So excited… after months, maybe years of trying to decide what juicer to get on a budget, I made a decision. Woah! And am I ever so excited about it. It’s one of those things that you’re like… “why didn’t I do this sooner?”
I went with the Breville Juice Fountain Plus… the price was right for just starting my juicing adventures and I read some pretty good reviews on this model. So far, so good! I’m lovin’ it.
Below are some of the delish recipes I have enjoyed making over the Summer. I hope you find them tasty!
First off, I present to you, my favorite morning time juice… (drum roll, please)… Green Goodness Juice. Love it, super easy to make, accessible ingredients and packed with nutrients to get your day going.
GREEN GOODNESS JUICE
1 green pear
1 green apple
1 celery stalks
2 kale leafs
1 inch of ginger
Makes about 10 ounces
Wash all the fruits and veggies really well. Juice all the ingredients on the high setting. Some people juice kale on the low setting, it depends on what type of juicer you have and how it works. I roll the kale up real tight and juice it on the high setting. I will also run it through the juicer twice, if I feel like it has not extracted enough juice. Pour the Green Goodness juice in your favorite glass and enjoy.
And on to the delicious Berry Beet Blast. I serve this Berry Beet Blast up in a wine glass or a wine tumbler, because I like to feel fancy. :) I love to sit back, chill and just sip away! This juice is hearty, dense and filled with antioxidants.
BERRY BEET BLAST
1 cup blueberries
1 cup blackberries
1 large beet
Makes about 8 ounces
Wash your fruits and veggies really well. Add the blueberries and blackberries to the juicer on the low setting. After you have juiced the blueberries and blackberries, change the setting to high and add the beet to the juicer. Serve in a wine glass or wine tumbler.
Can you say, refreshing? This cooler will hit the spot on those hot Summer days or nights. Soooo easy to make and such a refreshing treat. You can switch up the mint and use basil instead. Endless possibilities and most definitely to be enjoyed all year round!
WATERMELON STRAWBERRY MINT COOLER
quarter of a large watermelon
1/2 cup of strawberries
handful of mint (save a couple leaves for garnish) :)
makes about 40 ounces
Wash all your fruit and veggies really well. Add watermelon and strawberries to blender, liquify. Then add mint to the blender and blend for just a quick minute or so. I like to see tiny little pieces of mint still floating around. Serve with ice and a strawberry mint garnish. Enjoy!
Keturah took some fun behind the scene shots during our juicing extravaganza photo shoot. Loving the pics and what a fun day… after the shoot we enjoyed slurping down these delicious juices – the perks of having a vegan food blog. :)
