Happy Friday, friends! We are nearing the end of the month (can you believe it?!) which means it’s also time for another Recipe Redux post.
May’s Recipe Redux theme is all about DIY: Kitchen Essentials edition. From spice blends and condiments, to homemade broth and nut butters, we are sharing the kitchen staples we choose to make at home.
Homemade frozen waffles are totally the way to go rather than buying them and this recipe from 100 Days of Real Food has been my favorite over the years. I’ve never felt the need to change it in any way, which says a lot because I’m always making changes to recipes! Salad dressing is another item that I always make at home because it’s just sooooo easy. Plus the taste is far superior and generally contains less sugar and sodium than any similar store-bought dressings.
But today I’m sharing something that until this year, I would have previously purchased. JUICE! Earlier this week, I shared my thoughts on juicing and whether or not a juicer is worth the investment, and now I have a simple homemade juice recipe to share!
As I demonstrated in my previous post using the Juicer_Payback_Calculator_v1.0, making fresh juice at home has saved me money and now it’s something I prefer making at home because I can create new concoctions all the time! This Pineapple Cucumber Mint Juice is loaded with vitamin C and is good for inflammation, digestion, and immune system health.
Pineapple Cucumber Mint Juice
2 1/2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
1 cucumber, unpeeled
1 lime, skin removed
10 fresh mint leaves
2 inch piece of ginger, skin removed
1. Process ingredients in juicer according to instructions. Drink juice immediately or store in an air tight jar in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
Have you thought about making juice at home? Any juice recipes you would like to see on The Nutrition Adventure with a certain focus (like digestive health, skin health)? Leave a comment and let me know!
