A super tasty homemade juice that deliciously merges the tangy flavor of oranges with the sweetness of pears and carrots. The finishing touch to make this homemade juice one of your go-to recipes is the spice from fresh ginger root. Yum!
Making a fresh juice with nutrient-rich ingredients for anyone who has done it is a satisfying and energizing experience. That first taste of powerhouse garden-fresh deliciousness, combined with the energetic boost for your mind and body that you know is coming can kick start your day in the best way!
I started juicing again about 4 years ago when a friend told me about the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. Joe Cross, the filmmaker, drinks only fruit and vegetable juice for 60 days in an effort to reclaim his health and lose weight.
What prompted our conversation? I had not seen my friend in a couple of months and on this occasion I noticed that she looked healthier, her skin was glowing, she was more energetic and all around lighter and brighter.
I thought immediately, Hey! I could use some of this lightness and brightness thing and definitely the glowing skin! So, I watched the documentary then did some research and bought a juicer that very next day and I’ve been making my own fresh juice and vegetable combinations ever since.
FRESH ORANGE PEAR CARROT JUICE RECIPE RECAP
√ Benefits: Energy, Immunity, and Detox
√ Sweet, Tangy and Spicy
√ Nutrients: Beta-carotene, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium
- Choose pears that are harder, not over-ripe or soft. Over-ripe pears are hard to pass through the juicer and result in a more smoothie-like texture.
- Use either an electric or manual citrus juicer for extracting the juice from the oranges. When you use a citrus juicer you will get the most out of your citrus and you won’t have to peel them.
- A juicer needs to be cleaned immediately after use to make it easy to clean. Sometimes if time is tight, I will clean the filter basket immediately and soak the rest of the juicer parts in warm soapy water until later.
