Carrot Necterne Strawberry 600.jpg

3 to 4 Carrots

2 Nectarines

1 ½ cup of fresh strawberries

I LOVE this juice. I was on a fruit high after I gulped this sweet delicious drink down. The nectarines make it a perfect summer drink and the strawberries add that extra boost of flavor. Some of the health benefits of this drink include:

High Beta-Carotene: Fruits and vegetables with bright red, orange and yellow colors often contain a good amount of beta-carotene.

Vitamin mix: Contains iron, folic acid, vitamin K, as well as naturally occurring sugars that help provide energy.

High in Lutein: Your body uses lutein to support healthy eyes and skin. Lutein is also considered an important antioxidant because it helps destroy the presence of free radicals in your body.

Vitamin C: One cup of strawberries contains an incredible 136% of the RDA of vitamin C, an effective antioxidant that can help lower blood pressure, ensure a healthy immune system, and ward off the development of age-related diseases.

This juice is a powerhouse of vitamins and nutrients not to mention it taste delicious. Happy Juicing!
