Teaching Note:

When you want to blend hot mixtures in a blender or food processor, cool the mixture before blending. Cooling prevents steam from building up in the blender (which could cause hot liquid to spurt out the top of the blender).

Teaching Note:

Packed with vitamin A and C, this is a great summertime drink to have on hand. Make a double batch and store in the refrigerator up to 1 week.

Delicious! It will keep for a while in the fridge, just add more water as it can get pretty thick.

Does the carrot juice remain orange for long? in my experience the carrot juice turns a murky brown relatively quick. Has anyone experimented with this beverage?
