When life gives you lemons; you find some apples, carrots, and ginger — then you make this delicious juice! It’s such an easy recipe that I almost didn’t want to share, but this is one of my all-time favourite fresh juices. Sometimes simple really is best. Enjoy this little bit of sunshine in a glass whenever you need a quick dose of vitamins and antioxidants to cleanse your digestive system and rev up your metabolism.
This sweet and spicy juice is brimming with so many health benefits and amazing colour. Just one glass provides your vitamin A and C intake for the day, along with essential nutrients to maintain good health, skin and vision. I make it often, since I usually have these ingredients on hand — it always makes me feel great and gives me tons of energy. Plus the sunny colour seriously makes me happy!
APPLE CARROT LEMON GINGER JUICE
Yield: 16 oz (2 cups)
• 2 apples (I like one red and one green)
• 8 medium carrots
• 1 lemon
• 1/2″ – 1″ piece of ginger (adjust according to your preference, I like it spicy!)
* Organic produce is preferable
Start with chilled produce. Chop all ingredients into 1″ pieces and add them one at a time to your Hurom Slow Juicer (or similar), starting with an ingredient that isn’t as juicy (like ginger), and alternating with an ingredient that makes lots of juice (like apple). This will ensure that the juicy ingredients flush the not-so-juicy ingredients through the juicer and you’ll get more of them in your cup!
Serve over ice, and garnish with a slice of apple or lemon, and enjoy!
