Anti-oxidant Power Juice Recipe: ‘Pimary pepper punch’

A juice to take on a regular basis. Don’t be put off if you find green peppers acidic and indigestible: ripe red and yellow peppers are deliciously sweet and succulent. What’s more, they combine beautifully with the other vegetables to make this a cocktail with a difference. You’ll obtain ultimate antioxidant power from the massive dose of beta-carotenes and other carotenoids that colour these vibrant vegetables.

Carrots 2, unpeeled; unless organic, remove top and bottom

beetroot 1 small, unpeeled, with leaves

Celery 1 stick, with leaves

yellow pepper ½, deseeded

red pepper ½, deseeded

 

Vital statistics:

super-rich in beta-carotene, vitamins A and C, folic acid and potassium. The iron-rich beet tops help prevent anaemia, so this is a primary Power Juice for women. It’s also a real pollution-fighter that declares war on the damaging free radicals present in our environment, so it’s especially good for city-dwellers. Of course, there are internal pollutants, too, and if you must smoke, this colourful cocktail will at least give you some increased protection against lung cancer.
