FROM FAVORITE TO FAIL

I bought some celery to try with my smoothies. I thought it would be a good idea to blend in some more vegetables. Well, as I'm sure you can tell by the title of this post, it didn't exactly turn out well. I mean I was able to drink it, but the aftertaste was awful and I definitely wouldn't make it again without at least some adjustment to the recipe. Here's what I included:

- Pear Juice
- Fresh Celery + Celery Leaves
- Pineapple
- Spinach
- Kale

Does this recipe look familiar? Well, I based it off of one of my favorite smoothies I've made so far: Hawaiian Pear + Pineapple. For that smoothie, I used Whole Foods' Hawaiian Pear juice and for this one I attempted to make my own sort of concoction, which, sadly, didn't really work out. As the title says, I went from favorite to fail. :(

I have to say, I'm totally surprised by how potent celery is when you add it to a smoothie! It really takes over the taste, which is surprising since it's mostly just water. Watermelon is the same way.

HAWAIIAN PEAR + PINEAPPLE GOODNESS!

This smoothie is actually one of my favorites! My husband, on the other hand, thinks it looks gross and tastes terrible. He prefers the sour smoothies (more recipes to come on that) and usually sticks to fruit only. This one is heavier on the veggies as I'm using one of Whole Food's cold-pressed raw juices, which is already a mix of fruits and veggies, as the base:

Whole Foods Hawaiian Pear Pressed Juice

- Hawaiian Pear Juice:
kale, spinach, celery, pear, pineapple
- Pineapple
- Kale
- Flaxseed

I guess it seems weird to add more pineapple and more kale to a juice that already has both, but it's a delicious combo!

TROPICAL TASTINESS

One of my favorite juices is Hawaii's famous POG or Passion Orange Guava. Specifically, I love guava, so, of course, I had to get some guava juice for smoothies. I combined it with a few delicious ingredients and the result was awesome:

- Guava Juice
- Strawberries
- Pineapple
- Kale
- Chia Seeds

Verdict: delicious!
