Tips

No juicer? No problem. Try this DIY version of blended and strained juice instead: Coarsely chop all ingredients. First, place the soft and/or juice ingredients in the blender and process until liquefied. Then, add the remaining ingredients; blend until liquefied. Cut two 24-inch-long pieces of cheesecloth. Completely unfold each piece and then stack the pieces on top of each other. Fold the double stack in half so you have a 4-layer stack of cloth. Line a large bowl with the cheesecloth and pour the contents of the blender into the center. Gather the edges of the cloth together in one hand and use the other hand to twist and squeeze the bundle to extract all the juice from the pulp. Wear a pair of rubber gloves if you don't want the juice to stain your hands.

I thought the balance of flavors was great. I added a cucumber (because why not) and everyone in the family loved it! Read More

great juice recipe! I made this in my Vitamix and then strained the pulp with a nut milk bag. I added some water to get it to blend and used an orange instead of a grapefruit because that's what I had on hand. Perfect balance of sweet ginger and veg! Loved it and will be making it often. Read More
