My favourite recipe from Kara Rosen's excellent book Plenish: Juices to Boost, Cleanse and Heal, this is a green juice in disguise. Packed with flavonoids, phytochemicals, calcium, vitamins A and C to strengthen the cardiovascular system and regulate blood pressure, Heart Healthy Hero Juice is smooth and sweet.
If you're thinking, 'But I hate broccoli/spinach/beetroot/celery...' – the recipe is so perfectly balanced that no one flavour dominates, and it's an ideal way to get the nutritional benefits of produce you might not usually choose to eat.
As many of the ingredients are included in the Dirty Dozen, I decided to buy everything organic and pass the pulp through the machine twice to extract as much juice as possible.
2 Cups of Spinach
1/4 Cup of Parsley
3 Florets of Broccoli
5 Sticks of Celery
In the order listed above, pass the ingredients through a juicer.
