- 1 cup (180 g) carrots
- 1 cup (240 ml) filtered water
- 1 medium ripe banana, sliced and frozen
- 1 cup frozen or fresh apple
- 1/2 Tbsp fresh ginger (1 small knob, peeled, sliced)
- 1/2 Tsp turmeric
- 1/2 cup (120 ml) carrot juice
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 cup unsweetened cashew nut milk
- To make the carrot juice, add the carrots and the filtered water to a powerful high-speed blender and let it blend until on high until completely pureed and smooth. Add more water if it is too thick and has trouble blending. Scrape down the sides as needed.
- Drape a large, thin dish towel over a mixing bowl and pour over the juice. Then lift up on the corners of the towel and begin twisting and squeezing the juice out until all of the liquid is extracted. Set aside pulp for smoothies, or baked goods (such as carrot muffins).
- Transfer carrot juice to a mason jar - It should be good for several days.
