Learn How to Make Pure Carrot Juice with a juicer or a blender with only one ingredient. Carrot juice recipes have endless variations as to the ingredients that can be added. But, this one is pure and simple carrot juice.
Making carrot juice is super easy and quick to make. Especially, when there is only 1 ingredient - carrots. That means there are only carrots to wash and prepare!
How to Make Pure Carrot Juice in a Blender
Making carrot juice does not require a juicer. In fact, there are many people who enjoy fresh juice daily that do not own a juicer.
Here are the steps to make carrot juice in the blender:
- Wash and chop the carrots and add them to the blender.
- Add a small amount of water to come a little less than ½ way up the carrots in the blender. You just need the extra liquid to start it blending.
- Blend carrots until well blended using high speed.
- Position a muslin cloth or a nut milk bag over a container to catch the juice.
- Pour blended ingredients into cloth or bag.
- Pull the edges of cloth or bag together and squeeze as much liquid out as possible.
How to Make Pure Carrot Juice in a Juicer
I find that it takes less time to make fresh juice using a juicer.
That being said, please remember that I am making enough juice to feed an army. With 6 children still at home, 8 people total are drinking the juice I make!
Here are the steps to make carrot juice in a juicer:
- Wash and chop the carrots if necessary to fit into juicer.
- Using the instructions for your juicer, process produce through the juicer. This normally involves pushing the carrots through a chute so they will be cut and juiced.
- Clean juicer and enjoy your juice.
Juicing with a Juicer vs Juicing with a Blender
As you can see, there are half as many steps to juicing with a juicer. But, cleaning a juicer takes a bit more time than cleaning a blender.
And, depending on the type of juicer you have, the cleaning time required can be considerably more. It takes me quite a bit longer with my Champion juicer than with my Breville.
You can read my review of the juicers I have owned on my Carrot Juice Recipes page.

How Do You Make Carrot Juice?
We have a Norwalk juicer. It's great because it's a press. Since no air is added, the juice can be stored for several days in the refrigerator. It does have a learning curve though. I've had carrot juice and other juices hit our 9 foot ceiling in the kitchen and spray across the breakfast counter and onto the floor in the family room, lol! I guess each juicer has it's pros and cons, but all worth it for that wonderful juice.
Gay, I am so sorry about the mishap but I have to say I did chuckle at the picture it created in my mind!!! I will have to look into the Norwalk as I have not heard of that one before!
