How to make carrot orange juice
I use my omega juicer to make most fresh juices I consume- it’s an undeniable powerhouse. Although… Confession: sometimes I don’t have the motivation to pull out and assemble a juicer and I simply make this in my Vitamix. It takes a bit more prep work as you need to chop the carrots into smaller pieces and strain the juice but you can absolutely make it happen!
I wash the carrots really well, or just peel them if I’m after that instant grat. Is it just me or does peeling feel like waaaay less work than washing?
If you’re using a blender to make this carrot juice with orange and ginger, make sure to further chop the carrots into 1-2″ pieces.
I’m on team ginger 150%. I use a 2-3″ piece of ginger to make this, as I really enjoy the aroma and the gingery burn. You can definitely experience the flavor and health bennies with a smaller 1″ piece of peeled ginger.Print
Can we talk winning combinations? This carrot, orange, and ginger juice recipe is here to amplify your morning. Carrot orange ginger juice is well-balanced, delicious, and a nutritional powerhouse. Goodbye mimosa, hello longevity!
2 medium oranges, peeled
4 medium carrots
1“-3” fresh ginger root, peeled
- First things first, peel your oranges and separate them into segments that will easily fit into your juicer.
- Next, prepare the carrots. Chop the green tops and the tips, and either wash or peel the carrots.
- Slice the carrots into pieces that will fit into the chute of your juicer. Or, if using a blender, cut into 1″-2″ pieces for easy blending.
- Peel the ginger using the back of a spoon and cut a 1″-3″ piece to use, depending on how zippy you want this to be!
- Drop your ingredients into your juicer and enjoy your fresh orange carrot ginger juice! Cheers!
- If using a blender, place all ingredients into the blender cup and blend on high for 1-2 minutes. Pour through a nutmilk bag and slowly squeeze to separate the juice from the solids.
*I like this juice to be really cold, and I like to drink it as soon as it’s out of my juicer. Tip: toss your oranges into the refrigerator the night before you plan to make this and it’ll be cold!
*Don’t put the ginger into the juicer last. Anytime I juice ingredients that are potent and only require a small amount, I always sandwich them between other, juicer items. Example: I’d run a few pieces of orange through the juicer, then my 2″ piece of ginger, followed by more orange juice. This way you’re sure to catch all that ginger goodness v. leaving it behind in your machine!
