Based on a recipe from Stephanie Tourles’ book, Raw Energy. She says, “Drink this daily for two weeks and I guarantee that your youthful vitality will spring forth once again. Your cells utilize the health benefits of this yummy ‘salad in a glass’ almost immediately. If you consume an acid-producing diet (as most Americans do), heavy in meat, dairy, coffee, soda, and refined carbohydrates, then this is the drink for you. It will help to alkalize and normalize the body’s chemistry.” A good source of: balanced vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin C, beta-carotene, folic acid, potassium, magnesium, calcium, silicon, and sodium. I recommend making this in a juicer like the Vitamix or the Jack LaLanne for the sturdy veggies and a blender to incorporate the tomato. NOTE: the recipe states “stalks” when referring to the celery and I like to stick with the published terminology as much as possible; I use the term “rib” for a single stick of celery because I only use 4 ribs in this recipe.

Directions

  1. Juice all the vegetables together.
  2. Stir well, then serve by pouring into glasses.
  3. To your health!

I did use my Vitamix to make this juice and it was blended perfectly. My DH loves V8 juice but this tasted fresher and lighter! Used a yellow pepper and half of one large English cucumber. I added a bit of freshly ground black pepper to my glass, so good, and DH wants to make this again. Made and reviewed for the Australian/NewZealand Forums Recipe Swap #73.
