Jalapeno-Lime Carrot Juice for Fathers Day

My dad likes his juices spicy. He often tells me of of the latest adventures with his Champion juicer, almost always spicier and stranger than the last one. I recall a time he drank a quart of rhubarb juice…then there is his “whatever’s in the fridge” specialty…he has interesting tastes that one 😉

The last time I had a visit from my dad this was the concoction I came up with to please his taste buds. Be careful with the jalapeno- a little goes a long way!

Happy Father’s Day dad!


3 pounds carrots
as much jalapeno as you can stand, with or without seeds (he’s up to two whole jalapenos WITH seeds these days. I like half a pepper, minus seeds.)
2 limes, peeled
a bit of stevia (optional)
a handful of cilantro (optional)

Juice and drink! Prepare to sweat.

Thanksgiving Menu Mishap and Jalapeno Almond Hot Chocolate

Yesterday I promised a week of recipes leading up to our Living Thanksgiving. Today, however, my plans were foiled. I was disappointed to discover that there is absolutely NO fresh corn to be found, I was obviously not thinking seasonally when I planned my menu. Todays recipe has been put on hold until I can re-design our dinner plans. Tomorrow you will see the first of the Living Thanksgiving extravaganza, in the mean time here is a yummy recipe creation used as an attempt to warm up a chilly morning. Its dark, smoky, and deliciously spicy.


1 1/2 cups fresh almond milk
1 jalapeno, seeds and stem removed (use half if you want less heat)
1-2 dropperfuls NuNaturals vanilla stevia
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
a pinch of sea salt
a drop or two almond extract (optional)

Place the almond milk and jalapeno in a saucepan and bring to boiling. Turn down heat and let simmer about 5 minutes. Remove jalapeno and whisk or blend with the remaining ingredients.
