Juiced on garbage

The madness continues. After some research, I bought the juicer pictured above, a refurbished Breville (pronounced Bre-vill) Ikon scored on Ebay--$130 dollars, free shipping, no tax. We're nothing if not parsimonious here at Nake-id Knits.

After washing all the components, I threw caution to the wind and emptied out the crisper: Two apples, three stalks celery, some nice-looking romaine, some not-so-nice-looking romaine, half a cuke and a banana that had seen better days. The thing grinds, munches and groans and after a bit begins sputtering celadon-colored juice into a container. It's all very easy, if time-consuming, and requires a lot of product for very little liquid.

How was the taste? A nose-pincher.

Surely you have better recipes to share.

My 2 favs:

- 1 large carrot, 1 Fuji apple, 1 lemon (this is my daily go-to recipe)

- 1 large carrot, 1 Fuji apple, 1 lemon, 3-4 small strawberries, 1 orange, a handful of kale, 1 celery stalk (you can add in any random greens you have in the fridge)

The fruit sweetens the juice and give it an amazing yummy summer flavor. Enjoy!
