Carrot juice is a delicious way to get your nutrients for the day. A single glass of carrot juice is packed with vitamins and minerals that help in cleansing the liver, boosting metabolism, and increasing immunity. With raw carrots, some water, and a little bit of effort, you can make this refreshing vegetable juice at home!
Wash the carrots under running water and scrub them using a brush to remove all the dirt from the skin surface.
Using a sharp knife, chop the head (the greens on the broader end) of carrots and cut them into small round pieces.
Add the chopped carrots and one cup of water to the blender. Blend it well.
Stretch a piece of cheesecloth or a nut milk bag over a mason jar or a glass. Slowly pour the blended mixture through.
Squeeze the pulp with the help of a cheesecloth or a nut milk bag repeatedly to extract as much juice as possible. Refrigerate the leftover pulp. It can be used to flavor muffins, cakes, and even bread.
You may add some ice if you prefer it chilled. Enjoy!
To double the health benefits, try mixing carrot juice with some orange juice. It tastes yummy too!
You may add some more water to your carrot juice to adjust the thickness and taste as per your choice.
The juice starts losing its antioxidant properties and nutrition, therefore, it is advisable to drink it immediately. If you'd like to store it, refrigerate it and consume within 24 hours.
