I recently got into the craze of juicing every single vegetable and fruits I can get my hands on.
It started with a leftover of too many green apples and from then on, all my kids got into the habit of drinking fresh fruits and vegetables juices. My problem is I do not know which combination works best. I enjoy mixing the fruits and vegetables to mask the smell of the vegetables.
So far, I have used:
- brocolli stem
- ginger (trust me, it gives nice smell and helps me to expel the gas caused by watermelon)
- Chinese parsley
- regular fruits like apple, oranges, grapes
- star fruits
- honey dew
- banana! ( abit mixed with other fruits won’t make the juice slimey)
- carrots, obviously
- roselle (a kind of flower)
Of course, eating fresh fruits is a lot more healthier. But hey, it is fun to down two apples, one orange and a huge slice of watermelon in a glass. Otherwise, how to consume that many fruits at one go, right?
The above red coloured juice is the juice from roselle flowers. I found the flowers for sale at GAMA, going for mere RM1.30 for a packet. It is this juicy red flowers which I boiled with some sugar because the thing is soooooo sour! After making a syrup from the flowers, I found it still too sour for my liking. So, I am adding them into my juices.
Now, kind folks, please share with me your favourite juice combination. I am totally lost in this because I don’t know what taste best when combined. I have yet to get my hands on beetroot to make an evil red juice yet.
A sidenote : Remember to make sure that all the utensils you use to cut the fruits are dry and clean. Use separate knives, chopping board, bowls from those you use for raw meat, please! And don’t go overboard with the orange-y vegetables if you don’t want to end up yellow on the palms and soles.
