    How to Make Carrot Juice


    Making the most of the benefits of carrot juice is remarkably easy – start juicing carrots! There’s really not much else to it. If you’ve been juicing for a while already, chances are you’ve already been using carrots.

    Prepare your carrots for juicing by washing thoroughly in cold water with a stiff brush. It’s best not to peel your carrots though, as many valuable vitamins and minerals lie close to the surface.

    One of the benefits of carrot juice is that they go with everything, so it’s a great opportunity for you to experiment. You can juice them on their own, or mix them with other fruits and vegetables, such as apples, celery, spinach or even avocado (in a blender though).
