Carrot and Orange Juice with Mint and Honey

Since her first taste of this fresh juice, Nandita Nataraj makes it at least twice a week.
By Nandita Nataraj

Even though I love fresh fruit juices, I am not the one to concoct them for myself. I would rather prefer a cup of hot coffee or a fruit juice straight from the pack. To top this, I am not the person to have carrots in the form of juice. I love carrots but in my stews or salads. I could never “drink” carrots. All this changed when I accidentally sipped on this drink at a restaurant on a hot day. I remember vividly. I had involuntarily asked the server what this amazing drink contained. I was pleasantly surprised when I was told that it had carrots and oranges. The drink had a refreshing flavour and yet different from all the other fruit juices that I had had earlier. It seemed to energize me almost instantaneously.  From that time on, I make this refreshing yet healthy concoction atleast twice in a week. This drink can either be had as a breakfast drink or as a refreshing drink in the afternoon

    I really wanted to know how you managed to make carrot and almond juice, but the recipe looks more like carrot and orange juice. Looks good, time to assemble the juicer!

    You could just juice the carrots and orange in a juicer and add Stevia to sweeten.

    What kind of appliance would you use for making juices? I’ve heard that some take out the pulp which contains most of the nutrients. Thanks for the help!
