Is this Juicable?

17 May

We received a juicer for our wedding almost 2 years ago.  It has been sitting on our kitchen counter just waiting to be put to good use, until recently.

A few weeks back, while at the grocery store I stocked up on apples, carrots and strawberries. Now that fruit is starting to go down in $$ I bought a little to much.  Since it is just me and my husband there was no way we were going to be able to eat it all before it went bad. With my quick thinking 😉 I whipped out the ole juicer.

We are a good month into juicing now.  I try to make a batch in the evening (one  8 oz glass) and then have enough for a glass in the morning before work. So far my favorite to juice: Handful of tall carrots, 4 apples, a few celery stalks  (very potent taste) and strawberries.

Tonight I switched my line-up a little: Strawberries, Apples, Carrots, Lemon, Tomato, Blueberries.

I had some blueberries to add to the mix, but I was not sure that they would juice. I pulled out a hand blender, dropped in the berries, a handful of ice, and a few scoops of vanilla yogurt. After it was blended I poured in some juice. It was so delicious. My husband gave it two thumbs up! Well, not really, but he really enjoyed it.

Make sure that you clean all of the appliance after use. It can get pretty messy!

If you have not have the opportunity to juice, I highly recommend it! If you have, what do you like to blend together?
