Carrot & Turmeric Tonic

January has arrived. Can you believe the holidays are already over? After indulging (read: overindulging) at family feasts and holiday parties over the past month, I’m excited to get back on track in the kitchen. That all starts with my juicer.

In January, my juicer takes it’s rightful place on my kitchen counter and reminds me that I shouldn’t only be eating my fruits and vegetables but also drinking them.

Carrot and turmeric tonic is a great recipe to get you started juicing in the New Year. It’s simple, tasty, and beautiful. I know plenty of people who are a little hesitant (frightened, frankly) by green juice. This juice looks a little more familiar, like the orange or carrot juice you might already have in the fridge.

We juiced one golden delicious apple (the entire apple fits in the big mouth of our Premium Big Mouth® 2 Speed Juice Extractor, cha-ching), a piece of turmeric, a piece of ginger, lemon, 4 large carrots, and a cucumber. Together, these ingredients make one bright, flavorful juice. The sweet apples and carrots pair well with the tangy lemon and refreshing cucumber. The ginger adds a little spice while the turmeric adds, color and health benefits – it is reported to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Put down the mulled cider, hot chocolate, and holiday cocktails and start juicing this January. Move over OJ, there’s a new orange juice in town.
