Don’t let winter defeat you, beat the colds, flus and sniffles with this vitamin C rich juice recipe.
I can’t believe it’s been nearly a year since I bought my juicer; I remember Giovanni telling me I would never use it the day it was delivered from Amazon, but in actual fact not a month has gone by this year that there hasn’t been fresh pressed juice in our fridge. I would even go so far as to say that it was the best purchase I made in 2017.
There are so many benefits to drinking fresh fruit and vegetable juices on a regular basis, especially green juices, they are amazing. I won’t go into too much detail about it today, but if you are interested you can read my previous posts on the subject here, here or here.
One thing juices are really super for is boosting your immune system, and replenishing your body with vitamins and minerals after you’ve been feeling unwell. This juice recipe is packed with vitamin C, and will give you an energy boost if you’re feeling a bit run down thanks to the natural sugars in the fruit. The fresh ginger root is a natural anti-inflammatory and really great if you have a sore throat.
You can enjoy this juice chilled straight from the fridge, or if you want something a little more comforting mix half a cup of the juice with half a cup hot water for a soothing fruity tea.
- 4 large oranges
- 2 lemons
- 2 green apples
- 1 tbsp fresh ginger root
- Cut the oranges and lemons into quarters, then remove the skin and any large pips.
- Core the apples and cut into cubes; it's best to leave the skin on as it is packed with vitamins and minerals that you don't want to miss out on.
- Peel the ginger root and cut into small cubes, not too small however or it might slip through the juicer without being pressed fully.
- Work all the ingredients through the juicer of your choice. Pour into a large jar or bottle and seal tightly. Chill in the fridge. The juice can be stored like this for 3-4 days .
