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.

Fruit & Veggie Washes:

  • Soak fruits or veggies in a basin of water with a tablespoon of bicarb (baking soda) for 10 – 20 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.

 

I tend to put leave my fruits and veggies to soak while I am either in the shower or doing other chores before breakfast and dinner.

Avoid coming into direct contact with hydrogen 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.
