Kicked Up Carrot Juice and a House Update

by zesty on September 28, 2009 · 17 comments

Happy Monday to you!

I am aboard a plane to sunny (or maybe not) California this morning.  There are lots of things going on right now but I did manage to have a nice family weekend.  We had a fun Friday evening visiting our Grandmother, a visit to the house build on Saturday along with a visit to the Vet College Open House. Yesterday, we had a birthday party to attend. I hope to get a lot accomplished throughout the week regarding zesty and all the blog makeovers that are on my list.  I also have another pretty big announcement to make in the very near future.

I was out at the house talking to a few contractors on Saturday and trying to get everything organized for the week I am gone.  I added some updated pictures at the bottom of the post to keep you up to date on the progress.

Back to the food… or juice!  We bought a  juicer back when I was on a big juice kick .  It faded away the last little while but I wanted to share with you a fun juice to have when you are craving something a little different.

Carrots are a great way to get into juicing…. they are a great staple for any juice recipe. They provide a good base to mix in and experiment with other vegetables. They are not too sweet and not too bitter.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 inch piece of ginger
  • 1 apple
  • 4 carrots

Method

  1. Cut the ginger leave the skin on.
  2. Core the apples.
  3. Slice off the tips of the carrots.
  4. juicer

  5. Put through juice extractor.

Zesty Tip: A lot of people tell me that the juice that comes out of the juicer is too warm – I totally agree.  I like to add the juice to an ice bath after I make it for about 15 -20 minutes to reduce the temperature of the juice.  Try it!

Good luck with everything you’ve got going on lately! Sounds like you’re super busy!
That juice sounds good! I’d like to try it, but I have no juicer – maybe I’ll try it in the blender.

If you want a slightly sweeter / smoother flavor, try juicing baby carrots instead.

Believe it or not, but I think that the larger the carrot, the sweeter it is to me. Your house brought back memories when I was building back in the 90′s. I wish you the best and thanks for the juices.
