I have been wanting try out some new juicing recipes for a while. I have been doing smoothies a couple of times a week and have really enjoyed it. We have a fancy juicer that we got as a wedding gift, and it was gently placed on the highest shelf in the house when we moved in here. So this morning I asked the kiddo, who is now the tallest person in the house at 6 feet even, to reach it down for me.
Today I tried a recipe from Crazy Sexy Kitchen by Kris Carr, called the Morning Glorious. The recipe is as follows:
1 larger cucumber
A fist full of kale
A fist full of romaine
2 or 3 stalks of celery (I used 2 as I think celery has a really strong taste in juice)
1 big broccoli stem
1 green apple, quartered (I used a pink crisp as it was all that I had on hand)
1/2 peeled lemon, quartered
I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about how it would taste. I have experimented a bit with juicing in the past and have learned that one flavor can really take over a juice. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It has a very mild flavor, slight sweet with a bit of an almost salty after taste. It's a beautiful green color and poured over a bit of ice, I found it to be completely refreshing.
