Consuming cruciferous vegetables on a regular basis has been linked to helping support natural liver detoxification and reducing the risk of developing certain cancers. But many people may not love the taste of some of these gems (think broccoli, cauliflower, radish, cabbage, brussels sprouts, kale) or may think that drinking foods like cabbage or broccoli in juice is just plain weird. Here’s a way you can hide broccoli while still reaping its many benefits. This juice is perfect for novice juicers, kids or cruciferous nay-sayers. The sweet flavor and bright orange and red color of strawberries and carrots help mask the pungency of the broccoli stalk. But those berries and carrots don’t just give a pretty color to this juice, they lend their own beneficial nutrients like vitamin C, ellagic acid and beta-carotene.
