Immunity Boosting Carrot-Ginger Juice

Posted Jan 17 2013 7:00am

With flu season in full swing, we could probably all use a little immunity boost right about now.

That’s where this tasty juice comes in.

Carrot juice is a nutritional powerhouse! Loaded with vitamin A and beta carotene, carrot juice is a great source of anti-oxidants, and is also thought to cleanse and restore the liver. In fact, the unique synergy of its enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and flavonoids is thought to create a “magical remedy” when juiced. [ source ]

Paired with the leafy green romaine lettuce, spicy ginger, seasonal clementines, and a splash of fresh lemon juice, this juice is not only bursting with flavor, but also with a hefty dose of vitamin C and folate. I like to think of it as a delicious multivitamin, without any synthetic vitamins or fillers!


serves 1

Ingredients:

5 large carrots
1 romaine heart
2 clementines, peeled
1/2 lemon, peeled
1-inch knob of fresh ginger

Directions:

Run all of the ingredients through a juicer, and drink immediately! For best results, use a masticating juicer, like this Omega model , which handles leafy greens and delicate items, such as ginger and clementines, effortlessly.

As always, feel free to adjust any ingredients to suit your personal tastes. If you’d like a sweeter juice, try adding a few more carrots, or a couple drops of liquid stevia , to taste.

Enjoy and stay well!
