It’s light, it’s refreshing and it’s just the right amount of spicy. And this whole-food juice is an absolute gem.
Yes, it has a silly name.
But that’s because its creator is silly too 🙂
This green juice from the Blender Babe is kickin'
I hope to do this a lot more with the Vitamix Recipes featured here.
And this recipe is a great start.
Tarashaun Hausner, creator of Blender Babes, was in town for a convention. She was working at a booth doing what she does best — comparing blenders. (Here’s her Vitamix vs Blendtec mega post.)
Long story short, we hosted the Blender Babe while she was in town and took the opportunity to shoot a few vids.
This one, “Answering: What do you think of juicing?” was a lot of fun to make and answers the question I get a lot.
Anyway, at the end of the vid, she showed me one of the whole food juices from her free juice detox. It’s called I am spicy hot (I refuse to spell it how she does on her website), and is really, really good.
