Carrot and Fruit Juice

This is more like a smoothie or a thick juice since the pear and nectarine are blended in a food processor or blender. You can also juice the fruits if you prefer a thinner juice. I actually like the thick texture of this drink and it provides plenty of fibre and vitamins. You can also add half a banana if you like. This is a refreshing and simple drink which I often make. If you don't own a juicer you can buy carrot juice from a health food store. Make sure you buy organic fruits if you are leaving the skin on.

A lovely juice, and packed with antioxidants and vitamins
