Fresh Carrot Juice

Here’s a vegetable juice recipe that has the Good Organic Housekeeping Seal of Approval (ingredients do not have to be organic). Into a food processor add one cup of chopped carrots, two cups of chopped asparagus, and one string bean. Blend on puree until liquid. Set the liquid aside and into the processor add one cup of cucumbers and one cup of Chinese bok choy. Again, puree until liquid. Combine all pureed food and strain. Put back into the juicer and add 4 tablespoons of poppy seeds, then mix, chill in the refrigerator and pour into a large glass to enjoy a delicious glass of fresh juice.

If you’re in the mood for something sweet, try including fresh fruit, such as apples, oranges, cranberries, and pineapples. Actually, any fruit will work. To enjoy a tropical twist, use mangos, bananas, leeches or Kiwi. These juices are sweeter and likely appeal to adults, as much as they do to children. The seeds in many fruits do not be removed, and combine with the vegetable juice to add a crunchy twist. Lemons, limes, cranberries and coconuts add a unique flavor to any drink.

Adding sugar and chilling practically turns them into a frosty desert. Herbs such as mint, ginger, parsley, and cilantro are powerful when it comes to imparting flavor, and the drinks can be made even more nutritious by adding eggs or fish oil, especially cod liver oil. Most of these foods can be purchased at a local supermarket, but some markets specialize in natural and organic foods. Whole Foods is at the top of the list for popularity when it comes to shopping for green leafy vegetables for your juice.
