Immunity Boosting Carrot-Ginger Juice

With flu season in full swing, we could probably all use a little immunity boost right about now.

That’s where this tasty juice comes in.

Carrot juice is a nutritional powerhouse! Loaded with vitamin A and beta carotene, carrot juice is a great source of anti-oxidants, and is also thought to cleanse and restore the liver. In fact, the unique synergy of its enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and flavonoids is thought to create a “magical remedy” when juiced. [source]

Paired with the leafy green romaine lettuce, spicy ginger, seasonal clementines, and a splash of fresh lemon juice, this juice is not only bursting with flavor, but also with a hefty dose of vitamin C and folate. I like to think of it as a delicious multivitamin, without any synthetic vitamins or fillers!

serves 1

Ingredients:

5 large carrots
1 romaine heart
2 clementines, peeled
1/2 lemon, peeled
1-inch knob of fresh ginger

Directions:

Run all of the ingredients through a juicer, and drink immediately! For best results, use a masticating juicer, like this Omega model, which handles leafy greens and delicate items, such as ginger and clementines, effortlessly.

As always, feel free to adjust any ingredients to suit your personal tastes. If you’d like a sweeter juice, try adding a few more carrots, or a couple drops of liquid stevia, to taste.

Enjoy and stay well!

    Love that picture…so vibrant!

    I have been searching for a stevia sweetened “syrup” to replace honey/maple syrup/agave/coconut nectar in recipes. Do you have any idea how to make this?

    Thanks!!!

  • HCT

    This combo sounds amazing. I’ll have to try it! Thanks, as always, for sharing. I have the same juicer and it’s excellent. I like anything with ginger and lime – it makes the greens taste tropical.

  • I wish I could say I’d try this – I really dislike the flavor of ginger. I can’t even eat the ginger with sushi. About as far as I can get is to drink ginger ale.

    My favorite juice is anything with beet! When I first started juicing beets, I would get incredibly nauseated – and my nutritionist told me that it is because beets are very cleansing for the liver! So I use it every few days rather than daily :)

      Red deception, don’t put the the ginger in at all. Make the drink with all the ingredients except the ginger. I personally love, love cumin so I’m going to use that one. Experiment by taking a 1/2 glass of the juice mix and add another spice you might like. I discovered this when I started making smoothies, using the internet to find fruits and vegetable that pair well then adding the spices that I like, otherwise abandoning the process would surely have happened and I have had such a surge in energy and weight loss so quitting is not an option. Good luck!

  • my favorite juice combo depends on if i am craving a mega green juice or a sweeter one. my go-to usually contains a metric ton of parsley, romaine, cuke, lemon & celery. i also love a nice carrot-ginger-beet juice when i want to mix it up!

  • Rachel T

    I saw a video where you make juice by blitzing everything in a blender (Vitamix) and then strain it through a nut milk bag – have you ever tried anything like that?

    • Sara

      Hi Rachel,

      I’ve actually been making juice with my Vitamix for a few months now and it works really well. The juice tastes good to me and it saved me from having to buy another appliance just yet. I just add a bit of water along with the other ingredients to help everything blend easier.

    • Yes, I’ve made juice with my blender, too! I used my old nut milk bag to strain– but beware, it may permanently stain whatever you use for straining! I now have a green-colored bag. :)

  • Oh that sounds wonderful! As I’m typing I’m actually drinking a carrot/cucumber/mandarin orange and it’s quite tasty!

  • i have soo many carrots ! thanks for this recipe it looks great ! ill have to make it now :)

    just wanted to let you know i added your food combining chart to one of my blog posts:

    YUm, thank you for this, I just made it and it is so delicious and refreshing. I am so stuck on my green juice, its nice to change it up!

  • i love a good carrot ginger juice! This morning I made a different concoction in my juicer. 1 sweet potato, 3 carrots, 1 apple, and cinnamon. IT was AMAZING!!!

  • This sounds like a delicious combo! I am dreadfully boring when it comes to my juice. I always stick to apple, ginger, lemon, kale, cucs, because I know it works! But this is inspiring me to branch out!

  • Hi:
    I enjoy your website and find some interesting things. I know that this is off topic regarding this post on carrot juice, but Ive been meaning to ask you why you use peanut butter in many of your recipes. My naturopath told me that it was a dirty, fungus-laden food, even the organic stuff is not good for people. What are your thoughts on that?
    Thanks,
    Maria

    • Hi Maria!

      I actually agree with your naturopath– I don’t believe that peanut butter is a “health food,” and I personally use almond butter instead of peanut butter, in most cases. However, my husband LOVES peanut butter, and I have a few friends with nut allergies, so I do still work with peanut butter on occasion. Also, I would consider peanut butter to be a fine transition food if you’re coming off of a traditional mainstream diet. A flourless peanut butter cookie, or peanut butter banana milkshake, is still better than many processed snacks that are out there!

      You can always substitute almond butter in any of my peanut butter recipes, for a delicious result!

  • lauri

    my husband loaned out our juicer(we weren’t using it at the time)and I’m left with only a blender type item. It makes a great smoothie, considering it emulsifies everything, but the consistency with carrots isn’t pleasant. Do you have any suggestions? Would it work if I just used less carrots and added water? I’m working on healthy eating..but still clueless.

  • Amber

    This juice was delicious and refreshing! I am a new follower to your site but I am hooked! Thanks so much!

  • Mmmmm, yes this sounds awesome!! I have a 10 pound bag of organic carrots from costco that I need to get through. This sounds perfect!!

  • I made this last night and it’s WONDERFUL! I also made a version with a bunch of beets and parsley in place of the clementines and romaine. Quite good too. (Beets = red hands) I’m very ill and just started juicing this week in a new/different direction and effort to find my way to “not dying.” Thanks for all your info and ideas!

  • Inez

    How long will the juice sty fresh when I juice I make a coup,e of mason jars what in your opinion is the expire after juicing it?

    • Megan

      It depends on the type of juicer you use. Juice made in a centrifugal juicer should be consumed within 15-20 minutes, but if you have a masticating juicer, it can be stored for 48-72 hours in a well sealed container in the fridge.

  • T.

    Apple carrot ginger is my absolute FAV, however pineapple, cranberry, lime is my second. When making the pineapple blend, I use fresh cranberries and only a splash of lime because the lime juice can overpower the rest. I recently blended beets, fresh picked apples, carrots, kiwi, kale and ginger for an AWESOME power packed blend! Enjoy!
