This juice was inspired from an Asparagus and Corn soup. I just added some additional ingredients to make this a light, refreshing, green vegetable juice.
It has a savoury taste, with just a hint of sweetness from the corn.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cobs Corn
  • 10 spears Asparagus
  • 1 Green Capsicum
  • 1 Zucchini
  • 1/2 head Broccoli

Preparation

Corn
  • Remove the outer husk
  • Top and tail the corn cobs so they have a flat end on which to stand
  • Slide your knife down the cob to remove the kernels
 
Asparagus
  • Place the stalks in the freezer for 15 mins (this will make it easier to extract the juice)
  • Juice whole
 
Capsicum
  • Remove the green stems
  • Cut into halves or quarters to fit in the wide chute
  • Remove excess seeds
 
Zucchini
  • Cut the hard end off
  • Juice whole
 
Broccoli
  • Cut off the stem
  • Cut the stem into halves lengthwise
  • Break the florets up into small chunks to fit in the wide chute

Instructions
 

  • Firstly, juice the corn kernels, they are small and light, so they need a clean juicer to easily move through the press.
  • Next juice the asparagus spears one at a time.
  • Follow with the capsicum and zucchini, they have high water content to help push the asparagus through.
  • Lastly, add the broccoli florets and stem.
  • Tip: You might get lots of enzyme foam on the top of the juice when making this recipe. You can mix it into the juice at the end or scoop it out with a spoon and discard like I have done here.
