Frozen Juice aka I Love Aldi
Sunday, May 10, 2015
OK, 2nd round for making the juice. Thanks to Aldi who makes it possible with 99 cents Pineapples and celery. $2 Kale, 1.79 Spinach. Aldi allows me to continue with my juicing journey without going broke.
Ingredients list: 14 lbs Carrots, 8 Pineapples, 6 Beets, 1 lb Kale, 1/2 lb Spinach, 1 Celery, 4 young Coconuts, 2 Red Cabbage, 1 Red Onion, Limes and lemons.
Length of time: Shopping 3 stores: 3 hrs; Cleaning 1 hr; Set up, peel and cut: 1.5 hrs; Juicing 1.5 hrs; Bottling and cleaning up 1.5 hrs. The improvement I can make is the cleaning up time. I made a mess and had to spend more time cleaning. I can do better next time.
This time the yield increases to 22 bottles. This is great news as it means I can juice every 3 weeks instead of 2. I spent more time this round, but I get more juice and I can hold off longer until the next batch.
