I don't wanna appear as a whining baby here,
But the weather is seriously getting off the charts,
104 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday!? What?
The number can only gets higher moving towards the inland area,
The heat is definitely penetrating my skin and frying up my brain (Pzzz"")
So why don't we save up the steak and hot pot recipe till the weather turns more tolerable,
Instead, let's talk about juice or granita (even better!).
Ingredients (for 2 to 3 people)?
1 pink lady apple (about 1 1/3 cups)
1 medium sized carrot (about 1 cup)
1 cup of ice cubes
1 cup of milk
1 1/2 tablespoons of amber honey
You don't really need to peel the carrot but I did, feel cleaner that way,
So chop the carrot and apple into smaller cubes,
Toss them into the blender along with ice cubes, milk, and honey,
Blend till fully incorporated.
The original recipe yields a pretty dense juice without filtering,
I personally like it that way,
If you want a more "regular" juice, here's what you need to do:
Use 2 cups of milk instead of one,
You might need to add one more tablespoon of honey to bump up the sweetness of the juice,
After blending, take a drainer and drain out all the larger bits,
Then you'll end up with nice and smooth carrot/apple juice, with a hint of honey!
What about granita?
Using the original recipe, follow the steps here to make the granita,
I bet it's a good way to get your kids eating more veggies!
