Once (sometimes twice) a day

A centrifugal juicer and blender joined our family of kitchen appliances recently. Since Friday, we’ve tried a number of juice recipes and have really enjoyed them!

We started off drinking a blend of fruit and vegetable juices once per day. But on Wednesday, we started drinking a smoothie (fresh veggie/fruit juice + frozen berries, a banana, live yoghurt, and museli) for breakfast and a veggie/fruit juice mix right before dinner.

Things we’ve juiced: apples, pineapples, carrots, melons, limes, lemons, ginger, kale, spinach, celery, cucumbers, beets, kiwis, tomatoes, bell peppers, courgettes.

Things we’ve blended with the fresh juices: mint, frozen berries, bananas, live yoghurt, museli.

Things I want to juice: Brussels sprouts, broccoli, watercress, parsley, grapefruits, parsnips, alfalfa sprouts.

And other things to blend in: avocados, Brazil nuts, cherries, mangos.

It’s all delicious! Some of the combinations seem like they’d be awful, but they are truly good. I think we’ve drank more fruits and veggies in the last seven days than we’ve eaten in the last month. If you’ve ever wondered about juicing, Jason Vale does a good job simplifying the the process. Cherie Calbom has a good site too.

    Very healthy sounding

    Sounds like a good prep pre Houston. Did you get a VitaMix? if I recall they are huge.

    My throat’s closing up just reading all of the ingredients…where’s my Benadryl?

  4. Christine says:

    what a healthy and delicious change of diet. I’ve been realizing lately we don’t actually need a lot of the meat we eat.

  5. Bee says:

    I’ve never been a fan of the taste of green juice, but I love the way this one looks! You are kidding about the brussels sprouts, right?

  6. Linda says:

    I read about one person’s favorite using banana, almond milk and spinach. Sounds weird but they swear by it!

  7. This seems to be very healthy, but I prefer to eat meat with vegetables and drink a fruit juice… I don´t have the courage to taste the misxture of vegetables and fruit in a juice…

    JAPRA, I’m skeptical about the brussle sprouts – but the smoothies sound delicious!
