My juicing creativity is back! While I still juice at least once a day, for a while I was juicing from the same choices each day – grapefruit, bell peppers (still love those!), apples, carrots, ginger and beets. Some days I’d go wild and blend the juice with spinach.
Lately we’ve added a couple new additions, one of them being kale!
Another veggie I brought back recently, broccoli. One of my favorite vegetables, I could eat broccoli every day, any way.
The broccoli pulp smells really bad (I suggest you take it outside immediately), but the juice is so good, almost sweet. Add an apple and some carrots, this juice is sweet!
sweet broccoli kale juice
1/2 bunch kale
1 large “tree” broccoli
5 large carrots
2 Golden Delicious apples
Juice! I add the carrots last, and then take the carrot pulp and run it through the juicer again. It actually generates juice on it’s second pass through! It’s messy, so you can decide whether that’s worth it to you. If I know I’m not saving the pulp to cook with and I’m not in a hurry, I like knowing I squeezed as much as I possibly can.
This is my new favorite juice, and broccoli-hating Jason? LOVES it.
Are you a broccoli fan?
Any suggestions for other crazy combinations? I have a smoothie I’ll share soon that was indeed unique!
