BLACK GRAPE JUICE

this is seriously the easiest juice you can make. one ingredient. that's it: only black grapes. sometimes i think of putting something else with the grapes, but then i just can't. it's so good, i don't want to devalue it! :) silly me.

this black grape juice tastes like grape starbursts. seriously. when i first took a sip, nostalgia flooded into my brain. it only took me seconds to think of what it reminded me of. it is so good! and look at that pretty magenta color! lovely.

also, talk about packed with antioxidants! with juice, you'd be getting your fill of antioxidants without getting too full. :)


Black Grape Juice
1 bunch of black seedless grapes

juice ingredients. pour over ice, whisk, and serve.

try it!

exodus 35 creativity party #26

thanks to everyone who linked up last week! i hope y'all had a great easter, and utilized all of the easter craft ideas all over the blogosphere! :)

here are my favorite projects from last week:
1. you must know by now that i can't resist anything map related. :) check out this map bunting from teresa d. boyd.
2. herbs in mason jars? who wouldn't like that?! lynette shows us how she did it at casa de luna.
3. did you know that you can paint couches? see how over at the sasse life.
4. i love natural methods of dying things. it's better for you and (in my opinion) the colors are prettier. more natural. go check out amy's egg dye methods from love bug.

MINTY PINEAPPLE JUICE

i made this juice a few times during my juice fast, but i feel like i'm making it more now! it's yummy and super good for you.

since it has mint in it, you get leafy greens in your juice that don't taste like grass. ;) people don't usually think of mint as a leafy green vegetable, but it totally is. and a tasty one, at that!

this is definitely my new favorite juice. the mint and the pineapple pair together so well. and this juice is totally customizable. the other day, i added strawberries for an extra kick. so good!


Minty Pineapple Juice
1/4 pineapple
2 fuji or gala apples
1 bunch mint

1. juice the mint first, running it through the juicer a good 3-5 times. you won't get much juice from the mint, but it will be enough, and PACKED with nutrients.
2. juice the apple and the pineapple.
3. pour over ice, whisk, and serve.

YUM! hope you enjoy!
