SATURDAY JUICE BOOST

 

 

I thought it was about time I got my butt into gear and pulled out my brand new juicer which needed a good workout.

I was given a very simple but fruity fresh summer recipe to trial. So here it goes – 

 

Ingredients you will need – 

  • 1 cup of green grapes 
  • Handful of mint leaves 
  • 1 large cucumber 
  • Sparkling water (I used San Pallegrino) 
  • Ice (if desired)

I basically just chopped everything up and popped into the juicer. Give it a good stir before pouring into a glass. I went a bit fancy smancy and used a jam jar with handle but a normal glass is completely fine. To top up pour some sparkling water in with some ice cubes and a bit of mint for garnish. 

Don’t forget the colourful strays 🙂

I’m always left with far too much so rather than leave in the fridge (which is not always as fresh once you have done this) I added into some colourful ice block moulds and put them in the fridge to freeze. I picked these up off Amazon which is way easier than trying to look around shops for hours on end (well I think so anyway).

So there you go a quick, healthy and nutritious afternoon snack to get you through until dinner time. Nice.
