Palo Azul Green Juice Recipe
80 calories, super nutritious, and delicious!
I’m a huge fan of green juices and have experimented with many recipes. Here I will share my favorite recipe that I drink almost every day because it is supercharged with nutrients and has only 76 calories. I blend all the ingredients and drink it with the fiber but if you prefer you can remove the pulp with a sift or you can use a juicer instead of a blender.
Studies have shown that palo azul and all these ingredients have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic and diuretic properties. These beneficial properties may help to remove toxins, promote weight loss and support your immune system.
