The blender I’d ordered last week arrived a couple of days ago, so I had to get more fruit and vegetables to “feed” it. Unfortunately getting some of the fruit and vegetables that Jason Vale & Co recommend wasn’t possible in my local Dunnes Stores, but I was able to get some new ingredients to experiment with.
So over the last couple of days I’ve been making juices with fresh ginger root.
The recipe below is what I had for breakfast this morning.
Compared to a lot of the juices I’ve been having over the last couple of weeks it’s a lot lighter and sweeter.
While it’s incredibly tasty it might be a bit too light for a full breakfast, so I’d probably consider it as more of a “snack” or something to drink with other food.
Apple, Carrot, Pineapple & Ginger Juice
- 1 apple
- 3 medium carrots
- 5 cm of fresh pineapple sliced with skin
- 1 cm slice of fresh ginger root
Clean the carrots. I generally use a peeler to remove the outer layer and then top and tail them with a knife
Slice up all the fruit and vegetables so that they'll fit through the juicer
Push the fruit and vegetables through the juicer at a low speed alternating ingredients
Enjoy the freshly made juice

The colour and taste of this juice is fantastic!
My mission for today is to find a source of fresh beetroot and a few other ingredients that I was unable to find in Dunnes Stores. Hopefully either SuperQuinn or Tesco will stock them. If they don’t then I’m not sure what I’ll do 🙁
