Pineapple Jalapeno Green Juice

A big round of applause for Thirst Juice Co. for not only being one of my favorite juice spots, but for introducing the idea of adding jalapeno to a juice.

I’m sure this is not a groundbreaking idea, but it certainly was new to me and I get their same drink everytime I go there simply, because their pineapple, kale, cucumber, jalapeno drink is unlike any other I’ve ever had. Having not made my own juice in what feels like YEARS, I what super excited to finally dust off my juicer and try and recreate Thirst’s delicious drink.

Honestly-it might be the most delicious green juice I’ve ever had-store bought or otherwise! Consdiering there’s not a TON of added sweetness and no beets, carrots or apple (I’ve recently become allergic to the two latter) I was shocked at how easy it was to chug down. Usually I struggle with a really heavy green juice, but this was gone in no time and I was full for hours afterward. The jalapeno doesnt even add too much of a kick for those of you who are worried about too much heat. The added pepper is great for blood circulation and your metabolism which makes it extra great for summer :)

MAKES ABOUT A 20 OZ JUICE

6 large kale leaves

4 large Romaine leaves

1 cucumber

3 stalks celery

1 pear

1 cup pineapple

1/2 jalapeno, deseeded

Juice of one lime

  • Juice it all, except the lime-add lime juice after everything else is juiced!

Easy Pasta Salad

I don’t know about you guys, but when it comes to this sweltering, humid New England weather, the LAST thing I want to do is eat a warm meal. And nothing says a perfect, chilled easy dish quite like your basic pasta salad. As much as I TRY to be gluten-free, sometimes I feel like […]

Blueberry Creme Smoothie Bowl

Isn’t it funny when you THINK you’re going to have more time and a clearer schedule, you actually end up having less? The beautiful weather might be to blame, too. Since I’d rather be reading in the sun most days instead of slaving away in a hot kitchen. Warmer days by the pool mean I’ve […]

Avocado Grilled Cheese

003

I mean, really. It just doesn’t get any better than this. The really great kitchen moments seem to happen unexpectedly. I had some leftover butternut squash mac and cheese sauce leftover from a batch of pasta last week and I didn’t know what to do with it. Usually I’ll pour it oven stuffed potatoes but […]
