Lately, I've been enjoying playing around in my kitchen ~ with my juicer. There is something so satisfying about shoving all those fruits & veggies down the chute and watching the glass fill up with liquid nectar. I'm having so much fun, that even cleaning the juicer doesn't bother me. Yup, I'm a kitchen geek!
I was pleasantly surprised when I made this super simple juice ~ Carrot-Apple Juice with Ginger. The thing that surprised me was how much I love including a slice (or two) of fresh ginger with the other ingredients. The ginger's flavor is subtle, but it brightens up & immensely improves the over-all taste of every juice recipe I've added it to. I'm hooked & think I'll be including a few slices of ginger to all my juicer drink recipes now. :)
Fresh Carrot-Apple Juice with Ginger
- 2 carrots
- 1 apple
- 2 slices ~ fresh, peeled ginger 'coins' ~ 1/8 inch slices (more or less, to taste)
Cut carrots & apple into chunks that will fit into your juicer. Shove the chunks, along with the ginger slice(s), down the chute & juice away.
Serve straight-up or over ice.
