Blueberry Juice

This juice is light and refreshing and another favourite in our home.

Blueberry Juice - makes one serving


1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup diced apple (washed and peeled)*
1/2 cup diced zucchini or cucumber**
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp water

Combine all ingredients in the cup that comes with your immersion blender and puree until smooth. Place in sippy cup with a few ice cubes and enjoy.

* in the fall we go apple picking with the apples I make all sorts of goodies but I also wash, peel and chop up a bunch to freeze. This ends up being less expensive since I am buying them direct from the source and is also very handy for making juices. If you are going to use frozen fruit for your juices always take them out the night before and place them in the fridge to thaw. Our rule of thumb is you make a juice; you take out stuff for the next juice.

** Same goes for zucchini. My parents grow some in their garden and brought us I think about a dozen large ones. We diced them all up and froze them.
