These days we’re more appreciative of juice.
When I’m at work, I order fresh juice almost every other day (Bank Negara juice subsidy FTW!) When I’m onsite, I stop by Juiceworks if I have some cash to spare after lunch.
On the way home, Reza also buys us juice from MBG sometimes, to drink while commuting.
Over the weekend, the thing that’s always there on our grocery list is juice.
Why? Not sure. It’s not like we’re turning that health conscious. We started drinking juice any months ago. I initially wanted to reap the benefits from drinking juice to build a stronger body so I started stocking up juice, then he did the same — in fact, we have our own juices. Slowly we got the hang of drinking juice and it became like a regular thing.
But we don’t really make juice at home.
This weekend though, while deciding which juice to buy at the grocer, Reza suggested that we replicate the juices we drink at juice bars. Instead of just drinking from the bottle, he asked whether we could just add fresh fruits and other things to existing juice to give it more oomph.
So we brought home our base juice, frozen berries (I never gave frozen berried a thought until he suggested it, it’s totally brilliant!) and other fresh fruits. Took out the blender (an easier machine to use and clean compared to the juicer), poured juice and placed the frozen berries and fresh fruits inside it. To give it some kick, I also inserted my oats, omega mix and chia seeds.
Oh yeah, not forgetting ice. Lots and lots of ice.
Then, I blended everything.
Result? I thought it was good and Reza concurred. Because I’m more generous with the ingredients than the juice bars, it’s definitely more layan. Healthier, too. Level 100:
When asked how the homemade juice fared, Asna gave her seal of approval:
Excuse me now, I need to make more juice.
