CARROT ORANGE JUICE RECIPE
Required Kitchen Equipment
Step 1: Set up your centrifugal juicer on a flat and dry surface. Make sure the juicer is unplugged, then do a quick inspection of the appliance just to verify that the machine is clean and properly assembled.
Step 2: Thoroughly wash and rinse your produce. I highly recommend that you use a completely organic fruit and vegetable spray, as this will ensure that your produce is free of any unsafe or unhealthy residue.
Step 3: Peel your oranges and then break them into pieces that will fit into your juicer's feeder. Next peel your carrots using a sharp potato peeler. Generally you should not have to cut the carrots unless they are particularly long.
Step 4: Turn on your centrifugal juicer. Do make sure that you have a juice collection vessel properly in place. Gently feed your produce through the machine. It's important not to aggressively force produce through the juicer, as this will greatly decrease the life expectancy of the appliance. As fruit and vegetable juice yield will vary, you may need to use more or less carrots and oranges than what we've called for above. For 1 full serving your aim should be a juice yield of between 8 to 12 ounces.
Step 5: Carefully discard any foam that may have accumulated on top of the juice. Next stir the juice with a spoon to ensure that it has an even flavor and consistency. Once you're done stirring the juice is ready to serve.
Storage: If stored in a refrigerated airtight container this juice will keep for 24 to 48 hours. I highly recommend using glass juice jars with plastic screw on lids for refrigerator storage.
Health Benefits: This juice contains a lot of vitamin C and beta carotene, both of which can strengthen the immune system and help to remove harmful free radicals from the body. Regular consumption of the beta carotene found in carrots has also been proven to decrease the risk of heart disease and many different types of cancer.
