Carrot and Orange Juice – Instructions
None of these flavors are particularly strong or overpowering. When blended together you will get a nice taste of sweet and acidic. When using the herbs, you can add both or just one of them. If you want to try other flavors, parsley, rosemary or dill will all add another layer of flavor to your juice.
If you don’t want to peel the fruit and vegetables don’t worry (except the orange), but do wash them first. Depending on your blender/ juicier you may or may not have to cut the food first. Start off by blending the carrots, then, add the oranges, tomato, and apple. Blend them well and taste. Add your herbs depending on your taste buds. If you aren’t getting enough of the citrus kick, try adding a tablespoon of lemon juice.
Anyone who has ever had children will remember trying to come up with different purees for their little ones, gradually introducing foods to check for any allergic reactions. Now, some specialists are saying we should mix a fruit with a vegetable. This way, children are not inclined to favor the sweeter fruits over vegetables. Carrot and orange juice is a perfect example, as a puree and a juice.
There are two things about carrots that will always stick in our minds: They turn your skin orange if you eat too many. They help you see in the dark. They might be things that we are told to encourage us to eat our veggies but there is an element of truth. Carrots contain beta-carotene. If you eat a lot of carrots, the pigment in the carrots will have an effect on your skin. Beta-carotene is also very good for the eyesight, but whether that is enough to help you see in the dark is still unknown!
