How to Make Carrot Juice
3 Simple Methods for Juicing Carrots
Learning how to make carrot juice is a good idea, as it’s a superb health drink. I was surprised to find out that you don’t actually need a juicer.
So if you want to experience the benefits of carrot juice but don’t have one – don’t stress! I’m going to show you three different ways you can juice our little orange friends.
Carrot juice promotes strong bones and teeth, aids immune function, reduces cancer risk and much more. It’s great when juicing for cancer.
1. How to Make Carrot Juice with an Electric Juicer.
You guessed it.
The first and most popular way of making carrot juice is simply to use an electric juice machine. It’s quick, easy, and the most efficient at removing any pulp or fiber.
Wash your carrots thoroughly to get rid of any pesticides and dirt. You can peel them if you like too; however I don’t since the skin contains lots of healthy nutrients. Hit the “on” switch on the juicer and juice away. Enjoy your fresh glass of carrot juice.
Already got a juicer? Great. If not, I recommend you buy one as soon as you can. There are plenty of models to suit any budget. Just think of it as an investment – it’s seriously one of the best things you can do for your health.
2. How to Make Carrot Juice with a Blender
Another method of making carrot juice is with a blender. The only difference to a juicer will be that all the pulp will be in the juice, unless you use a filtering device.
If you’re trying to get as much carrot juice as possible, you’ll probably be disappointed with the results of this method. Sure, you’ll get some juice, but not as much as you would like.
- Grab a kilogram of carrots (2 pounds) and place them in your blender or food processor. Blend until the carrots are chopped finely or mashed. If the carrots are too dry, simply add a little water to get everything moving again.
- Pour your carrot juice into a large jug and add half a liter of water (500mL).
- Let stand for 30 minutes.
- Strain it, and with any luck, you’ll have some great tasting carrot juice.
- Pour into a glass over ice.
To spice your juice up, try adding the juice of a few oranges. If you want it to go further, just add water.
3. How to Make Carrot Juice with a Manual (non-electric) Juicer
I haven’t tried this myself, and I don’t really care to. It’s probably the least popular method I’ve heard of, and with good reason. They’re pretty much obsolete, so I doubt you’ll be able to find one anyway.
You’ll need to use a fair bit of elbow grease to get any sizeable amount of juice from this method, however, like any fresh juice, it will taste great.
Just spin the carrots through to get your juice, then drink and enjoy.
How to Make Carrot Juice (the fastest way)
Head down to the local mall, find a juice bar and order some carrot juice.
There you go – simply, easy, fast and you don’t have to make it yourself nor clean the juicer.
Need to Know
- You don’t have to peel the carrots, but if they’re not organic, it might be a good idea. However, like I mentioned above, there are lots of great nutrients in the skin, so you might want to keep it.
- Try adding ginger for a tasty twist.
- To soften up your carrots, soak them in water for about 5 minutes before you juice.
Take the Plunge and Buy a Juicer
Instead of trying the second two methods mentioned here, just buy a juicer. You’ll save time, energy, and you’ll juice so much more with a good, electric juicer.
That means a healthier, better looking you!
