- 5 large carrots
- 2 large oranges
- Half an inch square of ginger (optional).
Peel the oranges but not the carrots. Do remove any greens from the carrot tops as these contain alkaloids that can make you sick. Cut everything into small squares if using a masticating juicer, otherwise just push them all down the food chute, oranges first.
Carrot juice is a wonderful juice for many reasons. It's thought to have strong anti-cancer properties due to high concentrations of beta carotene. It may also help reduce cholesterol, help reduce fatigue, not to mention help tired eyes and improve your vision. Carrots are also packed with vitamin A, which can get depleted in your body if you drink too much alcohol, leading to dry skin.
Oranges add a nice sweeteness to this juice and packs a good dose of vitamin C.
The ginger adds a little background heat to the juice. Ginger may help your body fight cancer.
