Trying this tasty low-carb carrot and lettuce juice will convert you into a fan of juices. You will only need a couple of ingredients for a lot of health benefits! Try it next time you crave a snack and feel up for something with nutrients instead.
This Tasty Low-Carb Carrot And Lettuce Juice Is Perfect For A Healthy Snack!
To make this tasty low-carb juice, all you need is 3 1/2 oz carrots and 7 oz lettuce. You may also add ice cubes and chopped fresh coriander.
If you want to substitute some of these, try using turnips, beets, kale, and mint. You may also want to add some spices, like pepper or cinnamon.
Although not many consider carrots as low-carb options, this vegetable is very healthy and contains a ton of fiber. The amount of fiber it has lowers the sugar content as well. Plus, you will be getting vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, potassium, calcium, and iron.
Lettuce, on the other hand, is extremely low-carb and low-calorie. Still, this vegetable contains some nutrients, like sodium, potassium, vitamin K, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and iron.
Combining these two vegetables creates a nutrient-dense juice that will give you most of the daily vitamins and minerals you need.
Because the carrots have natural sweetness, you will likely not need any sweeteners either. However, for more flavors, consider adding lime juice or apples.
For better flavor, serve this ice cold and drink it fresh. You could even drink this juice as a morning boost or afternoon pick-me-up.
If you want a more filling juice, consider adding other fruits and vegetables. Try adding apples, peaches, or berries. You can also add a touch of Stevia or a low-carb sweetener if you need to, though in most cases the juice is plenty sweet on its own.
