carrot, red pepper and apple juice
Here is another recipe that coincides with my 2012 goal of eating healthier and juicing is one of the best ways to do that. As long as you have a juicer they're so simple to do and very delicious. If you don't have one, you might want to think about making the investment. It's a great tool to make your diet healthier and you can get one that isn't that expensive.
I came up with this juice last week and loved it so much I wanted to share it with all of you! It's a semi sweet juice with a kick of spice. Usually when I've juiced in the past, I've thrown in about six or seven different kinds of veggies. Now, I've decided to scale it back for the sake of time, but I've also found when you only use about three veggies, it tastes a lot better as well.
This recipe is for one serving:
- 3 Organic Carrots
- 1/2 Organic Red Pepper
- 2 Organic Granny Smith Apples
- First rinse off and cut up all the veggies. I just sliced the ends off of the carrots (you can add the stems if you want, they are full of nutrients). I sliced the stem off of the pepper and then cut it in quarters, making sure all the seeds are out. For the apples, I just sliced them like in the photo below and cut any seeds out.
- Now all you have to do is juice it. How you do this will depend on what kind of juicer you have.
- After you've juiced everything, pour in a cup and enjoy! How easy is that?
This juice is so refreshing, I often drink it for breakfast!
