Raw Vegan Juices of the Moment
So this post will be ALL juicing and juices! This is the first of at least 2 (or 3) posts today so be sure to check back! I have so much to share with you over the next few days and weeks!
First up...take a look at this rich, deep color of the Blueberry, Raspberry, Grape, Lemon Juice my mom and I recently did! I believe this was made out of 1 container of raspberries (maybe 2), 2 containers of blueberries, about 2 pounds of grapes, and 1 whole lemon. This made well over a quart. My father LOVED it so he kept the quart!
We bought a watermelon that wasn't very flavorful so instead of 'chucking it' we decided to juice it! We used about a pound or more of watermelon and 3 pounds of plums! YUM!
The funny thing is that my mom LOVES watermelon but doesn't like watermelon juice by itself. Lucky for me I LOVE BOTH! I did find out that my dad like plum juice...he also like things with lemon in them were as my mother doesn't. It's fun learning what each one likes to zone in on and how taste buds are different!
What are your favorite things to blend with watermelon? I wanted to do Strawberry Watermelon but I wasn't able to find any strawberries YET.
This was great! We took about 3 to 5 pounds of navel oranges and juiced them. It made more than you see here but for the jar I brought home for my husband it was less because we strained it 3 more times. I'm SO HAPPY he liked it! It didn't seem to affect his stomach either!
I've heard that the Tribest SlowStar Juicer I use is one of the best to yield more juice and less pulp! I will try and post a few videos in the near future!
Here we used 1 container of Blueberries, a whole Pineapple, and about 6 to 10 leaves of kale. The kale I used was of the sweeter variety and smelled like cabbage. It was white with dark green highlights!
I will say this smelled weird. I will also say this is one I sipped on a bit and revisited the following morning. Word to the wise on this one...if juicing and refrigerating overnight you most likely will have to restrain this in the morning! Some of the pulp that got thru the juicer and strainer expanded overnight!
ALL of these would make FANTASTIC Freeze Pops, too! I have some more juices to share with you in the near future and I know my parents are both excited to be trying new juices so I am sure this will be at least once week or every other week I will have new ones to share! If you have any suggestions let me know in comments!
