Juicing Peaches, Mangoes and Basil

With summer in full swing, I decided to try juicing peaches, the sweetest fruits of the season. Along with mangoes, these are some of my favorites. While most use their abundance of peaches for pies and cobblers, I prefer to juice mine.  Adding basil gives the juice a unique twist and makes it totally irresistible!

Juicing peaches is simple to do. Using a commercial juicer, the process takes only seconds due to the delicate flesh of the fruit. Don’t have a commercial juicer? No problem. This blend can be whipped up just as easily using a traditional blender.

1 mango, sliced, pit removed

2 peaches, sliced, pits removed

6 basil leaves

For best results when using a commercial juicer, add mango first, then basil, followed by the peaches. The reason? You don’t want your basil to get lost in the juicer blades. You want it in your glass!

Delicious. Simply delicious!

Added benefit: Basil is a wonderful digestive aid.
