most sprayed crops so try to use organic and wash thoroughly. So pleased, you watched the video, he and his wife are lovely people and offer free advice and recipes via their FB page. ☺️

Thanks once again for all the great advice! I must admit I prefer vegetable juices too, and did find the juice cleanse much sweeter than what I’m used to, although I felt and still feel good after it. And thanks for reminding me about organic grapes, we used to live right by a vineyard in Bordeaux and the amount of times each year they would come and spray the grapes was scary!
☺️ Thanks for the feedback, I love hearing from you.
