Excelsior – Recipe

Excelsior is a nutritious, semi-sweet green juice. Pear gives this juice a little sweetness and a wonderful mouthfeel. Cucumber makes it extra hydrating and keeps it from being too sweet. We think this is a nicely balanced combination of greens. Just alkaline enough to balance the sweetness of the fruit and with a pleasant variety of flavors. A 12 fl oz serving contains only about 100 calories and provides 150% of your daily value of vitamin A, 50% of vitamin C, 370% of vitamin K, and 50% of copper, as well as a host of other vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants. If you like green juice, you might enjoy Dr. Green Love, and Emeryville Green.
