  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Set up your juicer, and gather ingredients: oranges, carrots, peaches, apples, celery, cantaloupes, cinnamon.

    Step 2

    If you do not have a juicer, or want a different texture, use a blender. For this guide we are using a juicer.

    Step 3

    Cut up the fruits and veggies. The smaller the chunk, the easier it will juice.

    Step 4

    Add the ingredients to the juicer; remember, do not overload the juicer or it will not work correctly.

    Step 5

    Pulp will come out of the juicer, you can re-juice it one or two times to get the most juice possible. After that, it can be composted or thrown away.

    Step 6

    All done! Add a sprinkle of cinnamon, or spice of your choice. Enjoy!

    Step 7

    Step 8

    Here are some other Vitamin A sources you can add to your juice: basil, broccoli, grapefruit, mango, papaya, kale, plum, and watermelon.

    A few of the benefits of vitamin A are: vision, skin, bone and tooth growth, gene expression, and reproduction.
