Insane Power Drink: BE IT RESOLVED

edited January 2011
Lately Gary and I have been doing Insane Power Drinks almost every day. Anyone want to join in, or share their own recipe?

Half a beet
whole carrot
half an apple
clove of garlic
two leaves of kale or chard
juice of half a lime
yogurt or soy yogurt or something with live cultures
grated ginger
juice
ice cubes
ground flax seed

put all in food processor, blend for a few minutes.

Makes a weird sour/garlicky/sweet weirdly chewy bright purple drink

HEALTH BLAST

Comments

  • You should try adding frozen berries instead of ice. Makes it sweeter/less watery. Although with a crazy packed drink like this, water might be a good thing.
  • Is this energy drinks?

    Good Job To All!!!

    I'm gonna make one when I get back from fetching my dog and buying a toilet plunger at the hardware store
  • These drinks sound good. I just drink water and coffee. I should get a food processor.
  • favorite power drink moment at about 1:56
  • Alex: food processor is such a great invention. The only expensive bourgie kitchen appliance I own! Not counting fancy knives.

    They are expensive but check out your goodwills and your garage sales and your ebays, because they are so worth it. Not just for amazing health-blast smoothies but also PESTO and also CREAMY SOUPS!!!! And also HOMEMADE HUMMUS. And other stuff (they can even knead bread for you)

    MARGARITAS. Sure you can use a blender for that but whatever
  • What is the difference between a food processor and a blender? I always thought they were the same thing!

    thanks :D
  • in my experience you get a MUCH smoother blend with a food processor than with a blender. Also a deeper mix. But I don't know if this is true....what IS the difference, technically? Aside from "several hundred dollars"??? Food processor has all the different attachments, like a knife just for making thin slices; a knife for zesting; a bread dough hook...and also all the different shapes of holes you can open up to stick stuff in while it's working. It's generally a more elaborate machine. But really when you get down to it what's the difference?

    I've never been able to make hummus in a blender, because it remains chunky. I feel like a blender is going to leave you some big chunks of things, whereas a FP can get it 100% smooth??? I wish a Hot Knife would post and explain.
