bell pepper juice

 

 Audrey Hepburn said ““If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.” I must say this is something I am living by these days. I don’t break all the rules, But I don’t live by all of them either. A little dent in a rule works like magic for my sense of adventure every now and then.

 Joining the 38 power foods blog group has rekindled my sense of food adventure. I look at our weekly ingredients with an impish smile and think how to bend a few rules and do something different.

It is not hard really. Any wonderful dish is a mix of instincts, timing, proportions and a sense of adventure. In my opinion it is the sense of adventure that helps me transcend barriers and move away from  norms and classics. And the reward is always the thrill of arriving at something unique and exciting, like this bell pepper juice.

This week we had the wonderful bell peppers. Yes the very beautiful bell peppers. My favorite website to read health benefits of foods is the WHF and they have a lot to say about the health benefits of Bell peppers. One small amazing Red orange or yellow pepper gives you up to three times the daily requirement of Vitamin C and also provides Vit B6 for your immune system.

 

 

38 Power Foods blog group  focuses on one ingredient each week taking inspiration from the book ; Power Foods: 150 Delicious Recipes with the 38 Healthiest Ingredients from the editors of the whole living magazine. Each week we all  come up with recipes, stories, articles to encourage eating nourishing food.

Who is we all ? The following wonderful people who make nourishing food and talk about it on their blogs. Do check what they have come up with this week. Also, If you are a blogger and  love the idea of being part of the 38 power foods, we would love to have you join us.   Contact: Mireya(at)myhealthyeatinghabits.com for details.

Bell Pepper Juice

The main flavor of this drink is the bell pepper, and it is quite pleasant with the pineapple added in.

Its a lil sweet and tart with a nice kick in the end. I am developing a recipe to use this in a cocktail as well

  • 1/2 C Bell peppers diced
  • 1/4 C pineapple diced
  • 1/2 C ice cubes
  • dash of lemon

Instructions

  1. Blend them all together. Serve chilled. There is usually no need to add in sugar, but you may do so if you really want it sweet.
  2. Drink up!
