My mom recently alerted me to the fact that she is going to juice. Juice greens, that is.
She bought herself a fancy new Breville juicer, of which I’m incredibly jealous (and may or may not steal if I find out she isn’t using it). Whether she knows it or not, those are highly coveted juicers in the green juice world and slightly expensive- but good!
Anyway, my mom asked me for a few recipes that she could try out.
Then my friend at work got a juicer for her family. Again, I was asked for juicing recommendations.
Then another friend asked me if I had recipes for juices that I would be willing to share.
Was there a sale on juicers that I was just not aware of…?
Back to the recipes- Of course I sent everyone to my blog but being that I don’t have that many juice recipes, I’m now going to try to make it a point to share more. You know, because I’ve been blogging so much lately. (If you once regularly read my blog, you know this is a lie. Work comes first, people. Sorry!)
Mission 1: Juice More
Mission 2: Post more [juice recipes]
Starting with this jewel of a recipe: Honeydew Mint Green Juice.
Just the name makes me somehow more peaceful and serene. And it’s ultra-refreshing!
Taste summer… And feel vibrant! (And more recipes at the bottom of this post!)
Honeydew Mint Green Juice
Makes about 16 oz of pure green goodness. More or less of any amount won’t matter too much so feel free to play!
- 2 inch thick slice of ripe honeydew melon
- 1/2 bunch fresh mint (about 1/4 – 1/3 cup, if packed)
- 3 celery stalks
- 1/4 fresh fennel bulb
- 1/4 cucumber
Slice all fruit and vegetables into pieces small or thin enough to fit into your juicer.
Juice all ingredients.
Pour into a glass.
I had never juiced melon before and it is fabulously refreshing. It was new to me… what fruits and/or vegetables are new to you for juicing?
This post is for you, Mom!
