Purple Wonder Juice


Purple cabbage makes a vibrant juice sweetened with dark purple grapes, adding a slice of ginger for some zing and the juice of a lime to enhance the flavour.

I have been juicing for many years and love experimenting with different fruits and vegetables.

Juicing is one way to be sure of getting your daily intake of vitamins and minerals.

Can you sit down to a plate full of raw vegetables and consume then in a couple of minutes?, maybe not, but you can consume 3 to 4 times more vegetables in the form of a juice.

Juicing is an easy way to add more servings of fruit and vegetables into your diet.

If you have a problem chewing raw vegetables juicing them is the next best thing.

If your digestion is poor juicing is easier on the body.


Starting your day or adding a fresh juice into your daily food intake has loads of benefits.

If you have days where your low on energy try a fresh juice and get energised.

Boost your immune system and nourish your cells.

Supply your body with natural vitamins and minerals.

Watch your complexion improve and your thoughts become clear.


The down side is you miss out on all the fibre. But don't worry you can take the vegetable fibre and turn it into delicious crackers add it to bread, muffins, cakes, vegetable burgers, pies and soup.


Consuming purple cabbage either in a juice or raw in salads provides you with

*iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, zinc.

*disease fighting antioxidants, vitamin C

*improves the health of your heart

*improves the health of your bones

*improves the health of your gut

*improves the health of your skin

*helps lower your blood pressure

*aids in weight loss




I have been juicing for years and people always ask me what type of juicer is the best.

The answer to that is what fits your budget and how often in a week will you be juicing. If you plan to juice a few times in a week then you are serious about it. There are so many different juicers on the market.

For me personally I consume a lot of green juice so I need a machine that is capable of juicing leafy greens, if the machine can do that it can do any fruit or vegetable.

Next I want a machine that makes cold pressed juice meaning it presses the juice without using any heat. Cold pressed juice retains all the nutrients and you get all the healthy benefits from the fruits and vegetables.

You can now purchase multi functional juicers that will not only juice but can make smoothies, plant milk drinks and frozen desserts such as sorbet.

Look for a machine that is easy to assemble and easy to clean.

If you do not own a juicer it can be made in a blender and then strained through a cloth.
