This week one of my high school teachers posted on my Facebook wall that she had a brand new juicer that she was looking to give away, and would I be interested? Ever since I tried the Suja Juice Cleanse I've been hooked on juicing and have had my eye out for a juicer ever since. After purchasing far too many pre-made fresh pressed juices I was ecstatic to finally be able to make my own - thanks again Mrs. Bird - you rock!!
One of my favourite juices has always been the combination of carrot and orange - more orange than carrot if I had it my way, and more carrot than orange if Marc had it his way! The juice below is a good combination of both of our favourites, with a couple of tart apples and spicy ginger thrown into the mix for an extra boost of flavour! This juice is the perfect juice to wake up to that will ignite not only your taste buds, but also to give you a ton of energy for the rest of the day! If you're cleansing, I would recommend this as your first or second juice of the morning.
Recipe makes 4 - 1 cup servings
- 2 lb bag of carrots
- 2 Oranges
- 2 Apples
- 1 tsp fresh ginger
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
Wash fruits & veggies and remove ends of carrots, orange peels, apple cores, and peel the ginger.
Add all ingredients to your juicer - reserve the pulp for another use, such as muffins (recipe coming soon!).
Juice can be refrigerated for up to a week, but will contain the most nutrients if consumed immediately.
