Goods to Know Blender Juice

Did you know you can juice with your blender?! I shared this information with the Raw Food Toronto Meetup group a couple weeks back and a few were very surprised. I must admit when I first found out I was super excited too, it meant I could juice wheat grass at home!! I don’t juice enough to justify buying a fancy juicer and I’d much rather spend the money on a good blender as it’s way more versatile for a living foods lifestyle.

Loose instructions for a day’s worth of juice, about 2L

1 head of celery
8 leaves of kale
1 cucumber
1 beet
1 lemon
apple (optional)
pinch of high mineral salt (add after juiced)
stevia to taste (add after juiced)

Depending on the power of your blender you might need to chop everything into pretty small pieces, or even add a bit of water to get started. With my old blender (pictured above) I could get away with no water if I started with cucumber diced pretty small and then add the remaining ingredients from there.

Once everything is blended up like a smoothie, pour the entire blender contents into a nut milk bag and squeeze out all that nutritious veggie juice into a bowl. Season with the salt and stevia. I keep the pulp in the freezer until I have enough for a batch of doggie cookies or raw crackers.

Make sure you store the juice in an air tight glass container for no more than 12 hours. Once the pulp is removed the juice loses nutrients pretty quickly. This is why all those juice products sold in stores are mostly just sugar and preservatives.

Do you have any idea how good that is for you!!!! Soooo good!
