Announcement : Tasty and Healthy Juices on Thursdays with Two Healthy Juices

To all my readers I would like to let you know that from today every Thursday I will post healthy and tasty juices that I make for my family . Today I am posting 2 healthy and tasty juice recipes.

We have been thinking of buying a juicer for many years but limited counter space always bothered me .Well the space is never going to get bigger in the kitchen , finally we bought it and we have been enjoying healthy juices for sometime now.For kids its fun to make juice of their favorite fruits and they are enjoying healthy and fresh fruit juices.

Juicers are surely a very nice and useful equipment for the kitchen.We can make fresh,healthy and sugar-free juices and don't have to worry about the sugars and preservatives in the juices.Not only the fruits,we can juice the vegetables too and make healthy juices that kids and the entire family can enjoy.Not an exaggeration but I mentioned earlier too that we rarely drink store bought juices in my house and so we are stuck to eating only certain fruits .Now we are enjoying wide variety of juices with combination of vegetables and fruits.The best part is kids can choose what goes in the juicer and make their own flavorful juices.When they make it gives them more satisfaction and they enjoy every sip of their juice.

 But first let me make it clear that I am not posting these juices as a promotion to any juicer. Everyone is different--- a food that is good for one person may not be right for others so I request you to check your allergies or any other concerns you have with these fruits and vegetable juices that I post here before you make or try them at home.I am making these juices from the recipe booklet provided by the juicer company and some are my own creations.I am just posting the juices we are trying and tasting at home.Enjoy and try these wonderful juices at your own risk.

Now coming to today's recipes . Today I am posting 2 healthy juices with the combination of vegetables and fruits.

Juice Recipe 1 :
----------------------------


This juice has the following ingredients ---------------------

Water Melon............1/2 of medium sized watermelon
Orange.....................3
Carrots.....................2
Zucchini....................1green
Ginger......................1inch piece
Lemon Juice.............1tsp

First rinse all the fruits nicely under cold water.If using a juicer to juice these above ingredients peel the oranges and remove the hard skin of the watermelon and cut it into the size that they can fit into the juicer mouth.Juice the watermelon followed by carrots followed by oranges followed by Zucchini and finally ginger.
Add a little lemon juice to the squeezed juice ,mix well and serve it immediately.

The above quantity yielded 4 large glasses of juice.The color of this juice was red.

Note :
--------
1) Always juice a soft fruit followed by a hard fruit so that you can get more juice out your ingredients.


Juice Recipe 2 :
-----------------------



This is another healthy juice that I made.This recipe I followed from the juicer booklet . I used all the ingredients mentioned in it except for the cantaloupe .The recipe did not ask for ginger but I added ginger in it.

This juice is a blend of the following ingredients-----------------

Oranges.............................2
Grape Fruits.......................2
Apples...............................2
Pears.................................2
Carrots..............................2
Ginger................................1inch

Put the carrots in the juicer followed by grapefruit followed by pears followed by apples and finally ginger.Pass all thes ingredients through the juicer in the order mentioned and finally you have a healthy  juice mix it well ans serve immediately .

This yielded 4 large glasses of juice.The color of the juice was light orange.

Note :

  4. Kiran, a wonderful idea. And what lovely juices. I love how you have mixed fruit and veggies, I mean just 2 glasses of those juices should be like full servings of your veggies and fruits. Amazing thought. I always wanted to buy a juicer, but bit skeptical. You are now inspiring me. I like your point that kids would love to extract their own juices and consume them proudly. Hmm... I am thinking now :)
