SPINACH CARROT JUICE RECIPE
This healthy spinach carrot juice recipe will not only give you a TON of natural energy, but has a hefty dose of fiber!  The pineapple is a nice sweetener and flavor, make sure to keep the nutritious core in it, as your Blendtec or Vitamix high powered blender will easily pulverize it and make it digestible for you.  You can substitute apple for the pineapple if necessary, but make sure to core it first, since apple seeds aren’t nutritious like the core of the pineapple! You can use regular water or we like coconut water for added hydration, electrolytes, and potassium. Because carrots juice is so fibrous compared to other juices we make and to make it more of a thin juice consistency, you will notice in the recipe instructions for Blendtec we use the SOUP button, which runs a full 40 seconds longer than the WHOLE JUICE button, and for Vitamix, we run it a full 1.5 minutes on High before manually stopping. However be sure to add lots of ice so it doesn’t get hot and kill the live enzymes. Be sure to subscribe for more great blender recipes!

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
Carrots have strong cleansing properties that are effective in detoxifying the liver, thus very effective for acne that is caused by toxins from the blood. Carrots are also useful for treating uneven skin tones due to pigmentation. The vitamin A and other nutrients contained in carrots efficiently nourish the skin, prevent dry skin and other skin blemishes.  Chewing carrots can help clean your teeth, and is the best way to keep your mouth clean after meals. They act as natural abrasives that help in eliminating the dirt and plague from the teeth and gums. They also trigger a lot of saliva, which helps to scrub away stains on your teeth. Minerals in carrots helps to kill germs in the mouth and prevent tooth damage.

  3. Marie Madril Cardenas says:

    Blender Babes? Anyone try their recipes for the Vitamix?

    • Blender Babes says:

      Hello Marie! Welcome to Blender Babes! All recipes are tested with both a Blendtec and Vitamix blender for accurate instructions for both. :)

  4. Hello Marie! Welcome to Blender Babes! We answered this via our website and not FB – hope you get this! All recipes are tested with both a Blendtec and Vitamix blender for accurate instructions for both. :) If you try it please rate it! :)

  5. hello. i’m confused. you to press the soup button. when i press the soup button on my blendtec, it makes hot soup. do you mean press the whole juice or smoothie button??

    • Blender Babes says:

      Great question Pierre and welcome! I will update this recipe so it’s more clear. When we make a juice that involves carrots or other extremely fibrous product (i.e. celery), we find that when we press the SOUP button, which runs a full 40 seconds longer than the WHOLE JUICE button – and add lots of ice to prevent heating like a soup – that it’s more of a thin juice consistency.

  6. Debbie Korach Riney says:

    I this sounds amazing to say the least! I only wish I had a Blendtec to use, I guess I will have to do a 2 step and pulverize my carrots in my food processor and then add all the rest to my little ol' old fashioned blender!

    • Blender Babes says:

      Welcome Debbie! Yes that’s a very good idea if you don’t have a high powered blender! You might want to chop all the ingredients in the food processor, and try adding more water than the recipe calls for. :) Hope that helps! xoxo

    DO NOT blend the apple core. Apple seeds are poisonous. They contain cyanogenic acids, aka cyanide?

    • Blender Babes says:

      Yes that is correct! Thank you for sharing Tony – we usually say cored in our ingredients – we will update! :)

    Tarashaun Hausner, it says "make sure to keep the nutritious core in it, as your Blendtec or Vitamix high powered blender will easily pulverize it and make it digestible for you" in your post. Might want to correct it so people who don't read comments know not to consume!

  10. Stephanie Hsu The pineapple core can still be blended with a regular blender (although not as well or easily!) We just let people know to include since many cut it out as they are used to for consumption :)

    • Thanks for the advice, added more water & it’s great. BTW you have to amend the core thing as it clearly states to leave the apple core in, if you just read it & then made the juice you would definitely remember to put the apple core in(or the pineapple core). Just seems a little too dangerous to leave it worded that way. Thanks.

      • Leslie Williams says:

        Thanks for your comment, Michael! I changed it a bit to reflect the edits over time on this recipe. Just to reiterate: if using apple, core it first, since the seeds are not nutritionally beneficial. If using pineapple, feel free to include the core. Thanks for your feedback and happy blending!
