Give Us This Day Our Daily Juice

Westervin: Fresh Daily Juice Recipe

We’ve been making (or at least trying to make) juice every day for awhile now, and though we do like to experiment with what we juice every now and then, we also have a basic recipe for day-to-day juicing. It makes two pretty large glasses of juice that we usually drink around lunch time.

Everyday Juice

  • 2 Oranges
  • 2 Apples
  • 2 handfuls of green stuff! (e.g. spinach, kale, lettuce)
  • 1-2 celery stalks
  • 3-4 carrots

This is the barebones recipe that we play around with. Adding a ring or two of fresh pineapple is one of our favorite additions. Substituting sweet potato for carrots also turns out well.

Happy juicing!

Sweet Potato Dreamsicle

Ever since getting a juicer and reading that you can juice sweet potatoes, we’ve been kind of curious how exactly that would turn out. For some reason, it took us until just a couple of weeks ago to actually juice one! I sure wish we would have tried it earlier, because these sweet taters are tasty.

If you add some sweet potato to one of your regular juice recipes, it will make the whole thing a little thicker. Not as thick as a smoothie, but thicker than plain old juice. Our favorite sweet potato juice so far we call the Dreamsicle Juice, because it’s sweet and kind of looks like a Dreamsicle.

Dreamsicle Juice

1 orange
3 carrots
1/2 a small sweet potato

 

Juice ‘em! You’ll probably want to play around with the proportions since sweet potatoes (not to mention carrots and oranges) come in such different sizes. We’ve also added Mango to this which was great, too.

Sweet potatoes have nearly as much carotene as carrots, and the combination is supposed to be good for the skin!

Artfully Wed: Clementine at the County Fair

Well, folks… things on the wedding front are getting pretty serious.  Except “serious” isn’t quite the right word.  It’s gettin’ REAL!  We’re actually starting to make plans for our nuptials and the eagerly anticipated after party blow-out bash (aka reception).  I’ve been having so much fun collecting ideas and inspiration, coming up with color schemes and ridiculous themes (50’s pool party, anyone?), I think I could make “overboard” my middle name.
