If you haven’t read the Sunflower Carrot Salad post you don’t know yet that I was a distracted fool that didn’t pay attention when making my produce order and instead of ordering one 2lbs bag of carrots, ordered half a case of carrots which ended up bein 24lbs (!) of carrots. I was able to sell a couple of bags but still am left with LOADS. I am now on a mission to feed all those carrots to my family and even though they all love to eat them raw they are kind of getting tired of them and who can blame them after days of eating carrots for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (carrot breakfast recipe coming on Thursday). I basically had to think of a way to “hide” them a little and make a “pimp my carrot” recipe. Tadaaaa: Carrot Cherry Juice! With tons of “stones” as my little nephew describes ice cubes ;)
When I had drunk half the juice I mixed in some sparkling water, because “Sprudel” (German word for sparkling water) is like THE most important beverage here in this house ever since we returned from our family vacation in Germany and thus I had 10 bottles in my fridge. My son won’t drink ANYTHING but Sprudel anymore and soon I’ll have to rob a bank or something for that because Canadian Sprudel ain’t as cheap as German Sprudel. Germans pretty much only drink sparkling water, that’s why it’s so cheap there. Together with beer it is the main beverage and beer is almost as cheap. So if you go to a restaurant in Germany and order non-sparkling water a.k.a. tap water you are the fancy one. Pretty much exactly the opposite to most countries. The thing is, my super fancy kid will throw the glass of regular tap water I hand to him at night when he’s thirsty right at my head and scream: SPRUDEEEEEEL!!! He’s right though. Let’s be honest here. Sprudel tastes sooo much better than tap water and Sprudel with THIS Carrot Cherry Juice……*bliss*
Carrot Cherry Juice
- 250 g cherries
- 250 g carrots
- ice cubes
- sparkling water (optional)
- Wash and pit cherries.
- Peel carrots and remove tops.
- Push all through your juicer.
- Don't forget to rejuice your pulp, this will probably give you another 30-50 ml of juice.
- Serve over ice and if desired with sparking water.
On Thursday I will post a breakfast recipe containing carrots and the rest of the carrots in my fridge will be simply juiced because one, carrot juice is delish, and two I simply can’t eat any moooore carrots!!
