Very Green Juice

I think we have been blogging for about six months now and we still haven’t been able to come up with a decent presentation of ourselves. We have been talking about it though. How we should explain a little bit more about our food philosophy, what kind of things we always keep in our kitchen pantry, and something about our small family. We will do it really soon, maybe even during this weekend. But for now, let’s make some Very Green Juice.

This juice will probably be my favorite drink this summer. It tastes great, is very refreshing and it is only made on green fruits and vegetables!
Since I am quite the ginger-fan I tend to use quite a large piece, if you’re not used to it I recommend to start with a small piece, taste it, and maybe add some more. You make this juice easiest in a juice machine, but you could also throw the ingredients in a blender (make sure to peel the kiwi first).

Kiwi Juice
Around 4 glasses

8 kiwi fruits
3 green apples (we used granny smith)
1/2 cucumber
2 inches / 5 cm of fresh ginger
1 handful fresh mint leaves
4 ice cubes, for serving

Mix all the ingredients in a juice machine. Serve immediately with lots of ice.

I’m not sure what this picture of Elsa is doing in this post. But it was too cute to leave out …

    Great taste! I had it without the ice as I'm still struggling out of the norweigian winter but will definitely use it in the summer. Yum!

    That juice seems so fresh for a hot summer day. I can't wait to try it when the warmer season kicks in. Still can't get over the fact that Elsa is sooooooooooo darn pretty! Every time I see a picture of her I swear it makes my day :D Saludos desde Venezuela
  • Nu har jag testat er juice! Funkar även i en mixer, men blir lite tjockare. Mixade med några isbitar så blev det bättre. Bra som förkylningsmedicin med ingefäran och kiwin! Kram syster
  • Elsa is adorable, and that very green juice could very well be a very big hit around my house this coming summer. You have a great blog, and the name always reminds me of the film Kitchen Stories.
  • Ohh, that is a really really great idea for a hot summer day. And would probably work really well with homemade Swedish Cupcakes..
  • Hi Elsa!!! You're adorable!! The green juice looks very fresh - and I'll be looking forward to the introduction post then :)
