In our local social sphere everyone and their cousin (quite literally) seem to be experiencing, or contemplating, the benefits of juicing. I was willingly swept into the current. As a result, I have tried more fruit and vegetable juice blends in the last 2 months than ever before in my life.
One fresh juice, in particular, has captured my palate. In fact, I can daydream about its winning flavor as I write. Something about its clean sweetness and tartness, balanced with a mellow hint of pear and parsley, make it my green swirl of choice.
Try out my “green-some” blend below. For a look at what inspired many of us to get out our juicers, watch the DVD entitled Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.
5 green apples
3 pears (Bosc give a unique taste)
2 lemons (peeled)
1 large bunch of parsley
Notes: Experiment and modify to your heart´s content until the balance of flavor is right for you. If you´re low on parsley, throw in some cilantro to get the herbaceous undertone. For a smaller amount, use 3 apples, 2 pears, 1 lemon, and a little less parsley. Be sure to serve it right away in a transparent glass, if at all possible. Drink slowly and deliciously!
