goya juice

When I blogged yesterday about goya chanpuru and how much I love the bitter taste of bitter melon (goya), I said stay tuned for a juice recipe that Stephen's boss makes for all the employees almost every day. He grows goya in the garden around the office so has them on hand to help refresh the workers - and this juice really does bring a zing to your day!

This is all you need:

Blitz half a goya (chopped and deseeded, with the white pith removed), 250 ml (about 8 ounces) pineapple juice, about 2 shiso leaves, and honey to taste (I added about 1-2 T.). Blend till frothy (at least a minute and a half) and enjoy!

Note: Even though goya has amazing healthful properties, apparently it is not recommended for use during pregnancy.

Hi Abigail.

How're you doing? You're sounding well:)

I must admit when I first saw the title of this post I thought "You crazy?!'

Now. I've read your post I'm not convinced but think I'll give the recipe a go next summer.

Get back to you then on what I think of it:)

TK - Okagesamade, I'm very genki, thanks! How are you? Let me know how you like the juice - I didn't exactly REALLY enjoy it the first time I had it, but it grows on you.
