I love drinking juices. LOVE! If there is a juice I am going to drink it.

I feel I got this from my Dad. In fact most of my punches (juices with milk), the recipe base came from him

One thing about Caribbean people is that we would make juice out of anything. I mean if it can be put in a processor or squeezed or blended then we going to mix it up and drink it.

We make drinks with a lot of our fresh fruits and vegetables. From cucumber to pumpkin and love to add some kind of "boost" sometimes dragon stout or a little rum.

Today. here's an easy drink of homemade carrot juice or can even be called carrot punch. You will be surprised how refreshing this drink is and how much you just would want to drink it all at one time and don't share.

Light and refreshing and also full of amazing benefits this carrot punch, also popularly called Jamaican carrot juice, is a must-try.

And if you like vegetable drinks, also grab the recipe for beet punch. Another one of my personal favorites.

Amazing benefits of carrot juice

This drink is delicious but also has health benefits that would encourage you to drink more and more often.

I know we always just think of eyes when we think of carrots. As kids, we were told, "Eat your carrots so that you can see good".

But there are a lot more benefits other than improving the health of your eyes. Carrot juice can:

  • Improve the health of our skin.
  • Boost the health of hearts.
  • Help with liver protection.
  • Aid with blood sugar control.
  • Boost one's immunity.
  • Add extra nutrition to our diets since carrot juice is low in carbs and calories but yet full of numerous nutrients.
  • Possibly provide anti-cancer effects.

Why you must peel carrots?

Honestly, I don't think you MUST peel carrots, but personally, I do.

Peeling carrots before use is really a personal choice.

Carrots' outer skin has a slightly different texture from the rest of it and it separates depending on how it's being used.

For instance with the skin on in soups, after some boiling, it separates from the top layer.

That top layer on some of the varieties is rough and I've even tasted some that are bitter.

I wash them well but I still prefer to remove that top layer of skin. I know some people believe the skin has extra nutrients. You can keep it on if you wish.

How to make carrot juice

Roughly chop up the carrots and the piece of ginger and add to your blender. If you have a juice or a food processor see notes for the method for those.

Add your cups of water to the blender and blend till fine. My ninja did great (1000 watts).

I started at the lowest and blended for a little then upped the power as it got finer.

Chopped up carrots and ginger ready to make carrot juice.

Once done, take the carrot mixture and strain it into a fine sieve strainer. You can use a cheesecloth over a strainer. Squeeze out as much of the liquid you can into a large bowl.

Set the leftover carrot pulp to the side.

At this point, you can continue in two ways.

If you want to make this with milk or you can omit the milk.

If you would like to make this carrot juice without milk check out the Additions section for notes.

Ground up carrot pulp in a fine sieve about to be squeezed to get juice.

At this point, the easiest thing is to add the juice back to the blender, add the milk, essence, nutmeg, and blend all together.

I would start with about 1/4 cup of condensed milk and adjust if more is needed. This can vary depending on how sweet your carrots are.

Once fully combined served chilled or over some ice. I much rather it chilled.

Garnish with a little grated nutmeg or dust of ground cinnamon.

Easy peasy!


Keep this punch in a container in your fridge with an airtight container. It can keep there for up to 5 days.

When ready to drink, give it a good shake or stir then serve. 


As I mentioned earlier you can also make this in a food processor or even use a juicer.

Food processor method:

  • I have done this numerous times before when I didn't yet have a powerful blender.
  • Chop up the carrots and ginger and add to your processor. Add the water and grind till carrots are very fine.
  • Remove pureed carrots and strain. Add liquid back to the processor and add remaining ingredients and combine. You can also use cooked carrot here.

Juicer method:

  • Juice your ginger and carrot through your juicer.
  • The juicer would do your separating of pulp from the juice so you don't need to strain.
  • Once juiced, in a large bowl add your remaining ingredients and mix everything together.

Additions | Substitutions

Alcohol: It's popular to add some Guinness Stout, dragon stout, or even a shot of rum to this to make it an adult-only drink.

Omit milk:
Want a carrot drink that is just refreshing but with no milk? Omit the milk and just make a carrot ginger drink. Sweeten with sugar to your liking.

A touch of lime adds a nice level of flavor to the drink. Both with milk and without milk. Simply squeeze about half a lime into the combination.

Milk substitutions: If you do not use regular condensed milk and would prefer to use maybe plant-based milk instead like coconut milk, oat milk or almond milk, or even plain unsweetened milk, you can.

You will just need to use your sweetener of choice, if needed, after adding milk.


  • Please stay away from those big bags of "juicing" carrots. They do not taste great. Try finding the freshest carrots that you can find. Most times these would be organic ones free of any chemicals.

  • Some people have issues with raw carrots, if this is you, you can easily do steam or boil carrots till tender, and then proceed with the recipe as instructed.

  • The leftover pulp can be used to make nice baked goodies, like carrot cakes or muffins, and can be even used to make soups like my carrot ginger soup.
