Going forward on my various recipes - which I have juiced but have no-names-for-yet, I'm thinking .....
"Just Another Manic Monday" Mango
Tuesday's Terrific Tomatoe/Tomahto - "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off"
"When Summer Comes Around" - Watermelon Wednesday
"Thriller" Thursday - Cool and Sweet With A Bite
"Friday's Child" Chugger
"Summer Wine'' Saturday Smoothie
Sunday's "Sundown" Sippy
My tastes in music are very all-across-the-board, you probably didn't even notice, and I didn't even include my classical preferences.
.........well you get the idea. Any suggestions for me for this recipe?
You will need:
2 sticks celery
12 small carrots
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 large ripe tomato
1/2 medium size cucumber
1 ripe banana
squeeze of lemon juice
Chop the larger pieces into smaller chunks. I used already-bagged baby carrots, they have a sweeter taste.
If you are new to juicing, I suggest alternating
the softer ingredients followed by the carrots or celery for example. I personally find this method to extract the most juice from the softer fruit and it seems to clean the extraction basket at the same time.
Because I had chopped everything down to a manageable size, it went into the chute very smoothly.
Add your squeeze of lemon juice on the top of the veggies going in.
Lovely rich color!
The verdict is: Rich, smooth, semi-sweet veggie flavor. I could taste the celery through everything else, and so if you are not that 'into' celery, just use one stalk.
The amount of ingredients that I used only made this one glassful. The consistency was not that thick, so I would not dilute it down myself.

I enjoyed the beverage-with-no-name so much, I made up a second batch all ready to go for tomorrow!
