Generally we’re not fans of fruit juice so it’s rare that we include them in our recipes but it’s not a problem to include it in your diet every once in a while. In particular, apple juice is said to potentially carry some interesting health benefits as it may help to combat some pretty nasty illnesses such as Alzheimer’s Disease,  Asthma and even Cancer. Just make sure you choose an apple juice with is not from concentrate with no added sugar.

Kiwi fruit is an awesome little nutrition bomb with loads of health benefits, for example, it’s full of fibre so is great for digestive health and it’s packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants so helps to boost the immune system. One other important benefit is that it’s low on the Glycemic Index so won’t cause so much of a sugar rush like most other fruits.

Ingredients

  • 250 ml pressed apple juice (no added sugar, not from concentrate)
  • 1 sliced kiwi fruit
  • 75g banana
  • 50g frozen strawberries
  • 1 tsp honey

Tips & Alternatives

We’ve included frozen banana and strawberries but you could pretty much go with any frozen fruit. Using frozen fruit, or even plain old ice, adds volume and will help you feel fuller more quickly so it’s a great technique for anyone looking to drop a few pounds.
