Momma Macaroon is a juice-lover who doesn’t own a juicer (Go figure!). It’s very important to her and often tells us about the benefits of it. Rather than make juice herself, she goes to a local juice bar to get her favorite blend of carrot, celery and apple. Straight up is how she likes it: no sugar, spice or anything else “nice.”
Yesterday, while doing her “health food” shopping, Mom mentioned that she felt like having a juice and asked if our Vita-Mix could do the job. I told her that since it seemed to do every else, it could handle making a juice. So, at Whole Foods, she picked up some carrots, celery and a couple of Gala apples and asked if I could make a batch for her today.
After taking care of Sunday errands, I got started on her Juicing with the Vita-Mix was super-easy. All I had to do split the carrots and celery in half and toss in the whole apple with some water. It could less than 2 minutes (if that long) to whip it all up. Artie and I snuck in a quick sip, actually really liking it, before sharing it with Mom. She was pleased with the results.
So guess whose home is going to become a juice bar for Momma Macaroon?
Momma Macaroon’s Carrot-Apple Juice
Source: Mom’s Favorite Mix
- 2-3 c. ice water
- 2 whole carrots, cut in half
- 2 whole celery ribs, cut in half
- 1 medium apple, Gala or Honeycrisp preferred
Notes: The apple’s peel, core and seeds can stay, if your blender is powerful like the Vita-Mix. Also, depending on the size of your blender, you may need to cut the apple, carrots and celery into smaller pieces.
- Place all ingredients into blender’s container. Cover with lid and blend on high
- Blend for approximately 2 minutes. If needed, use a tamper to get the apple, carrots and celery liquefied
On a side note, today, Artichoke did a testimonial for Vita-Mix on “In the Kitchen with David!” So cool to hear him on my favorite shopping “show” on QVC. He even mentioned that we were vegan and how great the Vita-Mix works for us. YAY ARTIE!
