fruit & veggie juice

I’m just going to go ahead and carry over the beverage theme from yesterday because I have to share a yummy juice recipe that was actually invented by my daughter.

It was 84 degrees today (it’s still winter, right?) so an icy-cold glass of this fresh juice was a welcome treat after our hot walk home from school this afternoon.

I should start by letting you know that we do not own a juicer.

That’s right.

We make all of our fresh juices in a blender so don’t worry if you don’t own a juicer either.

If you own a decent blender, you can make juice.

It’s so easy. Just blend, strain, and enjoy!

Cam’s recipe is fantastic as it is but feel free to add different varieties of fruit to suit your taste.

She doesn’t like anything tart (just like her mama 😉 ) so we added just a bit of lime juice to brighten things up and we used a gala apple rather than a more tart variety, like a Granny Smith.

Don’t be put off by the carrots. We didn’t taste them at all.

Cam's Fresh Fruit & Veggie Juice

Ingredients:

2 carrots peeled and sliced

1 apple cored and chopped

1/4 cup pineapple chopped

1/4 cup frozen blueberries

juice of half a lime

4 ice cubes

3/4 cup water

Directions

Add ingredients to a blender, pulse a few times to get things going, then blend on high for a couple of minutes until the mixture is super smooth. This took about two and a half minutes in my blender.

Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer. Use the back of a large spoon to press the remaining pulp just to be sure you get every last drop of juice.

Pour over ice and drink up!
