Carrot juice recipe for kids & toddlers – Carrot juice can be made in a mixer, blender or juicer very easily at home. Carrot is one of the most versatile root vegetables which is used in so many ways in our day to day diet. No doubt juicing carrots is the best way to provide vital nutrients to our body. Consuming carrot juice or eating raw carrots regularly or often helps in improving the health of the eyes, reduces stress and builds immunity.
We make carrot juice sometimes when the kids ask for it or when I end up having too many carrots in the fridge. The taste of the carrot juice depends on the variety & age of carrots used. Young and tender carrots are best for juicing since the aroma is mild and taste delicious.
Fresh carrot juice is alkaline and can help folks with digestive or acidity problems. Carrots can be juiced alone or with some citrus fruit like orange, grapefruit, tangerines or lemons. Not all fruits go well with carrot, so we mostly make them with sweet oranges, pears or lemon.
