Carrot, Radish & Tomato Juice
A simple vegetable juice recipe for a busy mid-weekday. When I saw these cute looking red radishes at Bollywood Veggies (picture below), I couldn’t resist buying some. Finally decided to make fruit juice out of them because it’s easy and also nutritious. One seldom see radishes being added in a fruit juice and I guess it’s because their taste can be quite sharp & spicy when consumed raw. The trick is not to add too many radishes, and blend them with cherry tomatoes and carrots as their natural sweetness will balance out the overall taste.
Beautiful red radishes I bought from Bollywood Veggies – so fresh they still have their leaves on
According to this site, “Radishes can be beneficial to our health as they are sources of Potassium, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Iron sulphur and Amylase. Radish juice has been used for treating skin conditions, asthma and sinus problems.” I just think that it is yummy, so when it’s also healthy, I think that’s a great bonus ;)
(Makes 1 glass about 250 ml)

– 15 cherry tomatoes (can substitute with normal tomatoes)

1. Just blend everything in a fruit juice extractor and consume as soon as possible.
