No, we’re not talking A-Rod here. If you know me, you know I would not bother talking about anything having to do with the Yankees.
Just talking juice. Last week I pureed some wonderful mangoes with some watermelon and came up with a delicious juice that lasted me for about 4 days. 4 mangoes, half a watermelon, 4 days of lucious juice. That one I did with my hand blender.
This week I cut up what turned out to be 3 mangoes and a whole canteloupe. I added a squeeze of a lime…ok, a whole lime’s juice…and had to blend in the blendere. Still, about 4 days worth of juice.
Well, last night on Ellen, Jessica Alba was talking about a green smoothie. I think that’s next on my list. Kale, cucumbers, ginger, apples and lemon juice. I may add in some spinach too.
Why all this home-juicing? Because I’m sick and tired of finding that my juice companies are either misrepresenting themselves (Naked) or owned by some big conglomerate (Bolthouse) or can’t really provide me with what I want to know (no GMO…organic). So, I will get my own organic (or locally grown since organic is kinda difficult to find around here), and make a smoothie/juice I can store for a while and enjoy.
I think it might just be my new trend. I might even ask for a juicer attachment for the Kitchen Aid for Christmas. who knows.
