Purple cabbage doesn't come to mind when thinking of a delicious juice to make for your little ones, but you'd be surprised at how delicious it is.



Purple cabbage juice is a natural detox drink. It helps to clean the liver, but more importantly it is rich in cancer-fighting vitamin K. It is also rich in minerals, such as calcium and potassium, choline, iodine, phosphorous, sodium and sulphur. The sulphur in cabbage helps destroy ferments in the blood. Vitamins A, B and C are found in cabbage, so it's ore of a wonder food than people give the cuciferous vegetable credit.

Whilst kids aren't too keen on cooked cabbage, and can turn away at the sight of it, raw cabbage and raw cabbage juice both relieve and heal any kind of gastrointestinal ulcer - perfect if your son or daughter loves to experiment with food, and eats something they're not supposed to!

The colour makes it 'fun', and when I tested this drink on my nephew, stuck a straw in, he simply thanked me and carried on playing.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients
1 Lime
2 pieces of ginger
3 Apples (any variety)
Half a purple cabbage

Required ingredients


Method
Wash all of the ingredients and chop into juicing-sized pieces.



Push the cabbage through the juicer first. It will produce a deep purple juice.



Process the rest of the ingredients.



A lot of 'foam' will be produced on top, this can be discarded.

Bright purple juice will be the result in the bottom of the juice compartment



Pour into glasses and drink immediately.



It is quite a 'pretty' drink, and kids love colour, but this goes down especially well with boys. My nephew told me this drink was 'cool', which was great.



Feel free to use another, or two more apples if you prefer it slightly sweeter. Do not compromise on the amount of cabbage because it is a key element of this juice, and is a great way of getting nutrients into your son or daughter's little body.

Do try to use purple/'red' cabbage in this recipe, instead of substituting with green because the level of vitamin C of red cabbage is six to eight times higher than that of green cabbage. Happy juicing.
