Pep{per} In Your Step #juice #recipe

This morning I created a super yummy juice recipe, that I just had to blog the recipe right away so you could enjoy it too!


2 apples (cored)
1/2 orange (peeled)
5 large strawberries (rinsed and tops removed {optional})
1/2 orange pepper (seeds removed)

Yes, you read that right. Today, I added something new and exciting to my juice. My husband is big on wraps and salads, so we always have peppers and onions in the house. I thought well, I'm not getting enough vegetables in my morning juice, so I added half of a sweet orange pepper.

There's no specific method to this juice, just toss it all in and push it through. This juice recipe makes approximately 16oz. and is the perfect blend of sweet, spicy and tangy.

I was really surprised at just how much I liked this juice. I am not a huge fan of peppers on their own, but know that there are some pretty awesome health benefits and nutrients in them (vitamin A and C, potassium) that are great for this stage of pregnancy. Right now, I'm having alot of restlesss leg syndrome, particularly late in the evening when the rest of my body is settling down. Potassium can certainly help with that, along with cramps from running.

SO YUMMY! I really hope this is one recipe that you try, and if you do...report back!! I love it and it certainly will become a staple in our house!
