Ingredients
  

  • 4 carrots
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 lime
  • ½ in piece of ginger

Instructions
 

Juicer Method

  • Before juicing, it is important to wash all fruits and vegetables. I personally do not peel organic produce, only conventional ones. Once washed, I cut the produce into large pieces.
  • Turn on your juicer and feed the ingredients through the chute. Use the pusher to guide them into the machine gently.
  • Serve with ice and lemon slices as a mocktail or pick me up.

Blender Method

  • Before juicing, it is important to wash all fruits and vegetables. I personally do not peel organic produce; I only peel conventional ones. Once washed, I cut the produce into large pieces.
  • Place the ingredients in the blender. Add a little bit of water to help the blades move easily. The amount of water will depend on how thick or thin you want your juice. Start with a small amount, like 1/4 cup, and add more as needed.
  • Blend the mixture on high speed until everything is completely pureed and the mixture looks smooth.
  • Place a fine mesh strainer or a nut milk bag over a large bowl or pitcher. Pour the blend through the strainer. Use a spoon or spatula to press the pulp down and extract as much juice as possible.
  • Pour the juice into glasses and enjoy immediately for the best flavor and nutrient content.

Notes

  • If you want to separate the carrot pulp, pass the carrots through the juicer first and then the rest of the ingredients.
  • It is best to use a high-speed blender like a Vitamix or Blendetc.
  • For the best taste and nutrient content, drink your juice immediately after making it.
  • Pulp Usage: Don’t throw away the pulp! It’s great for compost, or you can use it in baking recipes, like carrot muffins or bread.
