Ahh fresh produce season! This is such a great time of year.
Farmers markets are back. Grocery store prices are cheap. And options are bountiful. I start craving more fruits and veggies as the weather gets warmer.
I’ve also been craving fresh, homemade juices. I love the ones at Whole Foods but for $6 a pop I can’t make those a part of my weekly routine. So I’ve started making my own! Josh and I made this carrot apple ginger juice last week and fell in love with the refreshing, light taste. As soon as I tried it I knew I had to share the recipe with you.
- Turn on your juicer and press the carrot pieces through, making sure to go slow and steady to not damage the machine
- Add the ginger and mint next
- Finish by adding the apple slices
- Remove from juicer and transfer to a airtight storage container
- Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled (It tastes best when it’s ice cold)
- *Note: The carrot and apple juices have a tendency to separate when left sitting. Just shake or stir the juice to get everything combined again before serving.
From raw ingredients to juice in 5 minutes. I always thought veggie juices would taste gross, until I tried them! They key is to pair a vegetable with a fruit! Apples give this juice the sweet taste it needs.
Delicious and oh so tasty.
