This is the best Vitamix carrot juice recipe
Easy and tasty, this whole food carrot juice has pineapple for sweetness and lemon and ginger to make it pop.
But let’s be honest: 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 any grogginess you’re feeling melts away.

Now, before describing this simple juice recipe, here’s how this carrot concoction came to be.
The story behind this recipe (circa 2016): 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 Vitamix chefs served us their 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 our 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!
An invigorating, citrus carrot juice. Energizing and delicious.Carrots, Lemon, Pineapple,
- water - 1.5 cup (354ml)
- pineapple - 3 cups (675g)
- baby carrots - 1 1/2 cups (180g)

- Add ingredients in order listed (liquid first).
- Blend on Variable Speed 10 (High speed) for 60 seconds.

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”.
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.
