Watercress and pears are in season at the moment. In fact watercress is a superfood, packed full of nutrients such as iron and vitamin C. A perfect energy booster for your third trimester.
I’m not that fond of the strong peppery taste of watercress, so I reduced the ingredients recommended in the original recipe*. The watercress is not overpowering as you might expect in fact if the pears are really ripe, this is the overriding flavour.
(If blended rather than juiced, makes approximately 150ml)
- 20g organic watercress
- 2 x organic ripe pears.
- If you don’t have a juicer, core the pear and dice.
- Roughly chop the watercress. Place in a suitable bowl and blend.
- If you have a juicer, simply juice the pears, then the watercress and mix.
