I'm a big juice lover, everyone knows that. Every time I'm in Mall of the Emirates I HAVE to stop by Pulp (the awesome juice bar) to get a big size of my very well loved "Strawberry Heaven". But my mum always says that there is a lot of sugar in these drinks and no one knows what they put in them.
Don't worry mum, everything is under control! I got a juicer!
Well, to be honest, it was my mum's idea to get a juicer, haha. I got myself a blender to do a good "Strawberry Heaven" every morning.
Here are a few good reasons why you should get a juicer:
- You know what you're putting in your juice
- You can mix a few ingredients and have your own "secret" juice recipes
- It's healthier - duh.
- It's fun
The taste is a bit different from the juice you normally drink (the one in a box). But that's fine, it's only because of the fruit you used- obviously. For example, the apple you used can be sweeter than the other in your fridge. Perfectly normal.
To be honest, my first attempt wasn't that yummy... I mixed a mango and two slices of pineapple. It was drinkable, but it would be better with an orange.
I was super excited about the juicer that I started searching for healthy recipes. Yes, healthy recipes included: lettuce, beetroot, spinach, cucumber, parsley, etc. What is this? A salad? Then I thought I would stick to "fruit" juices before I find onion and garlic juice.
But apparently the "salad" juices are really good for you. I'll have to give it a try.
Anyway, I've been playing with my blender too. I'll post a few recipes when I can :)
What are your healthy choices?
