I’ve bought those half gallon jugs of Odwalla carrot juice several times but never managed to actually finish one. I wish somebody had told me the Jamaican secret to making carrot juice awesome- ginger and lime.
We had some beautiful weekend weather with light winds, which made it the perfect time to do some surfing. This was the perfect post-surf pick-me-up. If the ginger doesn’t wake you up, the color sure will.
I used my Vita-mix to make the juice but I’m sure a regular blender will work as well, though you may want to strain it to make sure it’s free from pulp. And yes, that dayglow/safety/flourescent orange is the real color of the drink. No Photoshop magic there.
