Strawberry Carrot Juice

Today we’re having a look at a juice which brings together two all-stars of the juicing world. Our ambassador from the vegetable side is the trusty old carrot. Carrots are a mainstay of juicing for a variety of reasons. First of all, they’re quite healthy. Packed with antioxidants like beta carotene, a carrot is almost a good choice for juicing. Because it’s got a decent amount of inherent sweetness, the carrot can be peppered into a recipe to lighten it up. But it works equally well as the featured ingredient.

Strawberries are something of a decadent choice, but they aren’t without their health attributes. A cup of strawberries will provide you with one and a half times the daily recommended intake of vitamin C. But don’t fear OD’ing on vitamin C – you’d have to try really hard in order to make this happen. But you won’t have to try very hard to make this juice happen

The great thing about this juice is its balance – carrots can take a bit of prep if they’re bought unpeeled, but they’re super cheap and available year-round. Strawberries are a bit more expensive, especially when out of season. But they require virtually no preparation. And they taste phenomenal. Combine the two and you’ve got a sweet and savory beverage that’s pretty easy on both the wallet and taste buds.
