    So i always failed at making a tasty juice drink. In my eyes everything goes together so i just put whatever in my fridge in the juicer, and it usually comes out gross i leave the kitchen angry with some watericon_cool.gif

    My question is, do you guys make your own juice recipes or follow from booksicon_surprised.gif

    I'm assuming you mean blending different things together.

    It's like anything in the kitchen. You have to learn what goes together and what doesn't. Just because you like steak and you like chocolate, doesn't mean you can put them together.

    Follow recipes until you understand why each of the ingredients are used and in what proportions. Then, you start to experiment.

    Hey !

    Try 2 parts low fat yogurt, with 1 part low fat milk, 1 part banana, 1 part strawberry, 1/4 part liquid honey and or peanut butter ! icon_smile.gif

    for jucing: an apple, strawberries and blueberries is always my fav. or swap in an orange for the apple, or a pear. the trick is simplicity!

    My favorite (fattening mind you, i AM trying to gain weight...so you may be able to make some substitutions who knows..) protein milkshake is ::

    One serving Protein Powder (whey.. vanilla or strawberry) One Banana, Two Scoops Vanilla ice cream, Enough milk to cover that all up (i never measure that...) a teaspoon of vanilla extract and squirt honey all over it icon_smile.gif shake well and mmmm icon_smile.gif (if you want super cold, crush some ice and toss it in the mixture)


    Otherwise - my favorite fruit drink is just a mash up of berries (whatever i have in the fridge.. strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc...) with a little water to make it smoothen out and covered in crushed ice and honey.

    Heh I'm imagining you walking away with a big ol mess behind you.
    In the juicer I love carrot, celery, and apple. With the smoothie maker I love simply strawberry with honey, sometimes mix in blueberries and a banana. Perhaps a plain ol banana (and strawberry?) milkshake.
    Now I'm thirsty for a cold strawberry smoothie...with mango and pineapple?

    Juicing?......Whoops wrong thread.....(turns around to walk out- stops and thinks)

    "To the guys round these parts....juicing means something all together different. Of course being ripped out of your brains is nothing but COMPLETELY NATURAL!"
