Carrot Orange Juice

December 6th, 2012 at 8:08 am

I guess it’s turning out to be carrot week here, huh? If you missed my recipe from earlier this week for some grain-free and delicious Carrot Sesame Crackers, you can find it here.

About a week ago, I found myself panicking that I was getting sick. Does this ever happen to you? Suddenly you find yourself with a runny nose and a tickle in your throat and all you can think is, Oh no! Not now!

I doused myself with vitamin D, greens, plenty of fluids, and some homemade juice. And I never ended up getting sick. I don’t know if it was just coincidence or if it was all the nutrients, but I like to think this juice helped kick whatever I may have been getting to the curb.

A little sweet from the orange and carrots and a little spicy from the sulfur compounds in the cabbage, this Carrot Orange Juice is a winter winner! The color is simply striking, hinting at the superb nutrients that swirl within the glass. Packed with vitamins A and C, this is an immune-boosting beverage to say the least. To add even more bug-busting power, try juicing some fresh ginger root along with the rest of the ingredients and a little pinch of cayenne pepper to the finished product.

Fresh juices are one of the best ways to detoxify and boost the immune system. They deliver highly concentrated nutrients in an easily digestible form, making for happy cells and a happy stomach. Try these other powerful juices, too:

Heads Up…

Join me next week for a fun gluten-free “virtual” progressive dinner where some of my friends and I will be sharing healthy holiday recipes from appetizers to desserts! Stop by on Monday for a tasty edible gift idea that you don’t want to miss. (Hint Hint: There will be GIVEAWAYS!)


Carrot Orange Juice

Serves 1

3 small to medium carrots (or 1 to 2 large), peeled

2 thick slices green cabbage

1 medium organic orange, peeled (but try to leave some of the white pith on)

Push all of the ingredients through a juicer. Stir well and enjoy immediately.


  1. I LOVE carrot juice. It’s sweet but not too sweet. I like to chill the carrots before I juice it. So refreshing in the summer. Anyway, I don’t think your case is a fluke. I’ve beaten a few cold sicknesses with juice or vegetable broth fasts. I drink nothing but liquid for a whole day, and the cold symptoms just seem to disappear. If you are open to green juices, there is a really popular juice recipe by Joe Cross, called “Mean Green Juice“. Try it, I think you might really enjoy that as well.
