A Chef’s Juice: Mighty Green Grape

By: Vincent Vanhecke

When it comes to juicing, you really are your own best chef.

As you gain more experience in the kitchen, you’ll come to the realization that a “recipe” is a guideline.  What does that mean? Well, recipes are great and useful to follow when you start but don’t feel like you always need to stick to the same exact one over and over again. And even when you stick to the recipe, don’t always expect to get the same flavor!

When you are using fresh vegetables and fruits the taste can change depending on whether or not the produce is in season, whether it’s organic or not, how ripe it is, and much more.

If you’re looking to start experimenting beyond your typical everyday recipe, this is an excellent juice because you’re adding in new and unique ingredients, like  asparagus and zucchini, yet still achieving an excellent taste!
