Got a juicer? It’s a great kitchen tool! We love smoothies from the blender and juices from the juicer, too — they’re different approaches to getting more fresh fruits and veggies (with their vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and soluble fiber) into your diet, and both can be healthy and delicious.
These juice combos from Earthbound’s own Chef Sarah LaCasse are some of our favorites. Each makes about two 4-ounce servings.
Chef Sarah’s juicing tips:
For example, 3 medium apples will yield almost 11 oz of juice; 2 large beets will yield a little more than 10 oz; 6 medium carrots will yield about 8 oz; and 4 stalks of celery will yield about 7 oz.
By comparison, a whole bunch of mature kale or chard (with stems) will yield about 3 oz of juice, and a 6-inch length of ginger will yield about 2 oz, which is plenty for most recipes.
