Blacky black juice

Black dessert and beverages from black carrot concentrate are now getting its popularity because of its known nutritive values. Highly packed with potent phytochemicals such as beta-carotene, anthocyanidins, polyphenols, flavonoids and other powerful antioxidants.

The problem though is you could hardly find the real black carrot in the market. If you can not find them at your regular produce vendors, try a Middle Eastern or Turkish specialty shop.

Try this recipe and if you like the taste, you can make this as your post exercise beverage... truly invegorating and thirst quenching. One serving gives you 126 calories with zero gram fat.One glass per day is the recommended frequency of intake either during or after a meal or after your heavy work-out.


8 Large Fresh Cleaned Black Carrots
1 Fresh Cut Lemon Wedge (Optional Garnish)


Install your juicer. Make sure the blades and receptables are cleaned and sterile.
Thoroughly wash and rinse your black carrots under cold running tap water.
Cut the black carrots into halves or quarter or to any tidbit size depending on the size and strength of your juicer. Prepare a tall clean clear glass under the juicer spout and begin feeding the carrots into the machine one at a time. To garnish, add one freshly cut lemon wedge to you glass. If you find the color of the juice to black and appears less palatable, you may dilute your juice extract with lemon juice.

Black carrot juice concentrate and puree may also be incorporated in many cake recipes and desserts for a healthier diet.
