Ingredients

  • 2 firm pears
  • 1/4 large pineapple
  • 1 cm cube of ginger
  • Ice

 

Instructions

  • Juice the pears, pineapple and ginger by packing the ginger between the other produce. 
  • Pour over ice and enjoy

 

Why this is good for you

Pear juice is lovely and thick and naturally sweet, so this juice will fill you up whilst satisfying your sweet taste buds. Pears also contain pectin, a soluble fibre the can help the body flush out toxins.

This juice provides a good source of vitamin C and copper, which both help protect cells from free-radical damage. Vitamin C is critical for good immune function and stimulates white cells to fight infection, directly killing many bacteria and viruses.

What’s more, pineapple contains bromelain, an enzyme that aids digestion, so this juice will be very easily digested, allowing the body more energy for other activities such as weight loss.
