Banana juice plus tennis = healthy?  
Just messing around with my camera a little while back.... mrrow!

Does anybody know how I make banana juice? O.o;; I can't find information online about it, but it's obviously doable since I've seen it in the store on rare occasions. I want some banana juice, I guess it's time to experiment!! (bananas plus water maybe???)

I looked at the track listing for the Rokkakumyu soundtrack and... I can't stop laughing!! Talk about engrish, who'd have known that it was that bad? XD;; They were saying "forward, my men"? Really? That's so awful, we all thought they were saying "Over my way" or something similar when we saw the musical over the summer. Oh yeah, I'm dead. It was the only song that I liked apart from "Onna no ko to chuu" and "Shaba daba Dabide" (okay, didn't like the last one, but it was omoshiroi). Okay, and "Kagami no naka no Ore" was goodish, but so... Atobe, yuck. (Though I totally thought that it would be called "Ice and Fire" instead..)

And... omg, they put in the tiny little "yudan sezu ni ikou" into the soundtrack.. XD;; LOL that's not even a song. Meh, gotta go and pick up my copy next week with the DVD. So nostalgic... =D Ahh, summer memories. =D

Hmm, banana plus water doesn't sound very good. I'd try another fruit juice -- perhaps white grape or apple. They often use both of these juices to pad out drinks made with rarer or more expensive fruit.

I really liked Shaba Daba Dabide, it was one of my favourites. And Yudan sezu ni ikou isn't funny unless it's given the glory it deserves -- like a full track on a CD. I totally didn't hear the 'forward my men' either... But in the past I've got really frustrated at being unable to understand a song only to find out it was entirely in English.

Anyway, hope your banana juice turns out ok.

I tried it with apple juice like you suggested. It's good, but much more tart than the juice that I've had before. Hmmmm..... I really wonder how to make it, my mind is boggled, maybe I can wait outside the juicer next timeI'm in Tokyo station and see how they make it. O.O

Possibly banana with milk? But I guess that'd be more like a banana milkshake without the ice cream...

That company produces Banana juice, so perhaps that can help some ^^

And yeh i totally agree they were saying "Forward my men"?! lol

And the Yudan sezu ni ikou cracked me up so very much

And ahh yes summer memories ^^ I still remember how fun karaoke was wiht you and Ulriche (did i spell her name right?) I should be back in May, we should go again lol
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 14th, 2006 06:55 am (UTC)
I don't think that a company that sells it will help at all (I found the websites of course too, but I want to know how to make it...)

Of course we should go again to karaoke! ^^

Ahh mmkies! Juice can be difficult because bananas typically are not a juicy fruit. But I say maybe fidn liek a apple juice recipe and substitute apple for bananas?

ANd yay karaoke lol we can do "Pour Some Sugar On Me" LOL Ahh, that was all so fun

I've not heard of juice but i do know there are smoothies, and then it's usually done with another fruit, such as kiwi.
No recipes for juice, I'm afraid, but here's the links to the smoothies one..

Edit that: - XD found it here,

http://www.anjungcafe.com/viewcontent/2978 [non-english site]

the translated recipe goes roughly like this
2 bananas
1/2 glass of fresh milk
1 tsp of honey

slice the bananas
blend with milk and honey
serve with ices

Hope it worked
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 14th, 2006 06:54 am (UTC)
Thanks, but I've had banana smoothies tons of times before... this time I want to know how to make the juice. I like the juice even better than smoothies.
Janellechibi_rei on November 14th, 2006 06:45 am (UTC)
I think cuz of a banana's consistency it wouldn't be good as juice. Smoothie is your best bet.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 14th, 2006 06:53 am (UTC)
I've had both better. Bananas are good in smoothies, but I like banana juice better actually, it's just really hard to find.
Janellechibi_rei on November 14th, 2006 11:10 pm (UTC)
Really? Hmm maybe I will have to try and find some of this elusive banana juice then ^^

I don't think you can make banana juice like you've had; the process of making banana juice includes clarification, which involves a whole bunch of evaporation apparatus, I believe. To quote a study on enzymes, "Raw banana juice is turbid, viscous and gray in colour." (http://cat.inist.fr/?aModele=afficheN&cpsidt=17551408) The study found the ideal ratio of enzymes to help the clarification of banana juice, so I don't think you can make banana juice at home. >_<
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 14th, 2006 10:14 am (UTC)
Hmm, that's really odd. I wonder what the stores that sell "fresh juice" do to make it. They have it in blenders up front and seem to make it themselves.. ahhh I wish that I could ask!

I only know how to make banana milk :/

But another thing catched my eye: THIS PHOTO OF YOU is sooo damn adorable !!! ^________________^

Hmm, I've never actually have banana juice, but I don't think I'd really like it. Good luck making it~ :D

Haha, I thought the same thing about 'Forward, my men.' I spent the whole song time listening for those words xD

That is a cute picture :D

Ok.. I don't like bananas O.O yeah.. big shocker to most, but the only way I do eat it is on a drink/juice/shake. What I do is blend two a banana per glass of milk and just add some sugar to taste. you can put as many bananas per glass of milk as you like, it the more bananas, the thicker the juice/shake is going to be, and it is REALLY GOOD. Like I said, the only way I would have a banana ^_^

THE HAT, THE HAT!!! I love it :DDDDD

Ok, what is wrong with me today.... -_-;;;
