Pear Apple Ginger Juice
2 celery stalks
1" piece of fresh ginger
Juice of 1 lime
*Sweet Tango, if you have not tried these yet, you owe it too yourself, they are AMAZING!
I must say, for being an "on the fly" juice combination, this was really good. Clean and refreshing, and it made a TON. I'd say almost 3 cups.
Some notes about juicing pears:
Soft pears will often clog your juicer as they can block the holes in the sieve of the juicing screen in masticating juicers, like the Omega 8006.
|Juicing screen is on the left
Pure, fresh pear juice can be a very thick for some peoples tastes, (especially my better-half), so you may to prefer to dilute it with other fruits and vegetables, or add some filtered water.
I did both. Even though I alternated the pears with the harder fruits and veggies, I still poured some water into the juicer, which cleared out a bit of the pear pulp that was stuck in the screen. But, even after all that, L still found it to be too thick, so I poured the remaining juice in a glass bottle and froze for a later day.
This actually worked out well, because it became the base of a smoothie which I had for breakfast this morning:
BONUS Breakfast Smoothie:
1 cup flax milk, vanilla flavored
1 tbsp flax seeds
1 frozen banana
1 cup of pear apple ginger smoothie, half frozen
1 tbsp hemp protein powder
Blend and drink to start you day off great ^_^
