All this excitement encouraged me to order a box of fruit for juicing. I've had a juicer for some time but like most households it ended up in the place household appliances go to die, i.e. nestled next to the bread maker and all the appendages to my food processor that I don't understand. Imagine my great joy, then, when my juicing box arrived packed with two kilos of apples, two kilos of oranges, two kilos of carrots, a big pile of beetroot, ginger, lemons and some celery.
Naturally I got to work immediately and having had some reasonable success with some carrot and apple juice last week, I thought to myself, 'hey why not blend up some more veggie juice?' I'll be so intensely healthy I will never get a cold again! In went some carrots, a nice sweet apple, a beetroot and, gulp, some celery. The emerging juice, courtesy of the beets, looked like something that would be at home on the Vampire Diaries. Undeterred I took a big swig.
|Dalek like juicer and dodgy looking juice!|
It was horrific.
Seriously, never, ever, ever juice celery. Nothing can mask that taste. And adding beets, well it kind of just taste like celery mixed with mud. Urgh.
|The only place for celery if you ask me|
Summer Tastes Peachy!
1 Banana (peeled and in rough chunks)
1 Peach (just chop the stone out)
2 Oranges (peeled and juiced)
One Tablespoon of Natural Yoghurt
Chuck in a blender, whizz it up for a minute or so and there you have it. Lovely smooth, summery smoothie
– and not a stick of celery in sight!!
