I feel MARVELOUS! YOU will too~
1 1/2 cups of unfiltered apple juice
1 medium raw beet,chopped,steamed or baked (if using a conventiocal blender)
1 medium carrot,chopped,steamed or grated (if using a conventional blender)
2 medium lemons,peeled and seeded
1 cup loosely packed chard leaves
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 cup of frozen mango
Throw all of the ingredients(except the frozen mango) into your blender and blast on high for about 1 minute,until well combined. Add the frozen mango and balst ffor 10 to 20 seconds more,until smooth and creamy.
This vegetable-packed blend is surprisingly delicious according to Tess the author.She recommends you definitely add the mint.The betatine in beets flushes the liver,purifies the blood, and enhances circulation;carrots boost the liver’s anti-oxidant capacity and the lemons improve liver function. Chard provides syringic acid,a flavonoid that prevenst liver degeneration,and mango and ginger have liver-protecting properties,too.
I read if we partake of libations it is tough on the liver…so since I enjoy a glass of wine with my dinner meal…I tought this recipe for me is ideal. I have played with this recipe and added other ingredients. BUT I prefer HER recipe the best!
