Green Abundance Drink
by Patricia Telesco
from A Witch’s Beverages & Brews
- 1 cup diced broccoli
- 4 Brussels sprouts
- 1 sprig parsley
- 1 cup tomato juice (or 2 whole tomatoes)
- 2 stalks celery
- 3 scallions
- 1 cup asparagus
- 1 cup alfalfa sprouts
- salt and pepper to taste
First, make sure to clean your ingredients under warm water. If possible, buy organically grown fruits and vegetables to eliminate the ingestion of pesticides. Remove all leaves, seeds, rinds, and bruised parts before putting the components in your blender/juicer. With the exception of potatoes, fruits and vegetables are predominantly juiced raw to obtain the highest content of nutrients. The all the remains is pulping the ingredients thoroughly with your equipment. If you don’t want pulpy lumpy juice, run the mixture through a sieve when done. To recycle the left over pulp, put it in an equal portion of hot water and bring to a low rolling boil for an hour and strain again. This juice will not be as high in vitamins as the first extraction, but it will use your components economically. Be sure to refrigerate any unused portions. The remaining pith can be composted.
An alternative means of recycling pulp is to make fruit and vegetable wines out of it. In this instance you will be substituting an equal amount of pulp in place of whatever fruit or vegetable the recipe calls for.
Consider making this recipe during a waxing moon and stirring it clockwise so that abundance grows.
Asparagus was thought to be one of Julius Caesar’s favorite foods, contributing to his strength, and celery was used in Rome to prevent hangovers. In this case, the color of the beverage is a rich green to help encourage growth or improved finances. Visualize your need while you drink!
