Easy Freshly Squeezed Pomelo Juice

Easy Freshly Squeezed Pomelo Juice

IMG_2685

I recently began consuming a new fruit in my diet — the honey pomelo. I eat several per week at times but am temporarily unable to chew due to an oral surgery that’s taking a while to heal. I had one soldier beginning to rot, and wanted to salvage as much as I could of my treasure. I cut away the rotten portion and tried my novice hand at this recipe .

I hope you enjoy!

You’ll need:

1 large pomelo, with flesh removed (seeds remaining is ok)
1 cup of cold water or more to taste
Up to 1 cup of simple syrup (I homemade a stevia version)

Serves: 4

-place the fruit into a blender with decent speeds
-pulse until well broken down
-blend using liquify or juice if your appliance has it until you see a clearer substance (DO NOT SMOOTHIE as you’ll end up cold pressing the whole thing through strainers by hand)
-pack the pulp as tightly as you can with the carafe REMOVED from the base of the blender for safety
-carefully strain through a fine mesh strainer as you scrape down the flesh for maximum juice
-pour into mason jars/s and add the water and syrup in quarter batches as you taste for desired sweetness
-serve cold over ice or chilled

That’s it! You did it!

Time for some vegan cookies!

I’m a 20 + years experienced plant-based eater (with some uunfortunate breaks that were hard lessons to learn) who lost over 150 pounds (actually 170 but maintaining a healthier weight loss of 150 pounds down from my highest weight via a mostly high carb low fat plant based vegan diet, regular movement of my body to mitigate the damage, and a commitment to always love myself enough to try and put kind foods into my mouth. I love trying to create recipes that are interesting, yet healthy and kind. I also love taking photographs and sharing food photos... a lot! I’m happy to chat if you’re struggling. I’ve been there. I nearly died from eating disorders and then obesity related illnesses brought on by my unhealthy lifestyle. I love life, and have a beautiful family here in Canada. Come on in, and also be sure to check out my Instagram under FraserValleyVegan for many times daily happenings in the kitchen. Coming soon will be my book about my eating disorder origins, and the beginnings of my relationship with myself and food in a loving and respectful way.
