Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Working in this order, process tomato, orange, apple and carrots through a juicer according to the manufacturer's directions. (No juicer? See Tip.)

  • Fill 2 glasses with ice, if desired, and pour the juice into the glasses. Serve immediately.


No juicer? No problem. Try this DIY version of blended and strained juice instead: Coarsely chop all ingredients. First, place the soft and/or juice ingredients in the blender and process until liquefied. Then, add the remaining ingredients; blend until liquefied. Cut two 24-inch-long pieces of cheesecloth. Completely unfold each piece and then stack the pieces on top of each other. Fold the double stack in half so you have a 4-layer stack of cloth. Line a large bowl with the cheesecloth and pour the contents of the blender into the center. Gather the edges of the cloth together in one hand and use the other hand to twist and squeeze the bundle to extract all the juice from the pulp. Wear a pair of rubber gloves if you don't want the juice to stain your hands.

I will make this recipe with the blender and NOT strain it. I used to have a juicer but tossed it into the good will because it hit me that I was throwing out the pulp which is fiber!! My mantra now is "eat it the way it grows" and don't drink strained juice. Read More

Excellent taste I usually make my morning juice with just apples and carrots. I found this recipe made a good drink just better! I did use a red tomato. Pros: Easy Cons: no yellow tomatoes in winter! Read More
