Carrot juice has always been the exercise freak's delight... or so you would think. But why confine it to a healthy drink that is touted as an after-exercise routine? Cause of the taste? You think just cause it is a health drink it can't taste good? There you would be sorely wrong. No, seriously. And you'll believe me when you try out some of the recipes that are mentioned in the following article. So if you need to know how to make carrot juice, you should start reading through some of the healthy carrot juice recipes mentioned below and then try them out. Not necessarily after an exercise session, but just about anytime of the day will be ideal.

Let's start off with the simplest recipe of them all that won't really take any rocket science to bring it forth, plus it makes for a really healthy recipe as well. One does not really need a juicer to make a glass of great carrot juice, one can do with a regular blender as well.
