This juice is a very bright and happy way to start your day! You might think that carrots and pears are a weird combination, but it’s actually really good and creamy!
I love making up juice recipes; I made this one up with the veggies and fruits I had left. The important thing to keep in mind when you invent your own juices is to make sure that you roughly have a 70% veggie – 30% fruit ratio so you don’t end up with a juice that contains too much sugar.
- Pears, 2
- Carrots, 3 large
- Fennel, a medium bulb
- Celery, 1/2 stalk
- Orange, 1
- Lemon, 1
- Ginger, 2-3 cm
Wash the fruits and veggies well (I use a brush for the carrots). Peel the lemon and the orange. Juice up!
The health benefits of the Carrot ‘n Pear Juice
This juice has cleansing properties from the ginger and the pear; it’s also packed with antioxidants, vitamin C and vitamin A (Beta Carotene) which can help protect against macular degeneration. The antioxidant compounds of the carrots also help protect against heart disease and cancer.
