It is time for a refreshing and immunity boosting orange, carrot and ginger juice!
Juices are best when made fresh as they can loose nutrients fast.
This juice is packed with vitamin-C, is packed with antioxidant and very hydrating.
I love this juice as it’s sweet has a vibrant color and a hint of spice!
Oranges are not only delicious but also a good source of several vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin C, thiamine, folate, and potassium.
They keep your eyes healthy and your vision sharp!
Oranges also promotes skin health and the vitamin C supports the production of collagen, which is needed to make cartilage, ligaments, tendons, blood vessels and skin.
The carrots add color and sweetness to this juice.
They are a particularly good source of beta carotene, fiber, vitamin K1, potassium, and antioxidants.
Carrots are a weight-loss-friendly food and have been linked to lower cholesterol levels and improved eye health.
Juices are usually packed with too many fruits, which is why I always try to add a vegetables as well.
Now let’s talk fresh ginger, a staple in my household.
Ginger may have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and other healthful properties.
It is a popular home remedy for nausea, stomach pain, and other health issues.
If you have fresh turmeric on hand, I recommend adding it too.
Turmeric packs a major health punch! It is a natural anti-inflammatory, a powerful antioxidant, and has anti-cancer affects.
With that being said, I hope I’ve convinced you to make your own homemade orange, carrot and ginger juice!
I always recommend do wash your produce.
Cut off of peel the skins of the orange. No need to peel the ginger, turmeric root or carrots. The pulp will be strained.
If you are using a high speed blender to make juice, cutting your produce into chunk will help the blender.
When using a juicer, you can leave the fruits and vegetables whole. As long as they fit through the feeding tube.
If you are using a high speed blender, add all of the ingredients to your blender along with 1/4 cup of water.
Blend on high for 30 seconds up to 1 minute then pour the contents into a nut milk bag and strain the juice.
You can discard the pulp or compost it!
If you have a juicer, simply press everything through your juicer.
It's best to consume the juice the same day, however, if you make a bigger amount, store the juice in a glass jar with an air-tight lid in your refrigerator or up to 3 days.
