Carrot apple juice. Yeah! I’ve been juicing carrots and apples as a Saturday morning ritual, I’ve also been playing around with this conventional-easy-to-make carrot apple juice and made a twist to it. This version’s got tiny bit of lime kick and the fragrance of mint kick in it, which makes it that much refreshing to savor. Oh, not to mention a bit of yogurt to make the consistency thicker.
I think the lime and mint ideas were from trying out so many myNewRoots recipe (they are all so delicious and health conscious) and realized lime gives such a warm taste in everything! The yogurt idea was from trying out juices in the local market in Taipei, Taiwan that I fell in love with a thicker consistency for juices.
This juice is so easy to make, wash your ingredients and throw them into the juicer –literally like a TADA in 20 seconds!
Ingredients (Servings for 2):
6 medium size carrots
10 small apples or 5 medium size apples
1/3 of a lime
5-7 leaves of fresh mint leaves to garnish
1 small bottle of yogurt
200g of non-flavored yogurt
1 Tbsp of honey or maple syrup
- Wash and rinse the apples and carrots, put them into the juicer. (Best if you can already take them out of the fridge 2 hours before so they aren’t too cold)
- Pour them into glasses.
- Squeeze about 6 – 8 drops of lime juice in it.
- Add 100g of yogurt in the juice, mix with a tablespoon.
- Sliced the mint leaves or leave them on top to garnish. If you used green apples, some honey or maple syrup will sweetened it up. Savor immediately because of the enzymes. Enjoy your unconventional apple carrot juice!
With lots of love,
