Pinklicious Power Juice

 

We spend most of our time in the kitchen.  Cooking, hanging out, talking, bonding as a family. I am lucky to have grown up in an Italian family of great cooks and even luckier to have married a man who loves cooking.  Food has a way of bringing us together.

Since mornings are crazy busy and it's tough to make sure that everyone starts the day right, two of my favorite kitchen items are our Vitamix blender and our Breville juicer.  The first makes amazing smoothies, like my famous Harry Potter Booger Juice, dips, sauces, and even hot soup.  It's the bomb.  Easy to use and super easy to clean.  The juicer is equally easy - you put the apples in whole - and it makes amazing nutritious juice that everyone loves.  Here's one of our favorites.  I find that there is nothing delicious about red delicious apples, but do not substitute them with other apples, these naturally sweeten the juice.
