…no not the Jersey Shore definition of juicing up – I meant with real fruits and veggies! I was all hyped up after first of 5 5-hour cooking classes earlier this week at the I.C.E. (Institute of Culinary Education) in NYC so even though Vinny, my dependable Vita Mix can more than handle big chunks of carrots, I decided to help him out a little and practice my knife skillz at the same time.
A simple julienne to brunoise… some additional veggies and voila a breakfast fit for a queen! …or the Jolly Green Giant at least 😉
- 3/4 cups finely diced carrots (about 3 carrots)
- 4 large Romaine lettuce leaves
- 1.5 cups chopped macintosh apples
- 2 tbsp minced fresh ginger
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 2.5 cups water
Yup, earmuffs+a hat – I get coooold!
