Some of my favorite juice recipes come from using leftover and extra (though still ripe) produce in my refrigerator. In my experience, using produce that I already have in my kitchen yields tasty and nutritionally-rich juices that are often more creative in their combinations. When making new and creative juice combinations it’s important to stick to a mostly vegetable (80% vegetable, 20% fruit) base, using a smaller proportion of fruit simply for enhanced taste to keep with a smaller proportion of fruit for enhanced taste.
This flavorful juice is packed with immune-boosting, antioxidant, and digestive properties thanks to its rich source of vitamin C coming from the tomatoes, the lime and lemon, the pear, and the berries. And additionally, this juice also contains both bone-healthy calcium from the arugula and water-soluble, digestion-promoting fiber from the pear.
