See our juice storing tips to understand better how to keep your leftover juices and retain as many of their ingredients' nutrients as possible.
Fresh Oranges - feel free to substitute with any type of orange, like blood orange or grapefruit. The flavor will vary slightly, but the properties will remain about the same. Also, I am not a fan of this option, but if you don't mind fresh homemade juice and you have store-bought orange juice, you can add 2 ounces of it to the carrot ginger juice recipe.

- Lemon and garlic - if you are feeling under the water, your nose is running, and have coughing symptoms, this is the best juice for cold and flu.
Juicer - choose a cold-pressed juicer over a centrifugal juicer. they are a little more expensive but are definitely the best option in the long run. They yield more juice, and since there is no heat involved as there is in centrifugal users, your juice preserves more nutrients and oxidizes slower (lasts more).
- Blender- if you don't have a juicer, you will need a high-speed blender (affiliate link) and,
- Mesh strainer- when making juice, use any regular colander or nut milk bags. We recommend using the same ones we use to make almond milk.
- Bowl - It is always better to use a large bowl (affiliate link) to work the blender method without making a mess in the kitchen early in the morning.
Store this carrot juice in a BPA-free (affiliate link), tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
You can freeze your immune-boosting juice in an airtight container, but it doesn't stand up well to freezing for more than 3 months. It will never reach the same nutrient density as fresh juice, but you will still enjoy its health benefits.

✅ Carrot and orange juice benefits
Let's talk about the benefits of this immune-boosting drink.
- Oranges are a good source of dietary fiber, which can help with weight loss and control and bowel regularity. Fiber may also reduce the risk of heart disease and other chronic diseases like cancer. Vitamin C is vital for the immune system and helps protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Potassium is vital for blood pressure control, and folate is essential for red blood cell formation and healthy function and growth.
- One benefit of carrots is that they are a good source of beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for good vision, skin tone and health, and a robust immune system. Carrots are also a rich source of antioxidants, which help protect the body from harmful toxins and oxidative stress. Antioxidants may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and cancer.
- Ginger has a long history of use in traditional medicine and is now being studied for its potential health benefits. Some of the possible benefits of ginger include: aiding in digestion, reducing nausea and vomiting, easing pain and inflammation, helping to regulate blood sugar levels, fighting infections, and boosting cardiovascular health.
