Juice!

Juice!

It had been, sadly, a very long time since I had made fresh juice at home…like years!
So, all around me, friends, coworkers, clients…they all were juicing…maybe more intensely than I plan to, but juicing just the same. So, it got me really wanting to get back into this simple, delicious and healthy, ugh…trend @_@ hate to say that, but hey, who am I kidding.
So, I started a few weeks ago, instead of just eating my usual few pieces of fruit for breakfast, I’d blend it up together and drink it! So, it’s what I’ve been doing every morning. But! I did not want to go out and buy a fancy (expensive) contraption to just get my juice fix! After all, I’ve gotta save my money for buying rhinestones and such for my burlesque career!
So, I just have been using my lovely little Emerson blender! Also called a stick blender. I’ve had it for years and have really only used it for sauces and soups…it is now a triple threat!

So, today I’m sharing with you one of my favorite juices! I hope you’ll try it. It’s got many health benefits, like parsley has anti-inflammatory qualities (which I need since my old injuries still act up), pineapple helps build strong bones, ginger helps prevent colds…that’s just a few great benefits from drinking a juice like this!

So, onto the recipe!

8 fresh strawberries
1 fresh banana, cut up
2 fresh pineapple slices, cut up (about 1cup)
1 fresh chunk of ginger, peeled (about an inch)
1 handful of fresh parsley ( about 1/2 a cup)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries

Place the first 5 ingredients into a large glass, or measuring cup. Quickly blast everything with your Emerson blender. Once everything is nicely combined, add in the blueberries and blast it again til fairly smooth. This blender doesn’t make a creamy smooth drink, so you can strain it into a cheese cloth, or like me, just drink it as is! The bits just feel like on pulp, no big deal!

So very yummy!

So very yummy!

So delish!

So delish!


That’s it! Drink it right away, fresh and cold ( from those frozen blueberries!)

Until we eat again, enjoy!
