Just in time for our 56 degree high today, I’d like to talk juicing. Nothing like impeccable timing, huh? If you’re looking for something a little more weather appropriate this weekend, I’m going to try out a healthier version of my chai tea latte mix this weekend and if it is as addicting as the one I used to use, I’ll certainly let you know.
However, today, juicing. Yum. I’m not sure I know anyone who wouldn’t really enjoy a glass of fresh juice. Even if you think it sounds funny, one sip and I bet you’d try any of our concoctions.
One of my favorite mixes:
- Celery (just one)
- Ginger (cut off about 1″)
Just mix as much as you want of everything except the celery. I* think it starts to take over the flavor so generally just add one in any mix.
One of the benefits of juicing is the methodical prep work and then the refreshing reward at the end. If you’re really lucky, you’ll get smiles all around.
Another great mix:
Same as above. Really, you just can’t go wrong here. Just keep adding, it’s also a great way to use a bunch of veggies that you think you won’t be able to get through before they are past their prime.
Head on over to Jeremy & Kathleen and check out her mix too. Looks great and I always forget about oranges. That is, unless we’re making fresh mimosas.
*Full disclaimer. I say “I”, but Jeff does all the juicing. Thank goodness. But I can say he (we) are super happy about our new, very easy to clean juicer. It’s this one and only chosen for the power, online reviews and budget. Getting 2 thumbs up over here.
