Oompa Loompa Juice

Oompa Loompa juice is a genius recipe that is capable of satisfying even the snobbiest of taste buds. It was so delicious that I got addicted to it on the first day. It was love at first sip.
I named the concoction Oompa Loompa because it's color resembled that of an Oompa Loompa. Ironically, I also resembled the color because I was so addicted to this juice I drank it everyday sometimes more than once a day. After a week I started turning orange. No joke.
Beta-carotene addiction is nothing to scoff at however, I'd rather look like a cast member of Jersey Shore than to go a day without this wonderful juice of awesomeness.
The benefits of this drink are many. My energy has greatly improved, I have better night vision (I don't recommend this drink to stalkers), my eyelashes started growing longer (this is beauty juice... If you drink it in moderation) and overall my body just feels better. So what's in this fantastical beverage of wonder? Hold your ponies that's what I'm getting to right now!
Ingredients for one serving:
5 long organic carrots
1 organic pink lady apple
1 organic orange
Tips before sips
Don't juice the carrot tops (they're toxic)
Peel the carrots (I have found that un-peeled carrots result in a more bitter juice)
When juicing do not just juice the carrots and then the orange and the apple. Your juicer will not like this. These fruits have more water in them than carrots which makes it easier to juice so juice your watery fruits with your less watery vegetables.(watery fruits or vegetables equals smoother juicing)
Use organic fruits and veggies if possible (the last thing you want in your body are GMO's and pesticides)
Always refrigerate the carrots and apples you use.
Don't over do it (limit yourself to one glass a day to prevent turning orange and excess calories in your diet because the calorie content in this bad boy is around 230)
Remember to sing the Oompa Loompa song as you juice this awesomeness (not required but I highly recommend it.)
Enjoy yourself and the Oompa Loompa Juice!
