Try this drink - 5 greens for health

I have been so busy lately that time flies without me realising it! Whatever, taking care of oneself is important. The saying goes "anything tasted good is not good for your body". I am not going to debate on this. But this drink (so called five (5) greens) I made for myself is definitely not going to taste good. Jonathan, my eldest son, described this as "a heavenly drink"! You know what he means!

 I will not attempt to describe the taste and you will figure it out for yourself...
I put green pepper, cucumber, bitter gourd, green apple and celery into my high speed blender and out it comes, a drink like above. This is the famous "five greens" health drink. It is supposed to lower your cholesterol and high blood pressure.

The trick to drink this juice is to blend it and without thinking, swallow everything down in one go! An ex-colleague told me that this drink help to put the cholesterol back in order! So, have you tried this and how was your result?

Half Green pepper
Half cucumber (3-4 inches)
Quarter bitter gourd (2 inches)
2 stalks of celery
One medium green apple
100-200ml water

Above should make about 500ml. If you cannot finish everything in one go, you can always share it with someone or use it twice.

Go and check your cholesterol and BP now and then drink this "heavenly drink" for a month. Check the results of your cholesterol and BP again.

hi william, whats the portion/amount of each greens to be blend?

Hi Dona, i have edited my blog and included the recipe. Thanks for asking.
The amount you put in is quite flexible. Those veggies varies in size from country to country. I should really weigh them.

Hi William, thanks for your info..definitely try this! ^^

i wonder if i can take the "heavenly taste" of this drink.

William said...

Hi Dona,
Give it a shot! Don't let your mind control you. If you wish, add in some honey.
But in reality, the taste is not really too bad. It is a lot better than bitter medicine. This one is just "green" taste, if you know what I mean. So, no problem. You can do it.

Make sure you take Omega 3 supplement. I tried many brand and found that the best Omega-3 is from Forever Living through direct sale. It is not very expensive cos it is more concentrated. This Omega 3 really works on me.
