At Natural Health Forever we make juices in a blender to retain all the nutrients. You will need a high speed blender and it’s best to add the ingredients bit by bit with some water so the blender doesn’t get stuck. You can also juice the vegetables and then add these to a blender with the lime, avocado, parsley and spinach if you prefer your juices smoother.
Each month this year, the Natural Health Forever blog will focus on a different area of health. During March the focus will be on skin health. We will look into the benefits of dry body brushing, exfoliating scrubs & masks, magnesium salt baths, skin detox baths and each week will provide a skin health recipe including a body scrub, juice, smoothie and salad recipe.
