Is juicing still a thing? I remember it being very popular several years ago with everyone having their green juice and diet fads.
Well in our house it has just begun, and for once it wasnt my idea. So thanks to a trip to my parents and a lovely roast dinner, we were forced to drink a green concoction my mum has started having once a day to help with many health issues she is suffering. To be honest it wasnt to bad. Hubby liked it enough that first thing this morning he was straight onto a buy swap and sell site to find a juicer for us, and bingo! We got a once used, 6 month old, $250 rrp juicer for only $80
So straight after picking up the juicer we headed to our favorite discount fruit and vegetable shop. The whole trolly was loaded to the top with various fruit, vegetables and about 5kg of meat. (With some sneaky chocolate thrown in) it was an absolute bargain at just under $75 for a full trollys worth of fruit and veg. If we had done this shop in the large supermarket it would have been around $200 for everything we got.
So once home and the kids finally having a late and well needed nap we got to work on making our own concoction, and all I have to say is it was bloody yummy! (With a little to much ginger)
3 green apples
Large chunk of ginger (it was to much and next time will add half the amount)
It was so refreashing to drink and filling as well. With all the citrus flavours and the apple helped to balance it all out.
The next juice we made was what my mum forced us to drink, its also the juice from the movie FAT SICK AND NEARLY DEAD. (Highly recommended)
The last juice we made this afternoon was for the kids (it was my favourite) the kids absolutly smashed it and the best part was it was not full of sugar like regular juice.
2 thick sliced of a quarter cut watermelon
8 very large strawberries
2 large green apples
And 2 large sneaky carrots
So if you have a favourite juice recipie comment below so I can try it out. So far we will be having 1 juice a day each, not going for a juice fast or anything extream just yet.
