Project Description

Boost your immune system with this vibrant juice packed with vitamin c & delicious flavors.


It seems like there’s always some kind of cabbage in my fridge yet, I don’t feel like I eat it a lot! Cabbage is one of those vegetables where you rarely use the whole thing, then are left with lots you don’t know what to do with. This is where this juice comes in nicely and refreshingly.

There are lots of other recipes that involve cabbage-like slaw, kraut, salad, soups, or bowls, so don’t worry if you don’t want to drink it.

I have never tried this juice with green cabbage or any other cabbage, and I wouldn’t recommend it. Red cabbage has a deliciously high amount of both vitamin C and K.

The deep purple color is a sign of its unique antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

When red cabbage is mixed with lemon and cucumber, it’s like a flavor bomb of vitamin c, so packed with vitamins to strengthen your immune system.

And pear, carrot and ginger all have antioxidants too! This juice has a good balance of sweetness and would be good with even less pear, depends how sweet you’re feeling.
