Good Morning Juice - #breakfastseries


Good Morning Juice (Curtis Stone)

This week at IHCC, we are making any Curtis Stone's cocktail, iced tea, other non-alcoholic sipper, fresh fruit juice blend or smoothie.


I have chosen Curtis Stone's Good Morning Juice because I have never tried adding spinach into my fruit juices before and I want to find out how it tastes like.

Recipe adapted from here.

Ingredients:
(Serves 1)

2 Granny Smith apples, quartered
1 medium ripe banana
1 celery stalk, cut into 4 pieces
1/2 cup frozen spinach, don't thaw
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2-inch piece ginger, peeled

How to:

Blend all ingredients together and serve immediately.



I use imported frozen spinach because local spinach (or bayam) is not meant to be eaten raw (as far as I know). I don't know if adding them will alter the taste of the juice.

I like the frozen spinach, it doesn't alter the taste at all. Also, I add banana because I want its natural sweetness to balance the green apples' tartness. The ginger gives this juice a delightful refreshing aftertaste.


I'm linking this post with I Heart Cooking Clubs (IHCC) for this week's theme, Wet Your Whistle!

  1. Sounds like a very healthful drink. Did you like the taste of it? Probably with all that lovely fruit it was delicious.

    1. Agree! But my toddler doesn't want to drink it because it's green. Haha.

  3. Looks like we were in a similar mindset this week Joyce! I often alternate with using frozen spinach (or kale) in my green juice/smoothies instead of fresh if I don't have any on hand and it works really well. You can definitely sneak them in flavor-wise--especially the spinach and if you throw in plenty of frozen blueberries, you can also hide that telltale color from your toddler. ;-)

  10. I love a morning juice such as this. The spinach lends a beautiful green color, but you really don't taste it. A great way to start the day!
