This post is part of Williams-Sonoma Juice week.
Juicing is something that you have to ease yourself into, let’s be honest they don’t always look attractive and all the ingredients might not appeal to everyone’s palate.
Some juices are an acquired taste, others you like right off the bat.
Working at a health food store I have tried my fair share of juices, some awful, some okay and some delicious. When creating juices is all trial and error and unfortunately you still gotta drink the errors because you can’t waste all that produce and trust me, A LOT of produce goes into making one cup of juice.
One thing I never thought I would like in my juice is ginger. I have never been much of a ginger person, it was too spicy for me. Until someone introduced me to ginger chews and I thought maybe I could be swayed. I then started trying all the juices with ginger in them and started to really like the spicy kick they gave them and now it’s rare I will make a juice for myself without ginger in it.
And besides, ginger is so great for you! It helps aid in digestion, helps alleviate stomach aches, bloating and gas. It is an anti-inflammatory, and immune boosting!
This week William-Sonoma asked me to create a juice that “bites back.” So I made a juice for you that packs a bit of a punch with ginger and cilantro. I would recommend this juice for the experienced juice drinker or the adventurous one!
1 cup frozen pineapple and 1 cup water
Handful of kale
4 stalks celery
2 inch pieces of ginger
4 stalks of cilantro
*measurements will vary every time you juice depending on how much juice the fruit or vegetable actually holds.
1.) In a blender blend your pineapple with water.
2.) In your juicer, juice remaining vegetables and fruit.
3.) Add pineapple to your juice and give it a good shake/stir.
4.) Drink up
Do you own a juicer? Which one?
Do you like juicing?
