Like so many of you across the US, here at the Reboot offices in New York it has been a long, cold winter and we started to grow a little stir crazy by the end! To remind us all that summer would eventually arrive I decided to experiment with a juice recipe based on a classic English summer drink, the Pimm’s fruit cup.
Typical Pimms recipes often include cucumber, lemon and mint, but we broke with tradition by using pears instead of apples. The gamble paid off, their sweet flavor was a great addition to this delicious and refreshing juice. Did you know that pears were hailed as a “gift of the gods” by the Greek poet Homer? They have been praised since ancient times, and are an excellent source of potassium, vitamin C and vitamin K.
- 2 cucumbers
- 3 pears
- 8 leaves romaine lettuce (cos)
- 1 lemon
- 1 large handful of mint
- Wash all ingredients well.
- Peel the lemon for a less bitter flavor.
- Add all ingredients through juicer.
- Serve and enjoy! (Best served on ice, and garnished with mint)
