Spring Carrot Juice is a nutritious, tasty, and cost effective juice that is not only healthy but affordable. It tastes refreshing with sweetness from apples and a zip from the ginger. Additionally, the ingredients take minimal prep with only a wash and a chop to ensure everything will fit nicely in the juicer.
Best juice to make when keeping to a budget.
The cost of a typical carrot juice at a juicer bar can run you between $5.00-$9.00 per drink. The cost of a pre-packaged juice from the grocery store is usually between $3.00-$6.00. Additionally, anything pre-packaged will never taste as great as a freshly made drink. You are also adding in additional preservatives and likey tons of single use plastics. Contrasty, making this juice from bulk ingredients will allow you to enjoy fresh juice at a much less expensive price per drink. Below is an example of my Spring Carrot Juice grocery bill. If you divide the ingredients up the amount per drink comes out to $$$$$.
Spring Carrot Juice from Staple Ingredients
All of the ingredients are kitchen staples. The main star of this juice are carrots. In addition, even organic carrots are one of the cheapest of all the vegetables options. Secondly, the next ingredient is apples. They keep for a long time in the fridge and can be use in deserts, main dishes, breakfast items, or as a snack. For this reason alone, it is best to buy in bulk. Finally, the last ingredient is ginger. Only a small amount will suffice as it packs a flavor punch.
Usually there are enough ingredients left over to make at least two batches of juice per week. I recommend drinking the juice within three days for maximum freshness.
