Here’s How to Prepare Carrot and Orange Juice with Nectarine, Apple and Ginger
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 5 (1/2-cup servings)
- If you’re using a blender, squeeze orange juice into the blender.
- Add apple, nectarine, carrots, ginger, and mint (optional)
- Top the ingredients with filtered water
- Cover and blend until everything gets combined
- Blending shouldn’t take more than 30 seconds. Do not overblend
- Put a thin, clean towel over a large mixing bowl and pour over the juice along with the pulp.
- Gather the corners of the towel and squeeze. Keep squeezing until all the juice have been extracted and the pulp remains in the towel.
Pulp could be composted or used in baked goods.
It’s best to enjoy the juice immediately, or within 12-24 hours to get all the vitamin and mineral content. If you choose to refrigerate, you can do so for 2-3 days, but not all the vitamins and minerals will be there.
