Low Sugar Seasonal Citrus Juice

I love making fresh, seasonal and great tasting juices that are low in sugar. While fresh fruit provides the healthy type of sugars, too much of a good thing is not great, especially for anyone at risk or with type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance or prediabetes.  Creating your juices following the 80/20 guideline is best practice. This means that approximately 80% of your starting ingredients are low-carb veggies and at most 20% are fruit or starchy vegetables.



  •  1 cup (100 g) fresh cranberries
  • 1 lime
  • ½ orange
  • ½ small head or 2 cups cauliflower, florets and stalk
  • ½ small head or 1 wedge green cabbage
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 sprigs mint


  1. Wash all produce well.
  2. Peel lime and orange.
  3. Remove leaves from cauliflower and roughly chop.
  4. Slice a wedge off head of cabbage.
  5. Leave stems/stalks on rosemary and mint to juice.
  6. Juice all ingredients, wrapping the rosemary and mint around the cabbage to get the most yield.
  7. Pour over ice as desired and enjoy!
