Bunny Spice (aka The Magic Carrot Juice)

When we were in Florence, SC…Becky made this amazing concoction for me. She had been talking and raving about it forever, and when we finally got around to making it, I was sorry I hadn’t taken her up on it sooner! She got the recipe from her friend Tami, and then Tami told me it was a variation of Sarma’s recipe, called the Bunny Spice! It was such a funny coincidence…being that One Lucky Duck is sponsoring us. Yet another reason to get Raw Food Real World!

This drink ROCKS my world. Even if you don’t have a juicer, you could food process the carrots and ginger with a little water…and use a cheese cloth or nut bag to squeeze out the juice. Or, you could get carrot/ginger juice at your local juice bar and hurry home to make it (juices are the most powerful within 30 minutes). Or, if you could even process the carrots/ginger to break them down and then blend them with the rest. It may not be as smooth, but I just want everyone to try this…it’s so unique! The spices are what make it so addicting…so play with them until you find your perfect mixture. I tried to get Becky to give me true measurements (because I’m a recovering obsessive measuring addict!)…but she doesn’t roll that way 🙂 Also, you must serve it in a wine glass or other beautiful drinking vessel…because it makes it “magical”. hee hee! So here it is…enjoy!


Bunny Spice (aka Magic Carrot Juice)

Sarma says: “Carrot juice is a great source of beta carotene, and a powerful antioxidant. However, carrots are also hybridized and much sweeter than wild carrots would be, and so avoid consuming too many of them. Fresh ginger is great for digestion or settling and upset stomach, and it improves circulation.”

1 cup carrot ginger juice (run carrots through juicer with thumb-sized knob of ginger)
1 cup almond milk or brazil nut milk (freshly made is always best!)
2 cups frozen sliced banana

Spice blend (start with a generous pinch of each and adjust to taste)
Cinnamon
Nutmeg (freshly ground is best)
Cardamom (freshly ground is best)
Clove

Juice carrots and ginger. Add to blender with frozen bananas, nut milk, and spices. Blend and drink!

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
