Recipe Monday: Sunshine Juice

March 25, 2013

This is a bit late, but I’m fighting off one hell of a cold-flu thing while juggling a lot of stuff on the SMP end of things. I’ve spent more time in a cold medicine haze than I have doing much else. XD

The recipe I’m sharing today isn’t really a recipe. See, my parents gave me their juicer a couple months back, and the Armstrong-Piet household has been juicing regularly. We’ve preferred the fresh juice over anything store bought, and it’s become out ‘first meal of the day’ sort of thing. And, so, I wanted to share one of our favorite juices so far.

1 whole peeled pineapple, core included
5 ripe mangos, peeled
9 navel oranges, peeled
1 bag baby carrots

Our juicer requires us to roughly chop up all our fruit into large chunks. Do what your juicer requires. Pass all the fruit through the juicer, mix it up, and serve over ice. For us, it makes 4 large (20oz) servings (about 8 cups). This is packed full of vitamins A and C, which are two vitamins I’m often lacking in due to a very poor immune system. It’s absolutely delicious. Sweet and bright and refreshing.

We tend to juice with the season. Right now, mangos and oranges are very inexpensive in our markets. Earlier in the year, it was berries and apples.

Today, we’re going to try to make our own ‘fruit punch’ juice, and I’ll report back with how that goes. 🙂
