My dad was the one who got me started with juicing.  He juiced ages ago before juice bars popped up all over the place.  His favorite was carrot juice (and he made a lot of it).  This recipe is in homage to my dad, and it’s a perfect drink make during cold and flu season when we need to give our immune systems a good boost.

Immune Boosting Carrot Juice Recipe

This carrot juice recipe has a really delicious combination of flavors!

  • Carrots – They’re the star of the show. Buy organic if you can.
  • Apples – I like to use either Gala or Honeycrisp apples because they’re sweet and have a great flavor. 
  • Cucumber – I like to use English cucumber for juicing because the skins on thinner and and tastes less bitter than slicing cucumbers.
  • Lemon – Adds a fresh perky pop of flavor.
  • Celery – It adds flavor and its loaded with antioxidants.
  • Ginger – This adds a delicious flavor to this Carrot Juice, plus antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Turmeric – Also rich with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Is Carrot Juice Good for You

Yes.  Carrots are rich with beta carotene, lutein and zeanxanthin.  This carrot juice provides even more nutritional perks because of the  celery, apple, lemon, cucumber, fresh turmeric and ginger that we juice it with.

Carrot Juice Benefits

There’s a lot of health benefits of carrots.  They’re rich with three crucial nutrients… beta carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin,  which promote eye health.  The nutrients in carrots protect more than our vision though, they’re also important for decreased risk of heart disease and stroke.  They also help keep our immune system strong and protect brain health and cognitive functioning.  Carrots are also a good source of potassium, vitamins A, C and K which will also boost your immune system. 

This juice also has apple, celery, ginger and turmeric which also provides vitamin A, vitamin C, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Turmeric has become quite a buzz word in the world of nutrition.   It’s mostly consumed through Indian and middle-eastern dishes, but I’ll add either fresh or dried to my soups, juices and smoothies for the added nutritional boost.  It also comes in capsule form for those who would rather pass on adding it to their foods.   Turmeric helps to boost our immune system, it has cancer fighting properties, anti-inflammatory properties, it’s a liver detoxifier, it has the ability to help lower cholesterol levels, and it aids in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease (a completely devastating disease).  

Ginger also gives a boost to our immune system, it has anti-inflammatory properties, it protects against colorectal cancer, it improves brain function and may also protect against Alzheimer’s disease. You can read more about how incredibly healthy ginger is over here at my Health Benefits of Ginger post.

There’s a lot of benefits of carrot juice on its own, but with the added apples, celery, lemon, ginger and turmeric that we blend this juice with, it provides you with a good dose of extra nutrients to boost your immune system with.
