One of the best juices I’ve ever tried is prune juice. Not because of the taste, it’s too sweet and I don’t like sweet drinks unless it’s cola or chocolate. I like prune juice because it makes me poop. It’s my laxative. When my system has gone resistant to my other poop- inducing food, i turn to prune juices before I go for pharmacy-laxatives.
Prune juice makes me poop so I love to drink it. And I also need fiber to make some bulk in my poop other wise I’d be having a diarrhea-like, watery stool.
Here is my anti-constipation smoothie. This is actually a filling breakfast or sometimes supper meal for me 🙂
Prune juice – 250 ml
Fuji apple – 1 big or 2 small ones
1. Dice the apple, make sure to remove the core specially the seeds.
2. Warm the prune juice a little. Microwave it for 30 seconds.
3. Put the apple in the blender with half of the prune juice and press pulse to make a puree
4. Add the remaining prune juice and blend it at high speed.
Drink and prepare to go to the toilet. If I drink this in the morning, I will feel the urge to defecate after lunch. Maybe for others, it will take effect after an hour.
