You would think that juicing in the dead of winter is really a good sign. It means we’re being proactive with our health, getting in front of those flu germs, and gulping down fresh fruits and veggies, right? Well yes, I guess it is all those things but really it isn’t a good sign at all – it’s a desperate one in fact. We have whipped out the juicer more often this week because it is the last trick in my bag. This weather has taken us through dozen of puzzles, a new gallery wall of marker art, and enough snow play to last a lifetime. Small appliances however (especially with plungers and fierce motors!) are new and exciting. So we are juicing almost everything in our refrigerator drawers as edible experiments. Most have come out well (besides a very bitter orange juice) but this mix is our favorite.
makes 2 small glasses
1/2 a cucumber
1-inch piece of fresh ginger
4 celery stalks
Simply juice the fruits and vegetables according to your machine’s instructions. We start with the softest produce and work our way up to the hardest (typically carrots). Pour into glasses and enjoy.
Cheers to only 29 more days until Spring!
