How to Make Carrot Juice With Milk may give you visions of a milkshake or smoothie and it is just that good! Carrot juice recipes can taste good as well as nourishing.
This may be a slightly different carrot juice than what you are normally use to. But, it is just as tasty and perfect for healthy living.
You can make it with any type of milk, so it is appeals to all.
How to Make Carrot Juice with Milk
The basic steps are the same as with any fresh juice recipe. You can use a juicer or a blender. Some juicers will juice banana better than others.
My Juice Fountain Duo has a special attachment to use for soft fruits that works well. If your juicer does not do soft fruits well, try the blender.
Wash the carrots and peel the banana. If using a juicer, juice the two now and then mix with the remaining ingredients.
For a blender, add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth. To make a smoothie you can even add ice and more or less milk to get the consistency you desire.
I think my favorite way to have this is when it is made in a blender for more of a smoothie consistency. Then again, it depends on the day! ;)
What Type of Milk Can Be Used?
Some carrot milk recipes you find will have you use sweetened condensed milk – ugh! Unless of course you are talking Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk that is healthy.
We are aiming for good taste and healthy living here!
Depending upon your diet, you can use regular milk, coconut milk or almond milk. All work well and taste great giving a smooth milky consistency.
I personally like to use fresh raw milk from our family milk cow!
How to Make Carrot Juice With Milk Serving Suggestions
As with any juice, it can be served many ways. Here are a few suggestions:
- Add honey to taste for a sweeter treat
- Add 1/4 tsp nutmeg for additional spice
- For a frozen treat: Use 4 ice cubes and blend in the blender with all ingredients.
- Can You Juice a Banana?
That totally depends on your juicer. My juicer has an attachment specifically for softer fruits. My masticating juicer does not.
If your juicer will not juice a banana well, just throw all ingredients into the blender and blend away to enjoy this delicious carrot milk.
Is This Good for Children?
Yes, like other carrot juices, this recipe is also good for children to drink and is a good way to introduce younger children to carrot juice.
Plus, depending on which milk you choose to use, they are getting another nutrient profile filled with important vitamins, minerals and enzymes.
Can My Children Learn How to Make Carrot Juice With Milk?
My children help me with all the juicing and even do it themselves.
Of course, there are safety issues. Depending on the age of your children, it may not be appropriate for them to be left alone juicing.
But, as long as you make sure your children know how to safely use a juicer, they can easily learn how to make carrot juice with milk or any other juicing recipe.
