If you’re wanting to ease into the dark leafy green juices, this is a lovely place to start. This sweet green juice has heaps of benefits:
- It’s high in vitamin C
- The lemon helps to improve the absorption of the non-heme iron in spinach
- There are 7.1mg of iron
- The bromelain from the pineapple may ease arthritis, prevent some types of cancer, atherosclerosis and it may also help to prevent and treat cardiovascular diseases due to its ability to inhibit Fibrinogen, the chemical that can cause the abnormal blood clotting that underlies most cardiovascular diseases.

If you need another reason to try this drink, it tastes so sweet and refreshing too! Enjoy!
