This juice is a great dessert juice or a fruity start to the day. I spotted some heritage yellow carrots that I thought would be a great addition to this juice to enhance the color and flavor. If yellow carrots are not available then simply use any carrot variety or see the substitution list below.
An interesting study shows that the lutein from yellow carrots significantly increases serum lutein concentrations and does not result in the decrease in βeta-carotene concentrations that accompanies administration of lutein supplements. This juice is high in carotenoids and lutein particularly useful for the prevention of macular degeneration and supports healthy eyes and vision.
