When my husband tasted this juice for the first time, he named it “Orient Express.” We both laughed because it was perfect. Plus, it reminded me of a roller coaster I used to ride at Worlds of Fun when I was younger.
Fresh ginger root, which is widely used in Asian cooking, is what makes this recipe. Ginger has a variety of health benefits: soothes gastrointestinal distress, contains potent anti-inflammatory properties, reduces motion sickness, and alleviates nausea. Fresh ginger root can be found in the produce section of the supermarket and should be stored in your refrigerator, where it will keep for up to three weeks if left unpeeled.
3 carrots, unpeeled and tops removed
2 large apples, unpeeled and cut into slices (discard cores)
1 (1-inch) slice of ginger root, unpeeled
Yield: 2 servings (serving size: 8 ounces or 1 cup)
