Hulk Juice: Green for 2019
In order to expand a baby’s palate to anything beyond Cerelac, you’ve got to resort to deception. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nope, It’s mashed carrots. “Hulk Juice” was one of my first introductions to deception.
You see, the quickest, easiest and most foolproof way to get anything healthy inside me is by liquifying it beyond recognition. You could blend up an entire beetroot, stems and all, just call it a sweet-unicorn-princess smoothie, and I’ll drink up. That’s how my mom got me to drink a tall glass of celery and spinach; she simply handed me a glass of “Hulk Juice”.
In her defense, that’s what the internets calling it.
The name can be attributed to its bright green color. Can’t say for sure but it’s my best guess. I’m not saying it tasted horrible, but it definitely takes some getting used to. Next time I’ll add some apples to the mix but the original recipe goes a little something like this:
3 ribs of celery
half a lemon
a handful of kale
a handful spinach
½ inch ginger
Juice em’ and drink up
What you end up with is a refreshing little cocktail of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that’ll help with that seasonal flu you’ve been soldiering through. This will also prove to be your liver’s best friend come Sunday morning, since it has amazing detox properties.
The biggest plus of juicing is how quick and painless it is. If you’re looking for a juicer, I’ve been eyeing this one for a while now.
Also, how can you not feel totally badass while drinking Hulk Juice? It’s only a matter of time before this starts trending on your Instafeed, so stay ahead of the curve and try it out earlier than most.
