Author Notes

I don't have too much to say about this recipe other than I've been enjoying variations of it for years and it's one of my favorite ways to use fresh carrots. You need a juicer to make this recipe: I have one made by Omega and I love it. —WinnieAb

What You'll Need
  • 4 large organic carrots, tops trimmed off and cut into pieces to accomodate your juicer
  • 1 medium red apple (I like Fujis), peeled if not organic, and sliced into pieces to accomodate your juicer
  • 1 chunk of peeled fresh ginger (the size of your thumb if you love ginger; use less if you're not a huge fan)
  • 1 small whole organic Meyer lemon, cut in half
  1. Process ingredients through your juicer. Stir to combine, then serve right away. Make sure not to drink in one gulp, though- try to sip it slowly. Enjoy.

I grew up in a restaurant family (my parents owned the now closed Quilted Giraffe in NYC) and I've always loved to cook. My interest in the connection between food and health led me to pursue a graduate degree in naturopathic medicine. I don't practice medicine anymore; I have a blog called Healthy Green Kitchen that I started in May of 2009 and I wrote a book called One Simple Change that will be published in January, 2014. I live in upstate New York with my family and many pets.

I have a ton of carrots that I'm trying to keep from going bad. I also have exactly one apple and one knob of ginger. I know what Monday morning's breakfast will be...

Made a couple of these tonight. The ginger takes this into the realm of elixir. Loved it and will be making it again, and again.

This sounds so great, Winnie! I so wish I had a juicer!! We've been buying the Naked stuff from Costco - really good, but I bet yours is wayyyy better.

Fresh juice is definitely way better. You need a juicer, my friend.

SO great! 2 years ago my husband was getting ready to have major back surgery (he's doing fine, thanks) and we bought a juicer and made variations of this all the time. Carrot-apple-ginger is my favorite, and the meyer lemon makes it even better.

Sometimes I add beet, too...I made this today so I could take the photo but it had been a while since I had one. While I was drinking it, I was seriously asking myself why I don't make it every day? It's so good.

I know! I add beet, too, sometimes. Our juicer is still on the counter, but I haven't used it in ages. Thanks for the inspiration.

I felt a little guilty submitting this as a recipe, but it's honestly my favorite way to have carrots :)
