A lovely work colleague kindly shared this juice recipe with me. It is so refreshing and ensures all 'on the turn' bananas are not wasted. Just chop and freeze in a plastic container and use as required, you can do the same with the fresh pineapple.
Baby spinach leaves
Chunk fresh ginger
Almond drink or if you prefer water
4-6 Brazil nuts or Almonds
Just whizz and enjoy.
My colleague uses Kale which tastes perfectly fine but to me baby spinach tastes superior.
Do you have any tasty juice recipes you would like to share?
Note this was prior to my current spending 'diet' because I don't think almond milk and baby spinach can be described as essentials!
Not a juice no but I freeze banana chunks & blitz them for a breakfast shake along with cooked porridge oats, dried prunes or dates & a splash of milk xReplyDelete
Sounds goods, even though prunes bring back awful memories of school dinners.Delete
Your juice sounds lovely .... and very healthy!ReplyDelete
It's tastes good and makes me feel virtuous too.Delete
That is a great idea to freeze the banana and pineapple! I was saving two bananas to make banana bread and then they got thrown away!!! Not by my of course! Should have frozen them!! xxReplyDelete
I have to confess I've sent a few to the banana graveyard in my time.Delete
I'd never thought of freezing bananas either! It makes a lot of sense (and saves baking cake with them). I really hate throwing food away; it rarely happens in this house as 'Resourceful' is my middle name!ReplyDelete
That chocolate in your previous post looks rather wonderful, by the way. Where did you buy it? And was it nice?
Yes, I'm a week into my healthy eating plan but that doesn't stop me living vicariously through others ;)
The chocolate is from Waitrose, which blows my money saving credentials out of the water!Delete
That does sound delicious. I shoved a very ripe banana in the freezer the other day (with the intention of making dairy free chocolate ice cream) but now realise I should have chopped it into slices first. I may need a chain saw.ReplyDelete
It is really nice, I thoroughly recommend it.Delete
Funny but although I freeze chunks of bananas ready for whizzing into 'ice cream' I hadn't thought of using them in my morning Nutriblast until the other week. It was a real 'Duh!!' moment when I realised :-)ReplyDelete
Since my daughter left home we seem to have lots of bananas going slowly over ripe. She likes them turning black, I like them all still yellow. Great idea - I'll freeze them till she's home again;)ReplyDelete
Did you know that almond milk is dead easy to make? Soak blanched almonds overnight, rinse and discard water in the morning, blitz in the blender with fresh water and strain through muslin. http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-almond-milk-at-home-cooking-lessons-from-the-kitchn-189996
Frugal and much more tasty than bought almond milk. Doesn't last as long though, just two or three days so make a small batch. Must be lots of preservatives in the bought stuff, which lasts a week. Cheers, Rusty
