Food: Carrot Apple Juice

Hello, MBG readers! Fallon, of Sage + Sparkle here, sharing a healthy treat...Carrot Apple Juice. At the start of a new year, who doesn't love a good detox, and juice or smoothies are the perfect way to start. I typically have a fresh green juice every morning, but there are days that I love to throw in a little variety and this juice is the perfect way to do so. Carrots are really the star in this recipe, helping to cleanse the digestive system, on top of being an antioxidant, and boosting your immune system. Add in the apple and ginger, plus lemon and chia seeds and you have a winning, healthy combination.  

*Please note: you will need a juicer to try this recipe, I recommend the this one

Ingredients:
  • 1 green apple (cut into pieces, removing the core)
  • 4-5 large carrots *
  • 1 sm piece of fresh ginger (about the size of thumb)
  • 1 lemon (peeled)
Fun Fact: When it comes to carrots, the deeper the orange, the higher the concentration of beta-carotene

This looks fantastic and love incorporating the chia seeds and ginger into the mix. I think 3 of my friends got juicers for Christmas and have been asking me to juice with them. I'll have to send them this recipe :) Thanks for sharing!
