The final day is here.
It's Friday and that also means that our fifth and final day of our Five Day Juicing Challenge is in the books!
If you've been juicing with me all week long on instagram, thank you thank you thank you! This has been such a fun week and I appreciate each and every one of you that took the time to play along with me and drink some juice!
Thanks to you guys I finally juiced for five days in a row, and I plan on continuing the juicing party as often as I can for the foreseeable future. 🙂
Today's final juice recipe is an easy one and super tasty, and FILLED with nutritious goodies. If you missed my first two recipes as part of this juicing series, you can check out my favorite green juice, Arugula and Kale Green Juice Recipe, and my favorite RED juice, Easy Beet Pineapple Lime Juice Recipe, by clicking on those links.
sunshine juice for the win
Carrot Pineapple Juice, or as I like to call it, SUNSHINE JUICE! Yummmm.
So bright, and orange, and sweet, and refreshing.
This is a great juice for early mornings and hot summer days. I know it's freezing everywhere right now, but maybe this cup of sunshine juice will bring up your spirits and brighten up your cold snowy days until summer arrives anyway.
what's in the sunshine juice anyway
This is probably the 'easiestttt' recipe that you will ever find on here. It calls for just TWO ingredients, carrots and pineapples, and takes about 5 minutes to prep and run through your juicer.
You'll have a big cup of sunshine juice ready in no time!
If you are using a cold press juicer, (I talk about what this is in our 'Juicing For Beginners' Part TWO article), you can make a big batch of this juice, store it in airtight glass bottles and freeze it for later... It will also last in the fridge for about 2 days.
You can totally skip out on the pineapples, and just make carrot juice... It's so creamy and delicious on its own that I highly recommend you try it out at one point as well.
Carrots are loadeddd with good-for-you-stuff ..
That pretty orange color is there FOR a reason. Carrots are filled with antioxidants (which help fight free radicals in the body), and of course they are super beneficial for protecting eye health.
save the pulp!
The best part about juicing carrots is the fact that you can save the carrot pulp and use it later on other recipes to make cookies, cakes, and cupcakes!! I have a carrot cake recipe up on the blog, it is Halloween related, but you can totally ignore that and make the cupcakes anyway! 😛
Alright friends, that about sums it up! If you try out this carrot juice please please let me know below in the comments what you thoughts were, if you liked it, if you changed anything, and if you happen to have Instagram, show me a picture!!

with love + gratitude,
An easy two-ingredient carrot + pineapple juice, made in a juicer. A tasty beverage that is sure to brighten up your mornings!
- 12 to 14 medium sized carrots (I used one 16oz / 454 g package)
- 1 cup of chopped pineapples (about 1/3 of a medium sized fresh pineapple)
- Wash your carrots and set aside to dry. Peel and chop your pineapple, if using fresh.
- Process carrots and pineapples through your juicer as per your juicer’s instruction manual.
- Serve in a glass cup and enjoy!
- This makes about 2 cups of juice, but that all depends on what type of juicer you have because some juicers give out more liquid than others. You can always increase the amount of carrots/pineapples, if you are looking for a larger quantity.
