MORNING BLAST = our secret to health and vitality

MORNING BLAST is the juice that I make every morning and that my wife and I slam back within minutes after it pours out of the juicer (best consumed at room temperature). This has been a staple of our existence for the last six months, and in that time we've both been totally free of any kind of cold or flu bug.

Ingredients (makes 24-32 ounces [700 -1,000 milliliters] of juice) = 

  • 3 oranges 
  • 1 lemon 
  • 1 kiwi 
  • 3-5 carrots (depending on size) 
  • handful of blueberries 
  • a bunch of ginger**

**Ginger is the "blast" in "Morning Blast"!

Here's a pictorial overview of the process of making MORNING BLAST

Our juicer, set up and ready for action

The unmixed juice, as it is straight from the juicer
I use an empty measuring cup of equal size to do the mixing, chemist-style (dumping it violently back and forth between the cups, getting it frothy and totally aerated).
The finished product, ready for slamming back (best if slammed back quickly, while it's freshest). The frothy head on top is from the ginger (the "blast" in Morning Blast).
Down the hatch!
