Get Juicy: Strawberry Massacre

10698594_10100179571514467_1362084286776925829_nIt’s full-on Spring here in Australia, which means it’s STRAWBERRY season and the strawberries are flowing like wine! Or, like strawberry juice. Or, in this case, like strawberry and zucchini juice. Weird, I know, but trust me it works.

Now I know you’re thinking “That juice looks like…bleep” but I promise it’s awesome-ly delicious and such an unexpected combination. Give it a shot. Go on, try the weird juice.

So here goes, you adventurous juicing fool you…

INGREDIENTS: 

2 cups strawberries (leaves removed)

2 zucchini (stemmed)

2 celery stalks (the whole darn thing)

1 apple (core and stem removed)

Strawberry Massacre Ingredients

Just chop your veggies to fit your juicer and away you go.

Most of the time I like to juice the veggie types individually so I can collect the pulp for later, but that can be a bit time-consuming so it’s your prerogative.

In this case, I juiced the zucchini first because I like to keep the pulp untainted and freeze it until I have collected enough for zucchini bread.

Next I toss in the celery and save that pulp for use in my Homemade Veggie Stock.

Third comes the apple, whose pulp I save for my Cinnamon-Spiced Homemade Apple Sauce (recipe coming soon).

Lastly the strawberry… whose pulp is pretty negligible but can be save for used in smoothies or just stirred into yogurt.

Again, I know that sounds like a lot of work and it’s totally up to you and how many minutes late for work you already are… but it’s worth it! I find it so satisfying every time I create something new with the “waste” of another recipe.

Now mix up that ombré delicousness and drink your veggie servings for the day 🙂
