In my work, with the current tendency to consume natural juices that serve and help the body of athletes or simply people who want to ingest some extra vitamins and energy, I have been experimenting with so-called D-Tox juices. Today I want to share with you this D-tox that I find very healthy and also delicious, it is a mixture of passion fruit, cucumber and celery.
Now I show how to prepare it.
In a blender mix the passion fruit pulp (previously processed), half peeled cucumber without seeds and a branch of celery; Add ice and a little sugar to taste. it will take a greenish color but to give it more color you can add a little passion fruit juice in the middle of the glass, also this time I decorated with cut oranges and mint leaves that aromatize the D-tox juice even more.
