Carrot Ginger Juice


I feel like we are already in the middle of  summer in the North-East.  With this hot and steamy weather, every one is looking for some thing to cool off.  I love juice.  But when I look at the nutritional values in the label of  juice drinks or  smoothies they are all loaded with lots of sugar.  So I decided to make my own juice this summer.  This morning I made this Carrot Ginger juice.  with the sweetness of the veggies and fruits, ginger gives a nice spicy flavor to this juice.  Here is the recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium carrots
  • 1 tart apple (like granny smith)
  • 1 large orange
  • 1/4 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/2 inch piece of ginger

Method:

  • Peel and wash carrots
  • Wash apple and slice them (no need to peel the skin since it gives the tart taste)
  • Peel the orange and break into quarters
  • Peel and wash the ginger and chop them into rough pieces
  • First add carrots to juicer
  • Now add ginger and then the rest of the fruits (in this way, you will be getting all the ginger extract  into your juice)
  • Transfer to a bowl and lime juice (I like lime juice compared to lemon juice since lime juice has a strong taste and better flavor)
  • Transfer to juice glasses and add ice if needed.
