After a month-long of traveling in the islands of Boracay and Palawan, I decided to learn the art of juicing. This time I want to own and run a juice bar!
In 2016, my ex-boyfriend introduced me to the world of juicing. It took me three years to finally start juicing for myself.
I use a slow-masticating Hurom juicer which I bought second-hand last month. And I own a book called The Best Green Smoothies on the Planet since 2017 but I opened only last month.
So, I started juicing with below simple and easy recipes and the colors of these juices are stunning!
- 1/2 Mango
- 1 Green Apple
- 1/4 Lemon
- 1/4 Cucumber
Very easy to prepare and to juice!
With a cup of baby spinach, this ingredient is good for detox and cleansing. I got this recipe from The Best Green Smoothies on the Planet book. I didn’t have spinach at the time.
- 2 pcs. Cucumbers
- 1 pc. Pear
- 3 pcs. Green Apples
Green apples turn to light brown very easily as you can see in this photo.
- 2 cups Papaya
- 2 cups Pineapple
I took out this bottle for a half a day to take a photo. I drank only a quarter of it. Returned home, and it is already spoiled by evening.
No lemon in this juice.
- 1 cup Spinach
- 1 cup Broccoli
- 3 pcs Pear
- 1 bunch Celery
Pear color is neutral and can be easily combined with other fruits like beet, mango, or orange.
I like the color of this batch, it looks super healthy and nutritious.
Broccoli smell is not very strong but it has its own distinct bad smell.
I heard that celery is a bit of a pain on juicers. To prevent this, I chopped the celery to 2-inch length and threw it in the juicer. It still made a loud noise like I’m juicing a rubber!
- 1 pc. Beet
- 1 bunch Celery
- 4 pcs. Pears
- 1 pc. Lemon (squeezed to the juice)
I’ve been envious of those who make red juices out of beet! So I made myself one…
From this batch, I made four and a half bottles of juice. I took one out to take a photo and put it back inside the refrigerator.
For three days, they still taste good.
It is advised on youtube videos, forums, and books to add lemon to extend the shelf life of the juice as lemons prevent the oxidation of the fruits. More on this topic on my next blog post.
Celery’s smell is so strong on the first and second day of juice life. Not as much on the third day.
What’s my next color? I want to see that purple red lettuce!
Okkkaaaaaayyyyy, that’s it for today..
