Mighty Carrot, Banana, Yuzu, Kelp Stock Juice During Holiday Seasons

Posted on Nov 19, 2014 in Hiroko's Blog, Recipes

At the end of the year we have lots of celebrations with family and friends. One celebration with specific feast comes one after another. When things get too much, our stomach need a rest. In the morning when you feel such a yearn, make and enjoy this juice. Kelp stock is not just rich in umami (savory flavor), but is very rich in dietary fiber. In Japan there is a generally accepted folklore that drinking kelp stock will help to keep you “regular”. This is a juice in which the kelp stock is the base. You can add your favorite fruits but do not forget give a splash of yuzu juice to this very special season drink.

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon yuzu juice

Pinch sea salt

Ice cubes
