Carrot Juice Recipes

Updated on January 29, 2014

Simple & Easy Carrot Juice

Most of us have probably got a bag of carrots in the fridge, and additionally to using them for cooking, what better way to utilize them than making a couple of simple and easy carrot juices?

Carrots are an economical vegetable which contains 90% water making them extremely easy to juice with. They are easy to mix and match with other fruit and vegetables, so here is a few basic carrot juice recipes to give you some ideas.

How to make Carrot Juice

A glass of carrot juice made from 4 large carrots (300g) contains around 120 calories, so I have based the following recipes on that amount of carrots per glass of juice. Feel free to adjust to your liking.

How to make: Always wash carrots and all other ingredients prior to juicing. Cut top off carrots and peel Citrus Fruits (e.g. oranges, lemons, lime, grape fruit etc). Cut to fit juicer, Juice & Enjoy!

Basic Carrot Juice: All you need to make a standard carrot juice is Carrots, and 4 large carrots will give you roughly one cup (250ml) of juice. You can also add Ginger and Lemon to your juice to give it a bit of a boost.

Just add 1 tablespoon Ginger and 1/2 peeled lemon, and you'll have a refreshing Juice! Ginger may be a bit of an acquired taste, so depending on your liking you may wish to add more or less. I commonly add ginger to my juices, and to my cooking in general, as I enjoy the strong flavor it gives.

2 peeled oranges

Carrot + Cucumber, Beet, Lime

Juices

4 Carrots

1 large cucumber

1/4 peeled lemon

4 carrots

Nutritional benefits

of Carrots

Carrots are high in magnesium, calcium and potassium, and contain small amounts of selenium, iron and zinc and are therefore a good source of minerals. Carrots also contain small amount of amino acids, although they are mostly water and carbohydrates.

So if looking to loose weight on a big scale, carrots should only be used in moderation, as they are a member of the High Carb vegetable group (e.g. potatoes, pees, corn, beets). However they are still a much better choice than a chocolate bar, so keep it in perspective :-)

One of the greatest benefits of eating/juicing Carrots is the improvement of eyesight and cleansing of the liver. Carrots are a great source of vitamins such as Vitamin A (via Beta carotene), K & C, and is an easy all round vegetable to juice and cook with.

So let's get started!

      Carrots really are adaptable to pair with other fruits and vegetables for great taste, high fiber and high nutritive value as well as being very economical.
