The Orient Express is not just a roller coaster.

orient express

When my husband tasted this juice for the first time, he named it “Orient Express.” We both laughed because it was perfect. Plus, it reminded me of a roller coaster I used to ride at Worlds of Fun when I was younger.

Fresh ginger root, which is widely used in Asian cooking, is what makes this recipe. Ginger has a variety of health benefits: soothes gastrointestinal distress, contains potent anti-inflammatory properties, reduces motion sickness, and alleviates nausea. Fresh ginger root can be found in the produce section of the supermarket and should be stored in your refrigerator, where it will keep for up to three weeks if left unpeeled.

Orient Express

3 carrots, unpeeled and tops removed
2 large apples, unpeeled and cut into slices (discard cores)
1 (1-inch) slice of ginger root, unpeeled

Yield: 2 servings (serving size: 8 ounces or 1 cup)


  1. Do you add ice or water….or does the apple make enough juice? Also…is the one inch round or deep? Or rather would a tablespoon shredded be too much ginger or to little?

    Sorry to bother you…it just looks like a great recipe.

    • No need to add ice or water. If you do, you’ll lose the intense apple flavor! You could always add another apple or two if you want more juice. On the ginger, I measured it at one inch high. You could put shredded in as well. Try one TB and see if that’s enough. It all depends upon how much ginger you like! Thanks for your comment. I hope you enjoy the juice!
