Zippy Peppy Juice

 We have been making ourselves this Home Made Energy Drink we call Zippy Peppy Juice most mornings for about a couple of months now.  Zippy Peppy Juice contains: Fresh Beets, Carrots, Celery, Turnips, Rutabaga, Purple Cabbage, Mustard Greens, Collard Greens and Brussels Sprout Greens, Granny Smith Apple and a cup of Fresh Ginger Root.

The Champion Juicer is a simple, yet very powerful machine that can even handle a rutabaga smoothly.
We treat all our kitchen machinery as the power tools they are, and always put on hearing protectors that we keep hanging on the wall in the kitchen, that juicer uses the same motor as a shop grinder, and a blender is as loud as a skill saw.


All those roots and vegetables in the photo above produce enough juice for four cups like the ones pictured below.  It is an easily ingested treasure trove of minerals, enzymes, and natural sugars that really get the bodies energy flowing.


  
With all that ginger this really packs a wallop! 

It is sweet from the carrots, beets and apples and spicy from the fresh ginger root, and over wintered mustard greens.
The trick is that the celery gives a deceptively soothing, coolness, as it goes down. 

The mustard greens kinda sneak up and take your breath away, and the Ginger leaves you in a cold sweat.

Zippy Peppy Juice makes sparks fly!  *

* Disclaimer: Don't drink Zippy Peppy Juice on an empty stomach. We always  make sure to eat our seaweed soup FIRST !
