Spring Cleanse Vegetable Juice with Asparagus, Cucumber and Tomato
Here’s a spring cleanse vegetable juice recipe. This one is good all year round.
This is an interesting recipe, because I’ve never juiced asparagus. Steamed asparagus is delicious and I have always loved cold cooked asparagus on salads, so juicing them should be good too. I had to try it.
I liked this recipe and it’s especially good over ice. I used a very large tomato and cucumber and could definitely taste them. Just a hint of lemon and a little asparagus flavor. Good vegetable juice! Try it if you like asparagus as I do.

Asparagus is a brain booster: Another anti-aging property of this delicious spring veggie is that it may help our brains fight cognitive decline. Like leafy greens, asparagus delivers folate, which works with vitamin B12—found in fish, poultry, meat and dairy—to help prevent cognitive impairment. In a study from Tufts University, older adults with healthy levels of folate and B12 performed better on a test of response speed and mental flexibility. (If you’re 50-plus, be sure you’re getting enough B12: your ability to absorb it decreases with age.) Asparagus is packed with antioxidants: It’s one of the top ranked fruits and vegetables for its ability to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals. This, according to preliminary research, may help slow the aging process. – Eatingwell.com
