This juice is the perfect way to start your busy day. If you want peel all of the ingredients the night before and place in a zip lock bag or plastic container. This will save you some time in the morning! Papain, a powerful protein found in papaya helps sooth and coat an upset or nervous stomach. Both carrots and oranges provide a huge antioxidant boost from vitamin C plus provide beta carotene for healthy eyes and skin. These ingredients are thus said to posses anti-aging benefits. Ginger root provides detoxifying properties to this juice.
2 cups of papaya, cubed
2 large peeled carrots
1 large peeled orange
1/4 to 1/2 in cube fresh ginger root (depends on how spicy you want to make it!)
– Peeling the outer layer of the carrot skin removes some of its bitterness.
– Removing the orange skin: cut in half and then insert your fingers between the outer skin and the orange. The skin should come right off like a baseball cap. See pictures below.
-Ginger: is a very potent ingredient. Use in small quantities! Peel the skin off with a small spoon or cut with a knife. In my hand is a hefty 1 inch cube for those who cannot measure with their eyes, notice the proportion in relation to my fingers. I used about 1/3 of that cube in my juice.
Juice the orange, papaya and ginger at low speed. Then switch to high speed for the carrots. Serve and enjoy immediately.
Serving Size: two 7.5 oz glasses or one tall glass
