This juice is one of Jamaica’s favorite and can be had with basically any meal at any time, but yes, it is a tradition to have with our Sunday dinner.
Not only is carrot juice delicious, it is also highly nutritious. Yes, it is good for our eyesight, as our parents always told us, “eat the carrot”.
It is also said to help in the prevention of cancer, beautification of the skin, hair, nails and a host of other benefits.
So if you are not eating those carrots that are withering in the refrigerator why not just blend them?
Carrot juice is a top order on the menu of many Jamaican restaurants and bottled in cans and bottles on various supermarket shelves. Nothing beats doing it yourself though as you can add your own flavor to it.
There are many ways how this juice can be done but my favorite is adding a tin of Supligen and a bottle of Guinness to it :-)
How about trying this simple recipe below?
