Mango Madness Juice

When I started my Juice Cleanse if you had said to me that I would be drinking Mango Juice I would have said you were crazy. I hated mangoes...juice, to eat, to simply smell. WELL, that all changed one day when I decided to make up a Mango juice for my daughter Kassy to drink and she dared me to drink some of it. Well one could say the rest is History. I LOVE IT! This is not that  juice but one of many I have created since that day in June. This is MY Mango Madness Juice.
1 Cup Fresh Bing Cherries Pitted
1 Mango
4 Clementines
1 Large Navel Orange
1/2 Lime
1/4 Lemon
1 Carrot
1 Huge Cucumber
Juice all in the order listed. This will make up about 40 oz of thick rich juice. You can freeze it to make sorbet, Popsicle, or drink it over ice.

Breakfast Juice to Wake You Up And Start the Day.

Summer time, the grand kids are at your house visiting or maybe it is the children are out of school and home driving you nuts. They pop out of bed and want something really cool and deli-sh to drink for breakfast (or anytime). Grab your juicer, the following fruit, some ice and head to the kitchen.
1 Papaya (Peeled & sliced or cubed)
1 Pineapple (peeled and  speared)
1 Orange (peeled)
1 Lemon (peeled)
Juice the above items in the order listed. Yep I am telling you which way to juice them for a reason. Papaya meat once juiced makes a thick juice that leaves a sludge in your juicer. That is not a bad thing at all. Just follow the papaya with your pineapple, orange and lemon juice to wash all the yummy goodness into your juice. Save all of your juice you can serve it over ice now or put it in the fridge over night for the morning breakfast juice.
Add in juice : Juice 2 cups strawberries, 1 huge TX peach and 1/2 of a huge cucumber in a measuring cup. I like to strain my juices a few times til smooth and for a nice breakfast drink i add 1 oz of this juice to 8 oz of the above Papaya/Pineapple Juice. Serve Cold.
 Need a refreshing drink to cool off after a hot walk?
Add 4 oz of Papaya/Pineapple juice, 2 oz strawberry/peach/cucumber juice and 1/2 cup ice in a blender.
Any of the above juices can be easily made up as Popsicles...ENJOY!
Til Tomorrow
~Stay Juicy
