Juicing Becomes The Thing For Upcoming Summer Days
• Peninsula residents bring out their best juicing recipes for the warm spring months.
I am one of those people who gets obsessed with one thing for a week and then switches to somethinge else. One week for breakfast, it is peanut butter toast. The next week, it is oatmeal.
Lately, I have loved my juicer. In the summer, I use my juicer a lot more as I have more time to juice and buy fruits and vegetables to juice. Juicing takes a lot of work and time, so I juice when I have a lot of fruit. My friend has an orange tree and she gave me two huge bags full of juicy oranges, so I decided to juice them as I wouldn’t be able to eat the amount of oranges I received. Oranges are great to juice as they are so juicy when ripe and all you must do is take the skin off.
When I juice oranges, I love the final product because the juice is so fresh, and you know that there isn’t any added sugar or chemicals. I mainly juice oranges, but I have tried different fruits and vegetables.
I experimented with granny smith apples and red apples. Apples don’t give off a lot of juice, but I just wanted to try fresh apple juice.
Granny smith apple juice may seem sour, but it was surprisingly sweet with a little sour bite which I really like. I might have a higher sour tolerance scale than you do so you can always mix different types of apple juice depending on what you may like.
Next, I made a cucumber, green apple, and celery juice. Alone, celery juice is not delicious, but when I added a small amount to cucumber and green apple juice it tasted amazing!
What I love the most about juicing is how refreshing the juice is and how you can experiment with juices and make amazing combinations. Now, not everyone has a juicer but there are some great juices you can buy.
My all-time favorite juice is Citrus 2 from Pressed Juicery. In this juice are apples, lemon, mint, and pineapple. I love this drink because its so refreshing and a little bit sour with a hint of mint.
My favorite juice from a restaurant is the Green monster juice from Tender Greens. I don’t know all the ingredients in this drink, but I do know that it has green apple and kale. When I think of green juice it sounds as if it tastes like vegetables and healthy, but this drink mainly tastes of green apple which I love but I still feel healthy at the same time.
From SunLife Organics, I love the lotus juice. This juice contains pear, rosewater, pineapple, beet, lemon, and green apple. This drink is tart and floral and has such a unique flavor. From evolution I love the coconut pineapple water which is so refreshing and simple.
Lastly, from 1915 Organic I get the coconut water, pineapple, mango, avocado, and lemon juice. This drink is so flavorful and can be found at most grocery stores.
