carrot juice

Carrots are an excellent source of antioxidant compounds, and the richest vegetable source of the pro-vitamin A carotenes. Carrots' antioxidant compounds help protect against cardiovascular disease and cancer and also promote good vision, especially night vision. Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A. In addition, they are a very good source of vitamin C, vitamin K, dietary fiber and potassium.

We got lots of carrots yesterday.Both my hubby & myself love carrot juice.I made carrot juice for today's breakfast.

Ingredients
carrots 3
sugar 2-3 tsp
lime juice 1tsp

Wash & peel skin of carrots & cut them into small pieces or grate them.Now blend this cut or grated carrots with sugar & 2 tumblers of water.Strain this & mix lime juice to this juice.

This goes to Anu Sriram's refreshing drink for summer event.
