Carrot Apple and Celery Juice

Carrot-Apple-and-Celery-JuiceThere are good things and bad things that can happen if you let your children help make the daily juice – at least at my house with my boys.

The good…all I have to do is cut and prep the veggies and then move on to another task – my boys actually “make” the juice.

The bad…they fight over who gets to operate the juicer – every time.

Tears and pouting ensue.

After about 10 minutes of negotiating amongst themselves, they eventually work it out and we all enjoy a fresh glass of juice.

And amazingly, they instantly become best friends again lol.

This is one of my more “kid-friendly” juices because it doesn’t really have the greens and other detoxifying things I usually add to mine like cilantro, dandelion leaves, kale stems, asparagus, etc.

We recently upgraded our juicer and the one we are currently using in our home is the Omega J8005 masticating juicer and we’ve been very pleased with it.

Tip #1:  If you are new to juicing or want to save money juicing, you can get the big bags of organic juicing carrots from Whole Foods.  They come in 5 pound bags ($4.89) and 15 pound bags ($16.99).  Depending on how much and how frequent you will use them, you may do better price-wise getting a couple of the 5 pound bags.

Tip #2:  This recipe is for 1 serving.  Just adjust the quantities for the number of servings you need.

  • My boyfriend just picked up a juicer, so thank you for your recipe. Just an observation, are those prices at Whole Foods accurate? 5lb/$4.89 works out to 97.8 cents/pound, whereas 15lb/$16.99 works out to $1.13/lb. Seems a little crazy to pay more for the larger quantity.

      Hi there Rosemary! Yay for getting a new juicer! Lately, I’ve been buying either the 2 lb or 5 lb bags and as of 5/18/14 (the last time I bought a bag), the 5 lb bag is still $4.89 so it’s probably cheaper to get the smaller bags, which usually not the case when buying in bulk.

      I like the smaller bags now because they take up less space in the refrigerator (which I don’t have a lot of to spare as it is) and I grocery shop once a week so the 5 lb bag has been lasting us right at a week and I just get a new bag each week.

      If I shopped every two weeks or longer or increased our current carrot consumption, I would probably get the 15 lb bag even though it’s a little bit more.

      I guess it’s good they offer different sized bags since everyone’s needs are different, but you’re right, the bigger bags should be cheaper than the smaller ones.

      Thanks for your question and I hope you enjoy your new juicer ;)
