What's That coming Over The Hill.....

Is it a monster, is it a monsteeeeeer!!

No, don't worry, it's only me! Well, actually it's this:

Of the many things I said I was going to do/try, rice milk has been one that I've actually done! I've been having it in my porridge for the last couple of weeks - hot and cold porridge, then I decided to try the almond & hazelnut version of Rice dream a couple of weeks ago - Oh. My. God. This stuff is A-mazing! At first I thought it reminded me a little, just a little, of Baileys - yum! So I started adding that to my porridge too and it's even better! I also noticed there was a recipe for a Green Monster on the side, but thought nothing of it. Then JAG got some and noticed the recipe and said she was going to give it a go - I said I would too but typical me forgot all about it until she posted on her blog so I figured I'd better do it! It was..... um.... alright actually! I used 250ml almond and hazelnut rice milk and 100g fresh spinach. It tasted a little bit garden-y but had a lovely sweetness from the milk. I'll porbably have it again when I have spinach to use up but not sure it's a drink I'll look forward to....

I also thought I should try it because after reading the Fitnessista Blog and seeing all her scrummy/interesting looking 'sludges' I really wanted to get myself a good juicer and start experimenting a bit more. I've had a juicer before, it was cheap and total shit. You were lucky to be able to fill a shot glass with juice after tearing through a whole bag of apples! So, after a lot of research and reading tons of reviews, I ordered one of these bad boys!


It's a Samson 6 in 1 masticating juicer - my old one was centrifugal which is apparently nowhere near as efficient and people also talk about nutrient loss being far greater with a centrifugal juicer blah blah.
It can also be used for making nut butters, pasta, mincing meat and apparently if you push frozen fruit through the juicer it makes a ver good 'ice cream'. It should arrive otday or tomorrow - can't wait!


  1. Ooooh, your green monster looks so much greener than mine - I think maybe I didn't use enough spinach.

    Sooooooo jealous of that juicer, can you bring it to Dumfries? LOL!

    Lol, if I could I would!

    I did have quite a lot of spinach to use up - I think I actually used 100g spinach to 200ml Rice Dream - I poured 250ml but drank some!

  3. OK I WANT that juicer, argh!!! I think I will have to wait a while to save up for a really good one. I left a big bag of spinach in the fridge when I went on holiday (it was growing like crazy in the garden so if it hasn't rotted in the fridge by the time I get back it would have probably been eaten in the garden by my sluggy pals anyway...)
