Wordless Wednesday: A Failed Experiment


We bought a juicer.  Rather than carefully reading up on recipes, blending the perfect ingredients and enjoying a healthy and delicious drink, we did what any reasonable person would do:  we took a bunch of random fruits and veggies and tossed them in to see what would happen.

See everything on the counter?  Apples, oranges, cucumbers, celery, spinach, carrots?  It’s all in there.  Plus a few more things too.

Well.  That looks…frothy.

We drank it anyway.  Well, some of it.  It actually got worse and worse the more we drank.  The word “gross” doesn’t do justice to it.

We’ve used recipes ever since then.  Much, much better.

    With a little practice we were able to tune ours in pretty good. I have to admit I sometimes add a little sugar.

    oh lord I can only imagine!

    I have to admit that we had some pretty nasty combinations when we first started using ours but after a bit – mmmm, you can get some good ones that still have the spinach &/or kale in them.

    I find that if it's not sweet enough, just add another apple or carrot. That always works.

    If you can make something similar to "Green Goodness", Ill buy it from you vs paying $6-$7 a bottle.

    I'm jealous! I would love to have a juicer, although I know I would do the same thing as you and just throw random ingredients in. I'm not one to follow recipes ;-)

    Love the glasses! Sadly Bottoms Up should have been down the drain…
    Still was a lot of fun making them.

    I’m curious about what you put in. We throw random stuff in our blendtec all the time and rarely have a bad juice/smoothie!

      It was SOOOO bad. I think we added too much celery. The flavor of celery was overpowering and didn’t mix well with everything else.

      This morning I did two oranges, a cucumber, a carrot and a slice of ginger and it was HEAVENLY.

    Oh boy, all I can say is, “You’re a braver man than I, Gunga Dinn”! lol Just kiddin’. No, I follow recipes. I try not to experiment. It only gets me in trouble. Happy New Year to ya.
