We are finally having some sunny days – the snow is melting – our spirits are lifting. I finally got my seed started indoors (more on that in coming weeks) and I wanted to come up with an equally uplifting juice blend. Sunshine juice fits the bill.
With the change in season I am feeling a renewed enthusiasm for juicing. It is also the easiest way to get Spence to ingest some veggies these days. Sunshine juice is made up of all yellow and orange fruits and vegetables.
As with all the juices I make, I am shooting for 5 cups. 1.5 cup servings for Em and I and 1 cups servings for Norah and Spencer.
Sunshine Juice is comprised of 4 large carrots, 1 small golden beet, 4 oranges, 2 apples, and a small piece of ginger. No more then a teaspoon sized piece of unpeeled ginger for us or it is to overpowering.
The oranges are the only things that get peeled. The rest of them get washed and chopped into large chunks.
Then process through the juicer. I am still using my Hamilton Beach juicer I got for $60 14 months ago. Despite being one of the least expensive juicers I have used it almost daily for well over a year with no issues and it is still going strong.
Once processed I give it a good stir then pour into glasses over a couple ice cubes – we like our juice cold.
That is all there is to it. This is the only way I could ever get beets into Spencer without a force feeding situation but hopefully it will develop his taste for them later in life! For other juice recipes try Pineapple Breakfast Juice and Pineapple Lemon Juice.
