Orange, carrot, celery and ginger juice

IMG_6966

 

I must admit, sometimes my choice of juice in the morning is less about what would work well in terms of flavour and more about what is sitting at the bottom of the veg box.  The combinations definitely get more eclectic as the week goes on!  However, this is a happy combination of good flavours AND using up some of our copious amounts of celery!

I often juice orange, carrot and ginger as they work so well together but today I’ve added the celery and actually it works really well and just takes away that occasionally slightly too sweet, citric bite of the oranges.

PLUS celery is really good for us – it reduces inflammation in the body, it contains magnesium, which soothes the nervous system, it aids digestion, can help lower our blood pressure, can reduce ‘bad’ cholesterol and has even been shown in a couple of American studies to be effective in slowing the growth of cancer cells.  Will definitely be adding it to juices more often from now on.

(Serves 2)

  • 6 oranges
  • 5 large carrots
  • 4 stalks of celery
  • 2 inches of ginger (I love the fiery taste of ginger but you may prefer to use slightly less)

(All organic)

Peel the oranges, juice, stir and serve.
