Last time I was in Portland, I finally got to stop at a juice truck that I’ve been dying to try for ages. Their smoothies and green juices were originally what I was super excited about, but being that it was October and blustery and rainy, I decided to try a hot juice to boost immunity. I didn’t fully anticipate two things: 1) Hot juice is delicious. Duh, apple cider…don’t know why I never made that connection; and 2) garlic is not something I enjoy in juice. That said, I did buck a nasty cold going around, so maybe it all worked out. Either way, I’ve been drinking hot juices of varying combinations for a few months and found myself headed back to Portland this afternoon to see some of my best friends. It just seemed right to post my favsie warm juice concoction.
In your juicer, combine:
2 large carrots
2 regular or 3 small apples
1 handful of parsley (Italian parsley was what I had)
A generous cut of ginger (I used about 2 inches)
After juicing, place on stove in small saucepan, heat until just before boiling (if you do let it boil, it gets really, really foamy. Too foamy). Once warm, remove from heat, drink and enjoy the spicy zing!
