Carrot Apple Ginger Juice Recipe
I recently acquired a hand-me-down juicer (a Juiceman, similar to this model) and it’s safe to say I’m officially juice-obsessed! I’m still new to juicing, but I thought I’d share some favorite juice recipes I’ve discovered, as well as some other tips I’ve learned along the way.
This was one of the first juice recipes I whipped up. As a kid, we’d occasionally get fresh carrot juice from the health food store and I loved it. The addition of apple gives this a nice sweetness and the ginger gives it some zing. Love!
The ingredients couldn’t be simpler.
- 4-6 carrots
- 1 organic green apple, cored and quartered
- 1 piece of ginger (approx. 1″)
Push all ingredients through your juicer. Make sure you have a glass or jar underneath the spout to catch your juice! (Seriously. Don’t be like me.)
I roughly chop up my apples, but just juice the carrots whole (after removing the tops.) Depending on your juicer you may need to cut up your veggies more. I also don’t bother peeling the carrots, just give them a good scrub with a vegetable brush. Oh, and if you’re like me and end up throwing away a lot of ginger trying to peel it, check out this video on how to peel ginger with a spoon. Life-changing!
- If you’d like a juice with more kick, you can do a larger piece of ginger.
- Use an orange or two instead of apple. Yum!
- Add half a lemon for a juice that’s a little more tart
- Throw in a handful or two of spinach for an even healthier juice. It will make your juice kind of a muddy brown color, but it still tastes great.
- A lot of recipes call for 2 or more apples, but since I wanted this to be more heavy on the carrot, I only used one. But if you wanted a sweeter, more appley juice you could certainly do more.
Once you’ve made your juice, what do you do with the leftover pulp? It seems a shame to just throw it away. Stay tuned for another post with some great ways I’ve found to use it up!
What’s your favorite juice recipe? I’m always looking for new ones to try!
