Carrot and Cilantro Juice

Carrot and Cilantro Juice

I am surrounded by germs at the moment. Between my office and home, almost everyone is sick. I felt a little under the weather for several days, but so far I’ve been able to ward it off.  I’m definitely convinced that my strengthened immunity is due to all the fresh juices I’ve been drinking!

For this week’s SPUD juicing box I opted for the Organic Dynamic Beauty Juicing Box, which is a beautiful combination of apples, beets, carrots, celery, chard, cilantro, cucumber, ginger, kale, lemons, green bell peppers, and spearmint. This was the first box that I tried from SPUD and I love all the different flavor combinations you can make with these juices. 

This week I’ve been playing around with lots of carrot-based juices. If you are new to juicing, I definitely recommend starting with a carrot-based juice because it will be incredibly sweet, even without the addition of fruit! Some of my favorite combinations from this week’s produce box include: 

  • 5 carrots, 3 kale leaves, and 1/2-inch piece of fresh ginger
  • 3 carrots, 2 beets, 1/4 apple, and 1/2-inch piece of fresh ginger
  • 3 carrots, 3 celery stalks, 3 chard leaves, and small handful of mint
  • 3 carrots, 1/2 cucumber, and small handful of mint
And, of course, this carrot cilantro juice.

This juice is a sweet and zesty mix between the carrots, bell pepper, and cilantro.  I also love adding a lemon for a nice tartness and even more alkalizing power.  For an additional immune boost (and to ward off vampires), try sneaking in a garlic clove or two!

I looove cilantro so I actually added quite a big handful to my juice. If cilantro’s not your thing, you can either leave it out or substitute with a different fresh herb like parsley. Drink up!
