Carrot and Ginger Juice

Losing weight/ healthier eating is the most common new year’s resolution for 2017. That said, I normally purpose to share healthy recipes on here with the occasional indulgent dish. This carrot and ginger juice is perfect for those trying to incorporate juices into their diet but are still scared to venture into the green juices.

carrot-ginger-leotunapika-7I’ve had my juicer for a while now. Up until late last year, I’d only used it to juice pineapples and apples. After an episode where I ran out of my usual as I was making juice for my daughter, I decided to juice some carrots. As you probably know carrots can be a tad too sweet and thus I added some ginger to cut through the sweetness and add the much needed kick.

Since then, I’ve made this juice regularly. I’ve modified the recipe a little with the addition of limes. Aren’t limes just the best? From their floral aroma to the touch of acidity. Just right.

Juice the carrots, ginger and lime as per your juicer’s manual. Another great thing with juicing is there’s no need to peel just ensure your fruits and vegetables are scrubbed clean and juice away.
