Why You Need This Recipe

  • Carrots are low in calories and high in heart-healthy nutrients. They are rich in Vitamin A, beta carotene, biotin, and potassium. They’re also known for keeping eyes healthy, benefiting the immune system, and reducing the risk of cancer.
  • It’s quick and easy. It only takes 5 minutes to peel and chop the vegetables and then into the juicer they go!
  • Which brings me to my next point – you don’t have to use a juicer! If you’re not an avid juicer and prefer not to buy one you can also use your blender. See my full post on how to make juice in a blender.

Key Ingredients

Carrots are naturally sweet and incredibly good for you which makes them perfect for juicing. They have an earthy flavor that tastes best when paired with a sweeter fruit.

Cucumbers are made up of 96 percent water and have a mild, refreshing taste. They’re also rich in antioxidants that prevent cancer and other diseases.

Apples are naturally sweet and taste great in carrot juice. You can use whichever apples are on sale or any you have on hand.

Just remember that red and yellow apples will taste sweeter than green apples. Don’t be afraid to use one with a few bruises either. Juicing is actually a great way to use them up before they go bad!

Recipe Steps

Step One

Wash and cut the carrots, apple, and cucumber so they are small enough to fit through the feeding tube of your juicer.

Step Four

Pour the juice from the juice collector into a glass and enjoy immediately.
