Hi Everyone, welcome to Day 10 of the 14-Day super scrumptious, totally tasty, Juice Cleanse Challenge! Can you believe it? Only four more days left!
Drumroll please! The juice of the day is Strawberry-Basil Refresher. Lately I've been on a bit of a strawberry kick, but can you blame me? There are gorgeous, beautifully ripe strawberries at every turn! I feel so fortunate to be living in a climate where I can enjoy the undeniable deliciousness of fresh, local fruit.
I grew up in a place where the summer harvest season was short and not always particularly fruitful (no pun intended). As a result, I have gained a deep appreciation for actually being able to see things growing in their natural habitat, and buying "in season" has taken on a completely new significance for me.
This juice is light and refreshing with a surprising yet subtle hint of basil.
- 2 pints of strawberries
- 1 large cucumber, with peel
- 2-3 sprigs of basil
In addition to being delicious, strawberries are quite high in iron and protein. How could they get any more perfect?
Peace & Love,
