Carrot Cooler | Carrot Orange Juice | Healthy fruit & veg drink recipe


Since childhood I have always been this good child who will eat vegetables and fruits, I would never complain about food as such. I did have disliked to certain veggies like bitter gourd and drumstick but not anymore. Carrot juice is something that mom used to make for me often, using raw carrots. Today I wanted to share a cooked version of carrot juice with a combination of orange which makes a great tasting drink, you can even serve this as a welcome drink and keep your guests guessing what it is ;-). So I tried this drink and it turned to be too good and served it to everyone at home and no one could actually guess what the drink was :-) I was super happy. This drink is a great way to start your day, absolutely tasty and guilt free indeed. A must try if you are beauty conscious person as carrots are known to improve skin complexion and oranges for clearness of skin.




CARROT ORANGE RECIPE

Recipe Source ~ Own
Serves ~ 4 tall glasses
Prep time ~ 15-20 mins

Ingredients

Carrots - 3-4 nos
Orange - 3-4 nos
Water - 4 cups approx
Sugar/ honey - as required

Method
  • Chop ends of carrot and wash them clean, then pressure cook with 1 cup water for 2 whistles, let the pressure settle down
  • Once it cools down make a fine puree in a mixer, to this add orange juice and 2 cupa water and sugar (if adding), again blend in mixer for 30 seconds
  • Using a strainer strain the pulp and add more water if required
Serve chill in tall glasses and enjoy 



Cooks Wisdom

- You can add cardamom powder / ginger to give little more lift to the drink but I did not add them
- Make sure carrots are partially cooked so that they have their goodness intact
- The pressure cooker carrots leave a stock use them up for making chappati dough or to add in soups/ curry
- You could also fizz the drink by adding drinking soda to it ;-)
