Doesn’t it seem like everyone is juicing?!
Pinterest is full of delicious looking concoctions, and I have to say I find it an awesome way to up my intake of greens!
So I don’t actually have a juicer or even a vitamix, but I have a pretty new blender that makes some awesome, healthy drinks. I’m a huge fan of the green smoothie, and I’ve recently started getting into the juice.
The benefit of juicing in a blender is that you don’t get rid of the pulp. With a good blender, you barely notice it and it keeps all of the nutrients of your veggies in the drink
This week, I used some of the sweet strawberries from my Costco sized container and a few slices of kiwi.
The rest got packaged up for lunch during the week. So although juicing isn’t new to everyone, it’s new to my kitchen, and I just might be addicted.
Especially since now that I know I can double my batch and have fresh juice ready for the next morning.
It just needs a shake and then you can grab it and go!
