Ugly But Yummy Juice

I’ve been juicing regularly over the past few weeks, and I love it. Our CSA box always contains several bunches of greens, and anything I don’t use in salads or stir fries, I juice. My “usual combo” is some greens (spinach, Romaine lettuce, kale, collard greens, Swiss chard, etc.), one cucumber, one lemon, other citrus (oranges, pomelos…) and two small apples. The green juice is beautiful.

The other day I needed to use up some kale that was getting a bit too old in the fridge, and I was in the mood for something different. I decided to add lots of carrots, two small apples, and a good amount of ginger. For some reason, I had never made carrot juice… Not sure why….

The juice was delicious, but it was certainly not the prettiest juice I’ve ever made…

Questions: What’s your favorite way to eat/drink carrots? I love peas and carrots in sesame sauce. But  I think carrot juice is a close second! Can’t wait to make it “pretty” by not adding any greens next time… Smile Do you like carrot juice? I can’t wait to make some “pure” carrot juice with apples and ginger.

Be well,
