You will love this carrot juice

This is one of our favorite juicing recipes because it tastes amazing and is so simple to make!

Carrot juice is a powerhouse of nutrients including Vitamin C and Vitamin A. You can read all about the benefits of carrot juice here if you want. We love its sweet and refreshing taste!

Juicing is one of my favorite self care routines and I try to make fresh juice at least 3-4 times a week, if not more.

For me, it’s a fantastic way to get an extra boost of nutrients far and above what I would normally get in my day to day veggie and fruit intake. While I never replace meals with juicing, I have found it as a great addition to my lifestyle and really noticed a difference in how I feel!

When I was a teenager, I got started with juicing and carrot juice was one of my absolute favorites. I would buy the 25 pound bags from the grocery store and laugh when the cashier asked me if I had a horse. Carrots pair so well with any kind of juice, are naturally sweet, and packed full of vitamins and minerals!

How to make Carrot Juice

Step 1: Prepare your ingredients. I often peel my carrots for a smoother taste, but this isn’t necessary. You can simply rinse and scrub off any dirt. Peel your oranges and cut them into quarters, and peel your ginger.

Step 2: Run all ingredients through a juicer. Drink the juice immediately, or store it for later.

Carrot Juice FAQs

Is it ok to drink fresh carrot juice every day?


It’s not recommended to drink too much carrot juice, as it can lead to carotenemia, which is a temporary condition that can turn your skin a yellowish color from too much beta-carotene. Try making other vegetable juices in addition to this one in a rotation.

Is drinking carrot juice the same as eating carrots?

Drinking carrot juice will provide the pretty much the same nutrients, but will not contain the fiber you would get when eating carrots.

I usually will drink a carrot centric juice like this once a week or so to avoid getting too much beta carotene on a daily basis. This will vary person to person and you can ask your doctor if you are wondering how often you should drink carrot juice. Otherwise, I try to incorporate 4-5 carrots in my other juicing recipes for a blend of flavors and nutrients.

How to store juice

While it’s best to consume fresh juice immediately, you can also store it in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours. Store any leftover juice in an airtight glass jar with a lid in the refrigerator. I usually consume mine within 24 hours for the best freshness.
