Hey Hnb fam~ I told you I would be back sporadically once I got “used to” this whole pregnancy thing :). The morning sickness is finally gone so now I am getting back to healthy eating. 🙂 It’s nice to be able to eat more than toast and mashed potatoes.
I went for a quick Publix run today and found Organic Carrots for $0.99 per bag. These are usually $1.99 so it’s like getting 2 for the price of 1. I bought 2 bags and since it’s just me and the hubs- that’s quite a few carrots to down :). Therefore, I thought I’d try my hand at carrot juice. This actually turned out pretty yummy so I thought you may like to try it out as well.
Carrots are an excellent source of fiber, beta-carotene and Vitamin A, among other things.
Yummy Carrot Orange Juice
*Makes 2 full glasses*
2-2 1/2 cups all natural orange juice
8 whole carrots
Agave Nectar to taste ( I used about 1-2 tsp)
5-8 ice cubes
Wash carrots and then cut up carrots into 1-2 inch pieces. (This helps the blender to do it’s job.) Put ingredients into blender and blend on “Crush” option or high for 2-3 minutes. I blend mine until smooth. The consistency will be gritty but smooth. If it’s too gritty for your taste, strain in a strainer before pouring into glasses. The hubs and I prefer not to strain it but it’s up to you. 🙂
