Avocado and Pear Juice Drink Recipe

‘Ave Go’

This combination of juice and smoothie gets much of its cleansing properties from the pear.

Pears are rich in pectin, a soluble fibre that not only improves the body’s elimination of cholesterol but also helps stimulate the large bowel and prevent constipation.

Ginger has a specific cleansing effect through its stimulation of the peripheral circulation and overall improvement of blood flow. This helps remove waste material so it can be transported to the kidneys and excreted in urine.

The live bacteria in the yoghurt improve bowel function and elimination, and the overall cleansing effect of lemon juice rounds everything off.

Vital statistics

Vitamin E is provided by the avocado and is essential for maintaining the healthy structure of blood vessels. The gingerols and zingiberene from the ginger are the natural ingredients that stimulate the circulation. Add to this the cleansing properties of the sulphur compounds in garlic and the high concentration of citric acid in lemon juice, and you have a tasty and satisfying smoothie.
