Plantain stem Passion fruit juice/ Banana stem juice with passion fruit

Hello there, it’s been long time since I posted my last recipe and I am here with a healthy juice recipe now. The main two ingredients of this recipe are Banana stem and passion fruit. Both of them have their own benefits. Banana stem is known for its nutritional contents and fibre rich property which is also known for its benefits in kidney diseases. Passion fruit is one of the healthiest fruits which is a good source of vitamins, minerals & antioxidants. So what better way than combining these two to start your day off? Then comes this idea of making juice with these two healthy ingredients.
