Add water if you see the puree is too dry. I recommend a blender rather than a food processor. A food processor wont puree the carrots enough.
Mix with water : Start boiling water. Mixture the puree and the boiled water in a container. Make sure you mix them right.
Strain the water: Take a hand strainer and strain the mixture. You don’t want chunky juice, do you? Add a little bit of water if you want .
