Strawberry Juice

As you might know, I got some really great strawberries at the Farmers Market on Saturday.

Here they are right before I started digging in:

the best strawberries!

So after my strawberry overload breakfast (see below) I decided to treat myself to a refreshing beverage.  After working around the house/yard over the weekend, it was well deserved.

I started juicing them with my juicer!

I juiced two of the containers! It produces the best puree!

strawberry pulp

I think I will use it for pancakes or perhaps in my yogurt….or ice cream!

I muddled some basil leaves with a little bit of sugar. I added some fresh strawberry juice and some sparkling water.

Put in a straw & top with a little strawberry and you have yourself a refreshing drink!

my fabulous mocktail

The basil was great! If you aren’t as daring…try some mint! MMMMMMM

    I’ve been putting strawberry juice in frosting lately, but I don’t have a juicer. It’s a food processor & mesh strainer for me!

    i used a strainer too…gotta squeeze the juice out ALL of it. waste not, want not! now that you mention it…i should put this in my frosting! ahh the possibilities!

    Trader Joe’s is having a contest and since you *love* them as much as I do, I wanted to email you the information. Your contact page is blank, though. Would you mind sending me your email so I can pass it along?

    Oh I love my juicer. I always feel like i am really treating myself with a fresh
    fruit smoothie. This looks lovely!

  • Wheeler

    Wow those strawberries look so fresh and healthy! The juice looks really tasty … much better than drinking soda, that’s for sure! I bet a few slices of cucumber in there would be tasty too. And mint! Yum 🙂

  • Tracy

    wheeler- you know it! im gonna use some mint next time- or mix cucumber juice with it! soo refreshing!

    suzy- juicing is addictive! i just have to be better about using my pulp!
