Carrot Juice Recipe


Have you ever tasted a juice so creamy, sweet, and healthy? If you've never had fresh, squeezed carrot juice, you are in for a sweet surprise.

I consider carrot juice to be a perfect base for any vegetable juice recipe due to it's sweet, yet mellow taste. Carrot juice will mask any green taste of vegetables and add sweetness to the overall taste.

Similar to apple juice, carrot juice pairs well with any type of green leafy vegetables such as lettuce and celery. It even plays well with strong and bitter kale!

So whether you're juicing for weight loss, or looking for a way to maximize your intake of vitamins and minerals, check out these delicious carrot juice recipes!

Benefits Juicing Carrots

When was the last time you ate this many carrots? Probably never! Can you imagine all the vitamin A you can obtain through a 12 oz glass of carrot juice?

Carrots are known for the generous amount of vitamins A, C, and calcium.

As for the myth about turning into an ompaloompa with orange skin, that really is just a myth. Vitamin A will help you maintain healthy eyes and skin.

Carrots also have the following nutrients:

  • beta-carotene
  • folic acid
  • chlorine
  • magnesium
  • sodium
  • zinc

The Best Carrot Juice Recipes


Let's get right to the carrot juice recipes that you've been anxious to try! After all the talk about how beneficial carrots are for your body, I'm sure you're almost about to start drooling.

So here are my favorite carrot juice recipes. Hands down, they are the most delicious and refreshing juices.

Pure Carrot Juice Recipe


How to make carrot juice

Personally, I just love the taste of pure carrot juice. By itself, carrot juice has a smooth sweet taste. It's like sipping liquid butter!

Juicing carrot juice is as simple as it looks. Wash the carrots thoroughly and make sure you cut the top off and discard it. The top is usually where all the toxic impediments are hanging out. It is best to buy organic carrots. You can leave the skin on if your carrots are organic. Otherwise, I would suggest peeling the outer skin off.

If pure carrot juice is a bit too sweet for you, try combining other fruits and vegetables!

Carrot Apple Juice Recipe

Adding an apple can boost your health benefits. You know the saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away?" Well I think an apple and carrot a day should be the new phrase! This recipe is a classic, but the ginger gives it that extra "zang."

  • 4 carrots
  • 2 apples
  • 1/2 inch know of ginger

  • 1 bell pepper
  • handful of parsley


Carrot Juice Recipe with Pears and Celery

  • 4 carrots
  • 1 large pear
  • 3 celery stalks
  • Half a lime
  • Optional: Substitute celery for stronger tasting greens such as kale, lettuce, cabbage

Carrot Juice Recipe ~ Ultimate Blood Detox

  • 5 carrots
  • Handful of spinach leaves
  • 4 romaine lettuce
  • Handful of parsley
  • Ginger
  • 2 celery

Spinach has a lot of iron, which is the main ingredient for hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is found in red blood cells and is responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body.

If you don't have enough iron, that means your body isn't able to produce enough hemoglobin. The result of not getting enough oxygen to muscles is fatigue!

If you want to feel that long lasting energetic feeling throughout the day, drink this green carrot juice.

      I love carrot juice, and I recently tried making carrot soup with addition of freshly made juice - it was amazing - and another great way to enjoy carrots!

      I used to make carrot juice a lot but haven't done it regularly for a while. You've got some interesting recipes here - though I hadn't thought about using spinach leaves before. I'll have to give that one a try. Great Hub. Voted up.

      I actually use the Magic Bullet to do my juicing. It works well. I make carrot juice a lot, many times with lemon, apples and celery.

      You have a lot of interesting variations here that I need to try. I never thought of combining it with Pineapple and Grapefruit. For that matter, I'm going to go make one right now. I've got the carrots and other stuff ready to go in my refrigerator.

      Magic Bullet works great too. Hope you like the variation with pineapple or grapefruit, it balances out the sweetness with a little citrus kick. Enjoy, Glenn! :-)
