CARROT JUICE

Posted in : BEVERAGES / JUICES / MILK SHAKES / LASSI on by : Divya Suresh

A healthy thirst quencher which is easy & quick to make.  I have made this many times earlier also… but never took the pics and posted in my blog. Now market is full of big, fresh carrots, so I was tempted to make it again immediately, took the pics to post in my blog. This juice is made by grinding the carrot, so I use that left over ( strained ) carrot paste while making saaru (rasam) Or any vegetable huli (sambar) ….. I always Grind the carrots with little water first, strain it & then add some more water… so adjust the water proportion according to the need. Here is the recipe….

 

 

 

        Ingredients :

  • Carrot – 4 big ( I got 1&1/4 glass of juice and added 3/4 glass of water )
  • Lemon – 1/2 to 1 tsp ( adjust )
  • Honey – 2 tsp ( adjust ) ( my carrots were little sweet , so 2 tsp was enough )
  • Pepper Powder – 2 pinches
  • Salt – 1 pinch

 

        PROCEDURE :

  • Wash and chop the carrot, so that it becomes easy to grind finely ( I did not peel the skin, if you want can peel the skin also )
  • Grind/blend the chopped carrot using water
  • Strain the ground/blended carrot in a strainer & transfer it into the glass
  • Now add honey, pepper powder & salt to it … stir well
  • Add lemon juice just before you serve
  • I used refrigerated carrots, if not ice cubes can be added
