Pear Shaped Juice Recipe
The recipe is a wonderful digestive tonic with the combination of cabbage and pear being especially good nutrition for the digestive system. If you have eaten poorly and feel your digestive system has gone a bit pear-shaped then try drinking this juice.
The flavour is very well balanced, slightly sweet, and refreshing. It is an easy juice to make and you get lots of fresh juice.
- 4 pears
- 2 cucumbers
- 1/4 cabbage (green)
Juicing Time: 3 mins
Juice Qty: 1100ml
- Remove the hard wooden stems
- Juice whole or cut in half if too big to fit into the wide chute
- Cut into chunks to fit down the chute
- Juice with skin on
- Cut into slices about 5cm wide
- Chop slices into pieces small enough to fit down the chute
Start with the pears. Add them to the juicer one at a time allowing each one to press through fully.
Next add the cabbage, one chunk at a time.
Finish with the cucumber pieces also adding them one at a time.
Remember it is a cold press juicer so let the juicer press each ingredient through before adding more ingredients.
Tip: select the harder pears when buying as they press better in the juicer.
Pears come into season during Autumn and help add some much need moisture to our dry lungs from the summer’s heat. They act as an appetite suppressant and stomach tonic to prevent you from overeating at meals.
Pears are often overlooked by the apple for everyday juicing, but just like apples they are one of the top life-changing foods to consume.
The pear helps rejuvenate the pancreas, an organ that is also overlooked but plays an essential role in converting the food we eat into fuel for the body's cells.
Pear juice is high in electrolytes which can stabilize blood sugar. Plus, pears are low in calories making them great for weight loss.
I highly recommend you add pears to your juice pantry.
Tip: when a pear is hard and crunchy it juices better, and its fiber content is higher. When a pear is soft, its glucose levels are higher, it is very easy to digest and better eaten or blended in a smoothie.
Cucumber juice is highly alkalinizing and very hydrating. When your blood is well hydrated it can carry more oxygen which increases energy levels, kills bacteria and viruses and improves circulation.
Cucumbers can counteract toxins and lift depression; cleanse the blood; quench thirst, moisten the lungs, and purify the skin.
Cucumber juice also cools most inflammatory or heat-related conditions, including stomach inflammation, conjunctivitis, sore throat, acne, and inflamed skin diseases. Hence the saying cool as a cucumber.
Cucumbers are also allies to the liver due to their ability to hydrate it. Your liver’s always in need of living water that’s filled with minerals and other nutrients because your liver keeps your blood hydrated. It relies on sources such as cucumber for that living water.
Plus you get lots of juice without any calories.
Abundantly available in Autumn and Winter the humble, inexpensive, and readily available cabbage is a must have on your list of juicing ingredients. It has a mild flavour and pairs well with apples and oranges.
Cabbage juice is loaded with nutrients, such as vitamins C and K, and drinking it is linked to many benefits, including weight loss, improved gut health, decreased inflammation, balanced hormones, and body detoxification.
One of the best-researched health benefits of cabbage juice is its ability to heal ulcers. The high content of glutamine in cabbage, an amino acid that is the preferred fuel for the cells that line the stomach and small intestine, is likely the reason for cabbage juice’s efficacy in healing ulcers.
