apple pear juice
With the fall season quickly coming to an end (poor fall always getting shortened by Christmas season explosion!), I wanted to make sure I shared the delicious juice I've been drinking for the past few months while the ingredients were still in grocery stores.
I received a beautiful juicer as a gift last year but have been slow to really get into the juicing scene. But after trying the Pear Chai juice at the Green Kitchen in the Milwaukee Public Market - and realizing I had all I needed to make my own - I decided it was time to give juicing a go.
This juice captures some of my favorite fall flavors and is sweet with a little bit of a kick. It's also healthy and can be made with local, seasonal ingredients. And it's perfect for when I need a little something to get me from lunch to dinner or need something sweet after dinner but don't have any dessert on hand (a true travesty).
1 square inch ginger
1 tablespoon honey
Chop your fruit and add to the juicer with the ginger. Sprinkle your glass with cinnamon. Pour apple/pear/ginger juice into cup and stir in your honey. Garnish to your heart's content and enjoy! -- Sometimes I like to water this down a bit because it's so sweet, but I've also enjoyed it plenty just as is. Cheers to fall!
