Ingredients

Equipment

  • juicer – we use a Breville Juicer for this recipe which is a centrifugal juicer that uses a high-speed spinning blade to extract juice from fruits and vegetables.

Instructions

Step 1

First, start by peeling the oranges as the juicer is not designed to handle thick orange peels.

Plus the peels are bitter and won’t taste very good in the juice.

Step 2

Next, pass the carrots and oranges through a juicer.

The pure juice will come out of the juicer chute and into the container.

Then, pour your juice into glasses.

Easy peasy!

Expert tips

This recipe isn’t for a regular blender. Hard veggies like carrots just don’t blend enough to make pure juice without pulp.

Cut the carrot into smaller chunks for easier juicing!

Recipe variations

  • Add a knob of fresh ginger to the carrot orange blend for added potassium and minerals such as iron, calcium, and phosphorus.
  • Supercharge this juice with a sprinkle of turmeric which has the potential to improve heart health.
  • Toss in a few chunks of pineapple for the enzymes! They may help improve digestion.

Serving suggestions

  • My favorite way to enjoy this fresh juice is poured over ice. It is perfect in the morning during the warmer months.
  • Enjoy as a healthy and energizing addition to your breakfast. Pair it with your morning meal, such as peanut butter granola, yogurt, or a bowl of chia overnight oats, for a nutritious start to the day.
  • Have a glass before exercising. The natural sugars from the oranges can provide a quick burst of energy to power through your workout.
  • Incorporate the juice into smoothies to add extra nutrition. We love adding it to a green smoothie to lend some added sweetness.

FAQS

Should I strain the juice after juicing?

Most juicers do a good job of separating the juice from the pulp, but if your juicer doesn’t remove all the pulp, you may strain the juice through a fine sieve to achieve a smoother texture.

What is the best time to drink carrot orange juice?

There is no specific “best” time to drink carrot orange juice. The important thing is to drink it when the juice is fresh to get the most out of the nutritional benefits.

Storage tips

For the freshest taste and highest nutritional value, it’s best to enjoy the juice immediately after juicing.

If you need to store it, you can use an airtight container and refrigerate it for up to 24 hours.
