Cucumber Orange Hydrating Juice

Summaryorange-carrot-juice

Today’s juice is a beverage well set for the summer season which we’re poised to enter. It’s a sweet and hydrating mixture of cucumber, carrot and orange. We guarantee that if you try this juice, you’ll consider exchanging your next backyard beer or cocktail for it instead. It’s simply that delicious.

The secret to this juice is the natural sugars it contains. Although carrots and cucumbers aren’t sweet by today’s standards, where a cup of yogurt may have 35 grams of sugar, they’re plenty sweet by natural standards. Because all of the ingredients in this recipe contain natural sugars, they won’t cause a giant spike in your blood sugar.

This is a huge deal for diabetics, but it’s also important for the rest of us too. Excessive intake of sugar can eventually lead to pre-diabetic symptoms or diabetes. This juice will only lead to healthfulness, enjoyment and increased hydration though! This juice is a great source of antioxidants, as well as vitamin C. So do your body a favor and get juicing!
