It is absolutely no secret I am not a foodie type of gal. I eat to survive but I am not one that will google “Best places to eat in Chicago.” I do not like eating weird meats and animal products in general, so when it comes to food when I travel I just focus on what I am going to do vs where I am going to eat. That being said, when I go to festivals I really try to venture out of my comfort zone and try something different.
(side note, I annoy everyone I love because I never know where I want to eat, nor do I care)
I do however love eating anything vegetarian or vegan. I love fruits & veggies. I love plant based foods because to me they taste best and often after eating them, I feel my best. So when I went to the DFW Dragonboat festival imagine my surprise when I discovered sugarcane juice.
In short, it wasn’t nearly as sweet as I anticipated, but at the same time, it was quite refreshing. I also love that it was not a dairy based drink but fresh pressed juice.
It was a ton of fun watching them make it. They literally pressed the sugar cane & squeeze the juice out. It was highly entertaining (at least to me but I am easily entertained). I thought cane was really hard but this machine made it into mush. I am pretty sure I giggled, but again I am easily entertained.
the end result??? Cold, refreshing, yumminess.
I highly suspect sugar cane juice will taste way better in Asia, and that is a theory I can’t wait to try out. Have you had sugarcane juice?
