Carrot Apple Ginger Juice

Carrot juice pairs well with apples, tomatoes, greens and almost any vegetable or fruit. It is one of those versatile vegetables that are terrific for juicing. Carrot juice is most known for delivering a hefty amount of vitamin A, C, calcium among other necessary vitamins. Specifically they are rich in beta-carotene, folic acid, C, small amounts of B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, biotin and E. They have calcium, chlorine, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, sulphur, small amounts of copper, iron and zinc.

Drink it for healthy skin, eyes and for good bone density. It helps to purify and feed nutrients to your cells and many people who are sick with cancer and other terminal illnesses juice a good amount for its potent healing properties.

Juicing carrot juice is quite simple. Clean and prep the carrots, and remove the tops. Tops to carrots can be toxic. If the carrots are very wide or long, you may want to cut them in half to prep them for your juicer. But most people just leave them as is and feed them through their juicer. It is one of the simplest pieces of produce to juice just because of its long shape. Once you’ve processed the juice through your juicer, it’s ready to consume.

Carrots are the richest plant source of vitamin A, and a good source of potassium.
Apples contain antioxidants that help protect “good” cholesterol levels in the blood.
Ginger root reduces nausea, pain and inflammation, and provides heartburn relief. It also aids digestion and may help to boost the body’s thermogenesis and metabolism.
  • 4 carrots
  • 1 apple
  • ½ inch knob of ginger
  • Wash all produce well. Core the apple. Add all ingredients through juicer and enjoy! I love this combo.
Note: if you don't have a juicer:-
  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, adding a splash of apple juice if needed to get it moving.
  2. Then, place a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl and pour the juice over. Use a rubber spatula to press the pulp down and squeeze all of the juice out. Let stand for 5 minutes so you get most of the juice. Discard pulp and pour your juice into a serving glass.
