we really love juicing fresh produce and we juice as often as we can, so we were heartbroken when our old trusty juicer (which we inherited from my mom) decided it had seen the end of its juicing days.
we scoured the depths of the internet searching for a new juicer, and after reading a million product reviews we finally settled on a breville juice fountain plus. we've had it for a few weeks now and we completely love it!
we put some of our fresh produce from the farmers market to use over the weekend and made a great juice with carrots, apples, ginger, cucumbers, and kale. it's full of nutrients and it tastes great!
carrot, apple, ginger, cucumber, and kale juice
prep time: 5 minutes
yields: approximately 5 cups
4 mcintosh apples
1 inch piece of fresh ginger root
6 kale stalks
wash the produce and peel a 1 inch piece of fresh ginger root. run the produce through a juicer (most juicers work best if you start with the hardest fruit/veggie first and work your way down to the softest). chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
