Ginger-apple broccoli juice recipe

By Lisa Brant | 14th November 2017
This is our Ginger-apple broccoli juice made at La Crisalida health and wellbeing Retreat in Albir Spain.

We all use the florets of broccoli, but did you know you can use the stem to create broccoli juice? This month’s ginger-apple broccoli juice is a great way of using up broccoli stems, tied in with the flavours of zingy ginger and a hint of sweetness provided by the apple.

Broccoli is a fantastic vegetable to regularly include in your diet as it is high in vitamins K and A, both of which help the absorption of vitamin D into our bodies. It also contains high levels of vitamin C and scientific studies have shown a regular intake can help reduce the chances of developing cancer, due to its anti-oxidant properties.

Calories: 139

Ingredients
1 pear
1 apple
2cm broccoli stem

Method
To make the juice, assemble all of your ingredients. Give them a good wash in cold running water. There is no need to peel anything, unless your lemon is waxed (in which case cut off the outer skin of the lemon, leaving the pith behind).

Wash your juicer, then enjoy your juice!
