A juice can be full of surprises depending on what ingredients you use. I tend to have the same vegetable based juice each day, but today l decided that my fridge was full of so many fresh and wonderful ingredients that l changed the mix. There isn’t anything too unusual about this drink but it is surprisingly refreshing, with the ginger and mint adding a lovely after taste. I love that with a juice you can add different fruits, vegetables and herbs and the drink tastes different each time. One small glass is enough as this juice has a high sugar content and the juice l made today was enough for three people. I used my Oscar Neo cold press juicer which is divine and produces the most amazing juice.
Prepare your ingredients by washing, chopping or peeling as required. For the juice in the picture l used:
Half a green apple washed
One lemon peeled
One navel orange peeled
Two large carrots washed
Two large stalks of celery washed
One quarter of a fresh pineapple with the skin removed
A handful of fresh mint
A small piece of ginger depending on your taste. I used about a half a centimeter piece and the ginger taste was very strong.
Process your ingredients in the juicer, stir well and divide into separate glasses. Drink and enjoy! I accompanied this juice with a small handful of raw activated nuts (good protein source) to stop my blood sugar levels from peaking, which can make me feel quite unwell.
