Juice It Up!

Welcome to my juicy post!!

Honestly, juicing is pretty easy. The key is... it all depends on what taste you prefer taste-wise. Do you prefer sweet juice? subtle juice? or vegetable-ish? I tend to prefer subtle. Not too sweet. Getting a good amount of veggies + 1 cup worth of a sweet fruit like apples hits the nail right on the head. If you prefer super sweet, either up your apples or try a cup worth of grapes instead. Grapes make a super sweet tasting juice.

Well, here is my juice collection so far:

Watermelon juice:
Hey! Why not?!

 Run watermelon and oranges through the juicer. So easy!

Not so scary beet juice:
I made a very large batch here. It included this jar plus a full glass!
The ingredients: 
4 carrots, 1 apple, 3 oranges and 1 beet.

 This guy down below was part of another large batch. It was not very sweet, but again, I didn't want it to be.

A good afternoon snack type of juice:

 The ingredients:
1 handful of cilantro, 1 heart of celery, 3-4 carrots, 1 apple, 1/2 a cucumber and 1 rainbow chard leaf.

This glass consists of 1 heart of celery, 2 carrots, 2 chard leaves, and an apple.

Neon Orange Juice:

I love brightly colored juice! It makes me excited to get it in my belly! :)
Lots of carrots + a diced apple and an orange.

Super Sweet Carrot Grape Juice:
Just run carrots & grapes through the juicer.

Interesting Juice:
1/2 a beet, 2 rainbow chard leaves and a couple oranges. The chard is what makes it green on top!

It's hard to go wrong once you have the right 'standard' juice recipe for your taste. Then you can just adjust other ingredients for variations!

Now, go juice!
