I'd first tasted Jeff's famous GREEN JUICE was at the now defunct Chaya Cafe and then at Rojo Beach Bar & Lounge and I was HOOKED. It's the perfect thing to do with a pineapple. Even better than just eating the pineapple. Here is the recipe. And it is originally from the Cayo region. From a man named Saeed who works in bamboo - art and furniture - who prepared the juice many years ago.
- A pineapple
- 10 leaves of chaya - de-stemmed and any big veins removed
- a knob of ginger peeled
- a glug of honey (to taste)
- ice cubes
- juice of a lime
- Chop - depends on the rigor of your blender. Add a bit of water to facilitate whirring.
Absolutely ridiculously over-the-top delicious and with the right amount of ginger, pretty zippy.
