Juice recipe: Apple Carrot Juice

Juicing is a quick and easy way to get your daily fruits and vegetables in one sitting. Well, and carrots and apples are ideal choices with their rich nutrient contents to get your body going.

Side effects:

Incorporating fruits and vegetables in your diet supports cardiovascular health, helps prevent some types of cancer, aids in weight management, helps boosting your immune system and detoxifying your liver.

Apples and carrots are great sources of super antioxidants – polyphenol and flavonoids – that are beneficial for your heart’s health. Beta-carotene in carrots makes it a rich source of vitamin A. It also helps improve the immune system.

The abundance of vitamin A in carrot juice can help improve your sight, and the daily intake can prevent the onset of heart diseases and strokes. So, taking one serving of apple–carrot juice every day facilitates the heart to function properly.

Preparation for juicing:

Carrot and apple juice includes washed carrots and cored sweet apples. Do not peel the carrots or apples — many of the nutrients are in the skin, and the juice does not taste different either way.

We drink approx. 64 oz (2 liters) of juice – each 32 oz (1 liter) for one serving. This is part of our lunch: first we drink the juice, and after 1/2 hour, we a eat big, big green salad.

Do not store, or if, then for a really short time (1 day); add some lemon as a preservative. How many apples or carrots you add to the juice is up to your own taste.
