Pears are one of fall's most forgotten-about fruits, but we can't imagine why when there's a juice recipe with pears this good. Made by Marra St.Clair and Lori Kenyon-Farley, certified nutritional consultants and co-founders of USDA-certified organic Ritual Wellness Cleanse, this combination of ingredients is especially good to boost your immunity as the colds and coughs come rolling in. 

Ingredients

  • large pear
  • tangerine
  • lemon

Juice tangerine and lemon in a manual citrus juicer. Juice pear and ginger in a juicer. Mix together. Garnish with cayenne if you want an extra kick.

Ginger Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Ginger Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
