Parsnapple Juice Recipe

A creamy, warming winter juice

Parsnapple Veggie Juice

(parsnips, pears, apples, lime)

Parsnips are not a vegetable I remember eating as a child. In fact, I first ate them when I made veggie crisps from them (super delicious!).

 

I came across them the other day again as I was searching for ingredients for my new juice recipes. I have to say I was blown away by how delicious these are in a veggie juice! Mila even loves the juice made from them – and to be honest, this is the only way I will get parsnips into her!

 

Besides their creamy, warming flavour which is a great reason on its own to use parsnips in a juice, they are a rich source of folate, potassium and vitamin C.

Key: gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, grain-free, nut-free, egg-free, paleo, vegan, great for adults too

Nutrition: exceptionally high in vitamin C.⁠ A very good amount of vitamin K, copper and manganese. A good amount of folate, potassium and vitamin B5.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Serves: 1 (makes 250ml)

When making juices try buy organic fruits and vegetables. If these are unavailable, use one of the fruit & veggie washes mentioned at the bottom of this post. You may also want to peel the fruits and veggies if they are not organic.

INGREDIENTS


  • 3 parsnips, top & tailed
  • 2 small pears, coring optional
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, coring optional

All this goodness…

in a glass!

Ingredient Glossary

Parsnips are a great source of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate, as well as other important micronutrients.

Being high in antioxidants they may prevent oxidative stress and chronic conditions like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

Lime Nutrition Information

Limes are an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of folate. (Vitamin C is vital to the function of a strong immune system.)

 

In addition to the antioxidant qualities due to the vitamin C, limes contain unique flavonoid compounds that also have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties.

Ginger Milas Meals Nutrition Glossary

It is well known as a remedy for headaches, menstrual cramps, motion sickness, nausea, indigestion, wind, colic, irritable bowel, loss of appetite, chills, cold, flu, bronchitis, poor circulation and heartburn. Ginger tea is a useful remedy for morning sickness. It boosts the immune system and protects against bacteria and fungi.

Apple Nutrition Info Milas Meals Ingredient Glossary

Apples are an excellent source of phytonutrients (that function as antioxidants), vitamin C, insoluble and soluble fibre (namely pectin) and boron.

Apples have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties and are able to regulate blood sugar.

Pears are a very good source of dietary fibre (both soluble and insoluble) and a good source of copper, vitamins C and K1.

Pears have antioxidant as well as anti-inflammatory benefits and assist with decreasing the risk of Type 2 diabetes, cholesterol related heart disease and certain cancers.

Fruit & Veggie Washes:

  • Soak fruits or veggies in a basin of water with a tablespoon of bicarb (baking soda) for five minutes, then add a tablespoon of vinegar to the water to rinse them.
  • Spray fruit or vegetables with vinegar and then with 3% (10 volume) hydrogen peroxide, or vice versa (keep these in separate spray bottles, peroxide in a dark or opaque bottle away from sunlight). Then rinse or wipe clean.
  • Or, soak in a basin of cold water with a tablespoon each of salt and lemon juice for five minutes, then rinse.

Any of these will get rid of pesticide residues and waxy coatings, as well as salmonella and bacteria. They will also freshen up tired veggies.

 

What I use:

  • Add 1 tablespoon of 35% Hydrogen Peroxide* to a sink full of water. Allow to soak for 10 – 20 minutes, then rinse.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of bicarb (baking soda) to a sink full of water. Allow to soak for 10 – 20 minutes (while I’m in the shower 🙂 ), then rinse with water.

*If using 35 percent food-grade hydrogen peroxide for cleaning purposes around the house, always use it when it is diluted (I put 100ml into a 1 litre bottle and top up with water).
Avoid coming into direct contact with undiluted food-grade peroxide since it will burn your skin. If you come into contact with it, immediately flush the affected area with water.
It should be stored away from sunlight in a dark air-tight container.
