We are fairly big fans of juicing, not as in juice fasts but a nutrient filled addition to the day. Today I tried a new recipe from Julie Morris’ book Superfood Juices. First, let me just say, I love love love this book, it makes juicing seem glamorous or like some type of special treat. I expect this will last 2-3 days. What you will need:
- 1 honey dew melon
- 3 Tbsp chia seeds
- 4 mint stalks (we grow our own 🙂 thanks to my sister’s garden
- 2 large cucumbers
- raw honey
- wheat grass powder
Prep your produce for the juicer. If you don’t have one this is a great purchase. It is best to go for quality here. We got ours from Macy’s on sale for about $300. If not you can blend then strain…it works just not fun.
Let me take a quick minute to plug Crate & Barrel here for this awesome strainer. We picked this up for $20. One of my all time best purchases. This never goes on sale, so no use in waiting. Don’t these cucumbers look AMAZING !
Add honey, chia seeds and 2 cups of water. Try to store in a glass on container with an air tight lid and fill to the top to limit oxygen. This makes about 6 servings. Keep in fridge and this should stay good for 2-3 days.
