Carrots are a fantastic way to get Vitamin A and antioxidants such as beta-carotene into your diet.  Carrots are also a good source of vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin E, several of the B vitamins, important minerals and nutrients such as potassium, manganese, phosphorus, folate, and dietary fiber. 1

Many people enjoy drinking carrot juice by itself, and is without a doubt one of the top sellers of fresh juice sold in supermarkets.  However, because of how relatively inexpensive carrots are, and how they compliment so many different popular juicing ingredients, they are also one of the most popular vegetables for home juicer recipes.

Carrots do a great job of adding sweetness to any juice recipe but do a particularly good job of masking stronger tasting green vegetables.  For this fact alone, they are a key ingredient in many popular “green juice” type or 100% vegetable based recipes.

 Below you will find some basic instructions on preparing carrots for juicing followed by some popular carrot juicing recipes:

Preparing the Carrots

1. Wash the carrots to remove the dirt and cut the green top. ( it is recommended to keep the skin on so you do not lose any of the nutrients located in the skin.)

2. Chop the carrots if necessary depending on your juicer.
