Good Morning Juice



My heavy morning breakfast consists of one of the following fruit shakes.

1. Watermelon, slice of pineapple, 2 bananas,  calamansi juice
2. Watermelon,  2 bananas,  calamansi juice, guayabano
3. Melon, 2  bananas  calamansi juice, papaya
4. 2  bananas,  melon, dalandan

Every morning, the fruits are all freshly chopped in bite size pieces , ( except  for the calamansi juice) and put in a blender. They are also at room temperature and it would take me all of  twenty seconds to gulp the fruit shake down.  I find that I never get hungry till about midday .

I never eat anything with my fruit shake, I also prefer local fruits, I think they have less preservatives than the imported ones. I want to start my day as natural and healthy as can be ........ because by dinner time, I have already fallen into temptation.

There is always a new day to try again.

Try using saba banana instead of lakatan. It has more nutritional value from what I have read. It's so yummy and makes the shake richer and thicker, too!

Thanks for info. I know that uncooked saba bananas are also good for those who are suffering from constipation.

Hi Ms.Becky, my Mom and I had been taking a vegetable/fruit juice daily too. But ours is a bit different, its a mix of 5 green vegetables and fruit. Chinese Cucumber, Ampalaya, Green Bell Pepper, Celery stalks and Green Apple. I agree with what you said, I also never get hungry till midday :) But I like your combination better and I believe it will taste better too ;)

Hi Precious, do you juice the veggies and fruit? Or do you blend them. I usually have the veggie cocktail for my afternoon snack, In the morning , I take the blended fruits , I feel I need the fiber. I will definitely try your concoction. Thank you.

Precious said...

We juice them, but I must warn you to find the best Ampalaya available, if its too bitter it defeats the sweetness of the green apple :)

Becky said...

Ok got that. Will try it. Thank you

Hi ms. becky! May i know what veggie cocktail you recommend?

Becky said...

Hi anonymous, I started vegetable juicing with cucumbers and celery. I wash the cucumbers very very well before peeling them. I don't understand why some of them are so shiny. After a while , I start adding leafy greens like romaine lettuce or cabbage, depending on what I find that's organic. I don't touch carrots causevthe juice is full of sugar. With my fruits, I also don't juice them because the juice is all sugar. I really just blend the bananas, watermelon etc together to get all the fiber. It will be good to take your veggie cocktail in the morning too. Thank you.

oh, i've been juicing apple,carrots and orange for my kids in the mornings. i will try the green concoction although i have been taking wheatgrass powder every other day. What are your thoughts on wheatgrass and barley?

Becky said...

Hi anonymous, I don't know much about wheatgrass and barley although I read up on them. I haven't tried them but I see the wheatgrass commercials on TV.
Thanks.
