This juice recipe, as with all recipes found Cultured Palate, has to pass the approval of my family. And, with 6 of our 10 children still at home, that is quite a test panel!
How to Make Carrot Juice Taste Better
If you have ever wondered how to make carrot juice taste better, this recipe is what you have been looking for!
I get it. Sometimes, you juice a bag of carrots and the carrot juice tastes bitter - ugh!
There can be several reasons for this including:
- the carrots were picked before ripening
- the makeup of the soil they are grown in
- lack of water while they are growing
Never fear, help is on its way. By adding other ingredients that are naturally sweet, you carrot juice can taste better.

Benefits of Juicing
The main benefit of juicing comes from the fact that you are separating the fiber (pulp) from the nutrients. This makes the nutrients easier for your body to absorb and use.
So, this recipe is a "punch" in 2 ways - a nutritional punch or boost and a fruity punch drink! ;)
Don't you love how I did the play on words there?
Besides the concentrated nutrition that comes in a glass of carrot juice, you also have the nutrient profile of the ingredients noted above.
How Many Carrots Do I Need for 1 Cup of Juice?
Depending on the size of your carrots, it can take from 3 - 6 carrots to make one cup of juice.
What About the Leftover Pulp?
I never waste the leftover pulp! I love to add my vegetable juice pulp to spaghetti sauce for added flavor.
Since the pulp from this recipe has so much fruit in it, I ususally give it to my pets or compost it for rich garden soil.
Some say their cats and dogs enjoy it but our cows and chickens absolutely love the leftover pulp from juicing.
