To celebrate the Australian Apple Season kicking off we have put together a super simple yet delicious apple juice recipe for you to make in your MOD Cold Press Juicer.
The leftover pulp can be then used to make these healthy, fluffy apple muffins which are a great addition to a kids lunch box or a mid morning treat with a cup of tea or coffee. They even will make a great on-the-run breakfast option.
The Australian Apple Season means that a wide range of juicy red apples are perfectly sweet and any of your favourite varieties will work great in this.
Apple Juice with a Twist
5 medium, red apples, chopped into chunks
1/2 lemon, peeled
A knob of ginger, size depending on preference
3 small sized carrots
Process all the apples through the juicer and then set the pulp aside before juicing the rest of the ingredients.
Process the remaining ingredients, adjusting the flavours to suit individual preferences.
Divide juice between two glasses and enjoy over ice!
Use the apple pulp in the below recipe! If you dont have enough pulp from the apples to make a full 2 cups, simply top up the cup by adding in some grated apple.
