If you’ve got a juicer, a juice bar, or a raw restaurant nearby, you’ve probably figured out how to get your hands on nutrient-dense liquid nutrition. But did you know that you can also make juice in your blender? With the help of a nut mylk bag (available at health food stores and online) or even cheese cloth if you’re in a pinch, you can use your plain old blender to make delicious juice. To be fair, I tend to make blended juice in a Vitamix and it’s been awhile since I’ve used a less advanced blender to get the job done, but I have done it, and yes, it does work.
This weekend, while visiting my brother Asher in Los Angeles, he took a few breaks from working on exciting projects at his film studio Pollution Studios to drink juice and hang with me. Here is the technique and recipe we used to make juice together!
Juice In A Blender! (Serves 1-2)
1. Chop all veggies, fruit, greens.

4. Remove pulp-filled nut mylk bag or cheese cloth (freeze or immediately use in other recipes, if you’d like!) and pour strained juice into vessels of your choice.
My brother…enjoying fresh juice!
Voila! Enjoy! How do you like to make or get your juice? ;)

The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...
Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).
Adulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
