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.

CHERRY LIME DISASTER

Through my many trials and tirbulations of smoothie making I have been pretty lucky with only a few failures. So far, I have only not finished and poured out two and this is one of them:

- Aloe
- Apple Juice
- Watermelon Juice
- Cherries
- Lime Juice

I started it off with apple and watermelon juice because I had fresh apple-watermelon juice at this tiny little juice stand in Kathmandu, Nepal last year and it was so good! But then, I made the mistake of adding cherries to it. And then, I made the even bigger mistake of adding what turned out to be more than a little lime.

After that the apple-watermelon-cherry (the aloe really doesn't add any taste, so I don't count that) wasn't very good, I was thinking that I'd try lime since cherry-lime is a thing. Well, it didn't go as well as I'd hoped. It was so bad, I have since not made anything else with cherry or lime. Seriously, don't try this one!
