Green juice with a prebiotic punch!

I love having  a breakfast juice in the garden on a sunny morning. I particularly love green juices which are full of chlorophyll and vitamins. But did you know that Tiger Nuts are a great source of prebiotic goodness. Most people now understand the importance of probiotics  for healthy digestion, but you might not have heard of prebiotics.  Prebiotics are a source of food for probiotics to grow, multiply and survive in the gut. Prebiotics are fibres which cannot be absorbed or broken down by the body and therefore serve as a great food source for probiotics, in particular for Bifidobacteria. So adding a spoon or two of Tiger Nut flour to your morning  juice is a great way to help feed your digestive system. But also as Tiger Nuts are naturally sweet they can help mask the taste of some of the stronger green juices.

For this I juiced a head of celery, added two spoons of Tiger Nut flour and a spoon of my favourite Morning Elixir from Alchemy Superblends which contains wheatgrass, spirulina and chlorella all of which make this a great juice for  cleansing and detoxing.
