A light and flavorful juice that packs a punch in nutrients but tastes wonderful! This juice tastes as refreshing as a popsicle on a hot Summer’s day.
You may say wow she’s so creative, how did she think of this combination? I get this often. And the wholehearted truth is that I HAD to. I had 40 PLUS food sensitivities that sent my body into complete disarray for many years! For that reason alone I started to experiment with lots of fruits and vegetables that didn’t cause a mast cell reaction to my body so that I could find suitable options for myself. My pain led me to my purpose of finding and creating nourishing food for myself to heal.
Now, in this case, my pain is your pleasure because this juice is legit, and had I not had food issues I’m not sure I would have even bothered with Jicama, also knowns as the flavorless vegetable on crudites platters that no one ever seems to know what it is, what it’s called or how it’s spelled.
And just in case you’re curious it’s the only starch veggie that is beyond low glycemic and good for diabetics. It has tons of water in it and barely any calories. Jicama has a texture of a non-sweet crunchy apple but has barely any taste eaten raw. BUT juiced raw? OMG game changer! So sweet! And surprisingly when I cooked the Jicama on the saute pan with a little oil, OMG such a sweet warmed veggie. It tastes totally different and delicious that way too! I like cooked Jicama in Chinese style dishes and in juices the most. It’s just so versatile! And who knew right?!
