Orange Crudites | Orange, Cucumber, Carrot and Celery Juice Recipe
At first taste I wasn’t too excited about Orange Crudites (comes from The Big Book of Juices). Maybe it was because I just had a taste of what I made for Virginia. Virginia likes it simple. A glass of orange and apple juice. One orange and one apple. Simple and sweet in the morning.
So I had a taste of hers and then made Orange Crudites and tasted it. I wasn’t impressed at first. But, after cleaning up and pouring my new recipe into a glass and adding some ice cubes, I tasted it again. DELICIOUS!
I realized this is one recipe that needs a few ice cubes, at least for me anyway. The ice diluted it just enough (very slightly) so that the celery didn’t over power it. There was just a hint of celery and cucumber now. I like it!
Maybe next time I’ll cut the top off of the celery and peel the cucumber. I usually peel the cucumber anyway, but this time I just washed it. I don’t like those conventionally grown cucumbers that are waxed. The wax isn’t good for you anyway and that’s why I peel them.
According to Juice Recipe Builder this juice recipe contains: 124 Calories, 85mg of Sodium, 826mg of Potassium, 22.98g of Sugars, 3.46g of Protein and lots of vitamins and minerals. Overall a very healthy drink.
