Cleansing Pear, Carrot and Ginger Juice

This is a fantastic juice which I absolutely love and make several times each month. It has cleansing abilities from the ginger and the pear and is packed with vitamins such as vitamin A (Beta Carotene) which can help protect against macular degeneration. Carrots' antioxidant compounds also help protect against heart disease and cancer. This juice can be made in a juicer or you can buy orange juice and carrot juice to mix together in the blender if you are in a hurry.

Cleansing Pear, Carrot and Ginger Juice

Serves 2 people


  • A fairly small piece fresh ginger (equal to two grapes in size)
  • 50 millilitres (1½ fluid oz) carrot juice or one carrot (you can juice your own if you like)
  • 2 pears, very ripe


  1. If using a juicer: Peel the carrot. Place carrot, the 2 pears and the 2 grams ginger in a juicer. Pour into a container and stir well.
  2. If using a blender: Peel and core the 2 pears. Chop coarsely.
  3. Place the pears in a blender or food processor. Add the 50 millilitres carrot juice and blend for 5 seconds.
  4. Peel the ginger (the skin is very thin, you can scrape it off with a teaspoon or a small knife).
  5. Grate the ginger finely over the blender so that the ginger juice drips into the bowl.
  6. Blend for 10 seconds.
  7. Serve immediately.
  8. Serve with ice cubes if preferred.


  • You can also use an apple instead of one of the pears.
  • For a slightly sweeter juice, add 1 tablespoon agave nectar.
  • For an even more refreshing juice, add 50 millilitres (1½ fluid oz) orange juice.
