Orange And Carrot Juice Carrots are among the most common food choice in juicing. Aside from being tasty, carrots are rich in Vitamin A which helps in maintaining a good vision. Moreover, carrots also contain minerals and antioxidants which help keep our body cells healthy.

Here are two very simple ways on how to prepare your carrot juice.

Method 1: With a Juicer

Step 1:
Clean the carrots. Wash all the needed carrots with cold water. You might need to use a vegetable brush to clean the creases to make sure they are thoroughly clean.
Step 2:
Chop up the carrots into chunks. This is to aid the juicer thus easy juice extraction. However, for industrial-strength juicers, this step is unnecessary.
Step 3:
Properly set a tall glass below the spout. Make sure you catch the extract!
Step 4:
Feed the juicer. Drop the chunks one by one. If the carrots are very juicy, be ready with a new glass. Conversely, if the carrots are shrunken, add more carrots into the feed.
Step 5:
Enjoy your carrot juice!

Method 2: With a Food Processor

Step 1:
Clean the carrots (approx. 8 pieces). Wash all the needed carrots with cold water. You might need to use a vegetable brush to clean the creases to make sure they are thoroughly clean.
Step 2:
Place the carrots in the food processor. Continue processing until the carrots are fine or mashed. If the carrots are not very juicy, you may need to add a little water to it.
Step 3:
Add hot water. The puree must be poured in a large cup or glass and add 2 cups of hot water then stir.
Step 4:
Leave the mixture for around 15 – 30 minutes. You must allow it to steep.
Step 5:
Time to remove the pulp. Use a hand strainer when straining the juice into a 2 quart container or pitcher. Using a base of a blunt object or a glass, press the pulp into the strainer to drain as much extract as possible. If you hate pulp and want to strain more (although pulp is very healthy), pour the strained juice into a jelly strainer or a clean cloth then squeeze.
Step 6:
Add more juice! It’s actually not necessary but most people want to add orange juice to the carrot extract to make it tastier. Just juice two oranges.
Step 7:
Adjust the concentration. Take a sip and decide whether the blend is right for you or not. If it’s too concentrated for your taste, you can add more water.
Step 8:
Add ice as preferred. Enjoy!
