How to make Carrot Juice
Carrot juice can easily be made at home in a juice or blender. And the best part is that homemade vegetable juice is so much less costly than purchasing at a fancy juicery! For success with this recipe, if using a juicer or blender remove the rind and skin of the orange, and the skin of the ginger before chopping. If using a blender, also remove the skin of the cucumber.
STEP 1: Add the carrots, peeled cucumber, peeled orange, peeled ginger, water (only add water for blender method), and cinnamon into a high speed blender such as a Vitamix (which is what I use).
STEP 2: Place a mesh bag or nut bag over a large bowl. Pour the juice into the bag. Squeeze out all of the juice and discard the “meat”. Pour into a glass over ice and squeeze in the lemon juice to taste.
In a high powered juicer add the carrots, cucumber, ginger, and peeled orange. Juice then add to a pitcher and mix in the cinnamon and lemon. Pour into two glasses over ice.
