Divalicious Fruit & Veggie Juice
Hey divas, you've made it halfway through the week (almost), so let's get this morning started right. I've blogged about a lot of topics, but so far have not touched on juicing. Last year, my boyfriend, Kuzak, in a fit of inspiration, purchased an Omega Juicer, the king of juicers (see my Amazon Store). It's a masticating juicer, which mean that you can process both fruits and greens like wheat grass in it. Then, like chefs in a test kitchen, we set about making hundreds of different juice concoctions. In short, we discovered that 1) you can literally juice anything and 2) provided that the base of your juice is carrot or apple, it will taste delicious no matter what you put in it. The benefits of juicing are that it's a quick, easy way to load your diet with fruits and vegetables, plus it's absolutely delicious.
I'm posting this recipe for my mother, the Original Diva. While she owns an Omega Juicer, she has yet to venture beyond juicing carrots. Hopefully, this will help to open her eyes to the world of juicing possibilities in the universe. This juice combines classics like apple and carrot with kale and ginger! While the color isn't the most appealing in the world, the taste is great. Periodically, I'll continue posting new juice recipes, so check out my Amazon store and get a juicer. This is one of the best things you can do for your health!
Domestic Diva's Divalicious Fruit & Veggie Juice
1 celery stalk
2 kale leaves
1 small nub of ginger
Wash all the ingredients. Chop the fruit & veggies into sizes that will fit through the juicer. Then, juice everything, straining the juice if desired. Stir and enjoy!
