the apple carrot juice

i made this juice a few times over the summer, but i hadn't touched my juice machine in about two months. however, thanks to maggie at dog hill kitchen, i'm now the proud owner of everyday raw by matthew kenny. thanks maggie! - go check out her blog here.
as i was saying, i was re-inspired to make juice. although this recipe is not in his book per se, i'm posting it because it was one of my first juice experiments (note the super-simplicity), and because i'm excited to try out some new raw recipes!

  • 4 granny smith apples, cored
  • 3 carrots, peeled
core and chop up the apples to fit in your juice machine, then stick the carrots through.

as you can probably tell by my recipes, i don't like things that are super-sweet. i love using granny smith's for their tartness, but feel free to substitute your favourite apple.

Your juice looks wonderful....tempting me to get a juicer :-)

I'm so glad the cookbook got there ok! I really want to buy a Vitamix so I can make fruit and vegetable juices but I swore I wouldn't until the move. I really like greens (kale, spinach, etc) in fresh juice.

What kind of juicer do you have?

actually, i just use a juice extractor. it prevents me from making really complicated juices, but it serves my needs until i get a real juice machine. the holidays are approaching! ;)
