Our own recipe, although we weren’t the only ones to think this up…

I know I’ve talked about the juicer my grandmother bought us before, and how awesome it is. I’ve also mentioned how we no longer buy juice at the store, something that we started as a cost-cutting measure and continued because it’s not really necessary. It seems the experts recommend that you eat a piece of fruit rather than drink juice if you’re looking for nutrition, and just drink water if you’re looking for hydration. So that’s what we do, but we do still enjoy homemade juice as an occasional treat (like twice per month), and this one is our favorite. If you have a juicer at home, you may never go back after juicing carrots — they’re cheap, healthy, and the perfect level of sweet. Add in a little apple and a thumb sized piece of ginger and you’ll slurp it down in 5 seconds flat.
- 6 medium-large carrots, washed
- 4 medium apples, washed and sliced in half
