So we have been trying out our Marvellous Superfood in lots of different recipes, and today we devised this juice that is fantastic both for boosting the metabolism and detoxifying the body. We admit, it’s not for the faint-hearted and certainly packs a punch (also, it doesn’t look pretty), but it does absolute wonders for the body! Sweeten with a little honey if needed.
