Ingredients for Autumn Harvest Juice
This juice recipe only contains 4 ingredients. You can choose if you like to buy organic produce or conventional. For this recipe you will need:
- sweet potatoes
Fresh ginger can also be added to this recipe for an extra kick.
How to make Autumn Harvest Juice
The first step to making this recipe is to prep your fruits and vegetables. First, wash all of your produce well. Then, peel the sweet potatoes. Next, cut all produce to fit into the juicer (see image below).
The peel can be left on the apples and carrots. Also, the rind can stay on the orange. I prefer to remove the peel from the sweet potato because it may cause extra wear on the juicer and it doesn’t contain any juice to be released.
Then, run the produce through in the following order: sweet potatoes, carrots, apple and orange. This ensures that the juicier fruits push everything out of the juicer. Serve juice immediately.
What if I don’t have a juicer?
If you don’t have a juicer this juice is a little difficult to recreate and it will not give you the best results. However, it can be done.
To make it without a juicer, combine all produce (cut into smaller pieces) in a high speed blender. Blend until smooth then strain through a cheesecloth. Thanks to the increased popularity of juicers they are very affordable now. The juicer that I own can be found here and it has worked very well for me for quite a few years!
Preparing and storing juice
Juice should be consumed right away since it is not pasteurized, therefore I would only make what you plan to consume immediately. If you do happen to have leftover juice keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Be sure to consume leftover juice within 24 hours.
What should I do with the pulp?
There are many uses for the leftover pulp that will be created by your juicer instead of tossing them in the garbage. You can add it to soups or stews for added fiber and flavor. Also, it can be composted.
