Ingredients

  • 750 ml/ 3 cups Cloudy apple juice (not from concentrate)
  • 1 Medium carrot (50g/ 2oz)
  • 50 g/ 2 oz Blackcurrants (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 Fig
  • 1 Ripe pear
  • 1 tsp Lemon juice

Instructions

  • Begin by chopping the carrot roughly and plunging into boiling water for 2-3 minutes to soften it. Drain and plunge into iced water to stop the cooking process
  • Peel & core the pear and roughly chop
  • Put all of the ingredients into a blender and whizz for 1-3 minutes until smooth
  • Allow the froth to settle for 5-10 minutes, stir and pour into a 1 litre container
  • Store in the fridge for up to 3 days, shaking gently before decanting into glasses

Notes

1. The quantities listed make approximately 1 litre of juice. 2. Natural separation may occur when stored in the fridge - just shake gently before serving 3. I peeled my pears since I do not have a super-power blender. If you have such a blender then (I'm jealous) you could try leaving the skin on the pear. Let me know how it goes if you try it.
