Mixed Salad a in a Glass

A wonderfully bright and colourful assortment of ingredients to make ....

A delicious and healthy mixed salad drink from Juices & Smoothies, page 84.  Even though there was a lot of vegetables in this drink, like radishes which I usually don't love, the added pears really made this drink surprisingly sweet and tasty.

Some health benefits I learned about ... Radishes
  • Good for the liver and the stomach
  • Indigestible carbohydrates in radishes help with constipation, which also make them a good detoxifier
  • Diurectic in nature ... they help you go pee!
  • Radishes are filling to eat, which can help with weight loss
  • They contain Vitamin-C, phosphorus, zinc and members of vitamin-B complex
  • Radishes are especially helpful with liver and gallbladder functions
