Carrot apple ginger juice is the best thing that’s ever happened to my skin! It’s filled with Vitamin A (the #1 beauty vitamin), and when I drink it regularly, my skin becomes smoother and more even toned. But… it’s much more than just a surface fix, our skin reflects our overall health, so glowing skin is a good indicator things are going well.

Carrot apple juice is the first raw juice I tried when my family started eating healthier, and I was hooked on it from the first taste! I love this simple flavor combination spiced up with ginger. It’s also my favorite way to treat a cold: whenever I feel like I’m coming down with something, I drink lots of carrot apple juice with loads of extra ginger, and I start feeling better in no time!

Today, we’re going to talk a bit about juicing without a juicer. We own a juicer, but I wanted to try out this blender method for making juice because I think it makes juicing so much more accessible. It’s definitely easier and less messy than regular juicing. The only downside I can see is the juice comes out a bit more watered down than it would from a juicer (both Tyler and I thought it tasted great though).

After prepping my ingredients, I layered them in the blender and added the water. After blending, you’ll have a thick purée and there’s a number of ways to strain it.

1. You can use several layers of cheesecloth placed in a strainer. With this method, you’ll need a big container to place under your strainer to catch your juice.

2. Nut milk bags or juicing bags – my juicer has bags that are pressed to extract the juice, but nut milk bags have similar qualities. After blending, I hung my bag from the handle of my kitchen cupboard and placed a bowl under the bag to catch the juice. When I poured the purée into the bag, it seemed to drain pretty well on it’s own, but I hurried it along by squeezing it (took about 5 minutes).

And… that’s all there is to it, no need to run out and buy a juicer if you don’t want to!

      It’s usually best to drink fresh juices as soon as you can after they’re made for optimal nutrition, although I do keep them up to 2 days sometimes. But with anything fresh (not pasteurized) always use your best judgement and throw out anything that smells off. I hope you enjoy the recipe, and be sure to let me know how it goes, or if you have anymore questions!

    I have this juice at least two times a week. What are the benefits of having this juice? Is it a gut detox?

    1. Kari

      It’s a good source of Vitamin A, potassium, antioxidents, and the ginger aids in digestion. I’m not sure what you mean about a gut detox, but I do love having this juice after too many rich meals to help my body recuperate!

    I don’t have a juicer and do everything in the blender- spinach, cucumber, kale, apple- any mixture you can think of. I don’t mind the texture and fiber I get with the blender, but I’ve never tried straining it- so thanks for the idea!

    1. Kari

      I usually make smoothies, but I’ve been getting into juicing as well! I tried a green juice version of this recipe recently, and the blended up kale clogged up the straining bag. So far I haven’t been able to make green juice through the straining bag, but I think fine textured cheesecloth might work! Let me know if you try out any green juices and how it goes.
