I created this jump start your morning juice blend when I was on the Reboot Plan (raw juicing regime) a couple of months ago. I was new to raw juicing and fascinated by the stand-alone taste of crudites to determine what flavors blend well. I was surprised at how sweet green cabbage juice was when I tried it solo. My guess was that purple cabbage juice would be equally as sweet…it was! This combination of a purple cabbage, pineapple and grapes is energizing and refreshing, not to mention the health benefits…enjoy.
Purple Passion Juice
½ medium raw purple cabbage cut into chucks
½ medium fresh pineapple cut into chucks (discard the top and outside skin)
2 cups red or black seedless grapes
Feed cabbage, pineapple, and grapes into a juice extractor. I use the Jack LaLanne Power Juicer. After all the fruit is juiced, chill the mixture in a glass jar before serving. Yields about 24-32 ounces of juice. Should be consumed in 24-48 hours. The pulp extractions are great for compost.
By the way, if you haven’t seen Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, I highly recommend it. It’s available on Netflix or for free on http://www.hulu.com/watch/289122/fat-sick-and-nearly-dead
