This is what I did with a beautiful gift basket of bosc pears I received from a lovely couple of friends. These pears changed my life, and in gratitude I offer this recipe!
There is something truly magical about this nectar...
The fruits are nourishing and full of fiber, the ginger is cleansing and enlivening, the lime refreshing and alkalizing... This combination will give you an instant mood lift as well as a warm calm within. It's the perfect "afternoon snack" or addition to your smoothie routine or cleansing ritual.
I quite literally feel like a goddess when I drink this blend! From the inside out this beverage makes me feel beautiful and calm, and it curbs my hunger for many hours. On top of the health and wellness benefits, it tastes delicious! You will love the cool and creamy texture...
This elixir achieves a harmonious balance of tart-sweet-cool-heat, that will please all the senses while it nourishes your body whole! :)
Mood-Enhancing Apple-Pear Nectar (with Ginger and Lime)
2 large organic Bosc Pears
1 large organic Fuji Apple
1/2 medium Lime, including peel
1 generous inch of fresh Ginger Root
*You will need a juice extractor to make this recipe.
Slice fruit so it will fit easily through juicer shoot. Feed all fruit, ginger and lime through juicer.
Using a mesh strainer over a container, strain juice to remove the bulk of the foam and fiber the pears create. Use a spoon to help stir the juice through the strainer. It is fine and desirable for there to be some pulpiness remaining in your strained nectar. The trick is to strain enough of the pulp so it drinks smoothly and tastes more like juice than a smoothie.
Pour nectar into glasses over ice and enjoy while cool and fresh. It really makes you feel great inside!
A few more fun ideas:
*Don't discard the pulp you strain! Save this wonderful fiber-rich stuff by popping into your next smoothie or soup.
*A great way to save the remaining pulp (should yield about four tablespoons) is to pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze. Voila, immediate access when you are ready to blend up a smoothie.
*Try the pulp blended with fresh pineapple or frozen raspberries to enjoy as a smoothie. Or, gently heat this mixture over the stove with 1/2 to 1 tbsp of sweetener and then use it as a dessert sauce over vegan frozen yogurt or ice cream.
