Gazpacho – Cold Pressed Juice

by | Sep 18, 2018 | Dinner Juice, Juice Recipes

Description

Gazpacho traditionally is a cold soup made of raw, blended vegetables. A classic of Spanish cuisine. I wanted to see if would make a good cold press juice that could be used as a savoury juice for dinner.

The balance of flavour was perfect, sweet, spicy, watery, salty… a really good dinner juice. The colour was vibrant, it looked fresh and healthy and you could easily drink a whole glass.

Juicy Benefits

This juice is a perfect juice to include during a juice cleanse as the raw garlic, onion and parsley in this juice have excellent detoxing properties.

Tomato juice is good for your heart. They are high in antioxidants and anti-ageing properties. Tomatoes are also renowned for their anti-cancer properties also. Numerous studies have shown that having more tomatoes means people lower their risks of lung, stomach and prostate cancers.  A substance called lycopene, which is the red colour, is thought to be the reason for this cancer protective effect.

Celery Juice is a good natural source of sodium and potassium and a great detoxifier and cleanser. The reason celery is a great cleanser is because it contains coumarins, which stimulate the lymphatic system and encourage increased circulation of lymphatic fluid.

Although many people think of parsley as a decorative garnish to accompany a meal, it is actually a wonderfully nutritious and healing
herb. It’s food signature targets the Lungs & Bronchial. It contains, iron, vitamin c, vitamin k, myristicin, flavonoids
