The Purple Juice


Hi Guys,


Now I know this post is not going to be a favourite for everyone! We often have really good chats on the FB page about boost style juices and in the end my love of putting something green into mine… and Meg’s hate for it! I love it! To me the secret to life is Kale. If I don’t use Kale I use baby spinach as it’s just a bit more gentle in taste then Kale. Now my hubby will drink anything! Some of the concoctions I have come up with, I have taken a sip and admitted defeat while he downs it and gives me a funny look and wonders what he has just stomached!


Yesterday I tried a new blend. I loved it! It’s got a bit of a tang to it, Mr 2. Told me it was ‘Yucky, I don’t like it’ but went on to drink most of it. Miss 4 enjoyed it and hubby drank it and later complained it was not as good as the usual one. So here it is – would LOVE your feedback on this one and tell us your green / purple / boost juice.



1 Lemon Peeled (no pith) 1/4’s

1 Pear Peeled and 1/4’s

60g Blueberries (Fresh or frozen) I used frozen and it’s really just a good handful of them.

200g Cranberry Juice (Store brought)

2 stalks / leaves of Kale Washed and ripped up roughly

1/2 Glass of Ice

1 Glass of  Cold Water



  1. Add all ingredients except the Cold water to the TM and blitz on speed 9 for 1 minute.
  2. Add Cold water and Mix on speed 8 for 20 seconds
  3. Serve and drink straight away.



  • The juice will go a touch sour if you leave it for too long. Definitely one to drink straight away.
  • You can switch the Kale for Baby Spinach




Lemon is a bit of a superfood! It’s a great source of both Vitamin B and C. Contains Proteins, Carbohydrates, Phosphorus and antioxidants. Is a great way to wake up the liver and flush toxins in the morning.

Lemon is said to be an anti-carcinogenic food, they can aid in the production of antibodies in the blood stream.


One for the girls here! High in antioxidants. Believed to help with urinary tract infections and women health issues. Also a good one for teeth as it is believed to help prevent plaque.

Cranberry is also considered to be an anti-carcinogenic food. Also believed to help with cholesterol levels.


Considered a “Superfood”.

Helps your body detox naturally.

Said to also have anti-carcnogenic properties.

“Kale is very high in beta carotenevitamin Kvitamin Cluteinzeaxanthin, and reasonably rich in calcium. Kale, as with broccoli and other brassicas, contains sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or minced), a chemical with potent anti-cancer properties”.(Wickipedia –



Very popular in Japan for the benefits to vision that they are called “the vision fruit”

The antioxidant level in half a cup is the equivalent to 2 and a half cups of spinach.

Helps to keep you “young” they are said to improve your short term memory loss as you age 🙂

Again said to have anti-carcenogenic properties.


NOTE – whilst all care is given when putting nutritional information onto the post. The reality is I am not a doctor nor a scientist. I know what tastes good and makes me feel good after I drink it! If for nothing else I like to think that I am giving my body a dose of the good stuff 🙂
