PEPPERED PEAR ELIXIR


Since I haven’t been drinking this month (I’m doing a Sober September), I’ve been inspired to step up my juicing game! I seem to come up with the most unique flavour combinations when I’m trying to use things up around the kitchen — that’s how my Peppered Pear Elixir was born. We had a couple of peppers, pears and celery stalks that were on their last days, so I decided to throw them into a juice, along with a few other ingredients I had kicking around. The result is a sweet n’ spicy, aromatic juice brimming with a medley of awesome detoxifying ingredients. Enjoy this elixir on a fall morning while Bartlett pears are in season, and kick-start your day!

This recipe is full of ingredients that are really great to juice. Pears are very juicy (even more so than apples), slightly sweet and full of vitamins and minerals. They also add a thicker texture to the juice, which I find a bit more substantial and filling (think of it as halfway between a traditional juice and a smoothie!).

Peppered Pear Elixir // JustineCeilna.comIn juices, peppers pair really well with other vegetables and fruits — they add that sweet but spicy element, and loads of vitamins A and C (just one pepper contains over 100% of your daily intake!). Celery adds a bit more mild spice and lots of nutrition, while limes and ginger help to cleanse and detoxify the body. Apples round out the recipe with a familiar flavour — along with phytonutrients and antioxidants that help prevent disease.

Combine all these goodies and you’ve got a powerful elixir to help strengthen your immune system during cold and flu season!

PEPPERED PEAR ELIXIR


Yield: 24 oz (3 cups)

Peppered Pear Elixir // JustineCeilna.com


Ingredients


• 2 apples (I like one McIntosh and one Granny Smith)
• 2 Bartlett pears
• 1 purple pepper (feel free to substitute with a yellow pepper)
• 1 lime
• 3 celery stalks
• 1/2″ piece of ginger

Instructions


1. Start with chilled produce.

2. Chop all ingredients into 1″ pieces and add them one at a time to your Hurom Slow Juicer (or similar), starting with an ingredient that isn’t as juicy (like ginger), and alternating with an ingredient that makes lots of juice (like pear). This will ensure that the juicy ingredients flush the not-so-juicy ingredients through the juicer and you’ll get more of them in your cup!

3. Once you’ve juiced all of your ingredients, stir the juice and pour over ice.

Peppered Pear Elixir // JustineCeilna.comP.S. – I used the Tree Stump Side Table I made for Kelsey as a prop in this shoot (before I dropped it off for her)! If you’re interested in how I made it, I have an in-depth post. And, my friends Terrence and Elisha made the raw cedar coasters! How cool are they?! They still smell delicious — like having a little piece of the forest in your home!

    I am still clinging to summer’s bounty but I have a feeling I will be eating a lot of beets shortly. 🙂

      I haven’t yet entered my beet eating phase, but I’m sure it will be coming soon! I love beets, and they’re so good in fall juices, too. Thanks for stopping by, Janet! 🙂

    I love your photos, the purple pepper with all that green is awesome!

      Thanks Heather! I loved those purple peppers, I picked them up at a fresh food market in Creston, BC this summer. All the produce there is so beautiful! I’m going to head over to check your blog out now.

    This elixir looks refreshing but heart-warming all at once! I don’t own a juicer right now, but this is the kind of recipe that makes me itch to add one to my kitchen. Well done! (And beautiful photos too!!)

      Thanks for the comment, Marie! I couldn’t live without my juicer — it’s the easiest way to make sure you’re getting all your fruits and veggies in when you’re busy. I love to make a big juice in the morning to sip away on for breakfast. If you decide to purchase one, I have lots of other juice recipes here! Have a great weekend. 🙂

    I would never have thought to put peppers in juice, but your post has convinced me. This sounds like a flavourful and refreshing blend. I always love the combo of celery and sweet fruit — have you tried celery with red grapes and a bit of lime juice? O. M. G.!!!!

    • Reply Justine October 2, 2015 at 1:31 pm

      Hi again Sarah, glad to have you back! Thanks for the comment, and the suggestion — I’ve never actually juiced grapes! I’ll have to try your blend out. Sounds tasty! I wouldn’t have thought to juice peppers either, but sometimes my best concoctions happen when I’m trying to use things up in the kitchen. I just finished a big glass of this juice!

    Good news Justine – it is October and Sober September is OVER! Whew!! Seriously this juice looks amazing!! I absolutely love pears and look forward to trying this recipe!

      LOL, you’re not the first person to say that to me this month Laura! Hahaha. I actually really enjoyed Sober September, but I do love my wine and am happy October is here! 🙂 Thanks for the comment, and if you try the recipe, let me know how you like it!
