Beta-Carro Juice Recipe | Carrots, Apricots, Peaches
I had to try the Beta-Carro juice recipe because I bought so many apricots the last trip to the store. I love apricots and they produce a thick juice. You may have to add some water to this one. I think sparkling water would be great, but even purified water helps to thin this one out and doesn’t really take anything from the taste. That’s what I did.
Using my Omega J8004 masticating juicer I made this delicious recipe.
I always suggest people dilute the fruit juices, because of the sugar content. I’m careful about the quantity I drink at one time too and I’ve noticed in The Juicing Bible that some of the recipes for fruit juices says, “Serves 1” and I think it’s better to say “Serves 2”. I adjust for that in these articles.
If you’re like me, you’ll experience less of a sugar spike if you eat breakfast or some food with your fruit juices. If you have any medical conditions, please consult your healthcare professional. A phone call is all it takes. That said, fruit juice is great for fasting and cleanses!
Fresh Juice: Beta-Carro Juice Recipe
- 3 carrots
- 3 fresh apricots, pitted
- 3 peaches, pitted
Using your juicer, juice the apricots alternating 1/2 of a carrot between each. Juice the peaches doing the same. I had to let my Omega J8004 run for a few minutes after I finished to make sure I got all of the juice out. There still was quite a bit of juicy pulp on the auger.
Update: Beta-carotene, like all carotenoids, is an antioxidant. An antioxidant is a substance that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules; it protects the body from free radicals. Free radicals damage cells through oxidation. Eventually, the damage caused by free radicals can cause several chronic illnesses. – Medical News Today
