Highlighted Fruit – Kiwi Fruit
This tasty fruit is high in antioxidants containing high levels of Vitamin C and as much potassium as a banana. Remember that one of the issues we have with our modern diet is that we consume too much sodium and too little potassium. The Kiwi also has notable quantities of vitamin E and A. There are not that many sources of Omega 3 which is an essential fatty acid but the Kiwi seeds when crushed in a masticating juicer like the Oscar or the Kempo will release the alfa-linoleic acid.
As a footnote about this remarkable fruit, it is also high in fibre.
- 1/2 Pineapple
- 4 Apples
- 1 Mango – peeled
- 2 Kiwi fruits
- A handful of strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- Add the extracted juice and blend gently together
P.S. It is important to use the blended fruit to include the fibre to assist in the slow release of sugars.
