In the world of vibrant, cold-pressed fruit juice recipes that live on this blog, you’ll find everything from classic apple juice, blueberry juice, and strawberry juice to the exotic allure of sea buckthorn juice. 

Today, I’m thrilled to introduce a new addition: this carrot apple ginger juice recipe.

While store-bought varieties offer convenience, why settle when you can craft your own homemade carrot apple ginger juice and avoid the preservatives and added sugars found in many commercial varieties?

The best part?

You don’t need to spend a small fortune on an expensive electric juicer.

With a reliable food processor or a high-powered blender like the Ninja Foodie, Vitamix, or NutriBullet, you can easily extract the goodness from carrots, apples, and ginger from the comfort of your kitchen!

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

Here are three reasons why this recipe is a keeper:

  • The nutritional benefits. This juice contains many of the same nutritional qualities as the fresh ingredients –making it as close to consuming raw, whole carrots, apples, and fresh ginger as it gets.
  • You don’t need a fancy fruit juicer. You can use an electric fruit juicer if you have one. If not, the blender method works great for small batches.
  • Pure, cold-pressed fruit and veggies. While pre-bottled juices may be convenient, they often lack the vibrant flavors and nutritional punch you get from making your own.

Ingredient Notes

Here is everything you’ll need to make this fresh juice:

Here is a short overview of the ingredients:

  • Carrots – The juice extracted from fresh carrots is an excellent source of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, particularly vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene. I find organic, deep orange-colored carrots are typically sweeter and have a richer flavor. However, the most important thing is to use fresh, crisp carrots free from discoloration or wilting.
  • Apple – For the best results, select an apple with only the natural protective layer of wax on the skin. If the apples have a waxed surface, consider peeling the skin before juicing it. As for the best types of apples for juicing, go with Pink Lady, Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Golden Delicious, and Empire, or select one from this list of Best Juicing Apples.
  • Ginger – Ginger boasts potential health benefits, such as aiding digestion, reducing inflammation, and boosting the immune system. But don’t add too much ginger, as it can make the juice too spicy. A 1-inch piece of fresh ginger is just enough to impart a vibrant, pleasantly spicy kick.
  • Water – Blending everything with cold water makes it easier to strain the pureed fruit and veggie mixture and remove the pulp. Filtered water is best here as it doesn’t leave behind the flavor impurities tap and bottled water may have.

How to Make Carrot Apple Ginger Juice

You can make this apple carrot ginger juice in a juicer if you have one. Otherwise, follow these simple step-by-step instructions to make it in a blender or food processor:

Step 1: Prep the ingredients for juicing.

Wash the apple and carrot thoroughly. Trim the ends from the carrots and cut them into 0.5-inch pieces. Core the apple and roughly chop it. Peel the ginger. Then, place everything in your food processor or high-power blender.

Step 2: Puree the ingredients.

Add water, then give everything a few quick pulses before increasing the speed and processing until smooth.

Step 3: Strain the juice.

Place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl. Transfer the pureed mixture to the strainer and press it with a rubber spatula to separate the juice from the pulp. Alternatively, you can use a nut milk bag. Work in batches if needed.

Recipe Tips

Here are a few helpful hacks to ensure you make the best homemade juice:

  • You can adjust ingredient ratios to your taste by modifying the quantity of carrots, apples, and ginger. More ginger will give it a spicier kick, while more apples can add sweetness.
  • Use organic produce if possible.
  • Be sure to thoroughly remove the core and seeds from the apple to avoid any bitterness.
  • If the taste of the juice is too strong, you can dilute it by stirring in a little bit of water.

Variations

Now that you’ve mastered the art of making freshly squeezed carrot ginger apple juice consider unleashing your creativity with fun flavor variations:

  • Add fresh citrus – Add a splash of freshly squeezed citrus juice, like lemon, lime, or orange juice, to brighten the flavor.
  • Add more fruit – Consider puréeing the ingredients with an extra fruit variety, such as mango, pineapple, papaya, guava, or passionfruit.
  • Add warming spices – Spice things up with a dash of cinnamon or a pinch of turmeric for a warm, cozy flavor.
  • Make it thick and creamy – Try blending in banana, Greek yogurt, or coconut cream to create a more substantial, smoothie-like consistency.

Storing & Freezing

Storing: If you have leftovers, store the juice in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours, but it’s best enjoyed fresh.

Freezing: To extend the shelf-life, freeze extra juice in an ice cube tray, then transfer the cubes to a zip-top bag and keep it in the freezer for up to 3 months. I like using the cubes to chill future cold-pressed fruit juice concoctions because they don’t water down the flavor.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few related questions about making your own juice:

Do carrots, apples, and ginger go well together?

Yes, this trio of fresh ingredients creates a delicious and well-balanced flavor.

The sweetness of the apples complements the earthy and slightly sweet and spicy notes of the carrots and ginger, resulting in a flavorful, refreshing, and nutrient-packed beverage.

Can I just use an electric fruit juicer?

Yes! If you have a good quality juicer, by all means, use it! Otherwise, following the recipe as written using a reliable food processor or blender will do the trick.
