Ingredients:

  • 1 cup diced cucumber
  • 2 freshly squeezed medium sized lemons
  • ½ an orange
  • 3 tablespoons of finely blended ginger
  • 1 cup water

Mode of Preparation:

  • Make sure fruits and vegetables are properly washed
  • Blend ingredients until smooth
  • Serve chilled and garnish with lemon or cucumber.

PS: if you are not a big fan of lots of pulp in your drinks, go ahead and use a strainer.

  1. BLUEBERRIES AND BROCCOLI

This juice might not be the most pleasant when gulping it down but remember to keep your eye on the prize! Let’s fight diabetes!)

  • 20 blueberries
  • 10 broccoli florrets
  • 1 cup of water

  • Trim off all leaves that are attached to the stalk of the broccoli
  • Wash, don’t soak, broccoli under cool running water
  • Trim off the end of each stalk, leaving about 1 inch below the florrets
  • Put all 10 florrets into a bowl
  • Wash the blueberries thoroughly under running water
  • Remove the bloom from the berry
  • Put remains of the berries in a bowl
  • Put blueberries and broccoli florrets into a blender and add water
  • Bend till smooth
  • Serve over ice (It makes drinking a lot more pleasant.)
