Juicing Recipes: Carrot Juice

Benefits of juicing goes beyond weight loss.  Each and every vegetable and fruit boasts its own nutrient packed benefit for your body and overall heath and wellness; and when combined with other [fruits and vegetables] it packs an even greater health punch. As I mentioned last week in my article, #15byChristmas, juicing for health, I recommend a starter juicing book for those new the world of juicing,  The Everything Juicing Book. This book details benefits of most common fruits and vegetable as well as the outcome of combining certain produce together. It’s always best to arm yourself with knowledge and know why you’re doing certain things in a certain way, it makes the success of the outcome more understandable and attainable. I add jalapeno peppers 1-2 depending on the size, to most of my juices. I like my juices hot & spicy and its add tremendous flavor and depth to the overall juice. Most times I garnish my juice, I like the extra added touch. I do not follow a recipe with said amounts. Rule of thumb, if you keep your ingredients to 1-2 pieces, stalks, cups etc…with approximately 6 ingredients you’ll have about 8-12 ounces of juice. If you add more ingredients and/or larger portion sizes you’ll make more juice. Depending on how much juice you want to make adjust your amounts.

Carrot Juice

Known as the king of juicing vegetables, carrots add a sweet taste to juice when combined with other vegetables. Carrots are jammed packed with vitamins A,B,C,D,E,K and minerals. Fresh carrot juice jump starts digestion, cleanses the liver and gives a healthy glow to hair, skin and nails.

2 pounds carrots, washed and trimmed yields approximately 16 ounces of juice.

  • Process the carrots in a juicer, garnish and serve
If you’re combining carrots with other vegetables process the vegetables and fruit in the juicer, garnish and serve.
Fruit and vegetable suggestions to combine with carrots for more flavorful juices:
  • Apple, beet, carrot, ginger juice
  • Apple, beet, carrot juice
  • Carrot, orange juice
  • Carrot, kale juice
  • Carrot, broccoli, cauliflower, red cabbage
