Preparation

 

Many people think adding vegetables to juices and smoothies will lead to a sour or savoury taste- but trust me these juices are super sweet and a great way to quickly get in some of your 5 a day.

 

When it comes to meeting our “5-a-day” many people focus solely on fruits- where the high amounts of sugar can sometimes be unhelpful within dieting- therefore juicing vegetables is the ideal way to meet your requirements of vitamins and minerals- especially if you’re not a vegetable lover.

Chop all your vegetables, making sure to remove pips etc. You can use a juicer to make this juice, or you could even add Greek yogurt and soy milk to make a smoothie instead.

 

Juice or blend all your ingredients and enjoy!
