Juice/Smoothie Challenge: Day 2
This morning I tried the sweet cravings recipe. It is supposed to fight off all of my terrible sweet cravings. I haven't had any cravings, but some days I don't, so I'm not totally sure it's because of the recipe.
On to taste - This isn't the best concoction I've tried. It wasn't terrible either, though. I thought I would hate it because I hate celery unless it has been cooked and drowned in the juices of turkey wings. I think the apple really helped to cut the taste of the celery. I also added more cinnamon than I probably should have - it poured out a little too fast.
All in all, today's juice was decent.
On Tuesday I will be making the Dr. Oz snack smoothie. This is the between meal snack for those on the Dr. Oz 2 day cleanse. I've read mixed reviews about taste, but I am really looking forward to it. This will be my first time dealing with artichoke in juice/smoothie form.
Recipe (I'm going to do this one as a smoothie, though I may juice the kale and add it to the bullet for the smoothie blend.
5 Kale leaves
1/2 cup pineapple
2 artichoke hearts (can or jar)
1/2 squeezed lemon
1/2 cup fresh mint
This actually sounds like a delicious concoction to me. Anything with mint and pineapple have me sold. And, I love juicing with Kale...it's such a rich and hearty taste that it makes me feel like I just had a healthy meal, lol.
Oh yeah...can't wait to try this tomorrow.
