Start Your Day With Cactus Juice!

I love to start the day with a fresh, organic juice blend. One of my favorite ingredients for my juice concoctions is the prickly pear. The prickly pear cactus bears a delicious, bright pink fruit that contains magnesium, vitamin C, potassium, and calcium

The following juice blend is packed full of other healthy ingredients as well. Kale provides vitamin A, vitamin K, and vitamin B6; lemon for flavonoids and detoxification; and broccoli stems that contain B vitamins, calcium, and phytochemicals.
 
Ingredients

(I recommend using organic versions of all items listed.) 
  • ½ large cucumber
  • 3 stalks kale
  • 1 broccoli stem
  • ½ apple
  • 1 prickly pear, peeled
  • ½ small lemon
Directions

Juice all ingredients and enjoy!
