The prompt over at Sticky Fingers this week is: breakfast!
At the moment, JUICE is breakfast.
Today it was me experimenting:
- 4 oranges,
- a quarter of a pineapple,
- a decent chunk of ginger, and
- half a grapefruit.
All juiced in my KT 100 juicer (my new toy) - love it!
Yesterday it was OJ with a kick (page 55 from Jason Vale's The Funky Fresh Juice Book).

Jason says of oranges:
"You must peel before juicing, as the oils in the skin of oranges are indigestible to humans. When you do, leave as much of the white pith as possible - most of the nutrients are found there and it makes the juice taste creamy (he's right!) You really have never tasted fresh orange juice until you have juiced one with the pith on! (right again!).
I am sure some of you have juicers and you probably use them for hard fruit and veg like carrot and apple. Take Jason's word for it on the oranges - I have had them two days in a row now - delicious!
Only trouble is I think I can do better as the oranges were from Tesco and yes the creaminess is there, but the oranges themselves are lacking flavour, so next oranges I buy will be from a market!
By the way my chopping board picture above is to show that I did leave a decent amount of pith on. I seem to achieve this when I peel them with a knife (too much comes off when I peel by hand) but maybe it is just me.
