Kale, Pear and Kiwi Juice
This time of shifting seasons gives us an opportunity for rebirth and new beginnings. We emerge from the winter and welcome the longer days and vibrant spring energy around us. Our diet can also reflect the graceful transition of seasons, as we step by step start reintroducing more raw foods and help our bodies eliminating toxins accumulated over the past winter months. Juices are a fantastic way of supporting gentle cleansing of our digestive system and reviving our body. March is also a time when all the bounty of spring ingredients hasn’t arrived just yet, but there are still plenty of pears, kiwis and kale around, and it is therefore with this in mind that I came up with this very simple juice recipe.
A juicer (slow-running, if possible) is required to prepare this juice, however, if you don’t own one, you could transform it into a smoothie by adding a bit of plant milk and blending it in a high-speed blender until smooth.
