I feel like carrot juice?
Here are a few words uttered by nobody ever: “I feel like carrot juice.”
This juice may not change that. But dang, it’s invigorating.
One sip and grogginess melts away.
And believe it or not, this carrot juice tastes incredible!
Now, before describing this simple juice recipe, here’s how this carrot concoction came to be.
A house specialty at Vitamix HQ
A couple of years ago, Vitamix invited a few Vitamix bloggers to Cleveland for a visit.
Long story short, we had a very festive dinner the first night. Read: tequilla.
The next morning, the chefs served us a version of this carrot juice. I’ll never forget my reaction upon trying it:
- I need more of this!
Needless to say, I had felt similarly great after trying our homemade version. So, so good.
It took me two years to get it into my collection of Vitamix recipes. But it’s here.
Invigorating (!) citrus carrot juice. A whole-food juice (not smoothie) that’s loaded with the good stuff.
And that color!?
Go make a batch today!
Useful tips for Invigorating citrus carrot juice
No matter what kind of blender you have, load the liquid ingredients first. This helps the machine more efficiently process your juice.

Blend on high speed for at least 60 seconds. Longer processing time should get you better results.
An invigorating, citrus carrot juice. Energizing and delicious.
- water - 3/4 cup

NOTES: The original version of this recipe does not call for ginger. We made that version and photographed it as such. Then, we added another cup of ice and a bit of ginger. The result was a less vibrant color, but a juice with much more “pop”.
