A vibrant orange juice made without a juicer! Vitamin C-rich carrots, oranges, lemon, ginger, apple and nectarines create this hydrating, refreshing juice packed with vitamins and minerals!
Recipe type: Beverage
Cuisine: Vegan, Gluten-Free
Serves: ~2 1/2 cups
  • 1/2 orange, juiced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 nectarine, pit removed
  • 1 apple, cored and quartered
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, peeled
  • 4-6 whole carrots, peeled/tops removed
  • optional: 3-4 sprigs mint
  • 1-2 cups (240-480 ml) filtered water
  1. If using a juicer, add all ingredients to the juicer and press. Otherwise, squeeze orange and lemon juice into a blender as the pulp can make the juicing process more difficult.
  2. Next add nectarine, apple, ginger, carrots, and mint (optional). Top with 1-2 cups filtered water, cover and blend until combined. You don't want your blender to get the juice too hot in temperature so be careful not to over-blend - it shouldn't take more than 30 seconds.
  3. Drape a clean, thin towel over a large mixing bowl and carefully pour over the juice and pulp. Then gather the corners and begin extracting the juice, leaving the pulp behind. Continue squeezing until all juice is extracted. You can either compost the pulp or add it to baked goods!
  4. Enjoy the juice fresh. Cover and refrigerate leftovers for 2-3 days, though best in the first 12-24 hours for mineral and vitamin content.
*Use organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible.
*To reduce sugar content, leave out 1-2 of the fruits (such as nectarine and apple).
*Nutrition information is a rough estimate for one 1/2-cup serving of 5 total servings. The recipe yields about 2 1/2 cups juice.
