How to Make Turmeric Carrot Ginger Juice
Wash your produce. Chop everything small enough to fit in your juicer or blender. Peel citrus.
Blend or juice
Process your juice with the blender or juicer. If using the blender you will need to strain the juice after. Enjoy!
Can You Make This in the Blender?
You can make this juice in the blender, but I do suggest using the Juicer as it’s much easier with this many ingredients.
When using the blender to make this carrot ginger turmeric juice, make sure to core the apple before slicing. The blender will blend up the seeds in the juice, whereas the juicer separates the seeds automatically. You should also peel the turmeric and ginger using a spoon or vegetable peeler .
It will definitely help to cut all ingredients to a much smaller size so that the blender can function easier. You may also need to use a blender attachment to push all the ingredients towards the bottom.
After blending, strain well through a fine mesh strainer . Be sure to push on the pulp to release the juice.

Storage and Freezing
Storage directions: Fresh fruit juices like this turmeric carrot ginger juice are best enjoyed within 24 hours. I prefer to chill my fresh juices for about 30 minutes prior to serving. Store in the refrigerator for up to 72 hours.
Freezing directions: If you won’t use the juice in the first 3 days, you can freeze it. Freeze the juice in ice cube trays, then transfer the frozen cubes to a freezer bag. Store frozen for 2-3 months. For more information on juicing, check out my Ultimate Guide to Juicing.
If using a blender, make sure the apple core and seeds are removed. You should always peel citrus before using a juicer or blender. Also peel the ginger and turmeric with a spoon or vegetable peeler before blending or juicing. Always wash your produce before using them!
Use the correct juicer speeds
It’s important to use the right juicer speeds for each ingredient. Different fruits and vegetables require different juicer speeds to extract the most nutrients and juice from them. It is recommended to start at low and work your way up to high.
Use fresh quality ingredients
Make sure to use fresh ingredients so you can get the most out of your produce. Using organic produce is great if you’re able to. If you can’t buy all organic ingredients, Check the dirty dozen list to see which fruits and vegetables are more likely to be high in pesticides.
Remember turmeric stains!
The juice from turmeric can stain clothes and skin, so be cautious when handling it.
Save your leftover pulp!
You can always compost your leftover pulp instead of throwing it away. For more ideas on what to do with leftover pulp, check out Ultimate Guide to Juicing.
