Rainbow juice

April 20, 2012

Hooray for weekends! And for fresh juice!

These pictures are from a few weeks ago, but I definitely plan to make this juice part of my weekend. This is our go-to juice, which can be adapted depending on what you have on hand.

Rainbow Juice

All quantities are approximate, and you can add or take away practically anything you want.

6 large carrots

3 apples

4 pears

1/2 lemon

thumb-sized chunk of ginger

Optional extras: celery, grapes, red or yellow bell pepper

Wash fruits and vegetables, chop if necessary, then juice! One of the best things about our juicer is that you don’t have to peel or chop anything except to get it to the quantity you want (e.g., half a lemon), but I do find it works better if I cut the apples in half.

Tip: If you put a plastic bag in the part of the juicer that collects all of the solid fruit and vegetable left-overs, it makes it far easier to clean up when you finish.

And it is as delicious as it is beautiful.

I am hoping to write a post very soon with some new baking recipes, as I have been very inspired by an allergy-friendly baking cookbook which I received two days ago from my mom, my aunt, and my grandma. What a wonderful surprise! Thank you!

Have a great weekend everyone. 🙂


IBS Note: Some fruits and vegetables can be hard on my stomach in their whole, raw form. However, so far, I have never had a problem with any of the juices we have made. It seems to be easier to digest foods in liquid form but you still get the vitamins and the taste.

    Hi Emily!! We have a rubbish little electric lemon juicer which i’ve used to make orange juice, and i’ve blended some fruits in the blender to make smoothie type things, but I like the sound of what you have above. What make/model is your juicer and do you mind me asking what kind of price I’d be looking at?

      Hi Donna,

      Sorry for not replying sooner. I think it makes a huge difference having a good juicer. It is enough work even with ours, and we don’t actually have to chop up, peel, or do much of anything with the fruit. Our juicer is the Phillips HR 1861 Aluminium Whole Fruit Juicer. I just had a look on, and it is currently priced at £95, but I kept an eye out on Amazon for a little while and shopped around, and I think I paid more like £70 for ours. And that was a couple of years ago now, so I would think there would be even better deals out there if you do some searching and perhaps wait until there is a special offer.

      Hope you are having a nice weekend!
