I caved. I caved and I got a juicer, after my protests of “I really like smoothies, I don’t need a juicer in my life” and “why would I buy a juicer when I could just buy the juices?”
I’ll tell you why, Grace of the past, because juicers are freakin’ great. I was spending an unholy amount of money on ready made green juices when I could’ve just been making them myself all along. Also, I’ve totally souped-up my old favourite – carrot and ginger juice.
There was a mango and an orange hanging about when I went to make my carrot and ginger juice and I thought, why not throw them in too? It was a good decision. The added orange yields a whole lot more juice than carrots alone, and the mango adds a touch of tropical sweetness; all coming together to make the most vivid, refreshing and satisfyingly frothy juice you could imagine.
- 1 mango
- 1 orange
- 2 inch piece of ginger
- 4 large carrots
- Remove the skin of the mango, orange and ginger and chop off the ends of the carrots.
- Juice and enjoy.
