If you’ve never had homemade carrot juice, you are in for a real treat. Because carrots are a naturally sweet vegetable, they are perfect for the base of a juice.

For this recipe, I added a few other ingredients including lemon, orange, and ginger to take this carrot juice recipe to the next level.

Flavor & Health Benefits

While you can just use carrots to make a homemade carrot juice, I think adding a few other ingredients makes it really special. The lemon and orange juices add brightness, while the ginger adds a little tang.

This recipe has almost 70% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C. And, Vitamin C is known to be a big supporter of the immune system.

Carrot juice benefits have been known to include: immune health, eye health, relieve constipation, reduce bad cholesterol, and more. Learn more about the health benefits of carrot juice.

The juice is sweet, slightly tangy, and so perfect for helping fight off any seasonal bugs. It’s also a very hydrating recipe. I suggest using it as the base of my Strawberry Green Smoothie or my Anti-Cancer Green Smoothie recipe.

FAQs

How do you make carrot juice in a blender?

To make fresh juice in a blender, you just need to add the same ingredients to a high-speed blender like a Blendtec or a Vitamix, turn on high, and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture through a nut milk bag to catch the fiber, and then enjoy the juice. The juice pulp can be used to make my Carrot Pulp Crackers!

Can carrot juice turn your skin orange?

Yes, that can happen. The reason is because carrot juice is so high in carotenoids, an antioxidant found in carrots. The change is skin tone is likely temporary, but you might want to ask your healthcare provider if it is safe for you.

Is juicing healthy?

Juice can most definitely be part of a healthy diet. Fresh juice is especially high in vitamins and other micronutrients. Most juice also contains some fiber, although most of it is taken out during the juicing process. A smaller amount of fiber can be beneficial for getting a lot of micronutrients without stressing the digestive system.

For people who have blood sugar dysregulation or who are pregnant or who have compromised immune systems, you should talk to your healthcare provider.

Best Juicer

I highly recommend using a masticating type juicer if you want to make juice a lot at home. It’s an investment, but it’s not outrageously expensive. I have an Omega juicer and am very happy with it.
