Made another juice today….AND Brody suggested that I make yogurt freezer pops with the juice…so I did!! Brody is my 3.5 year old son. See below why I call this one “Hidden Gem” Juice.
But, what I didn’t tell him is that I slipped a special hidden gem inside the juice!! See recipe below.
Juicing can be rather expensive, depending on what fruits and vegetables you use. The photo below shows juice from 2 cups of blueberries. That’s about $4 right there.
Why I call the juice I made today “Hidden Gem” Juice. I had no idea where I was going with my juicing efforts this morning…but when Brody said to make freezer pops out of it, I had a thought and that thought was…maybe I’ll put a veggie in there and he will never know…so I did.
Hidden Gem Juice
2 C Blueberries
2 C Pineapples
2 Handfuls of Spinach (the gem!)
Doesn’t it look like a gem to you?
This juice made about 8 oz. and taste really good. Can’t even taste the spinach.
What do I do with all the left-overs? Anyone? How about if I add it to a quiche? Or perhaps yogurt? Depending on what I use to juice with, I can do these things. I don’t like to waste food. That’s blueberries, pineapples and spinach. I hate to throw that out.
Right now, it’s in the frig. That’s a lot of nutrients down the drain if I don’t reuse. I would love
to hear ideas on what to do with the left-overs…anyone?
Frozen Hidden Gem Juice Pops
3/4 C Non-fat plain Greek Yogurt
Agave to taste
1/2 C Juice from above (you can drink the rest!)
Mix Agave in with yogurt – stir
Pour juice in with that and stir until blended
Pour mixture in freezer pops and freeze – that’s all!
The real test is to see if Brody will eat it…..(I bet he does). After nap, I’ll let you know!!
Juicing is really fun and I’m liking it more and more. I do like making up my own recipes. And Brody loves to help. That’s a win win for me. Stay tuned.
AND……he liked it!
