Spicy Herbal Drink

When carrots are cooked, all the nutrients are lost. Start with a little fat and a little liquid, along with whatever seasonings you choose…Orange juice is an especially nice liquid to begin with, because the reducing process concentrates both its sweetness and its acidity. (A little lemon juice at the end adds the perfect balance.) .The secret is in the oranges. They're sweeter than other varieties and really balance out the earthiness of the carrots, while the ginger adds a hint of spice. So good.

You can skip ginger if you are not big fan of it, but it helps in digestion of the raw carrots and prevent heart burn.. You can blend it with few ice cubes if you want it cold.
