Pear + Parsley Lemonade

I’ve almost always got extra fruit laying around just about to pass their peak ripeness and start their decent to fruit + veg heaven, may they rest in peace. So the best solution I can come up with, JUICE! Plus I’m really weird with textures of certain fruits; love pears but can’t eat them if they’re not crunchy like an apple, love mango but can’t stand the sliminess, so this is another form of eating (or drinking if you wanna get technical) fruits you love! The sweetness of the pear combined with the tangy, sour lemon + the spicy ginger is a combo that really can’t be beat. It’s a must try!

Ingredients: 

  • 2 pears
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 inch ginger chunk
  • big handful of parsley

Equipment:

  • Juicer
  • Cutting board
  • Knife

Clean your fruits thoroughly. If not using organic ingredients you can fill your sink with water plus one tablespoon of vinegar and soak for ten minutes to remove the wax and pesticide residue, rinse well. Cut your pears small enough to fit into your juicer, leaving skins on. Remove the skin from the ginger and the lemon from its rind, cut if needed to fit into your juicer. I throw the parsley, stems and all in but remove stems if you desire. Juice all the ingredients, parsley and ginger first so the rest of the ingredients can push out the juice since parsley and ginger lack natural liquids. Fresh juice starts to lose nutrients as soon as 15 minutes after it’s been collected, so enjoy immediately!
