Benefits of Our Spinach Carrot Juice
The spinach carrot juice is one of our favorites due to its antioxidant benefits and low- calorie content. This makes the drink a great choice if you want to maintain healthy habits or follow a low calorieweight-control diet.
Carrot juice is rich in beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A when ingested. Vitamin A in carrot juice is proven to help preserve good eyesight and prevent a variety of eye conditions such as macular degeneration and cataracts.
Spinach is a powerhouse of minerals and antioxidants, including lutein, beta-carotene, coumaric acid, violaxanthin, and ferulic acid. Antioxidants neutralizedestroy unstable chemicals known as free radicals, thereby preventing oxidative stress and chronic disease.
Spinach juice contains a high concentration of naturally occurring nitrates – a type of chemical that helps widen blood vessels. This may reduce blood pressure and increase blood flow. Studies show that these natural sources of nitrates found in vegetables can help to reduce the risk of a number of chronic health conditions.
Our spinach carrot juice combines carrot, spinach, and a few simple ingredients to make a drink that is more appealing and tastes better than just carrot or spinach juice on their own. This recipe is easy to make and preserves most of the nutritional value of all fruits and veggies.
As the name suggests, the required ingredients include carrots and spinach. Fresh , organic carrots and spinach are the best type to use while preparing thiscarrot juice.
Since you are consuming the juice with raw produce, wWhen choosing carrots, consider choosing organic or peel them since this helps to reduce the risk of exposure toalways ensure that the produce is free of pesticides and hazardous chemicals. The same rule of thumb goes for spinach: the fresher the better, consider an organic option since spinach cannot be peeled.
Adding pineapple juice is an excellent way to jazz up this recipe. Pick the ripe, deliciously sweet pineapple so that you can reduce the amount of added sweetener for the drink.
We added water to dilute the pineapple and carrot juice. However, you can also customize the drink with coconut water or orange juice.
Mint is optional and imparts a cool sensation and an appealing appearance to the beverage. If it’s not your thing, simply leave it out; it won’t alter the flavor or experience.
Ice is also optional. Keep in mind that, if used, it will dilute the smoothie once it melts. If you don’t want to use ice, chill the beverage in the fridge for one hour before serving.
Storage and Freezing
For the best taste and nutritional value, we recommend having the drink right away. If there is any leftover juice, store it in the fridge for 2 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
For ease of pouring, you can keep the beverage in a large pitcher or bottle. However, it’s best to use small sealable bags for freezing, as they make it easy to thaw and store individual portions.
Place leftover raw carrots and pineapples in airtight containers and refrigerate for up to 4-5 days. If you freeze fresh fruits to ensure longer storage, partially thawing them will help in extracting more juice.
