When I was neighbors with Carol Gelles, the award winning cookbook author, she gave me a juicer. She had several of them from all the testing she did for her book, 101 Ways to Juice It. Of course, I was also given a copy of her book, so I’ve decided to add cookbooks to Weekend Shout Out. I am lucky enough to have a copy of all of her books, and even more blessed to have her in my life so you’ll see more about Carol on this blog for sure.

Anyways, I wanted to share my favorite juice recipe, which is from her book. The only downside is having to use a juicer and a blender, which means more cleaning. If you want to cut corners, you can just buy apple juice (natural, no sugar added), but the freshness of an apple just juiced is astounding. Fuss included, this is still a treat for myself, refreshing and lifting, and an awesome way to start the morning. It’s pretty amazing that two ingredients can taste this good.
