Fresh, Energizing, & Delicious…
Orange Carrot Ginger Juice is naturally packed with vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients. This beautifully bright blended, beverage has been a favorite in our household for literally, years.
I made this recipe up one day, on a whim several years ago. It was after experiencing the delight of fresh cold pressed juices along with the shock of their insanely HIGH price tags. The average fresh cold pressed juice start at $8 a pop. (yikes!)
With this recipe you can save yourself the money and keep the pulp (aka fiber) that most juice spots deny you of. It’s also wildly easy to make and highly satisfying. This powerful juice also helps boost your immune system all year long!

Orange juice is famous for it super high in antioxidants and micronutrients like vitamin C, folate, and potassium. It has several known health benefits, from decreasing inflammation, improving heart health and even a reducing risk of kidney stones.
The Ginger is by far the most beneficial ingredient in this recipe! It’s high in a substance called “Gingerol”(yes thats a real word). This Gingerol has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Ginger can help prevent nausea and speeds up the emptying of the stomach, helping with indigestion and stomach discomfort. It can help lower blood sugar levels and improve various heart disease risk factors in people with type 2 diabetes. Ginger may also help fight harmful bacteria and viruses, which reduces your risk for infections.
