Blood Orange Power Juice

Blood Orange Power Juice

Servings 1 serving
Author Brandon Matzek

Ingredients

  • 3 blood oranges (regular oranges work here as well)
  • 2 medium sized (5 to 6-inches) long carrots
  • 2 baby beets, any color works here
  • 1 (1-inch) piece of fresh ginger
  • 1 (1-inch) piece of fresh turmeric*
  • Ice

Instructions

  1. Using a knife, remove the peel and pith surrounding the blood oranges. Discard peel and pith. Trim carrots and beets of any greens, and scrub off any dirt under cold, running water. Save greens for another use (salad or pesto are good options). Peel ginger, and rinse turmeric.
  2. Using a juicer, juice oranges, carrots, beets, ginger and turmeric into a clean glass. Stir to combine. Add ice to taste. Enjoy immediately.
  3. Don’t have a juicer? This juice can be made in a blender, but a little more prep is needed. Cut the peeled blood oranges into several pieces, and pick out and discard any pits. Add blood orange fruit to a blender. Peel the carrots, beets and turmeric. Slice carrots, beets, ginger and turmeric, and also add to the blender. Blend on high speed until smooth. Pour into a large glass, and add ice if desired.

Recipe Notes

* Fresh turmeric can be found at Specialty Produce and many Asian markets around town. If fresh turmeric isn’t available, do not use dried turmeric. Simply omit from the recipe. Also, fresh turmeric easily stains anything it comes in contact with, so be careful when handling.
