You’ve prepared your green elixir of health, and it’s sitting in a stainless steel bowl. Awesome, Step 1, done! Now it’s time to separate the pulp from the juice. You do this by pouring the juice through a large mesh strainer into another trusty stainless steel bowl (we told you stainless steel bowls will become your healthy kitchen BFFs). While you’re straining your fresh juice, you’ll see a back up of juice in the strainer, simply swish the juice circularly inside the strainer and it will strain through. Step 2, check!
Wait — not quite yet! You don’t want to waste even a drop of your delicious juice and there’s definitely more hiding in that pulp! Using a spatula, push down on the remaining pulp sitting in the strainer until all the juice has been delivered into the bowl – now you’ve saved all the juice
Alternately, instead of using a spatula to make sure you get all your juice out of the pulp, you can go hippie style. In place of the spatula, use the backside of your hand (make a fist, now loosen your hand, and push on pulp with hands from fingers to first knuckles).
NOW go enjoy your green elixir of health – you sooo deserve it!
*** Have you ever wondered the health differences between straining the pulp (juicing) vs. drinking the pulp (blending)?
