  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 purple carrots (if unavailable, see notes)
  • 2 large carrots (orange)
  • 2 large apples (dark red if possible)
  • 3 large stalks celery
  • 1⁄2 cup mixed sprouts
  • filtered water

Method:

  1. In a large bowl of water, place a splash of apple cider vinegar and soak the vegetables, apples and sprouts for 3–5 minutes, then remove and drain.
  2. Scrub the celery and carrots if desired. Using a juicing machine, juice the ingredients, ending by adding a splash of filtered water.
