Juice Recipe #21: Thanksgiving Juice

I can’t believe I haven’t had a single post since right before Storm Sandy came and turned mine and so many other people’s lives around. I pray for those whose lives will never be the same again and it is admirable to see the country come together to help in any way possible.  Like so many of you Thanksgiving is truly one of my favorite holidays and in the spirit of gratitude for all that we have, are and can do I would like to take the time to list 5 things that I am beyond grateful for.

1. The idea and inspiration to begin this blog this year. Eating and Living well is my life’s passion and this blog has been a wonderful channel for expressing that. Thank you World Wide Web, thank you Word Press, thank you Breville Juice Fountain Plus, thank you Olympus Pen epl1 and thank you Veggie Markets.

2. Thank you to every follower, reader and ‘liker of my posts’. Thank you for validating my work and taking the time to support my blog and sharing in the excitement that a little homemade juice can bring.

3. There are no words to express how grateful I am for the strength and health that I have had this year. I have gone the entire year without so much as a sniffle. This time last year I was suffering from my umpteenth cold, couldn’t breathe and felt like death warmed over. Yup! It was that bad. Health is our Wealth.

4. I am thankful with every breathe that I take for my AMAZING family but most importantly my beloved husband. He is my rock, my #1 fan and my best friend. I am grateful that he tastes almost every one of my kitchen creations and gives me feedback that is sometimes a bit too honest 🙂

5. I am thankful for this juice recipe I created last week while feeling mooshy and happy inside. It awoke my taste buds and got me excited to juice like crazy again.

  • 2 cups of pineapple, chopped
  • 2 oranges, peeled 
  • 1/2 an inch of a ginger root

~Juice and Give Thanks!~

  1. This looks super yummy. I’m going to try it in my Vita-mix. Someday I may get the Breville. I do have my eye on it. For awhile I was using a lesser model and the waste was too much on the greens. I will let you know how it goes in the blender.

    • Guess what? I’ve got a Vitamix too and just made it and it’s just as delicious. It’s super frothy though so I sieved it and it came out great! Thanks for the comment. Happy Juicing! Now I just need to freeze my left over pineapple before it goes bad so I can use it in my smoothies!

  2. I just tried it. It was awesome! The ginger gives it a super kick. I added 2 cups of coconut water, 2 whole mandarins, and frozen pineapple. I know it’s not as good as straight juicing but it was still yummy.
