Apple Carrot Ginger Juice

Updated: Dec 10, 2022

You don't need a juicer to make juices at home. I've been so nervous to try but it really just depends on how good your blender is. Know that any juice recipe that I make and provide (I have no idea how many that will be) will always be made in a blender because I do not have the money or the space to store a juicer at this time. To make juice in a blender, you want a fine mesh strainer and cheesecloth (if you have it but if not, a strainer works just fine). Let's get to the recipe!

NOTES

  • I recommend using a firm apple for this recipe. I used a red delicious apple and once blended, I could taste that it was a soft apple, if that makes sense. It gave a nice flavor but I think a firmer apple would have been better.

  • Don't want to buy a whole bag of carrots just for 2 medium size carrots? I don't blame you. As a mom, I always have baby carrots on hand. 4-5 good sized baby carrots can replace 1 medium carrot. You also don't have to peel them and they're relatively softer than regular carrots so you can just cut them in half and boom! Less prep work!

  • The measurement of "small knob" in reference to ginger really means however much you want. I used what I consider a small knob and I couldn't taste the ginger. So, as the kids say these days, measure with your heart!

  • That goes with the lemon juice and turmeric. Both of those are your own personal preference. Definitely taste your juice before you start adding the lemon juice so you can gage how much you'll want. The lemon actually help balance out my apple taste.

  • Turmeric stains people! Do not use a plastic container to store in the fridge or in the freezer unless you're okay with it turning orange and possibly staying that way. If you don't want to stain an ice tray, you can line it with plastic wrap and then pour. Once the juice is frozen then you can put the cubes into a zip top bag with the number of cubes per serving (remember, this makes approximately 2 servings (about 1 cup each).

  • Want to turn this into your own immunity boosting shot? Divide into 2oz portions and right before serving, add in some fresh cracked black pepper (to your liking), give it a shake or a stir and down that shot!

As always, if you make this recipe, please let me know how you like it in the comments below. I would love to know what apple you used and if you enjoyed it as a drink or a shot! If you share it on social media, please tag me @Myranda.McCaffreyNowak on IG, FB and TikTok!
