The Freshmaker

Everybody knows that fresh-squeezed juice is the way to go. Having trouble getting your kids to eat their veggies? Juice up a carrot with some apples and they will gulp it down. Carrot can be a little rough on the digestive system so I always cut it with some grapes or apple.

Lillie's favorite includes a small slice of ginger and a handful of fresh flat leaf parsley. The spicy earthiness of the ginger and the clean herbal taste of the parsley subtly compliment the sweetness of apple and carrot. I love the bitter tartness flavor the apple peel adds. Yummy.

Lillie's Juicy Jumble

1 or 2 carrots (depending on your love of all things carrot)
2 apples - quartered
big handful of grapes
small piece of ginger (or a large slice if you are a ginger lover like me!)
small handful of fresh flat leaf parsley

Throw each item into the juicer. I guess this isn't much of a recipe, is it?! Fast and delicious. Here are a few other favorites:

Purpleberry Delite

1 cup of blueberries
2 small pears - quartered
1/2 golden beet

What-a-melon Surprise

1/2 small watermellon - remove rind and cut into long slices
1 carrot
juice from 1/2 a lime (no rind)

Snozzleberry Punch

10 strawberries
2 small apples - quartered
1 small tangerine - keep rind on

Wedgie Water

1 celery stalk
1 cup grape tomatoes
1 carrot
1 garlic clove
handful of flat leaf parsley
splash of worcestershire sauce
