This purple power juice may look pretty but it is also insanely healthy!
This juice is actually quite deceiving. You may look at it, see it is a pretty purple color, and think “what a sweet, purple juice.” But this juice is not sweet or subtle at all.
In fact, it is packed with vitamins, minerals, and an incredibly powerful flavor of fruits and veggies. This is an amazing drink for serious juicers only!
What is in Purple Power Juice?
We have packed some seriously delicious and healthy ingredients into our homemade purple juice. You are going to take a sip and immediately feel invigorated. Let us tell you a little more about what goes into our purple power juice and the fruit and vegetables that make it so great.
Not many people think to throw cabbage into their morning juice but it is an amazingly healthy way to start off your day. The cabbage juice benefits are endless!
Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin K and also loaded with more vitamin C than an orange (move over orange juice, there is a new morning drink in town!).
Cabbage has also been shown to help improve your digestion, keep inflammation in check, and also may lower blood pressure. Sounds like a great ingredient to add to your juice mix!
Raw cabbage has a slightly peppery taste that is actually quite delicious in a juice. It gives this purple juice a nice little kick for flavor, making a generally sweet drink into something special.
However, cabbage basically just takes on the flavor of anything you pair it with.
Cucumbers are quite low in calories but have several important vitamins and minerals. They also have antioxidants that help rid the body of free radicals that are known to be harmful. Cucumbers are primarily water so they help keep you hydrated.
We love the fresh taste that cucumbers add to the purple juice. They are mild, sweet, and help make the juice the perfect texture.
Blueberries are up there on the list of healthiest fruits in the world. They are packed with antioxidants and are considered a superfood. Blueberries are low in calories, high in fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin K.
Not only are blueberries extremely beneficial to any diet, but they also taste incredible. Blueberries are super sweet when ripe. They also add great purple color to our power drink!
Adding an apple to our purple juice makes the mix more juicy. Apples give off a lot of liquid when juiced. The juice is also mild, sweet and healthy. It’s a total win!
A little bit of lemon juice adds a nice acidic flavor to the juice. Lemon juice brings out the sweetness of the berries and brightens the purple power juice. It is also an excellent source of vitamin C.
As you can see as you look over the ingredients in our purple power juice, there are a lot of nutrients packed into each glass. From cabbage juice to fresh blueberry juice, this drink is loaded with everything you need to make your body feel good.
"our purple juice tastes mostly like fresh blueberries and apples - yum!"
