Carrot Juice Recipe & NutriPro Juicer Review

With all the sweets, treats, ham and potatoes, and deviled eggs we enjoy around Easter, it’s time for something deliciously healthy. Just recently, the wonderful folks at NutriPro sent us one of their cold-press juicers to try. In short: it’s amazing. It makes the absolute best carrot juice I’ve ever tasted (among many other homemade juices, too many varieties and combinations to count).

The juicer is fast, quiet, and easy to clean (they even included a handy dandy little brush to help you clean it). The juice comes out one spout and the leftover pulp from the fruits and vegetables comes out the other. NutriPro has several great suggestions on what to do with the leftover pulp, but our favorite way to use it is to feed it to our chickens!

Carrot Juice Recipe & NutriPro Juicer ReviewMy favorite thing and the most unexpected thing about our new juicer is that the kids are obsessed with it, as you can see from my 5-year-old daughter’s carrot juice mustache! They come home from school and beg to use the juicer. There’s something so fun about putting whole fruit and veggies into a machine and watching it create juice. The kids love to invent their own juice combinations based on what we have on-hand (Son, are you sure you want to add red and orange peppers to your strawberry juice?). It gets the kids in the kitchen and eating their fruits and veggies, too. Huge wins in my book.

The juicer arrived with several awesome recipes, ingredient suggestions, and other fun ideas like making vanilla almond milk or banana sorbet with your juicer (both of which I plan to try very soon). We’ve tried pineapple, citrus, spinach, strawberries, apples, greens, etc.  Our favorite so far is the carrot juice recipe. Its crisp, pure flavor is perfectly sweet and balanced.

I just finished a 3 day juice cleanse and did a big write-up about it! I love juices. I just haven't found 'the perfect' juicer for me at-home. I so appreciate your review and saying that this makes the best juice you've ever had. And carrot-apple (and with beets and ginger) is one of my faves!  Pinning!

@Averie Cooks Hi Averie! Thanks for popping over. Something about the cold-press technology really produces very pure, fresh flavors with this juicer. We seriously love it. Glad the review was helpful for you! :)
