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 form, so this is a good option for those who do not like 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 you're drinking it alone or drinking it 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.
Many people have been drinking or eating vegetables in juice form for years, and drinking celery and carrot juice is one of the most popular out there.
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 plant-based 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 the Juicer you have, you may be able to throw roughly chopped fruits and vegetables in the Juicer or even without cutting them; or just roughly cutting your produce in big chunks. If not, take out the core of the apple and the tops of the carrots. You don't need to peel carrots.
I usually chop off the hardtops of the carrots, but do not peel them.
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 on top to add some 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.
Make sure 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.
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!
