The Magic Bullet is a product from Homeland Housewares that functions as a juicer, blender and food processor. The machine comes with many accessories, one of which is a juice extractor for fruits and vegetables. Carrots are very dense vegetables and produce very little liquid, and extracting large quantities of carrot juice can be difficult.

Things You'll Need


Preparation

Assemble the Magic Bullet Juicer with its pitcher, plunger and cross blade according to the instructions in the Magic Bullet manual.

Place the carrots close to you so they are within reach while you prepare your juice. To save time, you might choose to use baby carrots, which are pre-peeled and pre-washed, and fit nicely into the juice extractor.

Pop out the circular center of the pitcher lid and secure the pitcher on the base, turning it clockwise until it locks. Plug the machine into a power outlet.

While the machine runs, insert the carrots into the center of the extractor (via the “pop top” of the blender lid), and push them down using the plunger.

With the lid still on and the extractor firmly in place, pour the carrot juice out of the pitcher.


Tips

  • Add apples or oranges to create larger quantities of juice.

  • If too much pulp builds up inside the extractor, unlock the machine and remove the pulp to make room for more carrots.

  • Save the discarded carrot pulp to make a healthy and delicious condiment.

  • If the blade gets stuck on a piece of carrot during juicing, turn off the machine to clear the obstruction, then resume juicing.

  • If the Magic Bullet overheats and shuts off, unplug it for a couple of hours.
