Warming apple-carrot juice


My family has a garden with many very old apple trees with the best and juiciest apples. Every year I am looking forward to the moment when they are ripe. Eating your own apples is simply the best thing. Apples are probably the fruit we are eating the most. And aren't they just delicious? As a child I was already told the saying "One apple a day keeps the doctor away" and I am sure many of you know this one! I am sure there is lots of truth behind it, as apples contain so many vitamins and minerals.

So, every September when the trees in our garden are full of apples, the whole family takes one day off for collecting apples. We store them in the cellar in order to have enough over the winter. We make apple cake, apple sauce and of course apple juice! This year we got 500 liter of apple juice from our apples! So you might wonder what to do with all of that apple juice! Good friends got some apple juice and we throughout the winter. It's a completely natural and non-filtered apple juice. Mixed with water it’s so delicious!

But there are also other ways how to drink it, and I would like to present you a recipe for a juice which is wonderful on a cold winter day.

Have you ever tried apple juice and carrot juice? If not you should go and do it right now, because it is amazing! When my brother was ill I made that for him and I am sure it made him get well again much sooner ... but anyway, it is really a immunity system boosting drink!

It is warm, comforting, a little spicy but still fresh! Herbs in a juice are a thing I learned to love and ginger is my essential in every winter!

As I have no juicer, I bought organic, natural carrot juice, but juicing the carrots is probably a wonderful option as well.

What a yummy juice!
