Carrot, Apple, Strawberry & Ginger Juice

Carrot, apple, strawberry & ginger juice

I am totally obsessed with this juice this week. I’ve had it every morning so far and wow does it make getting up so much more fun! I go in phases of different flavoured juices but I come back to this one a lot. I just love the combination of carrots, apples, strawberries and ginger. It’s kind of perfect. Deliciously sweet yet not overly sugary, thanks to the veggie input, and with a wonderful ginger fuelled kick.

Not only does each glass of this taste divine, but drinking it everyday will do absolute wonders for your health and energy levels, as juicing allows extra nutrients to be absorbed since it effectively  bypasses your need for digestion. Through one glass of this liquid goodness you’ll have absorbed 3 fantastic portions of fruits and vegetables before you’ve even sat down for breakfast, which is pretty awesome. So by the time I’ve had my toast piled high with creamy avocado, lime and tomato I’ve already reached the governments recommended 5-a-day! Not that I’ll stop there though, I try to get 8-10 delicious servings each day to maintain great health.

The other thing I love about juicing, other then how delicious each glass always tastes and how amazing it makes me feel, is how good it makes my skin. I always notice how much brighter and cleaner my skin is when I’m in my juicing routine. It’s awesome! All the anti-oxidants, beta-carroteine and the vitamin A really leave your skin glowing. You are what you eat after all, and this juice is a bucket of goodness.

This particular juice is also amazing if you’re looking to fight off a winter cold and fancy a shake up from your go-to orange juice, as thanks to the strawberries and carrots each glass has almost twice your recommended daily dose of vitamin C,  which will leave you happy and healthy all day long. Having some ginger first thing in the morning is also a great idea as it really aids digestion meaning you’re stomach is awake and alert by the time you starting munching!

Simply put all the ingredients into the juicer and you’re good to go!

Top tip – juice the ginger at the same time as the apples or carrots to get maximum flavour out of it!

Sip and enjoy.

    Anything with ginger has to be a winner.
    Would you mind sharing your juicing routine please? What kind of fruit? How long for?

      I try to juice once a day, either pre-breakfast or as an afternoon snack. I’ve never done a juice cleanse or anything as I need the energy that my food gives me. I tend to mainly eat veggies in the day so try to get some fruit in in the morning so I’ll make a juice like this or an apple, kiwi, pear and ginger. Hope you enjoy this one!

    I have been juicing for a week now. It is amazing and does wonderful things to the body! Especially with digestion because of POTS I would get very symptomatic every time I would eat something – for some reason the effort of digestion was just too much. I am a HUGE advocate for juicing!

    • http://ellawoodward.wordpress.com Ella Woodward

      That’s the main reason why I love juicing, it helps so much with all my POTs symptoms too and just gives me great energy all round. So glad to have found a fellow POTS juicer! Enjoy

    Yes, this morning I did this juice combination-before looking up the article. I was so happy to see that I was right on target. The pic’s are on point, and the article is light & very informative. Just like the juice! Thank you :-)

      Hi Josie. So glad that you love my recipes! If you go to the food philosophy section of the blog you’ll find a link to my juicer :)

  • Natalie

    Hi Ella! I’m extremely anxious to try all you juice recipes but do not have a juicer. I’m looking to buy one but am completely lost. Is there a brand or model you prefer?

    • ellawoodward

      If you have a look at the food philosophy section of my blog you’ll find a link to the juicer I love!

  • Liz

    Hi Ella, I’m new to your blog and have just spent a good hour trawling through it – LOVE it!
    I really enjoy juicing, moreso than blending as I seem to get strangely bloated afterwards. I was just wondering, when you juice so many fruits in one go, isn’t that bad for blood sugar levels (carrots are apparently v.sweet)? I thought having a majority of veggies in a juice is better?
    Would love to know your thoughts! :)

      Hi Liz,

      Vegetables are lower in sugar but I still like a bit of sweetness in my juice!

    Hi Ella,

    Love that you included ginger in the recipes, the spiciness is a nice contrast to the sweetness of strawberry. I haven’t tried combining ginger with strawberry and because of this post, I’ll try it and see how it goes.

    By the way, I have a strawberry juice recipe that you might want trying, here it is >> http://www.juicingwithg.com/guilt-free-green-strawberry-juice/

    All the best,

    Hi,

    Love this recipe, I’m quite new to juicing, just wondered if you add ice or water? What kind of consistency should this be?

    Thanks, Philippa xxx

    • ellawoodward

      Hi Philippa,
      I hope you love juicing! You don’t need to add water and ice only if you want it colder.

    Hi! I’m a big fan of yours! May I know what type/brand of juicer do you use?

    delicious! my new favorite juice!

  • Bea

    Hi Ella, I was just wondering, would all of your juicing recipes still be as delicious blended in a high speed blender like a blendtec or are they more directed for juicers only? Thanks, Bee x
