Sweet Corn Chowder Green Juice

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.

Ingredients:

6 ears fresh corn
1/2 – 1 head romaine
1 cucumber

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…).

Juice Party in Session

On a non-juice note, I am two weeks in to the Chocolate Covered Katie Challenge and here are the favorites of the week:

32C Chocolate Cups


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 ;) ).

  1. Hey Rande,
    Not sure this will help so much, but when I’m craving something I either find something with a similar texture or when that’s not possible (fish!) I read something which makes me not want to eat it – either Natalia’s LFE book or something along the lines of how depleted the ocean is. Psychology like that works well for me and it makes me feel not eating it is a positive move, rather than I’m missing out :)

    • You know what might be helpful is if you started blogging again ;D Seriously, your recipes have been some of my absolute favorites. Thanks for the tip, I really should pick up Natalia’s LFE again, I gain something new from it every time!

  2. I can’t offer much about how to beat the cravings. I was never a big fan of fish but cheese was super hard for me to forget. I just kept reminding myself about the ethical issues around cheese production and tried to find fatty things to eat to help with those cravings. Maybe you can work on some faux fish recipes, using seaweed to flavor them? Honestly, time was what helped the most for me. I just kind of forgot that I liked the flavor of cheese.

    SO here is a recipe for raw mock smoked salmon.

    1/2 cup soaked raw almonds
    1/2 cup carrot pulp
    1/4 cup scallions
    2 tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
    1 tsp dulse
    1 tsp kelp
    1 tbsp. nori flakes (nori sheets cut into pieces)
    1 tsp nutritional yeast
    1 pinch cayenne pepper
    1/4 cup fresh carrot juice or water to blend
    1 tsp fresh parsley
    sea salt to taste

    Blend nuts, carrot pulp and juice(or water) in food processor until smooth. Place mixture in bowl and add remaining ingredients. Mix and serve.

    I would think you could replace the almonds with some coconut pulp but haven’t tried it. This does taste pretty fishy. Very good. You can make put this on cucumbers or whatever to eat :)
