Cleansing Kale Cranberry Pomegranate Juice
This cleansing kale cranberry pomegranate juice from Ricki Heller has fabulous festive flavor, but also powerful detox properties via the kale (which encourages the liver to excrete toxins and also provides minerals, vitamins and fiber); heart-healthy antioxidants (punicalagins) in the pomegranate and proanthocyanidins from cranberries; and anti-inflammatory agents from the ginger.
The Health Benefits of Kale Juice
With highly absorbable calcium (thanks to a high ratio of calcium to phosphorous) kale juice surpasses milk, cup for cup, in calcium provision. Rich in phyto-chemicals that combat free radicals, kale can lower the risk of colon, breast and lung cancers, as well as fight osteoporosis, macular degeneration, support the cardiovascular and immune systems, and assist in energy production. This mighty leafy green contains lots of chlorophyll, vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids and beta-carotene), vitamins C, E, B6, and K, folic acid, iron, potassium, magnesium, zinc, and sodium.
As a warming vegetable, kale’s a natural for a balancing cooler food. And juicing is a great way to enjoy it in its raw glory, as its flavor is less bitter, relative to that of uncooked kale eaten whole. Still, kale’s kale—which is to say intense; the juice is best blended. It pairs with a wide range of fruits and vegetables, from apple, lemon, carrot and pineapple to tomato, cucumber and melon. Kale makes a good substitute for spinach in any of these juices, but will bring in its slightly bitter sharp note. Juice it stalk and all, and enjoy your new friend with benefits.
