I absolutely love turning people on to juicing. To me there is nothing better than a the green juice “high” but if it tastes like dirt then I’m not interested. I’ve spent a lot of time figuring out how to make my juice so delicious that it’s actually worth cleaning my juicer every day (not exactly my favorite chore). Recently a few friends came over and I shared three recipes with them: a “Classic” Green Juice (cucumber, lettuce, lemons, and stevia or apple), a “Chocolate Milk” Juice (Carrots and Romaine), and the title of todays post, Sweet Corn Chowder Green Juice. I was surprised to find that it was the hit of the party, I sort of thought mine were the only taste buds that would be up for something so unusual. I ran into this idea last Summer when I was in the middle of a five-day juice fast and found myself at the Farmers Market desperately craving fresh corn. My curiosity about whether it could be juiced or not led me to take home a bag and try it out! The result: one very messy kitchen and one satisfied Rande.
6 ears fresh corn
1/2 – 1 head romaine
Peel corn and slice off the kernels. Run it all through the juicer dropping the corn in by the handful. This particular recipe is one that works MUCH better with a masticating juicer like the Champion instead of the Breville that I use for everything else (embarrassing confession: I own three juicers…).
On a non-juice note, I am two weeks in to the Chocolate Covered Katie Challenge and here are the favorites of the week:
My personal favorite was the version of chocolate cups that I filled with tahini! I also made some with almond butter (a hit!) and hemp butter (not so much…).
Britney was a big fan of the Pumpkin Pie Parfait, we both agreed it had a yummy, honey-like flavor even though there wasn’t any honey involved.
Just over halfway done with my month of veganism and I find myself craving fish. I have yet to come up with a way to satisfy this craving without resorting to something heavily processed (which I’m not interested in doing). If there are any vegans or creative cooks out there with an awesome veggie focused plan for soothing my fish craving, we should be friends (or you can leave a comment ).
