Carrots and Oranges

Today I wanted to share a new juicing recipe with you. I’ve been having a lot of fun experimenting with different fruits and vegetables in my juicer. One of my favorite juices has always been the traditional carrot apple ginger juice. Carrots and apples go so well together, but I was curious how carrots and oranges would be together.

The resulting juice was even better, in my opinion, than the carrot apple ginger juice. If you love fresh orange juice, you will love this. The flavor of the orange is so strong that it overrides some of the carrot so what you end up tasting is orange juice with a small touch of the natural carrot flavor.

Carrot Orange Juice

Serves one
Makes one cup

Here’s what you’ll need:
1 valencia orange
4 carrots

Simply wash your carrots and chop into small chunks that your juicer can handle. Then either peel your orange or cut the rind off like you would a grapefruit. Cut your orange in half or into quarters depending on what will fit into your juicer. Then simply juice your orange followed by your carrots.

You will end up with a cup of this delicious carrot orange juice to enjoy!
