It seems like everyone is juicing lately. I have to admit, I’ve been on a couple of juice cleanses and I absolutely hated it. Let’s be real, ya’ll. No green juice is ever better than a real bacon and egg breakfast. And to be honest, I feel better eating high protein, low carb instead of the other way around.
But George loves apple juice. He is such a little kid sometimes. And I do worry about the boy’s sugar intake. I can be a real mom sometimes. So, I was looking for a way to make a healthier, lower sugar, apple juice. Here’s what I came up with:
- 2 Granny Smith apples
- 1/2 inch of fresh ginger
- 1/2 cup of cranberry juice (no sugar added)
I don’t have a juicer, so I made this one in my blender. It works well, but it would be smoother if you choose to make it in a juicer.
Peel, core and cut the apples into bite-size chunks. Peel and cut up the ginger. Add the cranberry juice to the blender first, then add the apples and the ginger. Blend until smooth and pour over ice. Enjoy!
Tart and gingery! Have you ever tried a juice cleanse? Do you think it lives up to the hype?
