I got my inspiration for this smoothie from some aloe vera recipes. I kind of mixed and matched until I came up with my own recipe. I juiced my ingredients, and then I blended them. The experience of working with aloe vera was unique to be sure, slimy. The smoothie was quite good.
So this juice tasted and looked a little like Good & Plenty candy product of Hershey, PA: "tasted like," because of the licorice flavor of the fennel, and "looked like" because of the bright happy color. Very interesting combination for a chewable juice with fibrous pulp galore.
Nice and spicy. Anthony said it was hotter than ginger ale! This was our drink before dinner. I saved some of the pulp to make a fruit bread or fruit muffins with it. I got that idea off of Pinterest today from a pinner that pinned a carrot juice pulp cake recipe from cookingforengineers.com.
This evening Anthony made us mango orange smoothies. First, he cut up the fruit. Second, he ran the fruit with the peels on through the juicer. He poured a glass for me at this point. Third, he added vanilla ice cream and then milk to his. The whole time Shastya was sitting in her little chair enjoying the cooking show, smiling, and making cute noises. When Anthony was all done he let Shastya sample some of the smoothie without ice cream. She really liked it. She also enjoyed listening to the Clemson game on the radio while Anthony made the smoothies! She could tell the sports caster was very excited about Clemson football at the Orange Bowl. Shastya was wearing her tiger fleece hoodie and cheering on Clemson solid orange.
