If you’ve got a juicer, a juice bar, or a raw restaurant nearby, you’ve probably figured out how to get your hands on nutrient-dense liquid nutrition. But did you know that you can also make juice in your blender? With the help of a nut mylk bag (available at health food stores and online) or even cheese cloth if you’re in a pinch, you can use your plain old blender to make delicious juice. To be fair, I tend to make blended juice in a Vitamix and it’s been awhile since I’ve used a less advanced blender to get the job done, but I have done it, and yes, it does work.
This weekend, while visiting my brother Asher in Los Angeles, he took a few breaks from working on exciting projects at his film studio Pollution Studios to drink juice and hang with me. Here is the technique and recipe we used to make juice together!
Juice In A Blender! (Serves 1-2)
1. Chop all veggies, fruit, greens.
2. Blend all ingredients.
3. Pour smoothie mix into a bowl with a nut mylk bag or cheesecloth. Pictured is a cheesecloth straining system.
4. Remove pulp-filled nut mylk bag or cheese cloth (freeze or immediately use in other recipes, if you’d like!) and pour strained juice into vessels of your choice.
My brother…enjoying fresh juice!
Voila! Enjoy! How do you like to make or get your juice?
