Pear Apple Zinger

I usually try to incorporate veggies into my juices, but every once in a while I just want a sweet liquid treat. The lemon in this juice keeps things from getting too sweet, while ginger gives it a little zing. And this one is 7-year-old, blond-pig-tailed, UW-fan-approved, as you’ll see below. I enlisted the help of one my favorite little friends for this post. Happy juicing! M Pear Apple Zinger Single Serving Ready in: 5 min Ingredients: 1 pear 1-inch piece ginger 1/2 apple 1/2 lemon Directions: Slice the rind off the lemon, and cut up fruit into pieces that fit the juicer tube. Juice it up. And put some muscle into it like my little friend. Check out the guns on that girl! 😉 Pour and enjoy! (By the way, how about that juice foam? I usually am not a fan, but with this one I think it looks really pretty!)

Pineapple-Ginger Elixir

I used to order something similar to this from a juice bar in Seattle all the time—often enough that I was able to guestimate on the ingredients so I could make it at home, too. This juice is really delicious, but is especially great when you feel like you’re coming down with a cold or flu. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it will cure you, but it’ll definitely take the edge off. I always feel better after I have a glassful. Be warned, this one is a little on the sweet side. For that reason, I use a whole lemon to give it a good balance of tartness, as well as a big piece of ginger. (I like to feel the burn when I’m a little under the weather.) If you can handle the ginger, do it—it’s great for you. But if not, do about half the amount. It’s still good for you, regardless of the dose size. Enjoy!

Carrot-Ginger Zinger

I end up sipping on this juice at least a few times a week as part of an afternoon snack—it’s one of my favorites. The ginger adds a little zing to the sweetness of the carrots, and the lemon tarts it up just a hint. This is a really good one for satisfying a sugar craving—it’ll knock that bothersomeness right outta there. Okay, juice it up. M Carrot-Ginger Zinger Single Serving, Juice | Vegan, Gluten-Free Ready in: 5 min Ingredients: 6-7 carrots 1/2 lemon, peel sliced off 1/2-inch piece of ginger 1/2 apple Directions: Send it all through a juicer, and you’re good to go! TIP: Sandwich the piece of ginger between the other bigger pieces of produce when you load everything in the juicer shoot so it doesn’t end up bouncing around in there by itself. Bottoms up, healthy people!
