Just looking at this juice makes me feel healthier. This fresh zingy juice is bursting with vitamins and minerals and will certainly awaken your taste buds.

green juiceI’ll break it down for you on why kale, pear, cucumber, lemon and basil make such a killer combo.

Adding kale to anything instantly affirms high nutritional value. It is one of the most nutritious greens filled with vitamins A, B6, K, calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc. It is a must add in the majority of my green concoctions.

Pears are rich in natural fruit sugars and offer enough sweetness without being overpowering, while also acting as natural diuretic. They are a great alternative to apples and a great source of fiber, vitamin B2, C, E, copper, and potassium.

Cucumbers add a refreshing element to any juice along with the benefits of conventional antioxidants, electrolytes, vitamin B, C, K, maganese, and flavonoids. I like to add them to my smoothies too, to up the water content.

Lemons add a sharp boost, loads of vitamin C, calcium, potassium, and pectin fiber. All of which help with stimulating the digestive system and flushing out toxins.

Basil is one of my favourite inflammation reducing herbs. It protects the brain, liver, and heart from free radical damage and also keeps things interesting flavour wise. Don’t be shy and experiment with other herbs as well, my go to’s are basil, parsley, mint and cilantro. You will be surprised how delicious adding herbs can be.

There you have it; one delicious juice, five simple ingredients, and multiple benefits. What are you waiting for, get juicing! πŸ™‚
