This is a delicious juice my husband and I make for breakfast or an after-meal dessert when guests are over. It's not only delicious, but will perk up any bad day with a boost of vitamins and nutrients that you may otherwise skip out on. I hope you try it, and enjoy! Recipe makes 2 tall glasses or 4 smaller glasses of juice. You need a blender.

I enjoyed this the carrot was the star. But I think the recipe might be improved with an addition of a stalk of celery and a bite of either ginger or a dash of cayenne pepper. Overall its a recipe I would repeat. Read More

I was looking for a juicer recipe to fit produce Inhave in the house and happened upon this one. I used the ingredients listed including the lemon but without the sugar or water since I sent them through the juicer instead. A mild a very refreshing combination! I will use it again and if I want more of a bite I am sure a little fresh ginger will work in it also. Thank you for sharing this! Read More
