This Carrot, Apple, Celery Juice Recipe is your morning bet on your sight, skin, and immune system. Who doesn't want to make sure their eyes keep doing their job, their skin keeps glowing, and their body keeps viruses and harmful bacteria away? Find out about all the Carrot Juice Benefits for your health.
We drink juices every morning. We experienced a dramatic difference in our health and daily routine since we adopted the juicing habit.
Carrots and celery might seem like an unlikely combo, but when you blend them, they taste just right. Many people have a hard time drinking vegetables in juice, so this is a good option for those who dislike the pulp in their vegetable drinks.
The juice does yield quite a bit, but drinking it is a great way to pack your body with nutrients.
Drinking celery and Carrot juice has been known for years as an energy booster, but drinking it is just as beneficial and is highly nutritious. You can drink this any time of the day, whether drinking it alone or as a mix with other juices.
The carrot and celery combo is a little sweet due to the carrots, but drinking it is an excellent way to get in your daily servings of vegetables.
If you drink this on its own, you only need to add a little ice to thin it out, but drinking this as a mix with fruits is also good.
We add apples and ginger for extra sweetness and zing! Apple juice is naturally sweet and full of antioxidants!
Your body really rewards you with optimal health and well-being.
This Carrot Apple, and Celery Juice are a refreshing, simple, and healthy recipe with only four natural ingredients. My favorite juice made with fresh produce is ready in less than 5 minutes, and even our nieces love it!

🔪 How to Make Carrot Apple and Celery Juice
Carrot juice and celery juice work perfectly in any juice recipe. They complement well because carrots are creamier, sweeter, and denser than the more watery and fresh celery.
Step 1: wash and rinse your produce
Depending on your Juicer, you may be able to throw roughly chopped fruits and vegetables in the Juicer or even without cutting them, or just roughly cut your produce into big chunks. If not, remove the apple's core and the carrots' tops. And no, you don't need to peel carrots.
I usually chop off the hardtops of the carrots but do not peel them; just give them a good rinse.
Step 2: Juice Your ingredients
Most juicers work the same way: you insert the fruit or veggie into a chute, and the freshly squeezed juice comes out. However, this may vary depending on your juicer. Just follow your juicer's instructions.
Start introducing fruits and veggies, combining the leaves and solids to prevent the juicer from getting stuck.
If you want to thin the juice a little, you can add about half a cup of water in the juicer aperture, so it drags some of the rest of the fruit and veggies.
You may want to add some lemon drops to add acidity. Add ice if you like to have it cold.
Step 3: Store (if not drinking immediately)
You can reserve the carrot juice for 24 hours in a mason jar.

🥕 Absorption of carotenoids present in your carrots
Our body's absorption of the carotenoids present in vegetables like carrots and spinach is positively affected by soluble fats. This means that adding some healthy fats to your breakfast will enhance the absorption of your juice nutrients. Think almonds.
We like eating about five organic almonds with our morning carrot juice; this provides extra fiber, good oils, and energy sources first thing in the morning!
Another way is to, eat carrots and spinach with some healthy oil such as avocados, coconut oil when cooked, or extra virgin oil in your salads to enhance the absorption of the carotenoids.

🍎 Apples health benefits
Apples are rich in phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals. They contain antioxidants, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory properties mainly due to those flavonoids and polyphenols.
As a food, apples should be part of everyone's diet, helping prevent heart disease, cancer, and other conditions like diabetes or arthritis.
Apples are high in dietary fiber, and have zero fat or cholesterol. They also contain many Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and potassium.
The tannins found in apples fight free radicals that can lead to cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses.
Today, you can find apples year-round, but they are at their best in the fall season. That's when we eat apple pies and make tons of applesauce!
🧃 Why Juicing?
Juicing for health is a great way to get your fair share of vitamins in your body efficiently and fast, first thing in the morning. However, It would be challenging to get all the nutrients of these ingredients in the morning, by chewing celery, apple, carrots, and ginger.
