How to Juice with a Blender {Carrot & Beet Juice}

So far the 3-Day Raw Cleanse has been fantastic to me.  Today I downed 2 Carrot Juices [made with slightly different ingredients–I am adding one of them under this post]; and 1 huge green salad–it kept me quiet satisfied and it is already nearly 4:00 pm! I am sure that nutrient needs vary not only from person to person, but also by activity level; so we all need to adjust accordingly.

If you are just catching up with us, and not sure what Cleanse I am talking about, read these posts first:

Today I want to show you how you can juice even if you don’t have a juicer.  I will be using my kitchen “love-of-my-life” gadget–Vitamix 5200. So, strap on your seat-belts and watch the video.  If you are getting this post via e-mail, click on this link: HOW TO MAKE JUICE WITH A BLENDER, to watch the video on YouTube.

Carrot & Beet Juice

Make ~18-20 oz. 


  • 1/3-1/2 cup filtered water/kombucha or coconut water
  • 1 oz aloe vera juice
  • 4 medium size carrots
  • 1 medium size golden beet
  • 1 large green apple [I used Fuji in the video, for the lack of Granny Smith apples in my fridge]


  1. Pour liquids into Vitamix
  2. Add apples, and give it whirl, until apples are chopped [looking close to apple sauce]
  3. Chop carrots and beet, saving beet greens for a green smoothie, and add to the blender while it is running, slowly increasing speed to 10, and then to HIGH
  4. Blend for 30-40 seconds, or until ingredients become a beautiful mush
  5. Prepare a glass bowl and milk bag; pour blender contents into milk bag and strain into the bowl until all you have left in the bag is pulp
  6. Transfer juice into a glass and enjoy!

Make sure to drink juice immediately, as, unlike smoothies, it oxidized very quickly.
