Plum Surprise – Energy Boosting Plum JuicePosted by Cher Fauvel on Oct 17, 2013 in Juices & Smoothies | 10 comments
Plum Surprise – this juice is gorgeous, I called it plum surprise because that is definitely how it got me – by surprise! I bought some organic plums just because I know their benefits, not because I particularly like them – oh surprise – now I love them!
I usually like to eat my fruit and Juice my veggies, but I don’t really like to eat plums so Juice it would be.
My thinking was on plums and apples, excellent for cleansing, and maybe a little sprinkling of something? Well my plum surprise was just that, more plums on the shopping list then!
The last house I was in had fabulous plum trees – Humph!
- 2 apples
- 6 plums (stoned)
- 1/2 teaspoon of Cacao powder
- sprinkle of cinnamon
Juice apples and plums, add the Cacao powder, give a little stir and sprinkle with Cinnamon.
If you prefer a smoothie, a nut milk can be added or if you don’t mind yogurt, live yogurt is a great option to boost gut flora.
Plum Surprise Benefits
You will have heard me talk of apples many times, they are always included in my juices for their cleansing benefits – they do an amazing job of sweeping the intestines clean as well as giving a lovely flavor to our juices.
The Plum is loaded with antioxidants to mop up harmful free radicals.
Lots of potassium, an essential mineral for the body to work in balance as well as for growth and recovery.
Vitamins – A, C, K & beta carotene – and much more.
There have been many studies done on the health benefits of plums and prunes, they are often referred to as a super food and known as a top health food.
If that isn’t enough, they help produce serotonin, and give us an energy boost, along with the happy food raw cacao, what more could we want?
I enjoyed my Plum Surprise and it is definitely going up in the favorites list
