A Juicy Margarita

Looking for a festive juice that’s full of antioxidants and other immune supportive compounds?  This vibrant green juice tastes tart and also has a bit of protein thanks to the broccoli stalk.  Broccoli is a great juice ingredient and as a cruciferous veggie can help support the liver’s natural detoxification processes. If you want a healthier base to mix alcohol for your next celebration, try adding 1.5-2 oz of tequila, vodka or a spirit of your choice to this juice.  You could even salt the rim of the glass for an authentic feel that’s about one-third of the calories!  Not only will your waistline thank you, but the influx of vitamin C, B vitamins, and minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus will fill you up with nutrients.
