Healthy Recipes: Yummy Sweet Carrotylicious Juice! #ad @BrevilleCanada

Disclosure: Breville Canada has supplied me with a Juice Fountain Cold XL to help with my health journey. All opinions are my own.

In my ongoing journey to a healthier lifestyle, I have been creating different combinations of fruits and vegetables to juice. It really has been hit or miss… some combinations work better than others. I have found some great combinations, and this is one of them. I call it Sweet Carrotylicious. It is heathy, and it tastes good. With carrots as the main ingredient, I added a coupe of tomatoes, an English cucumber, 2 Granny Smith apples, and 2 Bartlett pears. The apples and pears give it a nice sweet taste.

The joy of juicing is that you can always take a recipe, add another fruit or veggie, or take something out you don’t like. There really is no rule as to what has to be in there. I added the pear because I had them, and the juice turned out delicious!

You can add whatever fruits and vegetables you like. If you want to spice it up, add herbs and spices. There is a comprehensive food prep guide over at rebootwithjoe.com that will help you know what needs to be done with the produce you choose before juicing.

Sweet Carrotylicious ingredients

Sweet Carrotylicious

Ingredients:

• 1 x 2lb bag of carrots
• 2 x tomatoes
• 2 x Granny Smith apples
• 1 x English cucumber
• 2 x Bartlett pears

Preparation:

1. Cut the ends off the carrots. Wash them thoroughly. Cut them in half (lengthwise).
2. Wash the tomatoes, and cut the top out of them. Cut into 4.
3. Remove stem. Wash and core the apples. Cut into 4.
4. Wash the cucumber, and cut it into 4 (lengthwise). No need to peel.
5. Remove stem. Wash and core the pears. Cut into 4.
6. Put cut pieces through juicer. Harder items will need a higher speed.

Once you have juiced all of your items, stir the juice with a long spoon until it is all mixed together. Refrigerate for a couple of hours. I like my juices cold. Remove from refrigerator and enjoy!

But What About The Fibre?

With juicing, the pulp and fibre that is left in the chamber is often thrown out or composted. Don’t throw it away! The pulp and fibre makes for a great soup base. Cut up some potatoes and celery, add it to the pulp with some water and spices, and you have yourself the start of a tasty and healthy Sweet Carrotylicious soup.

Well, I hope you enjoy making this Sweet Carrotylicious juice. If you do make it, let me know how you like it.

Cheers,
Big Daddy
