Carrot Ginger Juice Recipe

This carrot ginger juice gives us ample reasons to be outrageously happy. Why? How easy it is to toss together, how numerous the health benefits it boasts, how invigorated it makes us feel, and namely how lovely and subtly sweet it tastes.

Carrot Ginger Juice Recipe

Yeah, we know, you’ve probably already experienced carrot ginger juice. And chances are it was made with carrots and orange juice. Which is fine and perfectly lovely. But we think you’re really going to be pleased you tried this unconventional rendition of carrot ginger juice made with pear instead. Not only because, as the author says, “pears are low in sugar, and therefore a great way to satiate your sweet tooth without terrorizing your blood sugar.” And not because we’ve got anything against citrus or because it quell your cravings for a Hershey’s chocolate cake. Because the resulting juice simply tastes spectacular. And because it just may surprise the bejeepers out of you at how much the juice will pep and propel you in a way you’ve probably never experienced before beyond an assist from caffeine or refined sugar. Go on. Give it a twirl. And then get back to us.–Renee Schettler Rossi

We are relatively new to the juicing scene and a few months ago invested in an amazing masticating juicer. We just love it and are always looking for new recipes to try. This one is great. We used kale in ours. Best to use the kale first, but remember it's best to cut off the stalk and cut out the spine, otherwise it could really clog up your machine. Also best to use ripe pears to get as much sweetness out of them as possible. The natural sweetness is wonderful and helps cut the "green" raw flavor of the kale. The ginger packed a bit of a punch, but we like ginger so we didn't mind at all.

Sunshine in a glass! The sweetness of the carrots and pear are perfectly complemented by the refreshing lemon and the spicy ginger, resulting in a juice that is not too sweet and has a little kick. This energizing drink is great straight out of the juicer. Need something a little cooler? Pop it into the freezer for healthful gourmet popsicles that will cool you off on a hot summer day.
