A good dose of vitamins

Do you have the habit of popping vitamins/mineral pills everyday?

I used to do that. Multi-vit pills used to be part of my daily breakfast. Ever since I've bought the Vita-mix (VM), I've channeled the budget for pills to fruits and vegetables. In any case, nothing beats the real thing.

Today I made my first green juice, instead of my normal pink, orange, yellow ones. Though it may look weird, it actually tasted good. The two younger kids even ask for second serving. So I'm sure you'll like it too. :)

Healthy Fruit & Vegetable Juice

2 bunches of spinach
2 stalks of celery
2 oranges
1 red apple
2 starfruits (i small, 1 medium)
2 cups of Cranberry & Pomegranate (No Sugar Added) Juice
1 cup of ice cubes

Put all ingredients into the VM and blend using high speed for 1 minute. Use the tamper to push the fruits and vegetables down.

Would like to check with you when you use VM to knead the bread dough, did you use the same container to make juice or a different container meant for bread. Look forward to hear from you and you have a nice weekend!

Thank you

hi hi you have been tagged.

KWF said...

ting, glad you like the breads. :)

serene, I use the same wet cup to knead my bread and make juice. But certain recipes are not really suitable to be kneaded with VM, especially those with very wet dough or very dry dough.

Edith, thanks for the tag. I'll check it out later.

Same as you, I shifted pills to fresh fruit & vegetable juice as well.

Here's the juice I used to have in the morning or you've heard about it perhaps :

5 green veggies juice
- 1/2 green apple
- 1/2 green bell pepper
- 1/4 cucumber
- 1/4 bitter melon
- 1 or 2 stalks of celery

chumpman, a toast to more natural & healthier lifestyle! I must try your version one day, but not too sure whether the kids will take it, with the bitter melon...is that equivalent to bittergourd?
