Health benefits: This is a fantastic digestive tonic, which is light, refreshing, easy to make, packed with nutrition & delicious! Celery & cucumber assist with digestion. Mint is a beneficial digestive tonic, helping to relieve bloating and flatulence and is useful in conditions like irritable bowel syndrome. The juice is alkaline, the lime adds immune boosting Vitamin C, and as a bonus celery and cucumber help regulate blood pressure.
I make my juices in a blender to retain all the nutrients and add ice to stop important enzymes being damaged by the heat generated by the blender.
