  • 1/4 medium red cabbage, sliced
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 large apple, cut into eighths
  • Ice cubes (optional)

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Working in this order, process cabbage, cucumber, blueberries and apple through a juicer according to the manufacturer's directions. (No juicer? See Tip.)
  2. Fill 2 glasses with ice, if desired, and pour the juice into the glasses. Serve immediately.
  • No juicer? No problem. Try this DIY version of blended and strained juice instead: Coarsely chop all ingredients. First, place the soft and/or juice ingredients in the blender and process until liquefied. Then, add the remaining ingredients; blend until liquefied. Cut two 24-inch-long pieces of cheesecloth. Completely unfold each piece and then stack the pieces on top of each other. Fold the double stack in half so you have a 4-layer stack of cloth. Line a large bowl with the cheesecloth and pour the contents of the blender into the center. Gather the edges of the cloth together in one hand and use the other hand to twist and squeeze the bundle to extract all the juice from the pulp. Wear a pair of rubber gloves if you don't want the juice to stain your hands.

I had to rate this I never rate anything, really this is my first review. But I had to give this 5 stars. I was nervous about having a cabbage juice but was pleasantly surprised! This also yielded a large amount of juice (3 pints when doubled). And due to its beautiful color my kids even asked to try it! Pros: High yield

not bad... and not a huge cabbage fan! First off, I doubled the recipe which said it would yield 16 ounces. I Doubled it and got 32 ounces! Good bang for the buck! As I said, I'm not a huge fan of cabbage and I could have tweaked the recipe a bit, but wanted to try it as written. Next time I think I'll add more blueberries and maybe another apple and reduce the cabbage some. If you don't mind cabbage, you'll like it! Pros: yield, color ,consistency Cons: cabbage-lol
